The epic tale of everyone's favorite dark elf, Drizzt Do'Urden, reaches new heights!
Drizzt Do'Urden struggles with his own inner voices, voices that call him back to the pitiless depths of the Underdark. But louder still are the voices of his newfound friends, and the dream that drives Bruenor Battlehammer on to reclaim Mithral Hall. Time and again they're told to turn back, that some dreams can never be fulfilled, but on they fight -- together.
Quest for Mithral Hall
By Sunny Naasiri
- December 31, 2008
Once the Companions of the Hall have made an allegiance to protect each other at all costs, they set off to find Mithral Hall (Bruenor's ancestral home). Meanwhile, a deadly killer is on the pursuit in bringing an end to the companions' destruction. In my opinion, I liked it a little less than The Crystal Shard but it was suspenseful to a point where I read it in less than 4 days. However, the most successful twist that Salvatore made was focusing the attention on Cattie-Brie. She had taught me to always be calm and good under pressure whenever facing a crisis situation.
Regarding the plot, it was not scattered and had a suspenseful chapters at every turn. I got hooked on and always pondered what were going to be the villains' next moves? Streams of Silver is a heroic quest novel that is successful like The Crystal Shard except this one the companions are traveling. Since there is no central location, it gets challenging to keep the plot focused but Salvatore continues to... read more
The quest for Mithril Hall
By Luke Waygood
- April 10, 2008
Streams of Silver picks up pretty much where the last book, The Crystal Shard, left off. Bruenor (a dwarven leader, by blood the king of the Battlehammer clan), Drizzt (a self-exiled drow elf) and Wulfgar (a young barbarian) set out on a quest to find Mithril Hall, ancestral home of Bruenor and his clan. Shortly after they leave, they are also joined by Regis (a halfling) - although they suspect that he is running from something, rather than running to join them on their quest.
Running he certainly is, from Artemis Entreri, a deadly human assassin, who is tracking Regis to return a stolen gem to the leader of a southern Thieves Guild. Catti-brie, Bruenor's adopted human daughter, becomes Artemis' hostage. To complicate matters further, an evil mage seeks Drizzt to locate the crystal shard, a powerful artifact which was the subject of the last book. Deciding that cooperating would be mutually beneficial, the mage dispatches his apprentice, a golem (think of a... read more
Enjoyable fantasy read, but overpowered heroes
By Kyle L. Rhynerson "Fortitudine Vincimus"
- January 21, 2013
"Streams of Silver" is the second book in the "Icewind Dale" Trilogy, and it continues the tale of our five heroes Drizzt, Bruenor, Wulfgar, Cattie-Brie, and Regis as they attempt to find the famed Mithral Hall that Bruenor and the surviving Battlehammer clan members lost some 200 years earlier.
More so than any of the previous four books I've read in the "Forgotten Realms" series, it felt like the heroes were too unbelievably powerful at times, yet completely inept at others. Without including specific spoilers, I'll say the heroes survived an incredibly long chase sequence, but nobody was seriously wounded or dead. Then you have Bruenor who is apparently suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and cannot remember where his home is located or the events that led to its demise. You also have Cattie-Brie who is suddenly terrified by a new villain even though she's Bruenor's adopted daughter and faced numerous battles.
The other thing that bugs me a... read more
