    Who was it from Fantasy Vault that was listing all those FR books? Was it Gavaha? Is he still around?

    I'm looking to buy the three (of is it more than three?) books that centre on the awesomely cool drow Drizzt Do'Urden, but I've forgotten the names of the books. I know they're by R.A. Salvatore...

    Hey, I'm still here, don't worry ;)
    I would recommend starting with the Dark Elf Trilology, then after that, go in order (Icewind Dale Triology....)

    Glad to see a fan or soon to be fan of Drizzt, you'll absolutly love his Panther, Ghuenevar

    I came upon the Dark Elf trilogy by mistake and glad I did.
    Drizzt is awesome.

    Winterine... book one is called Homeland
    book two is called Exile
    book three is called Sojourn


    Gavaha... thanks for the Ice Wind Dale tril idea, do you have the exact names of the three books? It makes it easier for my ma and pop book store to find them. Thanks in advance.

    I just started reading Servant of the Shard. I didn't realize I was starting in the middle of a series.

    So far I am a little disapointed.

    Turin, I would reccomend starting at The Dark Elf Triology, then Icewind Dale, then Legacy, then paths of Darkness, then Cleric Quintet, and to who ever else is starting this large number of series

    You haven't read it Winterine. It's by RA Salvatore.
