I've always loved the stories of Drizzt the dark elf, and while my heart longs for the Salvatore's Safehold, the very first Drizzt novel in the trilogy, I have to say that I truly enjoyed this series of novels that came out later, due to their rich defining shorelines and Byers love affair with the dark elf universe. Be warned: This series will connect you to a great line of audiobooks that have just been released at Audible, some 200 such books in the Forgotten Realms in the Dungeon and Dragons family of books. Some of these books are so very good listening, that you'll want more.
This is such a series in that family.
It's dark. It's Machiavellian. It's descriptive and delightful. Its got great characters, dark purposes, vast family houses in turmoil, royal intrigues and forbidden magics. It is, in a word, magnetic. I enjoyed this long ago, and again today. So much so, that the entire series is now in my Audible library.
So, if you do NOT want such engrossing and entertaining listening, move along.
Otherwise, enter the dark elf kingdom of Menzoberranzan, mortal, and be satisfied with its dark gifts!
great portrayal of these characters that would otherwise be the antagonists.
well the rest of the series..Obviously if you enjoy menzoberranzan but would like a tale not centered around Drizzt this is a must have.
I don't generally review books..but I wanted to comment on on the Narrator. She's fantastic her voice reminds me of Marina Sirtis's.She has a great pace and cadence.
As I grow as a listener from a pure reader a good narrator has become as important to the experience as the quality of the writing. Any fan of Dnd Fantasy will find Rosalyn an enjoyable listen that really delivers an excellent performance
nah it was all fun
my review goes for rest of series.. I don't want to say more for fear of Spoilers
I recently listened to the first trilogy about Drizzt Do' Urden. I really enjoyed the books but by the third book I missed the setting of the Underdark and Drow society. So I was excited when I discovered this set of books. I was taken back into the Underdark and backstabbing Drow society, the narration is great and the storyline is satisfying and easy enough to follow. I am just finishing the second book now and I think I'll end up making it through the whole series.
If you like D&D, then you will absolutely love this book. It has a wide variety of demons and creatures that will light up your imagination.
I believe Rosalyn's performance is very good for the most part. Sometimes the voices sound similar, but I enjoyed the book very much.
I usually listen to the book while commuting to work and back.
I love the Drizzt Do'Urden series. Drizzt is why I am here. sword of truth I will get after Drizzt, money allowing.
it was a hard book to read and imagine. my first dark elf book.
Pharaun, because he is smart.
I liked the way she did them all
no because I like the whole book.
actually I like the whole series. 5 stars all around for each book in the series and for the series as a whole.this book along with the rest got me to the reading grade level to get my GED! this series will always remain special to me.
I have listen to a few books and this was my first from Audible, I loved the story and the books presentation.
the other books, when I get them.
I have gotten used to male narrated books but, Rosalyn Landor set this book off. She made it feel like the story was being told by the spider queen her self.
War of the Spider Queen. Dissolution: The truth behind the lies!
if your a fan of the forgotten realms books this is a great series i would however suggest staring outwith the dark elf trilogy to enrich your enjoyment of the story with an introduction to drow society
Intriguing Ruthless entertaining
Final climax battle
No but really like her reading giving charters differnt voices and so forth
Really enjoyed the book will get next in series
This is a tough book. It sets the scene for a major change in a really fun area to read about in Faerun. I read this series years ago and I am revisiting it via Audible. Not the best book in the series, but it sets the scene. If you can make it through this book, the ones that follow are really good.
Not one particular scene. I enjoyed the Rild and Feron storyline.
the other two storylines - Gromph vs Quenthal and the Ched Nasad ambassador.
The final battle was a little anti-climactic. I would have preferred the victory over the insurgents to be less complete.
I am actually looking forward to the expedition to ched nasad. but 1/3 of the story was fun. the rest was superfluous.
