Publisher's Summary

In The Demon Awakens, best-selling author R. A. Salvatore creates an astonishing new world for listeners to explore - and an intrepid hero to lead the way: Elbryan Wynden, who must confront the dark tides of destiny in his epic search for justice and peace....

A great evil has awakened in the land of Corona, a terrible demon determined to spread death and misery. His goblin armies and fearsome giants ravage the settlements of the frontier, and in the small village of Dundallis their merciless attack leaves behind two shattered orphans: Pony and her lifelong friend, the youth Elbryan. Taken in by elves, Elbryan is raised to become a formidable ranger - a fateful role that will lead him into harrowing confrontation.

Meanwhile, on a far-off island, a shower of gemstones will fall onto the black-sand shores. These heaven-sent stones carry within them an incredible power - the key to all that is good in the world and all that is evil, and it is up to one young monk to liberate them from the corrupt monastery that harvests them. Pray that they don't fall into the wrong clawed hands....

    "Really great intro to R.A."

    I really enjoyed this book, I started homeland but couldn't get into it. This one had me from the start & I'll be checking out book 2 along with other RA Salvatore books. Also Tim Gérard Reynolds was amazing as always. .. "Ohhho What!?" is stuck in my head, love it!

    "Action packed, well written, expertly read"

    I absolutely loved the story and am ready to start on the second book. Tim Gerard Reynolds was the main reason I took the plunge but was rewarded with a wonderful story filled with very well developed characters (good and evil) and well paced parallel sub plots and storylines. Salvatore does a great job bringing these characters together as the separate storylines converge. One notable feature of this story that is not typical with many trilogies that I've read is that it does not spend an inordinate amount of time laying a foundation before getting into the story.

    The main characters are noble if not flawed, sacrifice much as the story progresses, and in some cases perform the impossible. All in all, a great start to the DemonWars trilogy. If you enjoy Tim Gerard Reynolds, you will especially enjoy his performance in this book. Kudos to Salvatore for a well written epic fantasy.

    "A well written and expertly narrated fantasy"

    Here we pit a motley crew of Hero, Heroin, Priestly Monk, a carnivorous centaur and a bunch of impish elves against an inhuman primal evil and his pitiless army of goblins, dwarfs and giants who are hell-bent to vanquish every human to the last living soul.

    What follows is actually a fairly entertaining story.
