Starless Night

Starless Night

I can find no answers in Mithril Hall…
The apparent serenity of Drizzt Do’Urden, the brooding quiet, will show me nothing of the future designs of the drow. Yet, for the sake of my friends, I must know those dark intentions. And so I fear that there remains only one place for me to look…

His scimitars slash at monsters too evil to reside under the sunlight of the surface world, while his inner strength wrestles with the tumult of emotions assaulting the noble drow when he looks once more on his dreaded homeland. All the while Drizzt must fend off the weight of guilt he carries for a dear friend lost to him forever.

Revenge and Resurrection in a Frozen Wasteland!

Drizzt and Catti brie have been away from Mithral Hall for six long years, but the pain of a lost companion still weighs heavily on their strong shoulders. Chasing pirates aboard Captain Deudermont’s Sea Sprite is enough to draw their attention away from their grief. Then a mysterious castaway on an uncharted island sends them back to the very source of their pain, and into the clutches of a demon with vengeance on his mind.

The Silent Blade

When the vile Crystal Shard once again reveals itself, Drizzt must race against his most formidable enemies in hopes of destroying it before it finds the one being that can help it enslave the world: a dark elf named Jarlaxle.

This deluxe reissue features a new Todd Lockwood cover and an introduction from The New York Times best selling author Philip Athans, who has served as Salvatore’s editor for almost a decade, starting with the original release of this book.

The Spine of the World

‘It is the heart and soul of Wulfgar, ultimately, that will surface in the end. I, and anyone else, could no more influence that heart and soul than the sun itself. Curiously, it is in that celestial body that I take my comfort now when thinking about Wulfgar. Why watch the dawn? Why then, why that particular time over noontime, or any hour of daylight?Because in the dawn, the sun is more brilliant by far. Because in the dawn, we see the resurgence after the darkness. There is my hope, for as with the sun, so it can be true of people. Those who fall climb back up, and brighter will they shine in the eyes of those about them.I watch the dawn and think of the man I thought I knew. And pray that my perceptions were correct.’ Drizzt Do’Urden

Sea of Swords

It is good to be home. It is good to hear the wind of Icewind Dale, to feel its invigorating bite, like some reminder that I am alive. The Dark ElfWhen the mark of the great warhammer Aegis fang is found branded on the back of a vicious outlaw, Drizzt can no longer merely hope that Wulfgar is safe. The dark elf and his companions set out to find the barbarian once and for all. As they discover pieces of the puzzle their friend’s life has become, Drizzt grows only more determined to locate him. The BarbarianAs his friends search for him, Wulfgar sails with Captain Deudermont in search of the stolen Aegis fang, now in the hands of the vile pirate Sheila Kree. But the pirate isn’t willing to sit around waiting to be caught. She has other plans. Drizzt, Cattie brie, Regis, Bruenor, and Wulfgar the Companions of the Hall come together for the first time since The Silent Blade in a reunion filled with discovery and adventure. The paperback version of a top selling hardcover featuring the return of Drizzt Do’Urden, R.A. Salvatore’s most popular character.

Servant of the Shard

This is the latest offering from New York Times bestselling author R. A. Salvatore, best known for his immensely popular Forgotten Realms novels. In Servant of the Shard, Salvatore focuses on two of his greatest villains. Having seized the Crystal Shard at the end of The Silent Blade, the dark elf Jarlaxle now struggles to control it.

The assassin will soon find himself on a path his most hated enemy has walked before him a path that leads to a place where someone like Entreri would never be welcome. The DrowJarlaxle has ascended from dark Menzoberranzan with only evil intentions. The malevolent Crystal Shard’s influence on him intensifies until even the drow agents he brought with him grow fearful. When Bregan D aerthe itself begins to turn on him, Jarlaxle will be forced to find a savior in the man he s come to enslave.

Promise of the Witch King

The book was hidden well. It’s pages promised the power of the Witch King himself. And now that it s been found, even the fact that it kills anyone foolish enough to crack its cover won t stop people from fighting over it. Welcome to the Bloodstone Lands!Human assassin Artemis Entreri and his dark elf companion Jarlaxle have come to the demon haunted wastelands of the frozen north at the request of their dragon patron. It doesn t take long for them to find themselves caught in the middle of a struggle between powerful forces that would like nothing more than to see them both dead…
or worse. But Entreri and Jarlaxle aren t just any wandering sellswords, and the ancient evils and bitter blood feuds of the wild Bloodstone Lands may have finally met their match.

