Readers of the Drizzt saga may be jarred by The Crystal Shard after reading Sojourn. The 4th book in the series was actually written before the first three, and Salvatore had yet to fully develop in the writer he would eventually become. Not only that, the novel was practically written at breakneck speed. If you're interested in the Drizzt books, definitely start with Homeland. If you love the first three entries, go ahead and give this one a try.

Drizzt Do'Urden remains the epic centerpoint of this story, but in this tome he is joined by several new cast additions, all of whom make their presences known with feeling. The characters are strong and interesting, their interactions made me smile at every turn, and the book culminates in an epic final battle with the machinations of the crystal shard. All is backed up by the immaculate worldbuilding Salvatore and Ed Greenwood have done over the years, grounding the story in a living, breathing world that draws you in like the tide. If you like D&D, read this book. You'll understand so many of the jokes afterwards.

Another Forgotten Realms adventure by R.A.Salvatore. Set in the northernmost regions of the world, this novel explores the inability of humanity to bond together to face a monumental threat. Through it all, Salvatore's iconic character, Drizzt Do'Urden, faces racism and challenges, transcending above them all to save his friends. A great read!
