    Story
    "A riveting epic of sword and spell."

    R.A. Salvatore is one of my favorite writers because he brings such life to his characters and to the struggles and battles they endure. The Legend of Drizzt is my favorite fantasy series because it is so exciting and different from many others.

    As for the narration, Victor Bevine does a phenomenal job. His varied voices for each character are believable, and distinctive. His pacing during fight scenes is as rapid and precise as it needs to be, and he makes the suspenseful moments even more so.

    All in all, a great listen.

    "thoroughly enjoyed this book"

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. the pace was fast, but not too fast to not be able to follow along with the story. the story itself kept me enthralled with the characters. this book was recommended to me by a friend, and this is the only book I have ever talked about with a friend, wondering what was going to happen next. I look forward to the next book eagerly/

    "This book will change your life"

    This book at least for me, inspired me to live a full and more productive life. It also gave me a better ability to stick to my own morals and thoughts. Masterful tale that all fantasy lovers should explore.

    Voice acting was absolutely superb.

    "wow"

    Good performance. Bit hard to follow due to the complex names of things and characters but you soon catch on. The battles are grand and Drizzt's character journey is a joy to follow. 1st book i've read of his and the Drow culture is engrossing to learn about. Political movements and religious zealoutry akin to Game Of Thrones but in one book th hat takes far less time to read. It feels like the entirity of the Drow have it out for Drizzt, and in the next book possibly the rest of the Underdark too...

    "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.

    "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!

    "My favourite of the Drizzt books ..."
    Where does Homeland rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The author gives an unparalleled insight into the dystopian world of the Drow and is easily my favourite Fantasy audio book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Homeland?

    So many ... the intrigue and outright war between the Drow houses, the Drow Academy, Maya Do'Urden (who seems to be a bit more of a character than I remember). So many!


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

    Drizzt. Obvious answer but true.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Only on HBO" ;-)
