About the Book

Isolated in the barren stretches of Icewind Dale the villages of Ten-Towns come under attack by a tribe of barbarians. In the midst of battle a young barbarian named Wulfgar ends up owing five years of his life to a grizzled dwarf. With the help of Drizzt , a renegade dark elf, the dwarf strives to mold the barbarian into a warrior with both brawn and brains.

Meanwhile, there is no peace for the people of Ten-Towns. The fractioned tribes of barbarians continue to pose a threat, and Wulfgar may be the only person who can avert a deadly battle. But an even more dire menace appears when a weak-willed apprentice mage stumbles upon a magical crystal shard. The evil shard directs the hapless mage onto a course of destruction that all of Icewind Dale may be powerless to stop.

Excerpts

When the wizards' caravan from the Hosttower of the Arcane saw the snow-capped peak of Kelvin's Cairn rising from the flat horizon, they were more than a little relieved.
