"The action sequences are parallel to none and I have discovered what an extraordinary writer R.A. Salvatore is. Sojourn is the perfect fantasy novel and Drizzt Do'Urden is the most exceptional fantasy character ever created. Any way you look at it, this book is stupendous, a masterpiece of fantasy that any reader will love." --Conan Tigard, Reading Review
Drizzt Do'Urden emerges from the Underdark into a strange, alien world of blinding light and mysterious creatures. He's come to the World Above -- a world of hostile humans and even more hostile orcs -- because there's nothing left for him back in the Underdark but certain death at the hands of his surviving family. So out into the wide world he goes.
When Drizzt defends himself against a pack of ravenous gnolls, he makes enemies of the barghests Ulgulu and Kempfana. But even a pair of demonic creatures come to Faerûn from the Abyss can't match the ferocity of a human with hate in his heart and murder on his mind. And Roddy McGristle will even be willing to ally with orcs in order to bring Drizzt to "justice."
Before Drizzt can find a true home on the World Above, he will have to learn its strange ways from a blind ranger, a kindly man who isn't handicapped by the sight of dark elf. And he'll need every whisper of the fighting skill imparted on him by both Montolio and Melee-Magthere to survive his first years out of the Underdark.
Sojourn is the third novel in the epic series the Legend of Drizzt, and follows directly after Homeland and Exile. From here the story goes on to The Crystal Shard, where Drizzt unites with the friends who will accompany him on adventures for years to come.
