Meet the Author

R.A. Salvatore

R.A. Salvatore has spent so many years winding himself into fantasy worlds that he's still trying to figure out how to unwind. He is the author of more than forty novels and more than a dozen New York Times best sellers, including The Two Swords, which debuted at or near the top of many best seller lists.

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.

    read this

    The original book cover was absolutle horrible, featuring an anorexic Drizzt riding a little TOO happily on a horse while waving Twinkle at nothing in particular. However, the actual story is excellent, putting the dark elf into a desert, and subsequently into the slums of a giant city(based on modern day Cairo, I'm sure). The new cover of this novel is a welcome change, and newcomer fans of Drizzt should pick this up! Also, the villians are top rate. (one Pasha Pook by name. weird label, good villian)

    Drizzt Do'Urden Rocks!

    Been a fan of this story for many a years. The dark elf is one of my favorite characters of any series I've ever read. If you haven't read this, you really should consider it.

    Great story. Poor-fair writing

    First of all this is one of the most grabbing stories I've read in some time. I will not stop reading it till its finished but I must say that the writing style is almost childish. There are many mistakes (and im not counting typos which I assume are from putting it into electronic form), such as double word usage where its not correct and even one spot where Salvatore wrote two different versions if pretty much the same sentence. Most of these things should get the editors fired. Overall though its bareble, obviously being that I am still reading it, and I love the pacing and many times cannot put the nook down even when I should go to sleep for work the next day. This is and the ones before and after it are a series i recommend to fans of the genre.

    Can't wait to read the rest of Salvatore's work!

    "... Salvatore has managed to create dynamic characters that I fell completely in love with almost immediately upon meeting them (and even those who I did not fall immediately in love with, I immediately hated. A strong feeling, either way). With the exception of one (Wulfgar the barbarian calls to mind others of his type, such as Conan), they are fairly unique, and each of them only gets more well developed as the story goes on. This is especially true in the case of the dark elf Drizzt, who turns out to be what most would consider the main character. From the start, you are witness to internal reflection on a level that most novels do not allow, but in a way that does not diminish the action of the story. ..."

    great storyline with more action

    My daughter bought me the first three of these books and i wasnt sure i would like them. then i started reading and just cant quit. this one takes all of the heros of the series on an adventure that just gets better and better but like all things it has a happy ending even though the friends lives are in peril all the way through. the epilog hints at even more trouble from Regis the halfling...cant wait to delve into the next one.

    I Also Recommend:

    Not Quite Orginal

    Unfortunately, I read this book just after reading a wonderful fantasy novel, "Timbuktu Chronicles: Aida and the Chosen Soldier." I expected this one to have much of the originality and style of "Timbuktu Chronicles. But Salvatore uses the same creatures and characters that are already well known in the "normal" fantasy world. Also, even though Salvatore uses a simple language that is easy to understand, it lacks the beauty and style used in "Timbuktu Chronicles."

    a genre book

    First of all I LOVE fantasy and *escapist* literature. BUt I didn't like this book. here's why:

    I bought it because the prologue sounded promising, both in writing voice and content. To my dismay, all that je ne sais quoi was gone the moment the print started after chapter one. I know this will offend some people (one of my best friends included) but IMO this is a rather generic roleplayinggame based novel. I could find very little originality and it reminded me from the start of my AD&D session when I was 14. I couldn't identify with the rather blueprint characters and I have to admit I stopped reading it about halfway through and purposefully left it in the train in teh hopes of some 14 year old finding and enjoying it.

    So, if you consider picking it up. Take a peak not just into the book, but into chapter 1. If you like what you read go ahead, but I wish he had just shown some more of the exquisiteness he so aparently is able to produce in the prologue.

    Awesome

    This is an awesome book, I enjoyed reading about Enteri, the Assasin. You learn a lot about Drizzt's character (one of my favourite parts) from this book. The only part I didn't like about it is that it ends too quickly, but other than that, it is anexelent book.
