'Streams of Silver' Book Report
The novel 'Streams of Silver' by R.A. Salvatore is an epic fantasy adventure set in the realm of Faerun, Salvatore's fictional world filled with goblins, elves, dwarves and other mysterious and terrible creatures. It tells the story of a group of friends and adventurers who are traveling to aid a friend in realizing his life's dream and unknowingly to protect one of their friends from a great evil. The story is packed full of battle, adventure, deceit, and friendship.
The story's main characters include the returned Drizzt Do'Urden, the noble dark elf, Bruenor Battlehammer, dwarven king with a temper as short as his height, Wulfgar, the young barbarian who wishes to expand his narrow view of the world, Cattie Brie, adopted human daughter of Bruenor, and Regis, a halfling who loves comfort more than any other being to have lived. There are also other characters, such as Artemis Entreri, a feared and heartless assassin who lives only by his blade, and Dendybar the Mottled, an opportunistic and ambitious old wizard who isn't afraid to toss aside loyalties for his own gain.
The story begins by taking off from where the previous novel, The Crystal Shard, left off, where Bruenor Battlehammer leads his friends Regis, Drizzt, and Wulfgar on a quest to find his long lost underground kingdom and reclaim the throne and treasures within. The group finds themselves in mostly high spirits in the beginning of the journey; however, foreshadowing shows that the group is not alone, and is most certainly not protected from evil and watchful eyes. The group is being followed by the notorious Artemis Entreri, who seeks to capture Regis and return him to his guild master in a land far south. They are also being monitored by a powerful wizard named Dendybar the Mottled, who seeks an ancient and evil artifact that was last possessed by Drizzt Do'Urden.... [continues]
