"What makes Salvatore such a force in the fantasy world is his knack for graphic mass battles, well-sketched secondary characters, believable one-on-one combat scenes and his keen sense of history and physical geography in a world rich in magic and intrigue."
--Las Vegas News and Culture Weekly on The Lone Drow
Drizzt Do'Urden started his life an outcast, and spent decades on his own, on the run, on borrowed time. But when he found a home, friends—even a family—among the dwarves of Clan Battlehammer, he set that wild Hunter inside him to one side. Until he saw King Bruenor buried under the rubble of a fallen tower, dead at the hands of an army of orcs.
A cabal of dangerous dark elves and an equally dangerous frost giant princess are sure they're pulling King Obould's strings, but the Chosen of Gruumsh will prove he's no one's puppet, and make his own indelible mark on the history of the Spine of the World.
Drizzt fights his own inner demons as much as his orc enemies, and even a pair of elves who try to help are brushed aside in favor of blind vengeance. Drizzt is dangerous enough on a good day, but when he's sure he's all alone, he'll prove just how much ruin a lone drow can bring.
The Lone Drow picks up right where The Thousand Orcs left off, and leads to the final installment in the epic Hunter's Blades Trilogy, The Two Swords. This is Drizzt at his scimitar-slashing best, alone against an army of bloodthirsty orcs.
