    A little quirk that I noticed was the turn in prejudice between this story and Sojourn. Sojourn delivered a metaphor for racism; people hated Drzzt because he was a black elf and therefore evil, pretty easy to pick up on the message. In this story, there is prejudice toward the orcs and goblins and giants, though. Granted, they probably are evil, and I dont want my daughter dating them, but still. The shift can be best demonstrated in that Drzzt tells the barbarian hes training, Wulfgar, that he left his people because, They kill, yet later on he says to Wulfgar, I wont start the fun without you, referring to killing a bunch of giants. Granted, the giants had killed a couple dwarves, so their deaths were warranted, but to be so flip about it seemed hypocritical to me. Either way, I liked this a lot, but it isnt anything stellar.
