If the name doesn't ring a bell, he is a drow-elf/dark-elf who are an evil race of elves that live below-ground in the Underdark. Their families are treacherous, led by the females, (who are far superior to the males), they worship the Spider-queen Lolth.
But Drizzt has his doubts. He is not like other drow. There is something noble about his character that he must keep hidden from his evil mother (Matron Malice) if he wishes to survive. This is book 1 of a trilogy and I look forward to reading the other two. Be warned though, the fonts in this book are tiny! Get your glasses or a magnifying-glass ready.
Quite frankly 'Homeland: The Legend of Drizzt (Book 1)' has to be one of the best fantasy books I have read in a very long time, it was absolutely fantastic and I can honestly say it has renewed my love of fantasy as a lot of the books in this genre have become stale and tired of late.
The 'Homeland' novel has everything you could ever want from a fantasy classic: murder, deceit, action, adventure, plot twists, great characters and a good story. Quite frankly in my opinion this book is brilliant and a ripping good yarn.
I am just absolutely gutted I have not discovered R.A.Salvatore's work in the past as this book to me was a revelation. I just cant understand why R.A.Salvatore hasnt been given better aclaim in the fantasy genre (perhaps its because he writes under the banner: "Forgotten Realms" ?).
If you love 'old school' fantasy novels I promise you, you will love this book. I finished the first novel in this series within 3 mights as I was that hooked, and cant wait to start the second book.
I am not going to go into detail regarding the storyline of 'Homeland' as that has been overdone on previous reviews, plus you can read the sypnosis on the back of the book or under description (on Amazon). Just trust me this novel is a classic and hopefully you will love it as much as I did.
R.A.Salvatore has a new fan.
The book paints a detailed picture of drow society and Drizzt's failure to fit in. There's not much of an overriding quest going on here beyond various political machinations but this book is important in understanding the background of one of the most interesting characters within the forgotten realms setting, if not modern fantasy.
New readers might be better served by jumping straight to 'The Crystal Shard', Drizzt's original introduction but to be honest either book is a great place to start.
