#CurrentlyReading The Legend of Drizzt by R.A. Salvatore

So this one is a bit of a departure from what I have been recommending, but it is an excellent series. I have been rereading it (I have read this series about five or eight time). Let me tell you, it is fantastic.

This is a high fantasy trilogy in the Forgotten Realms that has a little of everything. It has action, fantastic battles, subtle emotion, character growth, lots of pain, and one of my favorite heroes to ever grace the page: Drizzt Do'Urden.

My actual first introduction to Drizzt was in The Crystal Shard then I went back and read the trilogy about how he escaped the Underdark. You see Drizzt is a dark elf who isn't much like most of his kindred. It starts with Drizzt being born in the first book Homeland. This book takes us all the way through his education and his ultimate choice to leave Menzoberranzan. The second book Exile is about Drizzt's time in the wilds of the Underdark. The third book is Sojourm is about Drizzt adjusting to the world on the surface where everyone is terrified of him.

Seriously if you enjoy fantasy, even if you have never read high fantasy, give this series a chance and we will chat about it. I love it so much!
