A nice D&D universe book, story is interesting enough, and while Drizzt is something of a reverse Mary Sue in-universe, the character himself is likeable. Book felt like something of a preamble to another story (which, given its position in the series, makes sense).
TL;DR Cool book, good setting and direction, for fans of D&D and detailed combat descriptions.
The amazing fantasy world of the Dungeons and Dragons realm is truly captured in this book in a way that is approachable and inviting. I just picked up the second Audiobook with no hesitations about loving it!
I would recommend this book to a friend
when Drizzt and Zach . . . wait, no spoilers :-)
His voice brings great energy to the story
I enjoyed the book and am moving on to the next book in the trilogy
this is one of the most amazing book series I have ever read. I started by getting the omnibus of the first trilogy (Homeland, Exile, Sojourn) after finishing it on the second day I ran out purchased the three individual books that day and read them again. I then ran out and bought the remaining books that were available at the time I believe there 11 back then. I currently own the paperbacks that I loan out, the hardcover for myself, the kindle version and am now buying the audible versions. If you love fantasy books then just buy them you won't regret it
Overall, the book was great. I was hard pressed to put it away. I wasn't sure I'd get used to the narrator but he did an excellent job with voices and ended up being perfect. The story itself is amazing, it sort of dropped off at the very end unexpectedly in my own opinion but that only makes me want to read the next book even more. If you love fantasy, elves, magic, or dungeons and dragons the table top game then this book is perfect.
I've often found certain types of high fantasy to be intimidating for new readers - especially when the books are set within such a widely developed universe as the Forgotten Realms. This series, however, is the perfect introduction to such books. Salvatore does a fantastic job of making this story accessible to any audience. At its core, this book is a coming-of-age tale, packed with adventure, betrayal, political intrigue, and moral conundrums. I highly recommend this for anyone who loves fantasy.
