Book 3
As Liriel and Fyodor navigate the surface world to deliver a magical artifact, the drow elves beneath their feet plot revenge
Crossing the wide realms of Faerûn in search of adventure, the dark elf princess Liriel Baenre and her companion Fyodor find themselves in the barbarian’s homeland of Rashemen. They come bearing the Windwalker amulet, though the gift of a magical artifact does not guarantee a warm welcome—especially when it’s carried by a drow elf. In this land ruled by witches, Liriel must disguise herself lest she spark the people’s hatred of dark elves.
Yet from the deep tunnels of the Underdark, eyes glittering with malice are watching her every move, preparing for vengeance. And chief among them is the dark goddess who Liriel still unwittingly serves.
Book 2
Danger and high-seas adventure await Liriel Baenre on the surface in this second installment of the Starlight & Shadows trilogy
Exiled from her home for acquiring the Windwalker amulet, the beautiful dark elf Liriel Baenre wanders to the surface world, accompanied by her companion Fyodor. But even far from the dark haunts of Menzoberranzan, she is not safe from the vengeance of her arch-enemy, fellow drow elf Shakti Hunzrin. As she and her friend sail the dangerous seas of the Sword Coast, the drow priestess plots a terrible fate for them.
Meanwhile, in the dark depths of the earth, the spider queen Lolth weaves her own webs of terror and treachery . . .
Book 1
As beautiful as she is deadly, drow princess Liriel Baenre undertakes a dangerous journey to the surface world—where discerning friend from foe is no easy task
War has passed, and the drow return to Menzoberranzan to face the unthinkable: their armies defeated, their ruling houses shattered, their magic faded in the cruel light of the sun. In the aftermath of war, the dark elves brace themselves for the power struggle to come. Left with no other choice, they will submit themselves to the rule of the matrons and the tyranny of Lolth. Or will they?
Liriel Baenre is a free-spirited drow princess who searches out adventure as passionately as most drow pursue power and status. When she discovers a way to take her heritage of dark elf magic to the surface world of Faerûn, she sets off alone on a hazardous quest. Many want to possess Liriel’s secret—or destroy it. Pursued by enemies from her homeland, Liriel does not receive a warm welcome in the world of light. Her best hope for an ally is Fyodor of Rashemen, a young berserker warrior who may also be her deadliest rival.
