Elaine Cunningham Hi, Timothy. Bob Salvatore's Drizzt books span a period of nearly 200 years. Drizzt was born in DR 1297 and his latest adventures took place in 1479. The events of Liriel's story, told in the Starlight & Shadows trilogy, take place in 1361. The WotSQ occurred several years after this. Here's a detailed look at the Forgotten Realms chronology:

Timothy High I was wondering where does starlinght & shadows fit in with r.a. salvatore's dritz's series? Along with war of the spider queen.
