    "Dungeon and Dragons lore at it's best"

    I bought this novel after numerous reccomendations, and I was blown away. A great reversal of male and female emotion extremes, a very interesting tale with plenty of twists and turns to keep you engaged.

    "Narrator Didn't Keep My Attention"
    What would have made Homeland better?

    A narrator that helped moved the story along. It felt as if the narrator had one cadence and didn't venture from it.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I couldn't get beyond the first couple of hours.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It felt as if the narrator had one cadence and didn't venture from it.

    "Very entertaining and enticing."

    Story is well read and entertaining. The descriptive style of the author is concise but also gives nice reminders to keep the story flowing and not distract from the emotion. Also the audible version has a preview of book two at the end! Thank you!

    "not great, but quite good."

    This will not be the best book you will ever listen to, nor the best written. But it works very well and somehow captures the listener. It's like pizza, there are better foods, but it's quite tasty.

    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.

    Story
    "A great book and an excellent true telling"

    This book came after the Crystal Shard and I remember as a young man approaching the prequel trilogy with apprehension... I'm glad I picked up the book then and I'm glad I started my audible adventure with Homeland. An excellent starting point to the story and characters that I have come to love over the years.
    Victor Bevine masterfully navigates the voice delivery in such a way that you soon accept that this is how they always sounded. Instead of detracting, he manages where so many other narrators fail... he adds to the flavour, the ingredients of the book become that much, if not sweeter, then balanced.

    I took out a years subscription and got the first 6 books; I guess audible has a lot to thank both Mr. Salvatore and victor Bevine alike!.

    Highly recommended

    "When you home is not where your heart is..."

    I had to listen to all three in this series, because I could not believe how much I enjoyed the first or the second... I kept expecting disappointment.

    I found none! A truly magical tale.

    "Excellent story, okay narrator"

    What a gripping tale about drow society and the man himself, Drizzt. A great story from start to finish. The complex names really threw me off to begin with and I was genuinely concerned that I would not be able to follow the story, but it all works itself out as the tale progresses.

    The narrator does an okay job of reading the story, he has a deep sullen voice, but he can been a little monotonous and struggles to give different characters a unique voice.
