Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New York Times–bestselling author R. A. Salvatore takes his readers back to his signature world of Corona, introducing a fascinating new hero.

It is God’s year 54, many years before the Demon Wars, in the land of Corona. The roads are unsafe to travel; goblins and bloodthirsty Powries search out human prey. 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 a book of mystical knowledge and a beautiful and mysterious new wife. But he soon realizes that the world he left behind has changed, and his dream of spreading the wisdom he learned to his fellow monks is crushed. Forced to hide his wife 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. Only the Highwayman travels freely, his sword casting aside both Powries and soldiers. The people need a savior, but is the Highwayman on a mission of mercy...or vengeance?

Review:

"Fans of Salvatore's unadorned approach and broad caricatures of archetypal figures should be pleased with this carnival of treachery and medieval feudalism." Publishers Weekly

Hayley Shaver, November 30, 2012 (view all comments by Hayley Shaver)
I should have hated this book. R.A. Salvatore writes all the cliches you see in everbody else's books into his book - - the outcast turned into dashing highwayman, an underdog yearns for a beautiful woman, a mother's sacrifice for her son turns deadly, and a despot turned evil. Yet, I didn't. It is so smoothly and beautifully written, it is hard to put down. This is another score for Salvatore. Read this book, and you won't regret it.
