Legend of Drizzt35 books in series
Travel to the Forgotten Realms’ drow city of Menzoberranzan to discover the origins of the heroic dark elf, Drizzt Do’Urden. A prequel to the renowned Icewind Dale Trilogy, the Legend of Drizzt catapults you into the world of sorcery, swords and the ultimate fight against evil.
In the Underdark, where a sinister society of drow (a race of dark elves) rule, Drizzt struggles with his race’s heinous acts of cruelty. A gifted warrior with a valiant moral code, Drizzt goes on an epic adventure that sees him encounter the terrifying Spider Queen, as well as wizards and dragons, in a quest to find his place.
Having recorded over 200 titles, Victor Bevine smoothly switches from the malevolent Matron Malice to the heroic Drizzt with ease. Bevine’s moving performance throughout the Legend of Drizzt conveys the urgency of battle, the horror of the drow’s crimes and the heroic actions of the enthralling central character. Clearly delivering some of the Forgotten Realm’s more unusual names and places, this seasoned narrator makes it easy for listeners to keep up with this fast-paced story, even if they haven’t yet listened to the earlier works of R. A. Salvatore.
This writer’s love affair with fantasy fiction began when he was gifted J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings in college. It had such an impact that Salvatore started studying journalism with a taste for writing. After the release of his earlier Icewind Dale Trilogy, it became clear that fans had fallen hard for one of his supporting characters; the heroic silver-haired elf. Realising Drizzt’s popularity, the author developed the Legend of Drizzt to quench his readers’ appetites. Featuring themes of friendship, redemption, belonging and courage, alongside a setting in one of Dungeons & Dragons’ Forgotten Realms, these listens appeal to both teens and adults alike.
To date, Salvatore’s books have sold more than 10 million copies. A regular fixture on the New York Times best seller list, his works have been translated into numerous languages, including German, Turkish, Spanish, French, Polish and Russian.
