"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 on Sojourn
The first mistake the newborn baby Drizzt made in his seconds-long life was that he was born a boy. Only a murder inside his own ruthless family stayed his mother's hand -- a hand poised to sacrifice the infant Drizzt to the demon-goddess Lolth. That fate avoided, life doesn't get too much easier for a young male in a society dominated by the matron mothers of Menzoberranzan, the shadowy City of Spiders. As he grows to adulthood, Drizzt learns to take care of himself, and learns that ultimately, taking care of himself means taking himself out of Menzoberranzan.
But Drizzt's mother and sisters have plans of their own for the lowly boy of House Do'Urden. If he's to escape the City of Spiders, Drizzt will have to escape them first -- only to find himself under the blinding sun of the World Above. There he hopes to find a new life, but at first he finds only prejudice and danger, until he's taken in by a blind human who teaches him the ways of the ranger, and a strange new sensation called hope.
This collector's edition contains the complete text of the first three novels in the epic Legend of Drizzt: Homeland, Exile, and Sojourn. There's no better way to begin the journey of adventure that millions of fantasy fans have taken to heart for more than two decades, and no better gift for a friend who's ready to experience the Legend of Drizzt. From here, move on to the next collector's edition, or the book that really started it all, The Crystal Shard.
