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.

    Close, but no cigar

    I have loved every book in the whole series thus far... except maybe this one. For me book 9 made me cry a little and a bit mad in the beginning half but overall is a little slow and boring for me. The last 100 pages though went every well, but nothing close to the humor or excitment of the others preceding this one. Still, believe it's highly worth reading and the end is the best part.

    A reason for Victory to Pavel

    This was a great novel, one of the best of the series. To Pavel, The reason the Drow lost the battle of Mithral Hall - Reread the beginning ot Part 5 'Old Kings and Queens'. Also, know your history and realize how many time throughtout history the underdog has somehow managed to win the war. Whether it be hope, love of country,etc. The mightiest does not always prevail.

    Drow should of won the battle

    The book was good, but I can't believe that drow last the battle. They are much better fighters and were trained since the birth. They should of crashed miserable dwarfs and capture Drizzt. Not that I don¿t like Drizzt Do'Urden and his friends, but come on six thousand, drow soldiers, born killing machines and some other lesser monsters can¿t destroy some dwarfs and humans, I don¿t think so¿ From the big fan of the hole drow nation

    There Should Be More Stars!!

    This is the best Drizzt book I there is, and I've read them all. Great battles, touching moments, it's all here. Salvatore is the best author whose books I've read, and I recommend that you read all of the others!

    The best of 'em all (and i have read them all)

    This is by far the best book in the Drizzt Do'Urden (Compainians of the Hall which ever you prefer). Mainly because of all the action the entire book is a war its great. Its covor to covor fighting as only R.A. Salvatore can do it.

    READ THIS BOOK!

    This book is a terrific book that tells a story of how the dwarves of Mithril Hall defend themselves from the drow who have but two goals, take over Mithril Hall and kill Drizzt. Little do they know that they have to fight not only the dwarves, but their allies, including the Harpell wizerds(uh oh, sounds like trouble, as you'll find out.) But the drow have a couple of tricks up their sleeves. Who will win? Has Drizzt and the dwarves met their match? Read the book and find out.
