Product Description

Product Description

Drow ranger Drizzt Do’Urden, first introduced in The Icewind Dale Trilogy, quickly became one of the fantasy genre’s standout characters. But Homeland first reveals the startling tale of how this one lone drow walked out of the shadowy depths of the Underdark, leaving behind a society of evil and a family who want him dead. It is here that the story of this amazing dark elf truly began.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best fantasy books you'll read. 22 Aug 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've read fantasy in the past but i was new to the Forgotten Realms books. I had been recommended this by my mates on more than one occasion and finally i broke when seeing the Trilogy for sale in one volume. I wasn't dissapointed. The depth of the characters was amazing and Salvadores description of fight sequences was brilliant. Homeland is the best book of the three but don't let that put you off reading the other two. It would be hard to keep that standard up for 800 pages. The continuing saga of Drizzt is a great read and i'd recommend it to anybody who loves fantasy books.
Can't wait to get stuck into The Icewind Dale Trilogy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Most likely Salvatore's finest 5 Oct 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Homeland" is possibly R.A. Salvatore's finest work written to date, with the possible exception of "The Legacy". A beautiful story set in perhaps one of the most creative settings ever in a fantasy story, this story both tugs at one's heartstrings and pulls at one's imagination. Menzoberranzen is presented in such intricate, almost loving, detail that one wonders if Salvatore has created the world or is merely reporting on it. The morality of the book, so often overdone in many of his later books, is perfectly presented in this story as the main character, Drizzt, must begin to make his own decisions as to what is wrong and right. Salvatore as well, writes of a very intricate relationship between Drizzt's father and his son, a relationship that is much more complex and intricate than many in his later books. The characterization in this book is superior to many of his other books, and the reader can come to believe that the characters are real people in a real world, so vividly are each painted. In general, this book is excellent in every way, a complex and gripping story set in a detailed and wonderous world. Any fan of fantasy, and many people who are not fans, will love this story. I recommend it wholeheartedly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Homeland is the best book ever!!!! 17 May 1996
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I usually don't like TSR books, but Homeland just blew me
away. A society of *EVIL* 'Drow' elves live underground.
One elf breaks the mold and fights for what he feels is
right. Beautifully written with increadible fighting scenes.
Intricate plot and so many twists and turns your head'll
spin.
Book #1 in a 9 book series, it actually was the fourth
book written (Crystal Shard was first, from the Icewind
Trilogy) but it is MUCH better if you read the Dark Elf
Trilogy then Icewind Trilogy and then the following 3 books.
#9th book leaves so much unanswered and I don't know if he's
going to continue. Does anyone know?

4.0 out of 5 stars A good beginning. 11 Nov 2003
By Ian Tapley VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
THE STORY:
Amid the treachery and cruelty of the world of the dark elves, an unusual child matures into a warrior of unparalleled skill and unwelcome compassion.
WHAT'S GOOD:
This story shows exactly what events forged Drizzt Do'Urden, one of the best fantasy heroes ever; his childhood amid his murderous family, his revelations about the evil of Drow society and his bond with Zaknafein, his father and a similarly compassionate warrior. The story is well written and has intrigue, tension, action and emotion in perfectly balanced parts.
WHAT'S BAD:
This book lacks the epic scope of Salvatore's other work and at times is a little slow, but these are minor points and easily overlooked.
The perfect introduction to both Drizzt and the Forgotten Realms series as a whole.

I have been reading fantasy for over 20 years. Never has anything in the genre come so close to the genius of Tolkien. Salvatores Dark Elf trilogy is truly magnificent, and stands out from all the Tolkien pretenders we see so often. Character development, a rich utterly original setting, masterful storytelling, this book has it all. Salvatore should escape the shackles of TSR Inc. and write something of his own creation - I'm sure it would be a classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's great! 10 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I would recommend this to everyone. As long as they like fantasy. It is probably the best of the Dark Elf Trilogy. It is a good way to get into the Forgotten realms books.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book....farewell Zak! 15 Jan 2000
By Marco Busani VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Salvatore takes the reader on a spellbinding trip deep into the heart of Drow society.Enter the infant Drizzt into a world dripping with treachery.Salvatore charts the progress of Drizzt as he develops into an adult,his innocence smashed along the way.A prominent theme in this novel is the wickedness of the Drow race.There are many interesting examples of this such as:Dinin murdering his brother Nalfein for personal gain,the elimination of House DeVir,Masoj and the acid,the betrayal of Kelnozz etc.The combat sequences are superb and the characters are well fleshed out.I especially enjoyed the father/son bond between Zaknafein and Drizzt and their refusal to embrace the ways of the Spider Queen.Read this soon

By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Wow!!!I never used to read until I read this.Then I read every other Drizzt novel through The Silent Blade.This is the best though.His amazing descriptions of battle and the city of Menzobaranzen kept me hooked and gave me a clear picture of what to base my imagination on.
