Praise for the Neverwinter Saga:
“Emotional, respectful of its characters, intelligently written and structured, and finally summons a sense of nostalgic sorrow throughout”–Fantasy Book Review on Gauntlgrym, Neverwinter Saga Book I
“Full of excitement. Salvatore has mastered the art of showing a beautiful fight scene, and he is at the top of his game in this one. We meet many characters with many different fighting styles, and Salvatore does a great job of distinguishing between them. He manages to take these scenes from so much more than just a fight scene, to an integral part of the story.”—The SFF Hub on Gauntlgrym, Neverwinter Saga Book I
 
“A quick read with some very satisfying fight scenes. It’s also deeply layered with emotional atmosphere” —California Literary Review on Gauntlgrym, Neverwinter Saga Book I
 
Overview:
In the conclusion to the #4 New York Times best-selling Neverwinter Saga, Drizzt draws his swords once more to aid his friends—assisting the beautiful elf Dahlia as she enacts revenge and helping an old foe break the bonds that have held him hostage for more than a hundred years.

Meet the Author

R.A. Salvatore
R.A. Salvatore
R. A. Salvatore was born in Massachusetts in 1959. His first published novel was The Crystal Shard. He has since published more than a dozen novels, including the New York Times bestsellers The Halfling's Gem, Sojourn, The Legacy, and Starless Night. He makes his home in Massachusetts with his wife, Diane, and their three children.

Good To Know

Well, I just turned 50, but I'm still a clean-up hitter on the softball field. A couple of years ago, I found myself in horrible shape and feeling lousy all the time, and so, with the help of my wonderful and beautiful wife of 25 years, I started taking my health seriously again. Now I feel better than I did when I was 40. Fit Camp three times a week and yoga and softball and all the rest.

The other thing that I've come to learn about myself is that R. A. Salvatore and Bobby Salvatore are two different people (and I much prefer Bobby, thank you very much). It's not that I lie to readers at book signings, or anything like that, it's just that the things that are important to me are the little things in life: my family, my home. Writing is what I do, but it's not who I am. I remember one time about 20 years ago, I went back to where I had worked to see my brother, who still worked there. Gary was a few years older, and was, of course, my hero. An associate found us in the parking lot and nudged my brother, asking him what it felt like to have a younger brother who was so much more successful than he.

Gary, of course, took it all in stride, turning what might have been an awkward moment into a joke. Gary died a few years later and I'll never forget the lines of mourners -- grown men crying like babies. He was such a big part of the community, as a friend and a coach to so many kids over the years.

That brought me back to the parking lot and the awkward moment, and the truth of it all: I was not and have never been more successful than my brother, and nothing I can do as a writer will get me there. Only the things I do as a human being, a father, a neighbor, a friend, can bring me into his league.

    Another fantastic story from R.A. Salvatore!

    As an avid follower of Drizzt from his first story this latest one does not disappoint. Just when you think it can't go on any more, the characters continue to grow and while old friendships fade away new ones develop and the growth of the character just continues.

    I can't wait for the next novel - the only problem with any of these books is that they are far too short!

    I fell on this story by chance after starting the month with some good and fascinating reads. After reading Ngoko's Folly, which I found intriguing, I decided my next book would be on an unusual genre. Charon's Claw caught my attention, the pitch indicated it would be a gripping story, and so I fell for it. I was not disappointed. It is brilliantly written, the plot is brought to life through vivid descriptions, well-observed dialogue and a rolling narrative. I enjoyed it all the way to the last page.

    R A Has done it again. For all who love Drizzt and have looked deeper to the stories and his struggles will not be disappointed. Those who have looked into his life and ever thought "what devotion Drizzt has." Will not be let down either. Must read.

    Skip the book and series

    Disappointing from the 1st page to the end of the series. Poor character development, too many side plots. Is the author getting paid for pages written, or for actually writting a good story? Wish i never read this series, and ended with good memories of his better work. See ya RA Salvatore

    Used to be my favourite author

    Its a shame.. Seems to me that the the action and excitement in the older books, has been replaced with a need to endure convoluted plots... Several plots going on the entire time.
    I find my mind wandering about other things as i read.
    God knows, maybe its me.. But i don't seem to have this issue with other great authors...
    Long, long winded descriptions.. So many characters that i find that i don't really desire to even bother to keep up with them..

    it seems to me that in the quest to improve as a writer, that being long winded is a skill much appreciated by more intelligent readers than I... drizzt used to be my favorite character but even he has become overly long winded.. Character Development i reckon.

    Crying shame, i will miss him greatly..

    Gud luck Mr Salvatore

    Slave Quarters

    A cage sat in a corner. The room had a rickety table, with a cracked mirrior above it. A washbowl, sponge, water pitcher, and soap stood on it. A creaky cold bed sat in a corner.

    Good read

    While I feel that Salvatore's writing has been lacking something recently, this book read closer to what I expect from his works. The storyline seemed a bit less predictable. Though I had hoped by the ending Drizzt would be closer, not seemingly farther, from a final break from clinging to his past and accepting the fact that he's from a long-lived race; I look forward to the next installment.

    Great

    I had really almost given up on this beloved series, but RA just showed me he still has it. More intrigue and mystery to keep me reading.

    Can't wait for More!

    This was a great conclusion to the Neverwinter Saga, but of course it ended with more questions and even more concerns with lost friends and new founded ones. I can't wait for the next Saga to start; whatever it is, but I know that it will be awesome and that I won't be able to get enough of that book either haha
