5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant
This is a great book - indeed, a great series of books. The adventure of Liriel is as, if not more than, interesting and exciting than Drizzt's adventures. It delves more into drow psychology, shows more of the post-war decadence and decay and shows power struggles in the drow society. This book covers no less than 3 drow religions (in case you were wondering about other...

3.0 out of 5 stars Descriptive with jerky plot
Daughter of the drow is a spin off of the darkelf books by RA Salvatore. It incorporates some of the characters and locations in the origional books but never manages to give a true feel to the world of the dark elves. The main reason for this is the instability of the plot. In the dark elf books Menzoberanzan is very much a self contained city that has little to do...

This is a great book - indeed, a great series of books. The adventure of Liriel is as, if not more than, interesting and exciting than Drizzt's adventures. It delves more into drow psychology, shows more of the post-war decadence and decay and shows power struggles in the drow society. This book covers no less than 3 drow religions (in case you were wondering about other drow gods), as well as being a form of light introduction to rune magic.
All in all, a great book and a must read for Salvatore fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent- ranks along Salvatore as far as I'm concerned, 15 Aug 2000
By A Customer
This book is brilliant. The characters are full of life and the plot twists are excellent. I'm off to buy more of Elaine's books! Anyone who is fascinated by the Drow should read this and love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars exciting and deliciously intriguing - this book has it all, 11 Aug 1999
By A Customer
For all lovers of Menzoberranzan's intrigue, and for all those who like mages this book is a must read. Liriel Baenre is a beutifully fleshed out character whose chaotic ways will make you fall in love with her. The novel also provides a lot of infomation about the political state of Menzoberranzan for any who want to know how what happened after the war (in Siege of Darkness).

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Daughter of the drow is a spin off of the darkelf books by RA Salvatore. It incorporates some of the characters and locations in the origional books but never manages to give a true feel to the world of the dark elves. The main reason for this is the instability of the plot. In the dark elf books Menzoberanzan is very much a self contained city that has little to do with it's neighbours and Drittz is one of the first drow that ventures to the surface. In Elenes book whole communities of dark elves can be found on the surface and merchant drow regularly traid and raid there. Also the characters seem blown out of proportion. We have a friendly drow wizard who's never killed before who get's turned into an imortal lich. We have an ordinary female drow rothe herder who's converted into the most powerful female ever and who serves two gods simultaneously. It's all abit ill conceived and far fetched. Despite the plot weakness, the book is descriptive and leaves room for a sequel. In summary, it's not a bad book, just no where near as good as Salvatore.
