A good product about the elves of the Forgotten Realms. However, if you want information about the elves, get Complete Book of Elves first, as that is the BEST regarding their information!

This is THE book to get for information about the elves on the Forgotten Realms. The reason this source book did not get a five star is that they kind of cheated within the source itself. For a lot of the information, they said that we could look up the information in other products (this especially the case for kits!) They give a one paragraph description, and we learn that the rest of the information can be obtained from another source. They also did this with some creatures (like Baelnorns, which are originally found in Ruins of Myth Drannor).

However, that does not mean that this product is not good on its own. Being the second of my Forgotten Realms products, I got along just fine without some of the information. It does well in describing Evermeet, the lifestyle, the major differences between the various subraces of elves (except for the drow!) They introduced new creatures, two of them (for me at least) being VERY intersting (including the lythari - the lycanthrope elves; and the elves that come back from Avador to help the "mortal" elves!). Don't expect any adventures from this product.

If you're interested in elves, and the Forgotten Realms setting, then I recommend this source book. But if you don't like those source books that mention that most of the information can be found in other source books (especially Player Supplements), then this is a warning, that this source book has that!!
