I remember reading a series of fantasy novels around early 2000. I think the name was the Cartographers Map, the other title was Hunters Moon (Something Moon?) but I've searched of these titles and not found any suitable results.

I remember there was a warrior elf with magic tattoos that glowed blue. I also remember the main villain was an ice queen from the north lands named Chytrine(?).

There were dinosaur-like birds on the evil army's side. There were many different states / countries around a vast lake. There were many different armies and magical groups. It was a very violent series.


This is the DragonCrown War Cycle series of books.

The DragonCrown War Cycle is a four book fantasy series consisting of a prequel, The Dark Glory War, and three main volumes, Fortress Draconis, When Dragons Rage, and The Grand Crusade. The books were written by Michael A. Stackpole and published by Bantam Spectra, a subsidiary of Randomhouse inc. over the course of 4 years from 2000-2003. The books follow a group of heroes as they struggle to bring to fruition the Norrington Prophecy, so that they can defeat the evil Queen of the north, Chytrine, and save the southern kingdoms from destruction.
