The Stowaway:





With The Shadowmask, young readers can join long-time Salvatore fans in following the story of twelve-year-old Maimun, first introduced in The Stowaway, Book 1 in the series. Maimun seeks to recover a magic stone, and along the way must battle a demon with a flaming sword, narrowly escape death in the desert and at sea, and triumph over a bronze dragon. Both Drizzt and Maimun are also found in R.A. Salvatore’s recent adult novel, The Pirate King (Wizards of the Coast).
