The Forgotten Realms

Already at twelve, Maimun has been twice lucky.

He's survived the death of his parents at the hands of raiders which razed their village, and the burning of the forest where he lived with his guardian. Each time someone has come and saved him -- and only him -- alive.

Maybe it's not so lucky to be living when everything and everyone he knows keeps getting stripped from him.

Maimun has just lost his most recent guardian -- and Perrault was like a father to him. But at least now he knows why trouble seems to follow him like a deep black shadow. He's in possession of a stone which something wants to possess at any cost. If only Perrault had lived long enough to tell him why...

The Stowaway is the fast-paced first volume in a father-son series written by R.A. and Geno Salvatore. If you're not familiar with The Forgotten Realms series, don't worry, this is a completely new story in and of itself, and is designed to introduce younger readers to the realm. See Charlotte's interview with the authors here, and read a sample chapter here.

Buy THE STOWAWAY from an independent bookstore near you!

Oh man, it's been about a million years since I read a Forgotten Realms book.
