Publisher's Summary

Can the Crystal Shard be destroyed at last? Drizzt is determined to destroy the evil Crystal Shard, and seeks out the help of the scholar-priest Cadderly. But instead, his worst fears are realized, and Crenshinibon falls into the hands of the dark elf mercenary Jarlaxle and his unlikely ally Artemis Entreri.

The Silent Blade is the book that brought Drizzt back to the Realms, and was a New York Times best seller on its initial release - and has been in print every day since. Like the rest of the Legend of Drizzt(R) reissues, The Silent Blade features beautiful new cover art by award-winning illustrator Todd Lockwood.

    What did you like best about The Silent Blade? What did you like least?

    I have read all of R.A. Salvatore books regarding to Drizzt except for the newer releases. The audible versions I have listened to leave out much of the book in critical parts...The only reason I am able to follow the story line is that I have read almost all the paper copies...it shouldn't be noted as unabridged as it isn't. That is why I gave a three star for overall ....


    What did you like best about this story?

    Drizzt is an awesome Dark Elf...


    What about Victor Bevine’s performance did you like?

    He is a great


    Could you see The Silent Blade being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes, however; I would not like it to be condensed. Maybe a series of epic movies would be awesome...

    "Another Awesome Adventure"

    A triple 'A' title all the way! I started this journey from the very first Drizzt book and with each one I listen to everything just keeps getting better and I keep getting more enthralled and sucked into this incredibly wondrous world. Practically every character that gets written in becomes someone you want to keep track of and remember, there's not that many books I've read or listened to that I can say that about.

    If your wanting a lasting read and you can't wait to get your next fix because it's just that good these books are just the ticket!

    Once again Drizzt proves his prowess in combat with an old nemesis. We also get to see how Wulfgar struggles in his return to his family. The stories around Drizzt continue on.

    "The good and the bad"

    If you love Dungeons & Dragons, it can be fun to endure. Salvatores methods can get old though. Bevine is great!

    "excellent"

    I loved this entire series since the very first book I've listened to. I think Victor does a wonderful job near reading the story and put such great emphasis on each character it is obvious that he takes great pride in what he does. r.a.salvatore I believe is a wonderful author and he created a marvelous series that very paul you in to the adventures of the companions of the hall. It very much brings me back to my days when I first read Dragonlance and the adventures of those companions

    What other book might you compare The Silent Blade to and why?

    The Hammer and the Blade: A Tale of Egil and Nix. has the same vibe.


    What about Victor Bevine’s performance did you like?

    Victor always does a great job bringing the story to life.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES! I almost did.


    Any additional comments?

    All these stories are Awesome. If you have gotten this far in the series, you already know what i am talking about. Drizzt is an perfect example how there is always an exception to the rule. If you are checking out this story first. It is great engaging story, But if you start from book one "Homeland" i promise you will not be disappointed.