Road of the Patriarch

To her, to her dying breath, you were the untouchable one, the one whose flesh her dagger could not penetrate.

THE ASSASSIN

A cold and emotionless killer for whom every soul has a price, even his own, embarks on a path to find out just how high that price can be.

THE MERCENARY

ILNEZHARA and TAZMIKELLA are ancient dragons of great power, accustomed to easily manipulating the humans around them. But not all humans are so easily led.

Echoes of the Fourth Magic

The extraordinary beginning of an epic series brimming with the unbridled action, adventure, and imagination that have made the name R. A. Salvatore synonymous with the best in fantasy!Jeff ‘Del’ DelGuidice was proud of his assignment to the research submarine The Unicorn. But his mission had barely begun when the vessel was sucked into a mysterious underseas void where time stood still, before propelling it forward, through the centuries. The crew surfaced in a strange, magical world changed forever by nuclear holocaust. Here a race of angelic beings had taken pity on the remnants of humankind, offering a chosen few a precious second chance. Thus the Isle of Hope was raised from the poisoned seas and set like a jewel in Earth’s ravaged crown. But the jewel had a flaw, a dark vein of evil. For a sinister expert of the mystical arts had embraced the forbidden third magic, the most deadly sorcery of all. Only Del could defeat it a hero sworn to peace and fated to wield the dazzling power of the fourth magic…

The Witch’s Daughter

With the bold adventure and brilliant magic that have made him one of fantasy’s bestselling authors, R. A. Salvatore continues the epic series that began with Echoes of the Fourth Magic. Join him for a spellbinding tale of darkness, fantasia, and unbridled imagination.

Though many perished in the dark times past, a precious few survivors escaped, fleeing certain doom to find a dazzling, dangerous land of wonder. Here wizards and witches inhabited forests spun from enchantment and towers of celestial beauty. But in this place of promised safety, the Black Warlock was rising from the ashes of defeat with an insatiable lust to dominate the world.

Square in the path of peril was Rhiannon, the gently reared daughter of the Emerald Witch. As hamlets from the Crystal Mountains to Avalon fell before the fury of the Black Warlock, the young witch sensed a sudden call; strange, terrifying powers tingled within her body. Now Rhiannon had to summon these new, untested abilities to stop the ancient warlock, an enemy who had long since mastered the forces of the universe and bent them to his diabolical will…

Bastion of Darkness

has hurled back the demon armies of Morgan Thalasi. Always the Black
Warlock has rebounded, stronger and more evil. But never has he wielded such power as now. With the Staff of Death, Thalasi can raise a new army from out of the very ground soldiers who cannot be killed because they are already dead.

As the Black Warlock and his fearsome general the foul wraith that was once Hollis Mitchell prepares a devastating attack, the humans and elves of Ynis Aielle are staggered by a fresh calamity. The beautiful
Rhiannon, daughter of the Emerald Witch, has been captured by Mitchell and given over to his dark master. Now the last hope of defeating
Thalasi and Rhiannon’s last hope as well lies at the heart of a mountain, guarded by a dragon as old as the world itself…

The Dragon King

In volume two, he made use of a magical cape that renders its wearer invisible except for a lingering crimson silhouette. Now, the evil Greensparrow is back and with a vengeance. Using dark, hideous magic, Greensparrow has taken the form of a massive dragon a virtually unstoppable force that only Luthien can defeat.

