The Legend of Drizzt

Set in Dungeons & Dragons' popular Forgotten Realms campaign setting, R.A. Salvatore's The Legend of Drizzt follows dark elf Drizzt Do'Urden from his humble beginnings as an outcast to his later years as a legendary hero. Drizzt's story begins in the tunnels of the Underdark, where priestesses rule drow society in the name of the goddess Lolth. Though Drizzt becomes a formidable fighter, his strict sense of right and wrong make him an outsider in a society without morals. Eventually exiled from his home, Drizzt climbs up from the depths of the Underdark to lead a new life on the surface of Faerûn. It is there that Drizzt meets allies who will become steadfast friends: dwarf clan leader Bruenor Battlehammer, barbarian Wulfgar, halfling Regis, and a human woman named Catti-brie. Together, they venture throughout the Realms to preserve the peace, fighting against vengeful goddesses, corrupt wizards, and fearsome monsters in the name of justice.

The War of the Spider Queen

The subterranean drow city of Menzoberranzan is in chaos. The Silence of Lolth has descended, leaving the priestesses' without their magical abilities—and effectively cutting off the city's main source of power. While their world changes around them, four dark elves must uncover the meaning behind Lolth's silence: Where has she gone and why is she refusing to answer her followers' calls? Will she return as something greater than before, or has she abandoned her drow children forever? The answers to these questions will not only determine the future of the Underdark but of the dark elf race itself. The War of the Spider Queen is a New York Times–bestselling Dungeons & Dragons epic from the fertile imaginations of R.A. Salvatore and some of the most exciting names in fantasy. Join them as they peel back the surface of the richest fantasy world ever created to show the dark heart that lies beneath.
