Not necessarily a book I'd pick up to just read, but well worth having around if you plan on sticking with The Legend of Drizzt for the long haul. The maps alone are worth the purchase, they're beautiful and give you a great idea of the scope of Faerun and where different cities sit in relation to the other cities.

Looking for a good recap of the Legend of Drizzt novels? Look no further, A Reader's Guide to the Legend of Drizzt serves as a companion book to the series. Complete with book summaries, character information, a bestiary, and even detailed maps, this compendium of Drizzt information is a great reference guide for any Drizzt reader. Keep in mind that much of the information in this book falls in a timeline somewhere after Sea of Swords and before The Pirate King in the Drizzt timeline.

Fairly recently I decided that I was going to try to get caught up on the Drizzt books. For some reason I had stopped reading them, despite enjoying them quite a bit. I finally got through the Paths of Darkness series, and that gave me leave to read this, since that's what it covers up to. This book is great for anyone that's a fan of the Drizzt series. It gives a brief synopsis of the first 13 books, and is loaded with art and information. It has details about nearly every character major and m ...more

If you have read all of the books up until the most recent then it is a good book to have to refresh your memory of what happened earlier in the series. Also it has nice detailed maps of all the locations of his adventrues along with nice pictures of the characters. And if your new to the series it can help you learn more about the characters and their world. Along with actually following the paths that they take by looking at the maps if you wanted to go that far. Good Gift for a Drizzt fan.

A great encyclopedia of R.A. Salvatore's famous series based on the legend Drizzt Do'Urden. This book contains a very nice collection of information on the characters, places, monsters, and more that are encountered in the novels. There are detailed maps of the cities and illustrations to accompany every creature and character mentioned. I would recommend this book to any fan of Salvatore's novels based in the Forgotten Realms setting. This also serves as a great reminder if I forget who a certa ...more

I spent a cozy afternoon on the couch poring through this book today. Truly a comprehensive collection of information pertaining to Drizzt and his world - his companions and foes, geographic landmarks, town maps and local lore. I found myself smiling over and again as I appreciated a detail here and lavish artwork there. Though many artists contributed, Todd Lockwood, who brings Drizzt to life like no other, has outdone himself in this volume.

A must for fans of Drizzt - it has inspired me to rea
