Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Fantasy fans, rejoice! Drizzt Do'Urden, the legendary butt-kicking dark elf featured in dozens of R. A. Salvatore's Forgotten Realm's novels, is back and badder than ever in The Lone Drow, the second book in Salvatore's Hunter's Blades trilogy.

In A Thousand Orcs, the first book in the trilogy, an army of orcs and frost giants have joined forces and overrun an important dwarven stronghold. The monstrous fighting force is led by King Obould Many-Arrows, a hulking orc with something most orcs are lacking -- intelligence. During the terrible orc onslaught, one of Drizzt's close friends (and there aren't many of them!), the legendary dwarf King Breunor Battlehammer, is lost as a tower collapses. Drizzt can only watch as his friend falls to what must surely be his death…

In The Lone Drow, Obould Many-Arrows and his evil minions are systematically closing in on Mithral Hall. When the orc priests declare Obould to be the living personification of their god, religious fanaticism reaches a frenzy and the slaughter reaches new levels. With orcs and giants on all sides and trolls in the tunnels, the future looks bleak for Drizzt's companions and all the dwarves inside the great hall. But the dwarf king Breunor isn't quite dead, and Drizzt stalks the orcs in the wilderness like a black-skinned madman, wielding two razor-sharp scimitars. Will it be enough to stop the approaching army?

It doesn't matter if you're a teenager or an octogenarian; Salvatore's Forgotten Realms novels are guaranteed to be addictively entertaining. Great characters, complex story lines, nonstop action, and breathtaking locations -- this is adventure fantasy at its very best. Paul Goat Allen

Publishers Weekly
At the start of bestseller Salvatore's second book in his Tolkienesque fantasy trilogy (after 2002's The Thousand Orcs), hordes of orcs, led by cruel King Obould Many-Arrows, sweep down mechanically and unexcitingly on beleaguered dwarves. When he isn't slaying orcs, the story's hero, the dark elf drow loner Drizzt Do'Urden, suffers guilt for allowing a friendly elf to die in his stead and is attracted to Catti-brie, a beautiful human woman who is the ward of the dying dwarf king, Bruenor Battlehammer. The usual fantasy suspects-gnomes, trolls, elves, flying horses, unicorns, giants-crowd the pages, but the author does at times rise above cliche, and a few characters do achieve some complexity. Obould actually speaks of economics, while an elf, Innovindel, having lost her mate in battle, talks pensively of the centuries of her life, in contrast to the paltry few years of human life. This difference is significant to Drizzt, because Catti-brie is only human. Fans will eagerly await further developments in volume three. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Product Details

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.

    Brilliantly written

    As a Dedicated fan of the dark elf Drizzt and all of his friends i believe that this book could not have been written better than this. It shows the best and worst in all of the beloved characters which makes the story all the more real and frankly all the more addictive. I finished the book in two days.I can't wait until the second book to see what will become of drizzt and his friends.

    Very different from the usual Dritz book...

    This book is very different from the other books featuring Drizzt Do'Urden. I won't say why because it would be sort of a spoiler and I don't want to do that. But I was on the edge of my seat wanting to tell Dritz to go do this and go do that, ha ha. Very, very entertaining. Dritz learns a lot about what it means to be an elf in this book and does a lot of self-reflecting while killing orcs, giants and the usual creatures he fights along the way. Excellent book.

    More Salvatore

    After so many Drizzt books I found this to be pretty much more of the same. When the action was good it was really good but I found this hard to get through because as much as I hate to say it it was pretty much same ol same ol. The book was good of course but for me I think Drizzt has gone as far as I think he can go.

    The Lone Drow Review

    I think that R.A. Salvatore captures Drizzt in all of his stories so far. The books aren't a repeated fantasy like some series where the same things happen over and over. Salvatore leaves his books unpredictable and really throw you for a loop.

    The Best book i've read so far

    It was an amazingly detailed book. It makes you feel whatever Drizzt felt. Salvatore takes you into the action.

    And I Thought The First Book Was Good

    After I finished 'The Thousand Orcs' I went straight out and got 'The Lone Drow.' I really couldn't put it down. I liked how Salvatore made Drizzt an angry, frustrated, and sad character. This book is really good. One of the best fantasy books I've read in a long time. I didn't want it to end.

    The perfect second book

    This book was just as perfect as The thousand orcs! This is better than the Lord of the Rings because it is alot easier to understand. Salvatore's writing makes me feel as though I am right behind Drizzit's shoulder, and in his head at the same time! I can't wait to read the final chapter in this amazing trilogy!

    Just another review ^^V

    The first thing i wanted to say is...'Wow!!' I always thought orcs were stupid and ....ahmmm stupid. But now, after being just finished with The Lone Drow, i think that orcs could win against the humans,orcs and elves (by number, not by...tactics). This is one of the better books of R.A. Salvatore... It would be the best book (5 star) if Shoudra Stargleam did not die :( She was, and still is, my favorite character. I hope she will be resurrected *possible in Forgetten Realms..right?* Ah well... Just read it... You'll like it (a lot). It is certain the your opinion about orcs will change after you've finished this book... ^_~

    AWESOME!!GREAT BOOK!!

    This is a great book for anyone that likes fantasy books.The entire series is good but this book stands above the rest in my mind. The avid detail used to describe the swordfights allows you to picture it as though you sttod beside Drizzt or one of the other characters.

    Quite possibly the best novel of all time

    Salvatore pulls off beautifully in this title with Drizzt. The battles are beautifully sculpted, and the only other book that can even compete is The Dark Elf Trilogy. I believe, at the risk of sounding sacreligious, Salvatore is better than The Great J.R.R. Tolkein himself.
