The Thousand Orcs by R. A. Salvatore

Fiction: Fantasy. Paperback from Wizards of the Coast. Published in 2003. 367 pages. On loan from the The Kent District Library.

This book is the first in the Hunter’s Blade Trilogy. Several years ago I read The Dark Elf Trilogy by the same author. I don’t suppose it’s necessary to read the other first, but I think it would make reading this series more enjoyable.

Drizzt Do’Urden is a compelling character – even if I can’t pronounce his name!

Publisher’s summary:
The Thousand Orcs is yet another top release from premiere Forgotten Realms author R.A. Salvatore. This mass market reprint focuses primarily on his signature character, Drizzt Do’Urden, who has been the subject of most of Salvatore’s best-selling titles for Wizards of the Coast, Inc. This title includes a sample chapter from the author’s next hardcover, The Lone Drow.

One Dark Elf.

Two Enchanted Blades.

One Unknown Enemy.

And a Horde of Invaders.

When a blood-thirsty band of orcs led by an as-yet-unseen enemy comes rampaging out of the Spine of the World, it lays waste to everything in its path. Dark elf ranger Drizzt Do’Urden and his most trusted friends find themselves in the path of destruction. As blades slash and feet trample, even the heroes may not survive a desperate stand.
