I've always heard how great the stories of Drizzt are. This made no sense in parts. He is some how the only member of his race that can see evil for what it is. The rest are brainwashed from birth. His brainwashing just never caught on. which isn't really explained. I find it a major plot hole. The other characters make sense and are great for the most.
What a great first book. Bought this to listen to on a road trip and listened to the whole thing today while I drove. Even bought the second one and downloaded it as I listened to this one so there would be no down time.
Very good story and great narration.
this was an amazing book to get introduced to the dark side of D&D. The whole book has you on the edge of your seat wondering what's going to happen next. great plot and an over all good time. a great read ( or listen lol )
Fun, if predictable and having nothing to make it stand out. If you like D&D fantasy novels, you won't be disappointed by the story.
Unfortunately, the narrator appears not to have been given a pronunciation guide as everything unusual is pronounced like he were guessing. And that's not just names and places, there are a bunch of uncommon words that were pronounced inexplicably.
Ugh. Didn't like the narrator. Didn't like the story. Didn't like the characters. Too slow to get started and moving. I didn't finish the book, and thats rare for me not to struggle through to the end.
I really enjoyed the dark world where this story takes place. I kept waiting for Drizzt to leave and explore more of Faerun, but I suppose I should have known I'd have to wait since there are 20+ books in the series already.
I'm am hooked....so ready to continue with the next book in the trilogy. The narrator was wonderful...he used his voice to really portray all the characters...The story was awesome.... definitely not what I expected.. but so worth it