The Demon Awakens

R. A. Salvatore, the New York Times bestselling author of Siege of Darkness, Starless Night, and The Legacy, is universally acclaimed for his vivid characters, nonstop action, and stunning depictions of battle. Now, in The Demon Awakens, he has written his masterwork, creating an astonishing new world for readers to explore and a hero to lead the way. In the classic tradition of Salvatore’s own Drizzt Do’Urden, young Elbryan Wynden must confront the dark tides of destiny, and forge a path through heartache and deadly peril in the search for justice and peace. In a volcanic cavern a great, awakening beast vexes to life all that is violent and base in the enchanted land of Corona. No creature dwelling there will remain unscathed. Incited by this newly awakened evil, goblins ravage the settlements of the frontier, abetted by fearsome giants. In tiny Dundallis, their swift, merciless attack leaves behind two shattered orphans. Stripped of all they hold dear including each other Pony and her lifelong friend, the youth Elbryan, face an uphill battle for survival. Scarcely more than children, they teeter unaware between despair and destiny. Meanwhile, on a far off island, a shower of multicolored gemstones has fallen onto the black sand shores. When harvested by the monks whose order guards secrets of magic, these stones will contain incredible powers, carrying in them the key to all that is good in the world…
and all that is evil. Pray that they don’t fall into the wrong, clawed hands.R. A. Salvatore’s most powerful novel yet, The Demon Awakens is fantasy adventure par excellence, peopled with a cast of unforgettable characters fighting for good in an innocent world beset by ancient and implacable evil.

The Demon Spirit

In The Demon Awakens, New York Times bestselling author R. A. Salvatore created a dazzling new world of fantasy adventure and striking drama. Beset by danger, the elf trained hero Elbryan Wynden championed the cause of good and confronted the daunting powers of darkness. Now with The Demon Spirit, Salvatore takes us deeper into the twisted heart of evil that lies at the core of this epic masterwork. After believing the tide of darkness has receded from their beloved homeland, Pony and the Ranger Elbryan soulmates from childhood together discover the terrifying truth: the power of the demon dactyl was never entirely vanquished by the reverent monk Avelyn Desbris’ sacrifice. Now, armed with the mighty magic of the gemstones that are Avelyn’s legacy, they must battle a darkness that has infiltrated the most sacred of places as a once admired spiritual leader rededicates his life to the most vicious, most insidious revenge against the forces of good. And with the gemstones within grasp, there may be no stopping the spread of the malignant evil…
Epic in scope and spellbinding in its portrayal of the clash between innocence and unspeakable malevolence, R. A. Salvatore’s The Demon Spirit is a fantasy tour de force that leaves the reader in breathless anticipation of this extraordinary trilogy’s stunning conclusion.

The Demon Apostle

With The Demon Awakens and The Demon Spirit, the first two volumes in his masterful DemonWars saga, New York Times bestselling author R. A. Salvatore set a new standard for fantasy adventure, creating the enchanted world of Corona a world besieged by the dark forces of an ancient, all consuming evil. Now, with The Demon Apostle, Salvatore brings his epic symphony of good versus evil to its stunning conclusion. It is a time of mourning. A time of hope. With the demon dactyl and its foul minions defeated, the war weary citizens of the kingdom of Honce the Bear wish only to bury their dead and begin rebuilding their broken lives. Yet the fragile balance between church and state lies shattered. The specter of civil war haunts the ravaged land and a specter more fearsome still. For the demon, though defeated, was not destroyed. And now its vengeful spirit has found an unholy sanctuary at the very heart of the Abellican Church. As the elf trained ranger Elbryan Wynden presses north to reclaim the savage Timberlands from retreating goblin hordes, and his companion, Pony, mistress of gemstone magic, turns south to the civilized but no less perilous streets of Palmaris, they find themselves caught up in a ruthless power struggle to decide the fate of all Corona. A struggle that will push their courage and love to the breaking point…
and beyond. Condemned as heretics, the two heroes are hunted by dangerous enemies. The leader of the Church boasts a mastery of gemstone magic that rivals Pony’s proven might. And the Abbot’s right hand, the Bishop of Palmaris, has claws so sharply honed by hate and magic that no man or ranger can withstand their killing stroke. Then an unexpected twist of fate forces Pony to make a harrowing choice, one that may doom the world to demonic domination.A fantasy of rare scope and accomplishment that seamlessly weaves unforgettable characters and events into a brilliant tapestry of bravery and betrayal, sacrifice and redemption, The Demon Apostle brings R. A. Salvatore’s sweeping masterwork to a triumphant close and to a new beginning.

But when a deadly sickness suddenly appears among the people of Corona, Pony must undertake a pilgrimage that will test her powersand her faithas never before. Watching her every step of the way is the man she hates above all else: Marcalo DeUnnero, the villain responsible for Elbryans death…
who would desire nothing more than to lead Pony down that same treacherous path to destruction. Part 2 of 3

Ascendance

Years have passed since the great miracle atop Mount Aidaa miracle known as the Covenant of Avelyn. Corona is a different place.

