I'm up to date with FR novels (read the entire Sundering series).

While I'm waiting for the sequel to Night of the Hunter, I'm re-reading Evermeet.

Elaine Cunningham is such a great writer. I wish she would write more.....

Halfway through The Companions, with Night of the Hunter in the queue. I'm noticing that Companions is flowing a whole lot more nicely than The Last Threshold did, and I'm really digging that. It took me a long, long time to get through Threshold. (Maybe I was just subconsciously dragging my feet because I already had had the ending spoiled for me, and I was avoiding it?)

No matter how much I tried, I couldn't get through WS (managed to get through AB listening to her because the story was so good). The narrator on Audible just didn't do it for me. If I have time to read it (without listening), I'll try and restart.

The Wyvern's Spur is a fun book, but it's really something of a standalone, in the series. It does do some setup for the third book, but it stands alone quite well -- and I've in fact read it, by itself, before, because I enjoy it that much.

I'm about 10 years behind, but it sounds like some folks are reading "the classics" so I guess I'm not too far behind.

What did you think? On reflection, the Finder's Stone trilogy is my favorite Realms series of all time. I hope you liked it!

I'm almost done with Song of Saurials and i really enjoy it. It is a way to write novels in a duo (Grubb & Novak). I think they give something else to it

17 years of reading Realms books followed by a 10 year hiatus. Now I figure I'll start back at the beginning and just pulled Darkwalker on Moonshea out from the shelves.

Just finished Tangled Webs and starting starting Windwalker.
Also finished listening to The Adversary.
It's like I have two of my five senses getting to drink in great stories!

Can't wait to read the special 'gift' Elaine posted for us all! :0)

I've not read the Haunted Lands trilogy or the Brotherhood of the Griffon books... Are these related? Is one necessary to read before the other?

Perhaps, the first few chapters of The Serpent's Daughter?

Very enjoyable. Her voice is missed in the current novel line-up.

Yes, she is missed. Elaine defines what elves are in the Realms to me. If 5E is as much a success as Wizards claims, I really hope they can get her back on board. She's one of the greats and I'd love to see a new novel lineup for her.
