My first Drizzt Novel

After listening to the audio book for a short time I was not worried about having not read other novels in the Drizzt series before. The narration was a welcoming sound and I enjoyed being led into the adventure of Drizzt and his adventuring companions with fluid verse.

Dungeons and Dragons is a game which you might have heard of, and a huge part of the game is story-telling. This lends itself well to a rich universe for the creators of D&D to make some extremely entertaining characters and novels based on those characters and adventures.

If you like high fantasy, then the Dungeons & Dragons multi-universe is going to be your cup of tea. Characters evolve, and so do the lands they live. Drizzt Do'Urdens' adventures are a great place to start.

He is a contemporary character with several recent novels being released. You can expect many great adventures, for a lawfully aligned Drow, he sure lives a long time, and that's a lot of room for stories.

R.A Salvatore is a good writer, he fleshes out description and pushes the tale along, so you don't feel you are being told what just happened.

I play quite a lot of Dungeons & Dragons, and I'm also a local Dungeon Master for official events on the Isle of Wight. I love rolling dice, and now thanks to audible can listen to novels while at my regular job.

Narration

Didn't recognise some of the characters due to changed pronunciation. Very distracting. Spoilt the book.
