HeroBook - 2016
The saga of dark elf Drizzt Do'Urden has become a fixture in the fantasy genre, with a string of New York Times best-selling novels going back to 1988. Hero is the follow-up to Maestro and Archmage, and final book in the Homecoming trilogy.
Something akin to "peace" has come to the Underdark. The demon hordes have receded, and now the matron mothers argue over the fate of Drizzt Do'Urden. Even so, it becomes clear to one matriarch after another that while the renegade drow may come and go Menzoberranzan, the City of Spiders will crawl forever on.
And so Drizzt is free to return to his home on the surface once again. Scores are settled as lives are cut short, yet other lives move on. For the lone drow there is only a single final quest: a search for peace, for family, for home--for the future.
Hero picks up where Maestro left off, in a sweeping climax to an epic tale.

SummaryAdd a Summary
Drizzt Do'urdden, Artemis Entreri, and Jarlaxle return to Gauntlegrym, having successfully rescued Entreri's love, Dahlia, from Matron Mother Baenre's clutches -- but Drizzt is not unchanged. Mind warped by an Abyssal madness and Yvonnel Baenre's curse, he believes the reality where his friends have been reborn to be a lie. It is now up to an eclectic collection of allies and former-enemies to cure Drizzt.
Gauntlegrym is not completely clear of danger either, as the Primordial Fire Elemental that powers its Great Forge is set to explode again in decades' time. Led by Cattie-brie Battlehammer herself, a team of Faerun's greatest mages assemble to rebuilt the broken Hostower of the Arcane in Luskan to properly harness the Primordial's power before it can erupt.
Menzoberanzen also moves in the aftermath of Llolth's plot to release the denizens of the Abyss into the Underdark. While great demons lurk, the Great Houses of the drow city seek security and power. And in the wake of her father's actions, the reborn Yvonnel considers the meaning of true power and knowledge, especially as it relates to Gromph, Jarlaxle, and the renegade-turned-ranger, Drizzt -- and finds herself questioning her apparent place as Llolth's chosen, destined to become Matron Mother of Menzoberanzen once again.
