Grant Nelson, Staff Writer

A book series that any nerd will love is “The Legend of Drizzt” books by R.A. Salvatore. The 38 books in the series follow the life and adventures of the dark elf renegade ranger Drizzt Do’Urden and his companions over the course of more than 100 years as they battle evil hordes of orks, dragons and the invading armies of dark elves.  

These books are filled with massive battles between the armies of free peoples such as dwarfs and barbarian tribes who fight everything from demons to hordes of other monsters.  

The series is action packed, filled with deep philosophical quandries from Drizzt and great characters.  

Readers will follow Drizzt’s friends and romantic partners, all of whom he out-lives because he is cursed by his long elven life. The books take the readers across the Forgotten Realms and display the many cultures and nations of this setting and its histories.  

Anyone who enjoys reading about high magic should give this book series a shot.
