Overview

From the author of more than a dozen New York Times best sellers and his son, comes the first installment of a brand-new fantasy trilogy written just for young readers. Barely a teen and already guarding a secret that could jeopardize his young life, Maimun is marked for death. With the help of a mysterious stranger, the boy escapes his village and flees out to sea, stowing away on the pirate hunting ship, Sea Sprite, where he comes across a most unlikely ally: the dark elf Drizzt Do'Urden. With a half-demon determined to destroy him, and a crew of sailors resentful of the trouble he's caused, Maimun must find the courage to prove his worth, both to his friends and to himself.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
DemonWars Saga author R. A. Salvatore turns to teens with this adrenaline-laced fantasy, the launch volume of a trilogy. At the center of this energy storm is Maimun, a young man who, though barely a teen, is already marked for death because of a secret he holds. Aided by a mysterious stranger, he escapes from his village, stowing away on The Sea Sprite, a pirate-hunting ship manned with hostile crew members. Much needed help arrives in an unlikely form: Dark elf Drizzt Do'Urden, already familiar to fans of Forgotten Realms. Empathetic characters; exciting situations.
Kirkus Reviews
Opening a new plotline set in the Dungeons & Dragons Forgotten Realms, this father-son collaboration sends Maimun-a 12-year-old orphan with a mysterious past who bears a god-connected stone that seems to radiate good luck-fleeing from the very quick and powerful demon Asbeel. Speaking like Sheherazade to a sword-wielding captor at the opening, Maimun describes in episodic flashbacks how his life turned into one long chase over land and sea once he was given the stone by his enigmatic foster parent, Perrault. 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, due out in 2009. Light on explicit violence, gore or death despite plenty of opportunities for all three, this makes sturdy fare for younger fans of D&D or sword-and-sorcery fantasy in general. (Fantasy. 10-12)

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.
