Drizzt Do'Urden has settled in the windswept towns of Icewind Dale. There, he encounters a young barbarian named Wulfgar, captured in a raid and made the ward of a grizzled dwarf name Bruenor. With Drizzt's help, Wulfgar will grow from a feral child to a man with the heart of a dwarf, the instincts of a savage, and the soul of a hero. But it will take even more than that to defeat the demonic power of Crenshininbon, the fabled Crystal Shard.

I would definitely listen to this book again. Maybe two or more times. Why? Because the nonstop action and adventure. The way that Salvatore captures the world is profound and detailed and makes me feel like I'm beside the characters.
My favorite character in this book was Brunner. He is witty and stubborn and plays a good prank on drizzt. I couldn't help but laugh and smile whenever he was in the chapter.
Victor Bevine is an awesome narrator. He makes each character feel distinguished and gives each the charm and/or personality as if he were actually that character.
This book definitely made me laugh at several parts, as well as bite my nails or even feel disdain at others. Defiantly kept me at the edge of my chair.
I listened to the first 3 Drizzt books, And now I am glad to find this new series that carries on his adventures with other heroic characters. I ignored these books back when I used to actually read scifi/fantasy, now I wish I hadn't, excellent yarns. And by far, Bevine is the best narrator for the genre, not a fault can be found -- clear, good tone, his voice adds enthusiasm and excitement during exciting scenes, he does enough voice imitation for different characters to make it clear who is talking, but not corny either. And of course, the story was very good, else I wouldn't give it 5 stars. Highly recommended!
My favorite book to date.
Drizzt is my favorite character and has been for over 20 years. I was thrilled to see these books finally hit audio.
Victor was fair to me. I an use to mark thompson from the star wars and he is my favorite preformer.
The honor in the character of Drizzt.
This is my favorite all time book and the original apperence of Drizzt. I am glad to finally see this book come to audio.
One of the better books I've read
Constant flow through the story line and not very predictable which helps hold your attention.
I'm usually underwhelmed by narrators, but Victor is an exception. He does a great job in this series.
Read the pre-series before this one and everything will make better sense.
I picked up this book in paperback almost 20 years ago and it introduced me to the best epic story since i had read tolkien`s the lord of the ring.It is an early book by salvatore,a lot of action in one book ,i got hooked on these charaters anyway.If you`re new to these books you might want to start to start with the book Homeland and the subsequent novels who are really gems in fantasy literature.also the narrator is excellent with all the different voices and in the battle scenes.don`t miss this saga!
Like most folks, I really connected with Drizzt. I think many of us have moments where we feel like singular bastions of decency in a world that needs fixing. He is unwaveringly loyal and has a strong moral compass - I can get behind a character like that!
I truly enjoyed Mr. Bevine's voice talents for the various characters, along with the ease applied to speaking unusual words and names that are frequent fare in the fantasy genre.
No, but that didn't make the story any less enjoyable.
I will be getting the balance of the Icewind Dale trilogy, so that says something :-)
yes and have this is a great book with deep characters
it is noble and you can see the characters grow. also the battle mechanics are quite good
I listened to it in in 48 hours
Make it original. Tolkien was great for his time, but fantasy and fiction have improved much since them. Dwarfs that mine and have Scottish accents, Barbarians that are massive stupid brutes, halflings with hairy feet, who are lazy and love to eat. Seen it a million times before, and better done as well. Exposition was crappily done and boring. I guess if this is the kind of fantasy you are looking for it fits the bill, or you are trying to relive old D&D memories (which there's nothing wrong with) but for me personally I'd rather just go read LOTR again if thats what I'm looking for.
Not much, sounded like he was trying to talk in MANLY DEEP STRONG GUY VOICE.
Boring, I have to admit, I got a few chapters in, then put it down. Instead returned this and got the Scott Lynch "The Lies of Locke Lamora" and then enjoyed the whole Gentelmen Bastard series much more.
Go try some Brandon Sanderson or Patrick Rothfuss instead of this.
I am a "Life is Awesome! Strive to be Worthy of it." student of life kind of guy. Feeding on Chaos and Empowering the Good. Group Hug!
I am a little disappointed with Drizzt character in this book. He has pretty much lost his edge and most of his magic. Instead they have a Barbarian that Drizzt trains and it seems he has the flair that Drizzt had in the original series. It was a good book, I am just a little disappointed I am not sure I am going on with this series.
Monotone and soft. Very little inflection.
Have read the books, which are amazing.
Caution while operating heavy machinery. Will cause drowsiness.
