Welcome to the Forgotten Realms Endless Quest books, where you don't just read a fantastic tale. You become the hero -- and choose your own fate. 

When you tried to pick the pocket of a civilar in the night-shrouded streets of Waterdeep, you never thought she'd catch you -- and you never dreamed she'd force you into her service. Now you must find the baby griffon stolen by the beholder Xanathar, leader of the city's powerful Thieves' Guild. And if you should fail . . . you can count on spending the rest of your life behind bars, rogue.

Welcome to the Forgotten Realms Endless Quest books, where you don't just read a fantastic tale. You become the hero -- and choose your own fate. 

The Harpers have lost one of their own, a legendary adventurer named Artus Cimber, keeper of the artifact known as the Ring of Winter. They've hired you to travel to the jungle-clad land of Chult to find him. If only you can manage to find Cimber before the frost giants do -- or the zombies that infest the land get you first. You're in the jungle now, cleric.

Welcome to the Forgotten Realms Endless Quest books, where you don't just read a fantastic tale. You become the hero -- and choose your own fate. 

You awaken in an underground cell, stripped of your armor and your sword. Your fellow prisoners inform you that you're trapped in the Underdark, soon to be taken to the great drowcity of Menzoberranzan and sold off as a slave. But word is that demons are stirring in the underworld's depth. Perhaps you can use that to break free, fighter.

Welcome to the Forgotten Realms Endless Quest books, where you don't just read a fantastic tale. You become the hero -- and choose your own fate. 

When evil giants attack your home in Ardeep Forest, your parents think you're dead and they go hunting for your missing little brother. You wake up and set out after them, helped by a giant wizard who lives in a flying tower. You don't know where they've gone, but you know that if you don't find them, you're all in big trouble. Wield your magic wisely against the giants, wizard.

The only one that I've read is Escape the Underdark, the artwork is really well done and I'm sure that fans of D&D would enjoy these.
