Assassin Artemis Entreri whisks his kidnapped victim, Regis the halfling, south to Calimport and into Pasha Pook's vengeful hands. If Pook can control the magical panther Guenhwyvar, Regis will die in a real game of cat and mouse.

An unexpected ally arrives just as Entreri springs a trap. But can Regis survive unscathed?

I think instead of the Icewind Dale trilogy this should be called The Halflings gem trilogy.

Drizzt Do'Urden struggles with his own inner voices, voices that call him back to the pitiless depths of the Underdark. But louder still are the voices of his newfound friends, and the dream that drives Bruenor Battlehammer on to reclaim Mithral Hall. Time and again they're told to turn back, that some dreams can never be fulfilled, but on they fight - together.

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.

Just completed the crystal shard. I remember the first time I read this book it was slow and it took me forever to complete. This time around choose the audio version. I enjoyed it a little better but I still felt like it was not as good the Homeland trilogy. Did you know technically this is the first book he wrote in the series and it shows. Still I do recommend reading it if you're going to try this series out.

On the way home one day, 13-year-old Keith Croft stops at a neighbor’s yard sale and discovers a book for Crypts & Creepers that the lonely old woman says belonged to her granddaughter who disappeared without a trace. Days after he convinces his friends to try this bizarre game that doesn’t require electronics, strange noises in his closet wake him. His increasing inability to focus on anything other than a girl who vanished before he was born - and his obsession with her NPC ranger - drives him to dig deeper into the past, searching for what really happened to her.

I was not expecting such a good book... Man this was a good book and a good introductory into dungeons & dragons. Well at least the basic mechanics and storyteller. Here it's called C&C (crips and creepers) I really enjoyed this book and Hope define more in this same style.

Hostile in ways that a surface-dweller could never know, the tunnel-mazes of the Underdark challenge all who tread there. Among these souls are Drizzt Do'Urden and his magical cat, Guenhwyvar. Exiled from his drow homeland, Drizzt must fight for a new home in the boundless labyrinth. Meanwhile, he must watch for signs of pursuit - for the dark elves are not a forgiving race.

I remember many years ago at Books-A-Million I saw this pretty cool looking book sitting on the shelf. "exiled" I saw that it was book 2 in the series and I looked for book one but could not find it. so I decided to buy it and start reading. I was not disappointed.

now many years later I am on the audio journey of Drizzt. after completing the book I'm reminded of my first time picking up the series. the book is just as good as I remembered.

I definitely recommend everyone read the drizzt series if you are a fantasy fan or a fan of D&D.

Princess Celeste is bored to tears, and her brothers, Prince Jude and Prince Torrin, aren't doing much better. In a palace where all they have to look forward to are endless games of croquet and barley-water soup for supper, they don't have much by way of excitement. Until the one night Torrin sees a light in a forgotten tower of the palace, and they meet a wonderful and mysterious aunt who unlocks a brand-new world of adventure they will never forget.

What really caught my attention about this book was to cover art it's very good and does a good job standing out. I also enjoyed the magic/technology aspect of this book I feel it was very well implemented.

On the downside I don't feel like there was much meat to the story. It kind of felt more like a teenage boy's superhero/furry sex fantasy. The characters had no depth, I like stories with more rounded and developed characters.
