A Review of The Companions: The Sundering, Book I by R.A. Salvatore

The Companions- The Sundering, Book I The Companions: The Sundering, Book I
by R.A. Salvatore

This book begins as four former companions, Bruenor Battlehammer, Regis, Wulfgar, and Catti-brie, who have been raised from the dead, meet in Iruladoon and are told that they have a mission to perform. They are reborn, as a gift from the Godess Mielikki, not a gift for them, but as a gift for Drizzt Do’Urden. They have a choice, they can accept life, starting over, as a newborn infant, or they can go back to their graves, and take their place in the afterlife with their ancestors nearby. If they choose life, they must accept one condition, to act on the side of Mielikki in the darkest hour, to come to the aid of Drizzt at the time of The Sundering. They will meet in Icewind Dale in 21 years, at the spring equinox, The Night of Mielikki.

Cattie-brie, the Magic User and Regi, the Halfling commit to being reborn and Bruenor, the Dwarf, reluctantly agrees, but Wulfgar says that he can’t go through that again. He must go to Warriors Rest, where his wife and children await. They separate. Three companions to become newborn infants, to go through the childhoods that await them, to meet in Icewind Dale on the eve of the spring equinox of 1484 DR, The Year of the Awaked Sleepers.

This book, Book 1 of The Sundering, covers their lives from young children, through early adulthood, the adventures they have, the perils they must survive, and the enemies they defeat, on the way to Icewind Dale. Book 2, The Godborn by Paul S. Kemp, will be published in October, 2013, followed by another book, by a different author, in the series every 2 months until the final book is published in June 2014. There will be a total of 6 books by 6 different authors in The Sundering series.

The filmmakers?

No, I doubt it. We did a single post, got something like 80 responses, hardly any actual resumes, and pulled the post and that was that.
I wasn't reading then- was that the folks who were all "we need a DP we don't pay and we start shooting day after tomorrow" ? I actually wrote to that person. They said they had something like 4 projects lined up, right?
Dude, pay your DP and give them enough time to see the locations, read the scripts, etc. I mean, THAT IS YOUR DP!
We were fliming outside Los Angeles, and I really don't mean to sound bitter or like I think I poop celluloid

Buy Syd Field's Screenplay.

Read it several times. Then start reading well regarded scripts. Take the list that have been nominated for Oscar's the past several years and go to Drew's Script-O-Rama online. You need to know what the basics of a script are (Syd ) and then you need to know what a great script reads like.
Having a great idea for a film and being able to write a great script are 2 different things. Your best bet is to save up a few 1000 dollars and hire an experienced screenwriter to write it on the side. $5k will get you someone with real experience. $10k will get you someone with real experience who will turn it around in 8 weeks

Of DH and Screenplays

DH, with reference to the thread below and some of your previous out of the blue lectures on screenwriting, I have one simple request from you. Stop informing the people on this board how to write a screenplay. More than half of what you spew is 100% wrong -- you will discover this when you get in the trenches. Your film school education has taught you only about one-tenth of what you need to know.
I just sold a screenplay after a drought period (go to and then to current projects) and you know what helped me to sell the property? I rewrote the story to tell it from a visual angle, certainly not with the plethora of shots that you essay below as inappropriate (they are) but certainly not with the minimal INT