They called him Aydrian. Aydrian: a boy raised to be a weapon. A boy who has never known the love of a human mother.

Transcendence

Transcendence

It is the summer of 839. Brave and beautiful Brynn Dharielle sets out on a daring mission to free her beloved homeland from tyrannical rule. But she cannot imagine the depth of chaos, corruption, and betrayal that seethes admist a ruthless sect of warrior priests, led and manipulated by an evil chieftain who conceals a dark, age old secret.

For Brynn and her trusted elven companion, the way to Behren turns into a fierce and illuminating voyage beneath the Belt and Buckle mountains. And while they face many dangers, the knowledge they acquire will have profound implications for the future of the elven valley, a land shaped by the plotting of a queen desperate to hold onto her magic.

Meanwhile, by the time Brynn reaches the land where she once saw her parents murdered, the seeds of revolution are already flourishing. For a courageous young woman and her elven mentor, the first salvo of a sweeping battle has begun one that will threaten to destroy the heart and soul of their world.

The eagerly anticipated new novel in R. A. Salvatore’s Second DemonWars saga, Transcendence is an extraordinary adventure that introduces a remarkable new hero and explores the mysteries of enlightenment and the art of war…
in a dazzling epic of the imagination. /Content /EditorialReview EditorialReview Source Amazon. com Review /Source Content In Transcendence, the second book in his second DemonWars Saga, author R.A. Salvatore adds another layer to the events of book one, Ascendance, with a parallel plot line in the desert kingdom of Behren. He spotlights the Elven trained Ranger Brynn Dharielle as she quests to claim her birthright and free the nomadic To gai from the theocratic occupation of Behren and its dark kingpriest Yakim Douan.

Transcendence is as much the story of Brynn’s quest to free the oppressed To gai as it is the tale of their oppressors. While events in Ascendance are heating up, Transcendence introduces the Yatol leader Douan who is single mindedly preparing for his, yes, ‘Transcendence‘ wherein the leader will die to be reborn. It’s the secret behind this miracle and Douan’s machinations to secure his lands in preparation for the rebirth that will eventually allow Brynn to free the To gai from the Behrenese yoke. But Brynn’s quest will unleash the deadly power of an ancient ally who will test her resolve to win her people’s freedom.

Transcendence is excellent fantasy. Salvatore’s characters stride across a grand stage that is epic in scale yet still detailed and personal. The juxtaposition of happenings in the first two books sets up what will be a thrilling conclusion as the political implications of each will undoubtedly collide in book three. Jeremy Pugh

Immortalis

ImmortalisIn this extraordinary third and final work in the Second DemonWars Saga, R. A. Salvatore weaves a diverse tapestry of characters and events from all the novels of the DemonWars Saga into an epic, unforgettable conclusion. Casting his inimitable spell of the human and supernatural, love and war, faith and faithlessness, Salvatore’s crowning work is centered on a dark young king, driven by a quest to remake humankind. In Honce the Bear, King Aydrian Boudabras wakes in a cold sweat, his conscience haunted by those he has killed to garner power, including the rightful king before him, Danube, his mother s husband. Now Aydrian is preparing his armies for war, forging loyalties, playing one adversary against the other, and giving those around him barely a glimpse of his remarkable powers. Even Adyrian does not fully understand what drives his ambition, the guiding voices he first heard from the shadow of Oracle, or the truth of his birth in the elven land before it was stained and mortally threatened by the demon dactyl. Yet in the neighboring Behren, the evil Yatol Bardoh is unleashing a war engine of his own, using armies of mercenaries and horrific tactics to bring down the walls of Jacintha and to drive a ferocious dragon from the city of Dharyan. Between these two men, an explosive chain of events has been set into motion. Refugees flood the roads and valleys, alliances are formed and broken, navies clash at sea, and assassins seek their moment to strike. With Aydrian s power and popularity turning into an avalanche, and the courageous Brynn Dharielle valiantly standing in the way of the Yatol Bardoh, the great players in the DemonWars Saga will unite and clash on a single, magnificent stage. But as the lands run with blood, there are no adversaries like a mother and her long lost son. For Jilseponie, once queen of Honce the Bear, has discovered the truth of her son Aydrian s birth. And now she becomes the only mortal on earth with magic enough to stop her own son by any means necessary from his cataclysmic quest…

From the Hardcover edition.

