    Drizzt joins Bruenor on his quest for the fabled dwarven kingdom of Gauntlgrym: ruins said to be rich with ancient treasure and arcane lore. But before they even get close, another drow and dwarf pair stumbles across it first: Jarlaxle and Athrogate. In their search for treasure and magic, Jarlaxle and Athrogate inadvertently set into motion a catastrophe that could spell disaster for the unsuspecting people of the city of Neverwinter - a catastrophe big enough to lure even Jarlaxle into risking his own coin and skin to stop it.

    For a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights brought peace and order to the Galactic Republic, aided by their connection to the mystical energy field known as the Force. But they were betrayed - and the entire galaxy has paid the price. It is the Age of the Empire. Now Emperor Palpatine, once Chancellor of the Republic and secretly a Sith follower of the dark side of the Force, has brought his own peace and order to the galaxy. Peace through brutal repression, and order through increasing control of his subjects’ lives.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who does not love star wars. Its not that the book is bad. I did some research and Star Wars is making an animated tv show called rebels. This is a book on that series. Im just pissed off with all the great books by Zahn and Traviss or the NJO this is what they want to make a animated series. Its got to be to sell toys or something. Please make the republic commando books by Karen Traviss audiobooks and animated. This book is just the beginning of the end.


    Has A New Dawn: Star Wars turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no. i love it and will always want to read,hear watch more. Its just so much more to focus on and this is what they choose. even the comics have better storyline.


    Which character – as performed by Marc Thompson – was your favorite?

    Marc Thompson is the man enough said.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A New Dawn: Star Wars?

    all of it


    Any additional comments?

    please redo the new jedi order and make them unabridged 19 books will sell a lot of copies.

    It is the time of the great elven city of Cormanthor, when the Heartlands are home to barbarians, wicked dragons rule the skies, and the elven people trust no one. Wizards and warriors alike threaten their civilization in vain, arrogant, and ignorant quests for glory.

    Thus it was that Elminster was guided to Cormanthor, the Towers of Song, where Eltargrim was Coronal. There he dwelt for 12 summers and more, studying with many mighty mages, learning to feel magic and know how it could be bent and directed to his will....

    In ancient days, sorcerers sought to learn the One True Spell that would give them power over all the world and understanding of all magic.... The One True Spell was a woman, and her name was Mystra - and her kisses were wonderful. It is the time before Myth Drannor, when the Heartlands are home to barbarians, and wicked dragons rule the skies. In these ancient days, Elminster is but a shepherd boy, dreaming of adventure and heroics. When a dragon-riding magelord sweeps down upon him, though, the boy is thrust into a world of harsh realities, corrupt rulers, and evil sorcerers.
