    I have only read the Icewind Dale trilogy, but I like them pretty well. Would you guys recommend reading the others?

    I would. I just finished reading all of them. But, the Dark Elf Trilogy is definitely the best. :)

    Seconded. I read them all years ago and the fight scenes are still stuck in my head. The one in the Giant cave in tCS (when Drizzt, Wulfgar and Guenwhyvar first fight as a team) is the best IMHO.

    Salvatore surely has a way with fight scenes, especially where Drizzt is involved.

    I just finished the first Dark Elf Trilogy book, which was amazing. After the trilogy, are any of the other series like sequels to it? Or are they just like in the same land but not involving Drizzt?

    Dark elf trilogy, Icewind trilogy, Legacy of the drow, Paths of darkness, Hunters blade trilogy all include Drizzt. (though I haven't read the last two 'series' yet, I haven't gotten my hands on 'em :()

    Yes those are all of the books in the series. While the Cleric quintet does not have Drizzt in it it is still a very good series. I would have to say that I liked the beginning books a little better, but they are all good. Also a new one in this line is The Promise of The Witchking. It comes after Servant of The Shard and features Jarlaxle and Artemis Enteri. I have not read it yet but I am really planning on it.

    "Where is he?" the archer cried again, growing frantic. "Merk, where is he?"
    "Right behind you," came a whisper. A jeweled dagger flashed, slicing the bowstring and then, before the stunned man could begin to react, resting against the front of his throat.
    "Please," the man stammered, trembling so badly that his movements, not Entreri's, caused the first nick from that fine blade. "I have children, yes. Many, many children. Seventeen . . ."
    He ended in a gurgle as Entreri cut him from ear to ear, bringing his foot up against the man's back even as he did, then kicking him facedown to the ground.
    "Then you should have chosen a safer career," Entreri answered, though the man could not hear.


    THIS GUY RULES I TELL YOU.

    lol, obviously by the name I read the Drow books. I love the Drizzt books. I can never decide if I like Drizzt (i keep typing 'drizzy' for some reason....lol) or Entreri better.

    What's the name of the new one that just came out btw? I saw it but I don't remember. It's related to Servant of the Shard. It's King of the Shard or something isn't it?

    He does sound quite cool!... Perhaps I should buy the books in which he is starring!

    Therefore my question. Which books is he a part of? I have only read the fist part of the darkelf trilogy.
