Forgotten Realms: The Library

Other titles



The word brings to mind magic and dragons. Unthinkable energy. Magical energy that a simple scullery maid can't possibly control. Shandril of Highmoon, an orphaned girl, is bored. Her solution: run away, in search of adventure.

What Shandril doesn't know is that her whimsical action will take her to the grotto of the most feared creature in the Realms, ... or that the only magic strong enough to defeat the unspeakable evil surrounding that dracolich must - thanks to the great mage, Elminster - be channeled through her body, ... or that the burden of saving the Forgotten Realms will fall on her slender shoulders.

Shandril of Highmoon finds adventure all right ... and love, and death, and terror.

A hero trapped on the edge of light and dark...

Think this desert's dangerous?

"Knowledge of the sword is useless without knowledge of the world."

Cephas has no memories of how he came to fight in the gladiatorial arena of the floating earthmote called the Island of the Free. All he knows of the world beyond, he has gleaned from stories the master of the games reads to his followers while Cephas waits in his cell for the next opponent.

"You are wise to realize you must trust me. You are wise to find this terrifying."

From a distance Corvus Nightfeather and his Circus of Wonders have watched the Island of the Free, piecing together its weaknesses and its defenses. And watching with interest the young genasi gladiator whose feet have never once touched the earth.

"Now open this book again. Now begin anew. There is more yet in these pages."

For the first time Cephas can harness his inborn powers and control the stones and dirt beneath his feet. But Corvus has plans for Cephas that extend beyond the circus's shows: he knows who Cephas really is and that people are searching for the genasi in brutal Calimport.


A hero rises from the ranks of slaves!

The genasi control almost all of Calimshan for their djinn overlords - all but a few outposts like the floating Island of the Free, where escaped slaves from Calimport's coliseum run their own brutal games. There, Cephas, a genasi with no memories of his past has spent his entire life fighting. But one day a circus of misfits, lead by the crowlike Corvus Nightfeather appear and free Cephas - and for the first time Cephas can harness his inborn powers and control the stones and dirt beneath his feet.



Two angels given mortal flesh are sent to guard two star-crossed lovers, born scions of rival merchant houses. At first, it looks as though love will conquer all, and the rift will finally be mended. But there are those who hate the word peace with a passion so much that it poisons everything they touch, corrupting house to turn against house, mother to turn against child, and angel to turn against angel.


Unbroken Chain: The Darker Road

Out of nightmares and shadows

The witch Ilvani's nightmares of a storm and a suffering soul are luring shadow monsters into the shadar-kai city of Ikemmu, bent on hunting her down and killing her for reasons no one can ascertain.

Into the heart of the storm

Ashok, one of the thrill-seeking shadar-kai imbued with the power of shadow, is determined to find a way to stop it before the shadow monsters destroy the city he worked so hard to save. But the trail leads him and his companions far from Ikkemu and the Shadowfell.

The only thing thicker than darkness is blood

The companions find themselves deep in the frozen kingdom of Rashemen, where similarly strange attacks are happening among the secretive masked witches of the steppes. Picking apart the threads, they chance into a history as bloody and unforgiving as their own, the untangling of which may solve both Ikkemu and Rashemon's plights.

Or prove their mutual destruction


Venom in Her Veins

Child of Prophecy?

Harbinger of Doom?

Zaltys is a girl like any other to grow up ranging the jungles of the Southern Lluirwood. She's a crack shot with a bow and no stranger to the dangers that lurk beneath the deep forest canopy.

On an expedition with her family to harvest the forbidden terazul flower, a powerful drug that has gathered many a dreamer into its narcotic embrace, Zaltys is about to unearth a truth long buried by the feculent loam of deception.

As the veil is listed on the world Zaltys thought she knew, a pathway to the Underdark promises the answers her family never gave. Venturing forth in the search of truth, Zaltys finds betrayal to be a much easier quarry. But it will take more than a lode of lies to quell the venom in her veins.
