A Conversation with R. To say that your recent Star Wars novel, Vector Prime, met with a controversial reception would be something of an understatement. I understand you have even received death threats from fans outraged at the death of Han Solo's sidekick, the Wookiee Chewbacca. Were you prepared for this degree of hostility?
Hire Writer The story begins by taking off from where the previous novel, The Crystal Shard, left off, where Bruenor Battlehammer leads his friends Regis, Drizzt, and Wulfgar on a quest to find his long lost underground kingdom and reclaim the throne and treasures within.
The group finds themselves in mostly high spirits in the beginning of the journey; however, foreshadowing shows that the group is not alone, and is most certainly not protected from evil and watchful eyes.
The group is being followed by the notorious Artemis Entreri, who seeks to capture Regis and return him to his guild master in a land far south.
The group is able to escape after a while, and find themselves leaving the city of Luskan and out on the road to a more helpful location. They travel through the dense and deadly wilderness and battle fierce orcs and barbarians, hoping to reach their destination, the town of Longsaddle.
The dark group easily find themselves in the city of Silverymoon, and prepare to lie in wait for the adventurers to fall into their grasp.
Meanwhile, the heroes of our story had reached Longsaddle and met up with the eccentric wizard family known better as the Harpells. They soon discovered that the sky was the limit for these strange wizards, who constantly flirted with danger and with physical boundaries with their magic.
The disheartened party are then forced to go through the dreaded Trollmoors, home to evil trolls and other denizens of darkness, in order to reach Silverymoon, one of the greatest and well known cities in the realm and known as a city of great tolerance. It takes them days to get through the Trollmoors, and each of them was filled with battle and danger.
The friends are barely able to escape alive. Artemis Entreri and Drizzt do battle for a short period of time, but in that instance discover a deep link to each other.
Each realizes the other person as almost his mirror image, and skill wise the two are equals. It is their morals that seperate them, however. Drizzt and Entreri become seperated from the others after a cave in, and the other groups presume them dead.
Although Bruenor, Wulfgar, and Cattie Brie, who had acquired a legendary bow from one of the treasuries, battled courageously, the dwarven king had to end up sacrificing himself in order to save his children and slay the dragon once and for all. It is during this time that the story ends with Drizzt reuniting with his friends and Artemis Entreri capturing Regis and goading Drizzt into following him south so that they may do battle once again.
Having to save his friend, Drizzt has no choice but to comply. This story has many themes, but one stands out amongst them all: This has disheartened Drizzt on many occasions, and has almost led him to reconsider his decision to forsake his homeland many times.
But his friends, who look beyond his skin and see his true self, always remind him that his choice was a wise one. Choose Type of service.R.A.
