    "Captivating! One of my all time favorites"

    Excellent character development, plot, and surprises.
    One of R.A. Salvatore's best works, this book I'll always be in my top 5. Salvatore's writing style has some of the best word painting I've ever read. His style allows you to feel the emotions of the characters as your own, and lose yourself in the beauty of his descriptions. His creation of this world is masterful and all the intricacies he includes bring it to life.
    Highly recommend!

    "Couldn't put it down!"

    Great book with an incredible reading. it was a little tough to grasp at first if you don't know anything about this preexisting universe; however the author does a good job of bringing you up to speed.

    "Excellent story, horrible reading"

    Victor Bevine has a great voice, but for whatever reason, the story felt rushed. It was often difficult to follow along. Salvatore's writing pattern is harsh, but the entire first chapter felt like a run on sentence. It did not really get better moving forward.

    "I can't believe it took me this long..."

    I loved this book! The story made me chuckle, cry and hold my breath. Absolutely enjoyed every single moment. I'm glad, after a few months on deciding whether or not to five this series a go, that I did.

    My DM likes to quote a few verses from here. Hope the next book is just as enthralling.

    "Simple, solid story well told."

    Not just a tie to the famous role playing game series, the famous Drow ranger has his origin story told and every character is brought to life by the narration well.

    "Must be one of the best starts to a legend ever!"

    A must read for any d&d fan. This awesome book starts the journey for Drizzt do Urden and makes you want to read the rest! I already own the paperback version but just had to get the audiobook. Victor Bevine narrates it just perfectly!

    Story
    "Origins of a legendary tabletop gaming character"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. Many of my friends know my love of fiction and gaming, particularly the imagination and fun of pen-and-paper role-playing games like D&D. Anyone familiar with D&D knows of Drizzt from Menzoberranzan, the franchise's legendary dark elf. Salvatore, through Bevine's excellent performance, brings this two-dimensional icon to life. What's not to like?


    What did you like best about this story?

    Adding this dimension to a much-admired gaming legend allows the reader to experience the Forgotten Realms brought to life, through the early years of one of its most memorable characters. Bevine's performance adds the right amount of suspense, darkness, elation and trepidation.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The cat. (Trying to avoid spoilers).


    Any additional comments?

    I particularly like this series for the reasons mentioned above, but standing alone from their D&D background I believe they make an interesting fantasy story. No prior knowledge of polyhedral dice or character sheets is required. The story stands on its own merits.

    Story
    "Great audio adaptation"
    Where does Homeland rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty highly, I'm a big fan of the Drizzt books so finding them as unabridged audio books makes me very happy... although perhaps gives them an unfair advantage as they start high up the list compared to some of the others in my library!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Drizzt! I love the character! More fairly I have to say Zaknafein as he's very well portrayed by the narrator, with Alton De'Vir coming in as close second, the narrator does a fabulous job with his slightly insane vengeance.


    Any additional comments?

    Really looking forward to listening to the rest of the Drizzt books I'm hoarding in my library now I've got some free time!
