1 . Great Read!
Posted April 23, 2011 by Bear , FloridaThis book is the first in a series it starts off a little slow but by the time you get to the end of the book you want the next book in the series! I have already purchased the second book. Great Read.
2 . Characterization of one of D&D's evil species
Posted January 17, 2010 by alicemoore , midlothianThe novel brings to life Drizzt, a dark elf, as a protagonist. This is formatted as a D&D adventure.
The pluses: there is more realism in a fight encounter. In Dungeons & Dragons a dagger stab can be a minor inconvenience. Not so, in this story. A stab in the back is going to be fatal. There also is good plot continuty.
The Minuses: fight scenes go on page after page. Some may consider this an assett. As to the cause of Drizzt's rebellion, it didn't convince me. Why? There was very little in his life experience that would bring that about. All the classic rebels have some other context from which to compare their own society. A modern day example would be a North Korean being aware of South Korea. Drizzt and his fellow dark elves don't even have that. There were promising character developments of Zak the Weapons Master. That didn't seal the deal.
I have read George RR Martin's A song of Fire and Ice and Moorcock's Elric Series.. RA Salvatore's Drizzt series seems to cater to a younger demographic than those two authors.
