    I would say the Dark Elf trilogy. Home land, Exile, and sojourn. those tell the histroy of Drizzt

    I would agree as well...I started with Icewind Dale first then Dark Elf Trilogy, The Legacy of the Drow, Paths of Darkness and then Hunter's Blades Trilogy.

    Well I would say that you start with Dark elf Trilogy, since if you think about it, it's like the first book... well it wasn't written first but it's the book of Drizzt's birth and evolving. I read the lagacy of the drow first... don't do that. It kinda took awy the joy since you knew what couldn't happen in the books taking place before it. But then again, icewinddale was written first I think, so that would also be a good choice.

    Icewind Dale was the first one I read. It's a good place to start, I think. Introduces some main characters and all but doesn't get really in depth with Mezzobarezan (or whatever it is) and the drow and stuff.

    I played the Icewind Dale game a while back, and really enjoy the fantasy genre.

    I'm curious to know how the Forgotten Realms books rank in comparison to some of my favorites like "A Song of Ice and Fire" and "The Sword of Truth" books.

    Can anyone give me some insight?

    Thanks in advance!
