    "At long last, New York Times bestselling author R.A. Salvatore returns with one of fantasy's most beloved and enduring icons, the dark elf Drizzt Do'Urden, in an all-new trilogy full of swordplay, danger, and imaginative thrills.

    Centuries ago, in the city of Menzoberranzan, the City of Spiders, the City of Drow, nestled deep in the unmerciful Underdark of Toril, a young weapon master earned a reputation far above his station or that of his poor house.

    The greater nobles watched him, and one matron, in particular, decided to take him as her own. She connived with rival great houses to secure her prize, but that prize was caught for her by another, who came to quite enjoy the weapon master.

    This was the beginning of the friendship between Zaknafein and Jarlaxle, and the coupling of Matron Malice and the weapon master who would sire Drizzt Do'Urden.

    R.A. Salvatore reveals the Underdark anew through the eyes of Zaknafein and Jarlaxle - an introduction to the darkness that offers a fresh view of the opportunities to be found in the shadows and an intriguing prelude to the intriguing escapes that lie ahead in the modern-day Forgotten Realms. Here, a father and his son are reunited and embark on adventures that parallel the trials of centuries long past as the friends of old are joined by Drizzt, Hero of the North, trained by Grandmaster Kane in the ways of the monk.

    But the scourge of the dangerous Lolth's ambitions remain, and demons have been foisted on the unwitting of the surface. The resulting chaos and war will prove to be the greatest challenge for all three."

    Thanks to Matt Adler for the scoop!

    While plot details have since been removed from that site at Salvatore's request, I grabbed a screenshot:

    The URL for Harper Voyager's page also confirms this is indeed a new Drizzt book, the first in 2 years, after previous publisher Wizards of the Coast cancelled their in-house novel line.

      Maybe to keep you from scooping the official announcement made today any more than you already have?

      Officially announced on Twitter by WotC a few minutes ago, along with this link about it:

      The thing I want to know is will it just be for the Drizzt novels or will there be other FR novels?

      They are probably waiting to see how the Drizzt book does. Probably the best way to get more novels is to write to the publisher with proof that you preordered this book, and name ONE author and/or Realms character you would like to see them add. Any more than one author/character and it will get lost as noise.

      I wonder if we are going to see some old school Menzoberanzan, only seven more months to find out.
