Wow, you are in for a treat! Her main characters are particularly memorable & well-rounded.

From the Songs & Swords trilogy: Arilyn & Danilo

From the Starlight and Shadows trilogy: Liriel, Fyodor, Thorn and Sharlarra.

Also, Evermeet is pretty awesome too.


Other novel characters that I'd like to see more of:

Sinnafain & Doum'wielle

Dahlia Sin"felle

Galaeron & Keya Nihmedu, Morgwais & Takari.

Ilsevele Miritar, Fflar & Araevin.

While I disliked 4e, there were some good novels written during that time, such as Shadowbane, Chosen of Nendawen, and Unbroken Chain. All of these novels felt unfinished. Not in the sense of bad writing, but in the sense that the authors had likely planned to write more, but then weren't able to. But I wish they could revisit these stories and characters.

I would like to read more stories from the Uskreven family, the Sembia series was a pleasant surprise. Unlike what I imagined, the best books in the series were from the characters I expected least. I would also like more stories from Galvin, the druid of Red Magic (Jean Rabe, Harper Series) ... I have never seen a druid use powers in such a cool way. Some seamanship stories wouldn't be bad either.

All of Elaine Cunningham's work.

I'd like a thematic sequel to Elves of Evermeet and see the Tree of Life be planted and watch that grow in stories and characters.

I highly enjoyed Odom's trilogy set in Chondath, and would have welcomed more of series like that.

Such as...a trilogy in the Moonsea region!

A whole bunch, mostly from the 1st-2nd Edition days. Tristan, Azoun, and Khelben come to mind, but also more recent "disappearances" like the Simbul of course.

I finished The Ring of Winter recently, it's a shame we don't have more material for Artus Cimber's adventures. I think Lowder's character development work is one of the best.

I would love to go back to Cormanthyr and Myth Drannor (in whatever state it's in) and hear more stories about Ilsevele and Fflar.

I feel this old tweet from Ed:

When I’ve an hour or three
And characters that are worth a second look
Walk and talk with me”
