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.
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...
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!
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 :)
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!
