Forgotten Realms: The Legend of Drizzt Vol. 1 – Homeland
Masterful storytelling and perfect world-building. Sep 03, Mike Mueller rated it it was ok. Medieval books are not exactly a frequent occurrence in comics. I’d love to see a book or two focused solely on Vierna. Although there are moments when he takes himself too seriously.
You might argue that Drizzt’s weaponmaster, Zaknafein, successfully maneuvers his way around Drow culture while keeping his own moral code intact, but this is easily refuted by examining Zak and Letend familial relationship itself don’t want to spoil, just keep in mind that their relationship is critical to the story. The reqlms focuses, of course, on Drizzt, the young dark lgeend born at the height of a battle in which realmx “house” is in the process of destroying another “house”.
I think the thing that I enjoyed the most was the world building. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Feb 24, Traci rated it it was amazing Shelves: I have heard the name of Drizzt mentioned many times in conversations regarding awesome characters, but somehow managed to avoid reading this book until now.
There are the makings of a terrific story here, of a boy who escapes the trappings of a society bent on indoctrination and lawlessness to become a beacon of hope for a world wholly different than himself.
In Homeland we read about the drow and their homeworld.

I was a little slower actually getting interested in the story line. If anything, there is a certain thrill about reading a fantasy-based book and this first entry into the Legend of Drizzt is exciting in that regard.
Drizzt refused outright and, using one of Zaknafein’s weapons – an exploding ball of light – escaped into the Underdark. This book had been on my to-read list for almost two decades before I lgend decided to give it a chance. As a child, Drizzt displayed amazing reflexes and coordination.
The Dark Elf Trilogy 3 books. If I were a smarter man with more time, I’d delve into each of these, but suffice it to say that, for all its hacking, slaying, nobility, and heroics, Forfotten is a sociologists dream-come-true. It’s also a binary world: Lashing out the only way he can. She told him, cruelly and with much delight, that Zaknafein had been sacrificed to Lolth in order to regain the Spider Queen’s favor.
Sons and daughters in the family advance the same way.

Retrieved September 6, And now I’ll be the one doing the gushing because – and I just have to say it – this book is amazing! In the drow society, the women are the total rulers; they dictate the entire society, and treat men as if they are beneath them.
This is particularly evident in some side shots amongst many others. Salvatore is one thr the best fantasies ever written and only grows finer with age.
They knew that the only way to rectify the situation was to offer Drizzt up as a sacrifice to Lolth. This was Malice’s intention all along. Where does he get these morals?
And this, I think, is where Salvatore is going to or has already gotten himself into trouble with modern readers. This is exactly what I got in the end. He’ll have to find a way to not only survive whatever his enemies, friends and even family throw at him, but also to hide his true nature and preserve his sanity while seeking a place to belong to.
They are not nice by any stretch of imagination and make Darth Vader look like a kindergarten bully wannabe. The group these books follow have many later books, which some people love, and I liked, but after about the 12th book I sort of got irritated by Drizzt and crew.
Homeland is a satisfying book.
