I enjoyed the Icewind Dale Trilogy, a story of the earliest days of Drizzt's existence above ground. I enjoyed watching the Companions develop their relationships. The story is fast paced, plenty of action. Victor Bevine did a good job of narrating.
The writing and characters get better for each subsequent book in the series. This is not a sophisticated story. It is a straightforward tale of friendship and adventure with cliff-hangers as common as any tv show or radio serial. The performance is good and the writing moves the book along to a satisfy conclusion.
great story and writing, but the end seemed rushed, an entire battle crammed into an epilogue...saddening, for an author with such artistic talent for action sequences it was about two sentences worth of words to describe.
