The fantastic sequel to The Crystal Shard is this book, Streams of Silver. Not only is this an engrossing read but it opens a few more paths for the main characters: Drizzt Do'Urden, Wulfgar, Regis, and Bruenor. The second book is probably the most important book because it brings two things into the story: the relentless and sadistic Artemis Entreri, an assassin out to capture and murder Regis the halfling, and the problems Drizzt faces with the predjudices associated with his dark heritage. These two don't seem that they would go together but as you delve farther into the book you see that they in short do.
Not only has Salvatore out done himslef but he as added a couple new variables into this equation, variables which reoccur quite often in his other book series.
Streams of Silver is sure to be a classic and doesn't dissapoint in anyway. A riveting story which can only be described as fantastic is ever present in all of Mr. Salvatore's books but this one takes high honor.
It could be said that Streams of Silver is the threshold to a number of more thrilling and powerful tales. It is the true starting point of Mr. Salvatore's work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading - but not the greatest June 29 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Streams of Silver" was much better than the first book (now that the randow crystal shard is out of the way). I found this book more exciting and fulfilling. I think this is the case because the characters seem to be a true "party" now - they are truely companions. Wulfgar is grown and trained in the ways of fighting and has learned from the best. He also shows his ability in the many battles they fight - which are awesome as always. I don't think I have ever been dissappointed by a fight written by Salvatore.
And a fight that you will most certainly not be dissappointed in was the duel between Drizzt and the assasin Entrerei. Absolutely my favorite scene in the book. You can see the action in your imagination and feel the desires and emotions of the characters. Of all the Drizzt books I have read, this still remains one of my favorite fights, if not my favorite. This duel and the "relationship" formed by these two cast members is why I gave this book four stars instead of three.
The problems I have with this book, as with the whole Icewind Dale trilogy is the seemingly "random" tasks the companions strive to complete. Each book is totally different than the previous that it's hard to see these as cohesive books in a trilogy and not just three books with the same characters. It just leaves me unsettled when the companions seem to just get up and go look for the lost Mithiral Hall.
But, regardless of how or why they started the task, the journey that follows is a good, entertaining, and action-packed journey that is worth every minute of your time. And, if at the very least, this book is necessary for the rest of the Drizzt books for full understanding of the sequence. It is a good book, just a little unsettling at times (up until the Drizzt and Enterei duel - afterwhich, nothing else seems to matter).

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC!!! June 5 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Definitely a great fantasy epic and one of my personal favorites, The Icewind Dale Trilogy- The Crystal Shard, Streams of Silver, and The Halfling's Gem, brings to life the story of a good hearted dark elf ranger named Drizzt Do'Urden and his adventures in the northwestern reaches of the World of Faerun. The books are so incredibly well written that the reader feels that they have been transported to another universe and are actually present among the characters, seeing what they see, feeling what they feel, sensing what they sense. RA Salvatore has truly outdone himself and has presented us with a masterpiece of literature the likes of which we have seen only in JRR Tolkien's work and in authors Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman's Dragonlance Chronicles and Legends trilogies. Duty, honor, bravery, magic, dragons and heroes are all about. An amazing trilogy indeed and a "must read" along with RA Salvatore's Dark Elf Trilogy! . In conclusion, it's what Fantasy reading SHOULD be. A GREAT book indeed if you love Fantasy and especially if you love the Forgotten Realms! DON'T MISS IT!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Slow at the beggining, but all in good time. Jan. 19 2004
By mdizzog
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I honestly get a little tired of the way the heroes talk to each other. The way Bruenor gruffs at everyone or how everyone is always intrigued by their companions. Once this book gets near the end, it picks up. You really have to read the whole series though to truly appreciate the rest.
The fights are excellent near the end. Entreri seems like a great villian and I was always eager to see how he will combat the heroes. He is much better than that stupid apprentice power-monger(u know who im talking about) and he really does have a good fight or two.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another thriller from Salvatore! Sept. 12 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book may even be better than the first one, and that's saying a lot. What really put it a notch ahead was the wonderful array of foes that the heroes had to deal with. Artemis Entreri has to be one of the coolest evil dudes I've come across, and Bok the golem (who could pound through castle walls with his bare fists) put vivid images in my head. Don't forget about Dendybar the Mottled, the Trollmoors, the Druegar, the Shadow Hounds, and especially Shimmergloom, a shadow dragon.
This book got Regis and Cattie-Brie more involved too, and I must say that Cattie-Brie kicked some serious tale! The best part of the book has to be the last fight against Shimmergloom. Bruenor is freaking nuts, but he sure put a hurting on the beast. While the book ends in a pretty desparate situation, with Bruenor assumed to be dead, and Artemis making off with Regis and Drizzit's shadow cat, a great adventure is promised for the next one. I look forward to it greatly.
