This evening I am posting for you about The Icewind Dale Trilogy by R.A. Salvatore. Normally, I would not be posting a trilogy as a joint review, but since I started this particular trilogy long before I decided to start a blog, I do not want to mistake any events in one book as happening in another, etc. Also, I just finished the final in the trilogy, so I want my reflections to be fresh. The trilogy consists of (in this order) The Crystal Shard, Streams of Silver, and The Halfling's Gem.
Yes, The Icewind Dale Trilogy is from the fantasy genre, and yes it is Dungeons & Dragons (Forgotten Realms is only one world of multiple in the D&D 'universe'). If those facts would be the only things keeping youfrom reading the books, I would definitely urge you to reconsider. First of all, if you would just be too embarrassed to be seen reading a Dungeons & Dragons book, you have nothing to worry about, since nowhere on the cover of any copy I have seen (and most definitely not those which are more recently published) do they say "Dungeons & Dragons". Secondly, the books are amazing!
