Publisher's Summary

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.

great book

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!

6-7/10

i had high expectations for this and it did not disappoint. I enjoyed Salvatore's writing style there was not too much fluff.

Re Discovering My Youth

Possibly not everyone might be aware of this but these books were set in a Campaign World called the Forgotten Realms, a world created by Ed Greenwood back in the mid eighties for the game Dungeons & Dragons, then owned by TSR.

The D&D franchise was then bought by The Wizards of the Coast and 28 years on since this first book was written by R A Salvatore, yes contrary to what people have said the Crystal Shard Trilogy were the first books published, the D&D 5th edition game has eventually come full circle back to the Realms, one of the most loved settings for the game and it was because of this I decided to listen to this series again to reacquaint myself with the world and its magical appeal.

The book still stands up after all these years, I thoroughly enjoyed it and as my memory is pretty shocking it was as if I was reading them again for the first time.

Looking forward to the rest in the series and then I will move on to The Dark Elf Trilogy, a prequel to the Crystal Shard, there are also two other series called The Legacy of the Drow and Paths of Darkness.

With regards to the Narrators performance my only criticism is his intonation became too monotonous, he finishes every sentence with the same intonation that after a while started to drive me crazy, sorry but I have been spoiled with listening to Stephen Fry performing the Harry Potter books, and thats the difference, there are narrators who just read the books and there are those who actually perform them, unfortunately Victor Bevine isn't the latter.

Good story, at times poorly narrated

Victor Bevine does a good job with the narration until it comes time to give the characters their voices. He makes most of the burly characters sound like dopey luggards.
