    This stunning new release of the classic R.A. Salvatore novel recounts the origins of Salvatore's signature dark elf character, Drizzt Do'Urden. This title kicks off The Legend of Drizzt series, which will showcase the classic dark elf novels in these new audiobook editions.

    Story
    Would you listen to Homeland again? Why?

    Absolutely! And I can't wait to hear the other novels in this series (and all of R.A. Salvatore's other works as well). Books by D&D authors sometimes go unnoticed and unread because people think they are "toy books" or "gaming non-sense". NOT TRUE. The books by Salvatore are quite in-depth, exciting and wonderfully written. You can loose yourself in his combat scenes, feeling the moment rather than reading (or listening) to it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This book is actually a "flashback", written after the Icewind Dale Trilogy, so it was thrilling to learn of the past and home-life of my favorite purple eyed dark elf...


    Which character – as performed by Victor Bevine – was your favorite?

    Victor Bevine's Drizzt was wonderful, but he brought Zaknafein to life for me.I was certainly glad he didn't affect any silly Earth-ly "accents" in his reading. A faked Irish or Scottish accent would have destroyed this work. Victor Bevine did a 5 Star job with this novel. I certainly hope he reads more of these works!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I actually did listen to it all in one go. I am privileged to work in an environment that allows me to listen to my iPod while I work my 10 hour shift, so I finished this one in 1 day :)


    Any additional comments?

    I read this book years ago when it was first printed, having been an R.A. Salvatore fan (hooked since The Crystal Shard, his first work), and I was pleasantly surprised to see this wonderful work made available on Audible. The books of Salvatore were my mainstay reading when I was beginning my journey into the fantasy world of The Forgotten Realms, at my own gaming table and on my bookshelf. this is a WIN for Audible Frontiers!
