Drizzt is back in this exciting new trilogy from R.A. Salvatore!

An uneasy peace between the dwarves of Mithral Hall and the orcs of the newly established Kingdom of Many-Arrows can't last long. The orc tribes united under Obould begin to fight each other, and Bruenor is determined to finish the war that nearly killed him and almost destroyed everything he's worked to build. But it will take more than swords and axes to bring a lasting peace to the Spine of the World. Powerful individuals on both sides may have to change the way they see each other. They may have to start to talk. But it won't be easy. Download and start listening now!

    " I really enjoy the writings of R.A. Salvatore and The Orc King is no exception. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 2/15/2014

    " This was one of the better books in the series. I never got bored and the story was revealed in such away to inspire a desire to continue reading simply to find out what would happen. In other words Salvatore stayed away from giving away the ending too soon. He did this through the prologue which is probably some of his best writing to date. If you've never read a Drizzit novel you could actually start with this one if you wanted to because it makes so many references to what has happened over the previous many books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bradley | 2/12/2014

    " The latest Drizzt book I have come across. It is worthy of the saga. A good read that I consumed and felt a moment of sorrow when I turned the last page. It started a little slow but more than made up for it in grand style. =) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trish Woodbury | 2/12/2014

    " If you are a Slavatore fan this is one of his best... Maybe it's because I have been waiting some time to read it but he did a great job with this one. Looking forward to the paperback ofr the next one in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marie | 1/21/2014

    " I just finished this last night, and once again RA Salvatore did not disappoint. Drizzt, Bruenor, Regis and Catti-brie are in a pickle with Obould Many-Arrows right outside Mithral Hall, and Wulfgar has a decision to make that will alter the course of the books, but in the long run I think it will be great for the fans. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Glucose Johnny | 1/12/2014

    " A chore to read. Disappointing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alan | 1/11/2014

    " I was going to rate this a 3, but the evolution of Tos'un was enough to rate a 4 here. Although the book's end is given away in the first 3 pages, it was still an entertaining read. As always, the battle scenes are Salvatore's forte, and these books are such a quick read that it is hard to complain about the minor commitment it is to finish one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James Stout | 1/11/2014

    " I think I'll try another novel or two by Salvatore before I make a verdict. His style is entertaining though clearly he writes lots of stream of consciousness and has an editor who believes 'less is more'. Still, I like his characters and the action sequences are powerful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ethan | 1/6/2014

    " Salvatore still has awesome and descriptive action sequences. He also has really come along way with the personalities and moral struggles. Very good read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Quinton Cole | 1/6/2014

    " great enemy and awesome heros "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim Dunn | 12/30/2013

    " Good, but not great. Long time since I've read about Drizzit "and the gang"....nice to reacquaint, hopefully the next in the series will have that missing oomph! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 12/29/2013

    " Another good Drizzt series. Although you never know when the might Drizzt might finally meet his match, it is funny to see the different situations he manages to pull through. This series was a touch on the sad side, but still a great read overall. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy Szekeres | 12/24/2013

    " Slow start but picks up "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 12/8/2013

    " I actually have a signed copy of this one. This was the first one of his books I bought in hardback. I had this one signed because this is when I finally caught up to when he was releasing them "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 3/3/2013

    " All-time favorite Drizzt book! So good! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew | 1/7/2011

    " Salvatore sets a series in which he details major events that happen to the world around his characters. War rages between Mithral Hall and the orcs that surround it. This is just the first of many landmark changes that will occur in this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Backsinner | 11/22/2010

    " The beginning of massive changes in The Forgotten Realms. From here on out, the world within it will be different. Great read, epic fights, and amazing story. Already missing the old world, and adventures. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bradley | 5/20/2010
