The Legacy of the Drow Book 1


The Legacy by R.A. Salvatore

This book surprised me. It discusses elements of racism within different cultures and feminism undertones.

Drow's or dark elves are very disliked. Drizzt Do'Urden is a favorite character and while accepted by his friends he encounters allot of racism on his journey. It's only minorly touched on in this book, but you could sense it is a bigger issue in Drizzt's other tales.

The feminism undertones come from Wulfgar and Catti-brie. Catti-brie is a very strong female protagonist and she is marrying a barbarian. Wulfgar comes from a tribe of barbarians that treat women like slaves. So Wulfgar is struggling internally with Catti-brie joining battles, speaking her mind, and not heeding his every word.

In the end they make up, but at that point it is a little late, sadly.

Legacy of the Drow consists of four books. Of which I own all. I am excited to keep reading the series!! More to come later!!

Happy Reading!
