On the dusty plains of Netheril, a young Bedine girl spins a web of forbidden magic, obliterating a pair of assassins with a single lightning strike.
On the banks of the Sea of Fallen Stars, a tiny thief walks willingly into battle with a ruthless killer, a wide grin upon his face.
In the tunnels of Citadel Felbarr, a dwarfling is ambushed and strikes back with an attack well beyond his apparent strength and years.
These three seemingly unrelated commoners, growing up across the far reaches of the Forgotten Realms(r), hold the fate of Faerun's most famous dark elf, Drizzt Do Urden, in their hands.
But that fate is far from certain. For in the shadows a cunning cabal of wizards is watching, intent on hunting Chosen mortals blessed by the gods. These wizards know something mere commoners do not: Long-forgotten gods have begun to stir. Long-lost lands have begun to tremble. The world around them is about to change. And these wizards will do whatever it takes to turn the coming chaos to their advantage.
In this first book of the six-book "Sundering" series, "New York Times" bestselling author R.A. Salvatore launches a major world-shaping event that will revive old favorites, introduce new complications, and move his signature hero Drizzt into a restored era of the Forgotten Realms.
About the Author
R.A. Salvatore s first published novel, The Crystal Shard, introduced the world to the dark elf Drizzt Do Urden whose ongoing adventures continue to captivate readers all around the world. His books have been translated into more than fourteen different languages and regularly debut on the New York Times best seller list, including his most recent series featuring Drizzt, The Neverwinter Saga. Salvatore s love of fantasy, and literature in general, began in college when he was given a copy of J.R.R. Tolkein s The Lord of the Rings as a Christmas gift. He promptly changed his major from computer science to journalism, graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communications from Fitchburg State College, then returned for the degree he always cherished, the Bachelor of Arts in English. Soon after that, he began writing seriously, penning the novel that would become Echoes of the Fourth Magic. His novel, The Silent Blade, won the Origins award and in 1997, he donated his letters, manuscripts, and other professional papers to his alma mater, forming the library s R.A. Salvatore Collection. A native of Massachusetts, Salvatore continues to live in his home state along with his wife Diane.
