Thats a good series though admittedly I only read the last book. However you would enjoy it more is you have read the Fountainhead as it draws heavily from that novel.

Did you like Whisper of Waves and Lies of Light? Devorast and Phyrea annoyed me to death, so did the very unoriginal Ayn Rand musings, the unremarkable plot, and a whole of bunch of characters that Marek Rymut should have incinerated. Needless to say, I didn't bother reading Book 3.

I thought books 1 & 2 were ok. I mostly enjoyed the setting since we don't get many Realms books set in and around the Lake of Steam

Started The Spectral Blaze, gotta finish it and The Masked Witches and get ready for The Prophet of the Dead. Mr Byers is an amazing author, the Realms never felt so alive (except for Mr. Kemp's novels =))!

Agreed. I have read over 200 Realms books and I didn't think any of them were truly amazing, but I have enjoyed MOST of them. It's hard for me to have my socks blown off by a 300 page book.

Well, you can read all three 300-plus-page books in a trilogy in one sitting. That would make you feel like reading a thousand-page novel.

On a somewhat related note: I've noticed that I can read Realms books at 2-3 times faster than non-Realms books. I just started Scream of Stone last night and I'm halfway through now and will easily finish it by tonight.

Well I could only find the third book at my local bookstore and was too impatient to look around in other places so I just bought , read it , enjoyed it and kind of lost interest.

It is hard to find a reasonably priced Watercourse Trilogy. I found a mint set at a local used bookstore and sold it on ebay for $40!

I bought mine (just books 1 and 2) at 50% discount years ago (together with Frostfell). I couldn't forget because those two are the only Realms novels I bought that had discount.

Finished Shadowbane, what a MASTERPIECE! Really, reading Prince of Ravens and then Shadowbane is like starting to love 4e!

Anyways, congrats to Erik Scott de Bie for this great great novel! Already purchased Shadowbane: Eye of Justice and hope it turns out as good as this one.

The existence of the thread "What are you reading?" often makes me forget about this one.

Anyway, I finished reading Prophet of the Dead sometime this month. As expected from Richard, always, a fantastic book!

I now ordered them from amazon and I have to say I am a little angry that they have a different size than normal FR paperbacks and also lack the FR logo on their spine.

Like me. I only count the parts of a series that are FR novels

Hm, wasn't aware of that one. Also not in my count

Originally posted by lordduckAlso, the site o-love still lists the book Best of the Realms, Book IV, The, R. A. Salvatore (January 2011). That book hasn't come out under that name but rather as The Collected Stories: The Legend of Drizzt.
Indeed, took me some time to figure that out.

That's why I was missing them at first, later added them after seeing them in the ebook only thread here at the boards.

Ok here's my end number, it contains the anthologies (including Untold Adventures since there are 3-4 FR stories in it). It contains only the 2 FR books of the Abyssal Plague, only the 2 FR books of the Mysteries Trilogy as well as only the 2 FR books in the Lost Gods Trilogy. It will only contain books and ebooks that have been released up to today. I did not count those that have been announced but not released.

I'm at 272.
Well, mine has the non-released books, but not untold adventures. I need to check if that's the 3 book difference.


Maybe we could upload our lists somewere to compare. I have mine as a handy excel-file
