However I did not like fair written much closer much closer to drow actual elves. A picture then a little bit more subtle and seductive.
Elfshadow (Forgotten Realms: Songs and Swords, Book 1)
Evermeet: Island of Elves (Forgotten Realms)
The Summoning (Forgotten Realms: Return of the Archwizards, Book 1)
The Siege (Forgotten Realms: Return of the Archwizards, Book 2)
The Sorcerer (Forgotten Realms: Return of the Archwizards)
These books are by Elaine Cunningham and Troy Denning and they are fantastic Forgotten Realms authors. I recommend these books because they are referenced in this book on several occasions. While the references aren't extremely important it is great to really have a handle on some of the events they reference. Also the book does include a host a monsters you may not be familiar with if you don't play D&D so a monsters manual will come in handy when you encounter them so you can get an even better idea of what they look like and can do. Seeing all of the characters and monsters in the game manuals flushed out in books is a personal pleasure of mine with reading fantasy books
Now on to the review. Forsaken House is a really enjoyable and quick read...I blew through it in 3 days. The premise of this series is that the elves of Faerun are under attack by an ancient foe they thought they handled long ago; an ancient house of evil sun elves, who sold their souls to demons for power, called the Dlardrageths. They are referenced as the "Daemon-fey" or "Fey-ri". There is a great deal of action in the book and the story is pretty fast paced. One flaw I have noticed with Richard Baker and his writing in this book is that he doesn't get as descriptive in his battles. He is very general when referring to the spells or powers the Daemon-fey are using in some of the scenes. However the main character he goes into a good amount of detail with the spellcasting. It's a minor issue for me but some people I have talked to that read the book it was a very important point
All and all though the book is great and I enjoyed reading it and I recommend it to all those who haven't read it yet as I believe the events in this series will come up in later Forgotten Realms books
