    "A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire) would have to be honestly a cult classic and the best fantasy and action book I have ever read. It is the first novel of many in the A Song of Ice and Fire series and it has been remade into the popular Game of Thrones TV show which has been wildly popular. If you are a fan of the show, you will absolutely love the books as it gives you more in-depth information about characters and stories that are not broadcasted in the TV series. I would highly recommend you read it if you are a fan and even if you're not, you will surely enjoy this book and the others in this series. "

    "This is just one of those books that really angers lore nerds as it conflicts heavily with established story of the character Drizzt. For example there are a multitude of characters in this series that the protagonist meets that are not verified elsewhere by official sources at Wizards of the Coast. A decent read, but may anger lore purists."

    "If you are looking for classic, beautifully-written fantasy, this book is perfect. Amazingly solid writing with a winding, intricate plot. This will not be the most exciting or unique book you've ever read, but is definitely worth the time spent with it."

    "One of the fathers of Classic Fantasy/Action novels, R.A. Salvatore does not disappoint with his books featuring world-beloved Drizzt Do’Urden. Even in this novel, which I believe is the fourteenth, Drizzt sets out to fight and save the north from invading orcs. It's not all fighting though, there are some melancholy moments in the novel, and a few shake-ups that were surprising to even me. I'd definitely recommend this if you're a Salvatore or Fantasy/Action fan!"

    "This book has become one of my favorite recent pickups and a great fantasy and adventure novel. The story of Caius Crispus is very interesting. It has all of the elements of a great fantasy novel, but the story is unique and as you learn of how Valerius II tries so hard to maintain the kingdom he controls and the role Caius Crispus plays in all of it, it hooks you in and keeps you wondering what's next to come."
