Product Description

From Amazon

Everybody's favorite introspective dark elf butt-kicker is back. And if you're one of the many fans of R.A. Salvatore's phenomenally popular twin-scimitar-swinger, you won't be disappointed. The Silent Blade is old-school Drizzt, an adventure that brings together the original gang: the lovely Cattie-brie, the plump and mischievous Regis, the gruff dwarven father-figure Bruenor, and the even more gruff barbarian hammer-hurler Wulfgar. Better yet, The Silent Blade brings back Drizzt's best worst nemesis, master assassin Artemis Entreri. Throw in the evil artifact Crenshinibon (a.k.a. the Crystal Shard, the namesake of the first Drizzt Do'Urden book), and you know you're in for a good time.

The plot follows three intertwined threads: Drizzt and Co.'s road trip to destroy Crenshinibon, Wulfgar's struggle to overcome the scars of his imprisonment at the claws of the demon Errtu, and Artemis Entreri's long-awaited return to the seamy streets of Calimport. The action is as lively as ever, with giants and goblins and thieves all getting their deserved lumps at the hands of our heroes, and of course Drizzt continues his meditations on life with a capital L. The book's highlight, though, comes when Do'Urden and Entreri cross paths once again, this time with surprising results. And the promise of that matchup should keep you flipping the pages quickly. --Paul Hughes

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, a departure for RAS April 29 2004
By dnoyeB
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The title is fitting. Shows some of the insides of Artemis Entreri, and has Jarlaxle up to his usual business. Its a quality read with less plot and more character development. Some odd things happen in this book between characters. This book gets my recomendation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Show down! March 16 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Our favorite Dark Elf meets his match! Entreri travels the world to find Drizzt Do'Urden and settle the score, knowing that he had a great chance of beating him. Drizzt and his friends begin to travel the world, trying to find a way to destroy the Crystal Shard that came into their possession. This book stands out most because of its one-on-one fight scenes and quick moving characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard Emotions and cool battles Feb. 28 2004
By Aragorn
Format:Mass Market Paperback
One of the best things about this book is that we see the inner torments suffered by Wulfgar and Artemis Entreri. We see how entreri copes with life on Calimport's streets and how Wulfgar faces the horrid memories of imprisonment at the hands of Errtu. Without spoiling much, the final battle between Drizzt and Entreri is very intense and somewhat surprising. Bruenor is also great, particularly when he keeps getting his axe stuck in various goblins. mind you though, there are some gorey details so be forwarned.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a really good book. Oct. 10 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After reading, "Passage to Dawn," I was a little tried of the Drizzt series and decided to read a different set of books. The different set didn't do it for me, so I went back to Drizzt and I was blown away by the Silent blade. The writing is ten times better then the "Legacy Series," the characters have much more depth and emotional ties (Artemis, Wolfgar), and I could tell (Don't ask me how) Mr. Salvatore was enjoying himself more when he was writing this series rather than the "Legacy series."
If you don't like the legacy series or not find it as enjoyable as the previous books, just read them because the "Paths of Darkness" series will make more sense and the stories will be ten times better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another enjoyable outing from Salvatore... Aug. 7 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Coming on the heels of Salvatore's excellent "Legacy of the Drow" Quartet, "The Silent Blade" continues the adventures of Drizzt Do'Urden and company, once again off across the lands of Faerun on a quest to destroy the Crystal Shard, Cranshinibon.
Salvatore's writing continues to improve- The Silent Blade introduces new depth to quite a few of Salvatore's characters, including the disillusioned assassin Artemis Entreri, the enigmatic mercenary Jarlaxle, and, now returned from his captivity in the Abyss, the barbarian warrior Wulfgar. The book also splits it's time evenly between Entreri and Drizz't, and the focus on Entreri's dealings in Calimport put a nice twist on the novel, only surpassed by the showdown at the end of the book.
If you've enjoyed the dark tone of "Legacy of the Drow" and want to continue your adventures with Drizzt, pick this book up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Return to the power of the Crystal Shard Feb. 21 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Silent Blade is not only the firt book of the series "The Paths of Darkness" by R.A. Salvatore, but it is also the return to a battle that was thought over. The battle of and for the evil Crystal Shard.
In this first novel of the series, we encounter all of our old friends and enemies. This book really is an intro for the rest of the novels in this series which pins 3 characters, drizzt, wulfgar, and Entriri. The book is broken up, watching each character and showing what brings them to soon be their own novel.
Wulfgar is struggling with his sanity after being imprisoned in the abyss for six long years.
Drizzt is on a search to destroy the evil Crystal Shard.
And Atermis Entriri the deadly assassin and Drizzts fighting equel returns to his home city in search of himself and what he wants to do with the rest of his life.
All and all this story makes for another classic tale for Drizzt and his companions. A must read for Drizzt fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Dec 10 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read all of Salvatore's books about the drow Drizzt Do'urden, and I have loved them all. The Silent Blade is another great book by Salvatore. It has it all, action, intrigue, and of course, lots and lots of fighting.
