I love the Icewind Dale trilogy. Although not as good as the Dark Elf trilogy, it is a great adventure.

This is a great story and probably one of my favorites. I love that the Harpells are introduced into the series, as they are a constant source of delight. I also really like that this book does not have any of the "reflections" by Drizzt in it, as his musings tend to annoy me because sometimes it feels like he's looking for a pity party. It's also great because one of the best villains in the series, Artemis Entreri, appears quite often and gets a major role woven into the story.

On the downside though, I was a little irritated by a couple of events that felt like they were taken out of Lord of the Rings. I'm also not a big fan of Regis and Wulfgar because they both have qualities that make them unlikeable as heroes (one's manipulative and the other too cocky), but they still manage to work well in the story so I can overlook them.

"Yer eyes'll shine when ye see the rivers runnin silver in Mithril Hall!"

Bruenor the dwarf, Wulfgar the barbarian, Regis the halfling, and Drizzt the dark elf fight monsters and magic on thier way to Mithril Hall, centuries-old birthplace of Bruenor andhis dwarven ancestors.

Faced with racism, Drizzt contemplates returning to the lightless underworld city and murderous lifestyle he abandoned. Wulfgar genis to overcome his tribe's aversion for magic. And Regis runs from a deadly assassin, who, allied with evil wizards, is bent on the companions destruction. All of Bruenor's dreams, and the survival of his party, hinge upon the actions of one brave young woman.

Streams of Silver is R.A. Salvatore's second book in the "Icewind Dale Trilogy", based on the "Forgotten Realms" fantasy setting.
