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.

    "Problem with Content"
    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...

    Story
    "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!

    "Fighting scenes were a bit too long"

    Sometimes I wish there were more story and less battles. They're so long I actually tend to get board

    "A Great story keeps Getting Better!"

    I have been listening to these books for weeks now, and every time I finish one I have to start another right away! Also the narrator is so awesome, way way better then the horrible copies on youtube, most of them sound like there read by 3rd grader's!

    "Same Old Theme"
    What did you love best about The Silent Blade?

    I love the Drizzt novels and have recently been following them, and I'm glad I can keep going.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The author seems to bring up the same character battle, the same evil entity in several books now. I love Artemis' storyline, but would have loved him to chill out needing to battle Drizzt several books ago. Also I'm tired of hearing about the Crystal Shard. I'm ready for some new things and this book just felt like one that was done with the same old plot point. Although I will admit I like how it ended and I also love Jarlaxle and his new role.
