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.

Slow going at times but not bad

I was eager to start this series of books and perhaps was expecting a little too much from the first book. This first book is heavily laden with the protagonists back story from birth to self discovery.

Although there is plenty of interesting parts I found it hard to ease through the story until it got to pivotal moments.

Being a d&d fan and player I was familiar with the character and setting but felt it was heavily laden with details I wasn't interested in.

On the whole a good opening book to an intriguing protagonist arc and I look towards the next in the series "exile"
