It's on my pile of books to read, most people I've talked to who have read them liked them but truthfully aside from some short stories it is pretty much all we have in the way of novels.

I also haven't read them, though I should. I wonder if I can get them on audiobooks....

Anyhow, I've heard path of the incubus is good.

Sadly no audiobooks to be had. I do a lot of driving, so that'd be a perfect way for me to take in some DE audiobooks.

If you get the Path of the Dark Eldar (Omnibus) it contains all 3 of the short stories (The Treasures of Biel-Tanigh, Murder on the Street of Knives and Bellathonis and the Shadow King) at the appropriate place in the timeline of the main novels (Path of the Renegade, Path of the Incubus and Path of the Archon). I don't know if they are included in the separate novels. Honestly i think the Bellathonis story should have been at the beginning, but it keeps you reading hoping more information will be revealed.

I thoroughly enjoyed all the short stories as well as the Path of the Renegade and Incubus. I just started Path of the Archon last night, first chapter was good and want to keep reading. There was 1 slow spot somewhere in there where i put the book down for a week or so but once your through it your hooked to the end. I love all of the characters in it, the story, how they behave and interact. Andy does an amazing job of bringing Dark Eldar society to life.

Also don't forget about The Torturers Tale! While its no longer cannon it is an awesome story and captures the essence of Dark Eldar perfectly. (This was put out by GW long ago but they removed it from their site as the fluff evolved, you'll notice some of the facts no longer make sense.)

Yeah, the DE trilogy are the only thing we have. But I think what we don't have in quantity, we make up in quality. I found all 3 books to have very strong and colourful characters, as well as an intriguing overall story arc.

Personally, I found path of the Incubi a bit weak on the story, but it really shines in terms of characters. Best of all is that the novels basically cover all of Commorragh. Cults, Kabals, Covens, Incubi, the difference between high- and low-Commorragh and even the shadow realm of the Mandrakes.

Apart from that, I've also heard that there were some excellent fan stories, one that is said to be good is the following: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10323932/1/Ilmaea-A-Novel-of-the-Dark-Eldar
However, I haven't read it by myself, yet.
