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...

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!

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!

All time favorite series read by competent narrato

What did you love best about The Silent Blade?

Ive always loved he series. It was refreshing to have it read by a good narrator. Vector Bevine does an excellent job of putting you in the story and the moment. It’s a shame the book ended. Onward to the next!!!

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

Can’t really compare this book to another. As a full series though there is no comparison

What about Victor Bevine’s performance did you like?

Each character is provided a unique and non robotic sounding voice. Good stuff

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

Yes

add music

If you could add a bit of background music to add a spark to the exciting moments, it would have been perfect.
