Author: R.A. Salvatore and Geno Salvatore

Best-selling author R.A. Salvatore and his son Geno have teamed up to write a brand-new fantasy novel, set in the Forgotten Realms! We have the review of this exciting new book!

Ahoy Mateys!

Maimun is only a teenager, but he is already marked for death because of the dark secrets he possesses. While all those near and dear to him have been killed, the young orphan has been spared so far, thanks in part to a stone that seems to help him escape from trouble.

Yo Ho Ho!

Maimun meets a mysterious stranger who helps him stow away on a pirate hunting ship called the Sea Sprite. On the ship, he makes an unlikely friend in the dark elf, Drizzt Do'Urden, which is good news for this stowaway -- with a half-demon determined to destroy him and a crew of sailors resentful of him, Maimun is going to need all the friends he can get!


Yarrr!

occupants of the Sea Sprite make their way through the Sea of Swords, doping battle with pirates and the agents of the dreaded Asbeel. Meanwhile, Maimun must come to terms with the secret that burdens him and discover the true meaning of family.


The Bottom Line

The Stowaway is an exciting new tale from R.A. Salvatore, compete with his famously pulse-quickening action scenes and, of course, lots and lots of swordplay. Fans of all things Forgotten Realms will not be disappointed and newbies to this world will be hooked! If you're a fan of fantasy fiction, this book is not to be missed!

Pope, in the third Epistle (or chapter, if you will,) argues that man is no more entitled to anything than anything else."I feel like C. S. Lewis wrote this.  Truly, I'm flattered. :O "AlphaT" wrote:But in all seriousness, I feel like I've heard something like this recently. It was about man's relationship to himself under methodological naturalism...which is quite like what you're talking about. In fact, I think it had something to do with Alexander Pope. Anyway, it's true that man is no more entitled to anything than anything else...if one of three conditions are not met: 1. Inherent entitlement2. Achieved entitlement3. Represenative entitlementI don't think there are any good arguments for the first two, but as representatives of the Creator on Earth, we have a right to a certain dominion. This, however, also comes with our own responsibility to the Earth.  I think you're right, I arrived at the same conclusion. Pope seems to be disregarding man's ordained role as manager of earth, as recorded in Genesis. Although, perhaps one could draw from his argument that we tend to abuse our privileged position. Taking more than we ought from the environment in a destructive manner, and offering little in return. We then justify our tyranny by proclaiming our representative entitlement to earth's resources, not knowing how good managers ought to perform. It's an interesting read, whatever you take from it.

The good news is that I got a driver's license out of the deal (: Tuesday at the latest.  Congrats on the license! How hard is the driving test in your state? In FL you have to have to get at least a 90% to pass. (Of course I got it on my first try. :D) And take your time. I spend little time online these days so a longer wait won't bother me much.
