A rare set of prequels that are actually worth reading,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Legend of Drizzt: Set 1, Bks. 1-3 (Forgotten Realms) (Forgotten Realms: The Legend of Drizzt) (Mass Market Paperback)
I came late to the Drizzt Do'Urden books and as a result I ended up reading these books first. I loved them and they got me instantly hooked with both the characters and the series and so I kept reading from there.
Chronologically (in terms of the series time line) the next books were the Ice Wind Dale trilogy, but that trilogy had actually been written first and the drop in quality is noticeable. They are still good books but they were not up to the standard of this set which are wonderfully written and I am glad that the author came back to write these rather than started with them as Drizzt deserves this kind of well written intro that can only be achieved by a more experienced R.A. Salvatore.
This trilogy is nicely packaged in this box set and looks really good on the shelf. The books themselves are well made with little cracking on the spines even after they have been passed around my extended family (the fantasy lovers anyway).
Overall this is an excellent set of books and a nice box set that looks good on your shelf or could make a nice gift for someone.
