"The Dark Elf Trilogy" was the second series that R.A. Salvatore wrote. However, it should be read before his first because "The Dark Elf Trilogy" is based before. This trilogy deals with the early days of the noble dark elf Drizzt Do'Urden from his birth to his rebelious leave from the Underdark and his introduction to the Surface. Drizzt Do'Urden is raised in the evil world of the Dark Elves but as he gets older and is trained by his father Zaknafein, he realizes he must rebel and attempts to leave the Underdark. However, the Matron Mothers of Menzoberranzan are not easy to forgive and try desperately to sacrifice Drizzt Do'Urden to their evil goddes Lloth. Drizzt meanwhile knows that he cannot live in the Underdark forever and ascends for the surface.
On the surface Drizzt finds his share of new friends, new adventures, and adversity of the likes he has never faced before...
"The Icewind Dale Trilogy" is the first series that R.A. Salvatore wrote. This series is what made Salvatore famous. The trilogy is about the adventures of Drizzt and his band of friends including Bruenor the dwarf, Catti-Brie the human, Wulfgar the barbarian, and Regis the halfling. The first book is about the barbarian Wulfgar whom Drizzt is eventually asked to train. Eventually Drizzt trains the lad and the band of friends embark on a perilous adventure. In the second book, the band of friends search for the long lost Mithral Hall that the dwarfs used to live in, and in the third book the band must battle a powerful assasin to save their halfling friend. This is the series that made Salvatore famous.
"The Legacy Of The Drow" is the series that deals with the four books after the Icewind Dale Trilogy. The books involved are "The Legacy", "Starless Night", "Siege Of Darkness", and "Passage To Dawn". Of course it is much cheaper just to buy it in the Collector's Edition above.
