Praise for Stone of Tymora:
 “This fast-paced fantasy . . . is a perfect pick for . . . readers seeking powerful characterization and complex, fast-changing stories.”—Midwest Book Review
“[T]he lucidly described action and swift pace will keep the pages turning and anticipation of further adventures simmering.” —Booklist
“The pace never falters, the cast is positively festooned with pirates and menacing magical creatures (such characters from parallel stories as Drizzt Do'Urden the Dark Elf also put in appearances) and Maimun's narrative ends on a cliffhanger that will leave readers slavering for the next episode.” —Kirkus
 
Overview:
Meet Maimun—an orphan who couldn’t imagine how unfortunate it would be to discover a stone that makes him forever lucky. Fleeing a powerful demon named Asbeel, Maimun stows away aboard the ship Sea Sprite, where he encounters a cast of characters well-known to Salvatore fans: Captain Deudermont, Drizzt Do’Urden, Wulfgar, Catti-brie, and the dwarf Bruenor. Drizzt becomes a mentor to Maimun and aboard Deudermont’s ship, they sail the treacherous seas of the Forgotten Realms. Hunted by a demon, haunted by a mysterious spellcaster, and chased by a pirate, Maimun, with Drizzt’s help, must unravel the secrets of the Stone of Tymora before his luck runs out!

In typical Salvatore Fashion this book moves. Depth and detail where you can see everything they are talking about. You will lose time reading this like all the Drizzt books. The fight sequences are not as fluid as when he writes for Drizzt, but then again he has been describing those scenes for over 2 decades. You can see Geno in this book because the story telling is a little different style, but man do they both know how to suck you in and make it move. The ending was different, not what I expected. It was a great pleasure to read while I was waiting for R.A.'s next book in the Companion Codex to come out. Love the fact that if you have read all the Drizzt books you get to revisit some of the events and remember what was going on with Drizzt as you explore these characters too. This book was great, marketing for it was poor. Took me a long time to figure out this was a book and not a D&D module. I bought it on my Nook so if it was a module I wouldn't waste a lot of money. I will go buy hardcover now. Buy it and read it, you will definitely enjoy it. If you have not read R.A. Salvatore this would be a great book to try and be introduced to the style since it is a great stand alone story. You won't regret it. -Turnwind Alabine IV

I became hooked on the dark elf books and struggle to find things to read between but this was awesome.

I have always enjoyed reading books by R.A. Salvatore. He, in my professional opinion, is the BEST writer mankind has ever had the pleasure in knowing. I "fell in-love" with Drizzt about 10 years ago. I can't wait til book 4 of the Neverwinter series comes out... The Last Threshold. I would like to know... will there be a follow up to the book Stone of Tymora???