The Highwayman

Long ago, in a distant land, a lonely young man struggles to discover who he is and where he belongs. He carries the blood and magic of two peoples, a sword of unimaginable power, and the staggering potential for great good…
or greater evil. R.A. Salvatore takes his readers back to his signature world of Corona, where he introduces a fascinating new hero destined to become a fantasy legend. It is God’s Year 54, many years before the DemonWars in the land of Corona. The roads are unsafe to travel, where goblins and bloodthirsty Powries search out human prey. In this savage world, Princes feast while peasants starve, and two religions struggle fiercely for control. Bran Dynard, a monk of the fledgling religion of Abelle, returns from his mission in a far off land with two prizes: A book of mystical knowledge, and a new wife, the beautiful and mysterious Sen Wi. But the world he left behind has changed, and his dream of spreading the powerful wisdom he learned to his fellow monks is soon crushed. Forced to hide Sen Wi and his precious book, Bran must decide whom he can trust, and where he should now place his faith. Twenty years later,the situation has grown darker and more desperate. The land is devastated by war, and even the rich and powerful live in fear. Only the masked Highwayman travels freely, his sword casting aside Powries and soldiers with equal ease. The people long for a savior, but is The Highwayman on a mission of mercy…
or vengence?

The Ancient

Searching for his long lost father, Bransen Garibond is tricked into journeying across the Gulf of Corona to the wild lands of Vanguard, where he is pressed into service in a desperate war against the brutal Samhaist, Ancient Badden.

On an Alpinadoran lake, just below his magical ice castle, several societies, caught in the web of their own conflicts, are oblivious to Ancient Badden’s devastating plans to destroy them.

Bransen becomes the link between the wars, and if he fails, all who live on the lake will perish, and all of northern Honce will fall under the shadow of the merciless and vengeful Samhaists.

The Ancient is part of the Saga of the First King, a four book series that chronicles the early days of Corona, the same world as Salvatore’s bestselling DemonWars saga.

The Dame

The vast road network of Honce, completed a decade before, had brought great optimism to the people of the land. Commerce could travel more freely and so could armies, and those armies, it was hoped, would rid the land at long last of the vicious, bloody cap dwarfs and goblins. For the first time, the many individual kingdoms, the holdings of Honce, would be brought closer together, perhaps even united. For the last few years, those promises had become a nightmare to the folk, as two powerful lairds fought for supremacy of a hoped for united kingdom.

Bransen Garibond, the Highwayman, held little real interest in that fight. To him the warring lairds were two sides of the same coin. Whichever side won, the outcome for the people of Honce would be the same, Bransen believed. A journey north, however, taught Bransen that his views were simplistic at best, and that some things like honor and true friendship might truly matter.

In The Dame, Bransen’s road becomes a quest for the truth, of Honce and of himself, a quest to put right over wrong. That path is fraught with confusion and fraud, and a purposeful blurring of morality by those who would seek to use the Highwayman s extraordinary battle skills and popularity among the commonfolk for their own nefarious ends.

The Bear

The war of Honce drags on, and the roads and seas are littered with bodies. To everyone’s stunned disbelief, Yeslnik the Fool has tipped the war s scales in his favor. The reign of the newly self appointed King Yeslnik is already distinguished as the most bloody and merciless in Honce history. Trapped, Dame Gwydre and Father Artolivan concoct a desperate plot to join forces with Laird Ethelbert, the lesser of two vicious evils. But Ethelbert s paid assassins slew Jameston Sequin and nearly did the same to Bransen. Embittered by it all, Bransen seeks to extricate himself from the selfish goals of all of combatants. But in an odd twist of fate and crossed loyalties, Bransen sees in his old nemesis, Bannagran The Bear of Honce and the man who slew his adoptive father a darker image of his own heart. Allies and battle lines become tangled, motives indistinguishable as old friends become enemies and old enemies become allies.

