Azoun IV, in the twilight of his years, is still a shining hero to most of his subjects, and to all but the eldest, the only king they've ever known. He's led them capably out of dark doom before.

Yet Cormyr has never faced so many mighty and mysterious foes at once. Demonic ghazneths, ancient curses, weird trees of foul magic, goblins and their kin on the rise in the northern wilderlands, a blight upon the land, rebellious mutterings, dying war wizards...and a dragon the likes of which no living eyes on Faerun have ever seen.

The Purple Throne doesn't seem so unassailable now. It could well shatter under the weight of a gigantic dragon--or the secrets and follies of the last of the Obarskyrs.

Why is R. A. Salvatore credited for the Forgotten Realms universe? He may be the most famous of the writers but he is only responsible for creating the Drow society in the universe. The main universe creator is ED Greenwood. But yeah Forgotten Realms deserves to be in this "bad" list because it didn't age well and recent books feel like they are rewrites of earlier books. Nothing changes nobody dies and when a important character really dies they get resurrected by gods and even goods resurrect themselves out of nothingness... Basically nothing that ever happens really matters in this universe because it can be undone. However this universe has a lot of fans that do enjoy reading the same thing over and over, and over again till the end of time...

The dark elf trilogy is a phenomenal series of books. They contain a great character in Drizzt. They tell the story of an entire society in a better way than I've ever found in another series. I think the cleric quintet is a pretty good read as well. Crazy to hate on Salvatore this way.
