9780006483434: Sword of Bedwyr: Book I of The Crimson Shadow

First volume of a thrilling fantasy adventure from this stylish new author.

Eriador is a land enslaved by the Wizard-King Greensparrow. Luthien Bedwyr, like the rest of the ruling nobles, is blind to the repression, until he’s falsely accused of murder.

As he flees the King’s monstrous avengers, Luthien discovers his nobility earns him few favours, until he’s taken in by the highway-halfling, Oliver deBurrows, and a mysterious mage. Luthien’s exile suddenly turns into a quest to steal a mystical prize from a dragon’s hoard; and his notoriety acts as a rallying cry for freedom fighters.

But Luthien is a reluctant hero, one whose growing powers are even more deadly than the Wizard-King he seeks to destroy…

Review:

‘A fine adventure, filled with memorable characters and compelling action.’
Terry Brooks

‘Salvatore describes and choreographs battle scenes better than any other contemporary fantasist.’
Publishers Weekly

‘I do like Bob Salvatore tremendously. In The Sword of Bedwyr, he give us a world of depth and humanity, filled with color and sound and feeling, with heroes we can’t help but admire.’
New York Times.

From the Back Cover:

For twenty years, the once proud lands of Eriador have lain, conquered and suffering, under the despotic and demonic power of the evil Wizard-King Greensparrow and his legions of monstrous cyclops soldiers. The dwarves and Fairborn elves are slaves; humans fare little better.

Arena fighter Luthien Bedwyr is too young and privileged to understand Greensparrow's oppression. Then one night he seeks justice for a friend's murder, only to find himself a fugitive, pursued by Greensparrow's thugs.

It is a flight that will turn into grand adventure, a magical odyssey full of sorcery and danger as he embarks upon a quest to free the masses from the excesses of Greensparrow's henchmen, thereby becoming a legendary hero…

"Bob Salvatore is a writer to watch"
TERRY BROOKS

"A world of depth and humanity, filled with colour and sound"
TRACY HICKMAN
