The Crystal Shard

by Salvatore, R. A.
Good time fantasy

The Crystal Shard is an entertaining fantasy story set in the Dungeons & Dragons world of Forgotten Realms. I feel it is a good book/series for teens on up. It tells the tale of the coming together of the heroes of Drizzt the dark elf, Bruenor the dwarf king, Wulfgar the barbarian, Catti-Brie the human daughter of Bruenor and Regis the halfling. It takes place in the northern area of Forgotten Realms, named Icewindale. Part of the story is of Wulfgar growing and learning to accept other races by being raised by Bruenor after he became an orphan. It is also about Drizzt trying to become accepted into a world that he is hated because of his race. I enjoyed the inner struggle of the characters as well as all of the action and battles they go through to help protect the towns and dwarven kingdom in Icewindale. It is the first book of a trilogy that has good adventure stories throughout them. I highly recommend reading all of the books about Drizzt, but this is the one to start off with. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
