Homeland by R.A. Salvatore Book Summary

Discover the origin story of one of the greatest heroes of the Forgotten Realms—Drizzt Do’Urden—in this thrilling first installment in the classic Dungeons & Dragons series, the Dark Elf Trilogy

Drow ranger Drizzt Do’Urden, first introduced in The Icewind Dale Trilogy, quickly became one of the fantasy genre’s standout characters. With Homeland, Salvatore pulls back the curtain to reveal the startling tale of how this hero came to be—how this one lone drow walked out of the shadowy depths of the Underdark; how he left behind an evil society and a family that wanted him dead.
As the third son of Mother Malice and weaponmaster Zaknafein, Drizzt Do’Urden is meant to be sacrificed to Lolth, the evil Spider Queen, per drow tradition. But with the unexpected death of his older brother, young Drizzt is spared—and, as a result, further ostracized by his family. As Drizzt grows older, developing his swordsmanship skills and studying at the Academy, he begins to realize that his idea of good and evil does not match up with those of his fellow drow. Can Drizzt stay true to himself in a such an unforgiving, unprincipled world? 
Homeland is the first book in the Dark Elf Trilogy and the Legend of Drizzt series.

Homeland (R.A. Salvatore) Book Reviews

Awesome!R.A. Salvatore has created an amazing character in this series. The best part is the growth of the character and his companions. Highly recommended!.Score: 5/5

Amazing intro into DnD for meMy best friend showed me these books when I was younger, around 14 or so, and Im still reading them now at 27. I started off with this book and became OBSESSED with reading the rest. I truly enjoy Salvatores writing style and the addition of content he brings into the Forgotten Realms. I enjoy Sci-Fi both futuristic, DnD style, alternate universe, you name it. This mans writing introduced me into a great world of sci-fi that Im greatful for discovering. Keep on, keepin on, Bob..Score: 5/5

The start for me…This was the start for me. Great to revisit this book since it first came out…my goal is to reread/read all the “Drizzt books” and then tackle the new Drow books…aevendrow just to mention one of the “new” drow. It looks good so far though. Drizzt and company have never disappointed me. Come to think of it…never has this writer. It’s kinda funny how that works. Such a unique character. A heroic character with stories to tell..Score: 5/5

Very EnjoyableThis was my introduction to the forgotten realms universe, and I must say it was very enjoyable. While the book was interesting it was also predictable at times and that took away from the great experience I had. The world building of the drow society was superb and I felt as if I was along side Drizzt witnessing the atrocities of his people along side him. I gave it a 4 out of 5 because again it was quite predictable at times. I have high hopes for the second volume, and am very eager to see Drizzt's journey to the surface, and what the Mind Flayers on cover might have in store for the hero..Score: 4/5

Great bookHonestly a really great book with so many details and a great story. Any fan of fantasy or DnD would enjoy..Score: 5/5

For D&D lovers!This book is a must read for any D&D lover! It has wizards, fighters, clerics and the most beloved Drizzt Do'Urden featuring as a dual wielder known to us as the Ranger class. The book is a great one for those looking for inspiration to create their first character or those looking to enrich an already made one. The book goes by quickly and will most likely be read in a day or two; its "that" good!.Score: 5/5

WonderfulSecond time reading this book and want to read all of this great authors books. If you want a series of books that will take you a while to catch up on and enjoy immensely this is thee one you want to read..Score: 5/5

Masterful and InstinctiveBeing an aspiring novelist myself, I would be inclined to place R.A. Salvatore in the fantasy hall of fame if there were such a thing, with names such as Tolkien and CS Lewis. Many an author has written tell tail stories of heroic exploits enticing the endless world of our imaginations but few have evoked such emotion as to make the characters come alive like Salvatore. He has mastered casting out just enough line to keep you coming back until finally your hooked and you find yourself wanting to befriend the characters and be part of the adventures yourself..Score: 5/5

Riveting page turnerI haven’t read a fantasy book for 20 years now I’m hooked! The fast pace and overarching plot of good conquers evil was so satisfying to read. Now I have to read the next book in the series to see the lead character continue his quest for truth with a new companion. So exciting!.Score: 5/5

Pure genius!I’ve heard stories of Drizzit growing up but not that I finally got the chance to read it. I couldn’t put it down. Read it in about 2 hours. Can’t wait to start book two!.Score: 5/5

Amazing!If you enjoy Fantasy novels then you love this book! I read this book for the first time in my early twenties. Then again in my early thirties. Now in my forties, I have read it yet again! It is remarkable how in each read through I have made connections with different characters of this story. This is truly a work of art, a masterpiece! Illidan Stormrage, of World of Warcraft fame, is one of my favorite fantasy characters. Second only to Drizzt Do’Urden. I have read almost all of Salvatore’s books on Drizzt. I feel the undeniable urge to read them all again and just as before, it all started with Homeland..Score: 5/5
