I was walking by the bookstore yesterday and I saw a display set up for R. A. Salvatore’s new novel, The Orc King, which follows the adventures of Salvatore’s character Drizzt Do’Urden, the drow elf. What caught my eye was the sticker at the bottom of the book. I don’t know how well you can see it in this JPG, but take a gander.
Do you see it? Well, if not then read this blurb about the book taken from Salvatore’s website.
RENTON, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–For millions of readers, Drizzt Doâ€™Urden has become a lifelong hero and companion. The iconic character â€” a drow with jet black skin and striking, long white hair â€” has been revered since his debut 20 years ago in R.A. Salvatoreâ€™s classic first novel, The Crystal Shard. Over the course of these years and 16 novels â€” all of which were New York Times bestsellers â€” readers have practically grown up with Drizzt as theyâ€™ve watched him mature.
That’s right. Drizzt has been around for 20 years. I still can’t believe it.
