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.

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!

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...

Killer Filler.

R.A Salvatore once again brings out the old and retired “Drizzt and Friends” routine but finally gives focus on better developing the side characters. Victor Bevine kills his performance as usual. I know this review is 10 books late, but if you’re like me and still working your way through, don’t be dismayed; it’s still a good book and you should keep going!

Not my favorite

This one skips around in story too much. It follows three groups. So you jump around. I also find Wulfgar's story full and interesting. So his parts are extra hard to follow.

Meh

I generally enjoyed listening to this book. This is a general statement to meet requirements that don't allow for a simple star rating.

Back on track

I was a bit worried from the last book that this series may have hit a peak a few books back. The silent blade showed there is still much left to do.

Awesome

the distinct performance from the narrator flows the story to the bone with chilling Goosebumps frightening experiences adrenaline pumping surges directly through the mind filling one with a sense of the forgotten Realms in its entirety.
