Meet the Author

R.A. Salvatore

R.A. Salvatore is the New York Times best-selling author of more than forty novels, including the popular Forgotten Realms series The Legend of Drizzt. He's an avid gamer, father of three, and loyal citizen of Red Sox Nation.

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.

    This is easily one of Salvatore's best book. Salvatore has alway

    This is easily one of Salvatore's best book. Salvatore has always been good at writing beautiful combat scenes and he is at his best here as the action is plentiful. There are several different characters, with various paths, all drawn in by the events going on in the book, and you remain interested in every single one of them. The stakes are high and with every page, you are wonder what will happen and how will the characters get through unscathed, if they get through alive at all.

    I'm from abroad and I'm sorry for my not very good english (I'm reading in english better than speak or write... ) I'm determinated in reading every part of Drizzt's history becouse that history is amazing - including Rise of The King. Fast action, unique adventures and endearing characters - this is all what I want from book and all of this I can find in ROTK. Thank you, Mr. Salvatore!

    Pardon my fan-girl squee because Drizzt is back in this book!  This book seemed particularly hard to put down. As always, lots going on, some of the same villains are back with some of the same friends.  The Companions are here of course, but Jarlaxle and Connerad play their parts, too.  Lots of orcs and goblins to defeat.  The only quibble I have is that some characters are left in pretty dire straits at the end and I need to know when the next book is coming out.  Great fun.  Received free copy for review.

    Again the Companions of the Hall are second to none. Lots of excitement and the book moves along at a fast pace. Loved it!