The Woods Out Back

Bored with life after college, Gary Leger wanders into the woods behind his house and discovers a fantasy world peopled with elves, dwarfs, witches, and dragons.

In an effort to avert a catastrophic civil war, Leia travels with her daughter Jaina, her sister in law Mara Jade, and the loyal protocol droid C 3PO, to conduct face to face diplomatic negotiations with Nom Anor. But he proves resistant to Leia’s entreaties and, far more inexplicably, within the Force, where a being should be, was…
blank space. Meanwhile, Luke is plagued by reports of rogue Jedi Knights who are taking the law into their own hands. And so he wrestles with a dilemma: Should he attempt, in this climate of mistrust, to reestablish the legendary Jedi Council?As the Jedi and the Republic focus on internal struggles, a new threat surfaces, unnoticed, beyond the farthest reaches of the Outer Rim. An enemy appears from outside known space, bearing weapons and technology unlike anything New Republic scientists have ever seen. Suddenly Luke, Mara, Leia, Han Solo, and Chewbacca along with the Solo children are thrust again into battle, to defend the freedom so many have fought and died for. But this time, all their courage, sacrifice, and even the power of the Force itself may not be enough…

From the depths of catastrophe, a glimmer of hopeAfter the capture of Coruscant, the mighty heart of the New Republic, a stunned galaxy fears that nothing can stop the Yuuzhan Vong.

The young Jedi Knight is in the care of Vergere, a fascinating creature of mystery and power, her intentions hard to fathom, her cruelties rarely concealed. But this master of inscrutable arts has much to teach the young Jedi…
for she holds the key to a new way to experience the Force, to take it to another level dangerous, dazzling, perhaps deadly. In the wrong hands, the tremendous energies of the Force can be devastating. And there are others watching Jacen’s process closely, waiting patiently for the moment when he will be ready for their own dire purposes. Now, all is in shadows. Yet whatever happens, whether Jacen s newfound mastery unleashes light or darkness, he will never be the same Jedi again…

Attack of the Clones

There is a great disturbance in the Force…
. From the sleek ships of the glimmering Coruscant skyscape to the lush gardens of pastoral Naboo, dissent is roiling. The Republic is failing, even under the leadership of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, elected ten years earlier to save the crumbling government. Separatists threaten war, and the Senate is hopelessly divided, unable to determine whether to raise an army for battle or keep the fragile peace. It is a stalemate that once broken, could lead to galactic chaos. Mischievous and resolved, courageous to the point of recklessness, Anakin Skywalker has come of age in a time of great upheaval. The nineteen year old apprentice to Obi Wan Kenobi is an enigma to the Jedi Council, and a challenge to his Jedi Master. Time has not dulled Anakin’s ambition, nor has his Jedi training tamed his independent streak. When an attempt on Senator Padm Amidala s life brings them together for the first time in ten years, it is clear that time also has not dulled Anakin s intense feelings for the beautiful diplomat. The attack on Senator Amidala just before a crucial vote thrusts the Republic even closer to the edge of disaster. Masters Yoda and Mace Windu sense enormous unease. The dark side is growing, clouding the Jedi s perception of the events. Unbeknownst to the Jedi, a slow rumble is building into the roar of thousands of soldiers readying for battle. But even as the Republic falters around them, Anakin and Padm find a connection so intense that all else begins to fall away. Anakin will lose himself and his way in emotions a Jedi, sworn to hold allegiance only to the Order, is forbidden to have. Based on the story by George Lucas and the screenplay by George Lucas and Jonathan Hales, this intense and revealing novel by bestselling author R. A. Salvatore sheds new light on the legend of Star Wars and skillfully illuminates one of our most beloved sagas. From the Hardcover edition.

And now, finally, there are signs that the tide may be turning in the New Republic’s favor. After capturing crucial Yuuzhan Vong intelligence, Jedi fighter pilot Jaina Solo prepares to lead a daring surprise strike against an enemy flagship.

And on Mon Calamari, the New Republic s provisional capital, the retired, ailing hero Admiral Ackbar has conceived a major tactical plan that could spell the beginning of a swift end for the Yuuzhan Vong. Yet even as opposing squadrons face off in the depths of space, intrigue runs rampant: in the heated political race for Chief of State…
in the shadows where Yuuzhan Vong spies plot assassinations…
