A Dark Elf Series That Will Consume You...

I've always loved the stories of Drizzt the dark elf, and while my heart longs for the Salvatore's Safehold, the very first Drizzt novel in the trilogy, I have to say that I truly enjoyed this series of novels that came out later, due to their rich defining shorelines and Byers love affair with the dark elf universe. Be warned: This series will connect you to a great line of audiobooks that have just been released at Audible, some 200 such books in the Forgotten Realms in the Dungeon and Dragons family of books. Some of these books are so very good listening, that you'll want more.

This is such a series in that family.

It's dark. It's Machiavellian. It's descriptive and delightful. Its got great characters, dark purposes, vast family houses in turmoil, royal intrigues and forbidden magics. It is, in a word, magnetic. I enjoyed this long ago, and again today. So much so, that the entire series is now in my Audible library.

So, if you do NOT want such engrossing and entertaining listening, move along.

Otherwise, enter the dark elf kingdom of Menzoberranzan, mortal, and be satisfied with its dark gifts!

Very Satisfying Book About Drow Society

I recently listened to the first trilogy about Drizzt Do' Urden. I really enjoyed the books but by the third book I missed the setting of the Underdark and Drow society. So I was excited when I discovered this set of books. I was taken back into the Underdark and backstabbing Drow society, the narration is great and the storyline is satisfying and easy enough to follow. I am just finishing the second book now and I think I'll end up making it through the whole series.
