It's a great book. If you like the legend of Drizzt. This is all you!
thoroughly wonderful story. I have enjoyed all of the stories that include Drist. the last hours of this book are incredible.
Say something about yourself!
yes, characters and story very good , moved at a good pace, and had interesting tarentino pulp fiction time moves between past and present
Yes and did. Rebooted it up on a long drive with the youngest boy. Was the first time he didn't care about how fast we got there.
I found this story to lack depth. It's like a James Bond movie that's all about gadgets. Huge piggy backing of loved and known characters from RA Salvatore's franchise yet that didn't compensate enough.
Excellent reading performance. Little over the top sometimes but the book IS over the top.
Classic D&D adventure, battling demons and pirates, and even a bit of romance. I enjoyed that the character learned about himself as the story progressed.
I particularly loved Joen - the pirate girl. She had the perfect attitude throughout the story, and it was easy to sympathize with her.
This is the first performance I've heard of Ramon DeOcampo. He did a fantastic job - I really enjoyed listening to his performance. One minor issue was that towards the end most of the adult male voices started sounding quite similar.
Yeah, the ending kind made me upset. Between the last chapter and the epilog, there was a whole additional story to be told. That is not cool.
The editor did a great job on this. I normally hear where they make cuts and auditory edits, but this was really well done on the production end.
I normally never listen/re-read a novel. If anything, I would re-read the Drizzt novel that ties in with Stone of Tymora. The two books are not really related but the characters from both books overlap because they are in the same place at the same time.
Maimun is really the main character and is the one narrating the story (not the literal narrator who is Ramon DeOcampo). He seems easily likable and you can appreciate his situation, etc. He's not some uber warrior or grand wizard.
He did a very nice job. Salvatore usually has very good narrators and DeOcampo delivers. I did not like his accent for the pirates (specifically, the girl). She sounded like a little English girl.
It was... once I started it finished it in three days. Which is not something I normally do but the story started very strong and keeps you engaged. Not something you could forgot that easily.
It had been a while since I read some of Salvatore's work (Finder's Series and Erevis Cale Trilogies). He is a very nice writer and while breaks are needed the story was tight and I appreciated that you can really trust Salvatore that it will be a quality read/listen.
On a side note... I just didn't feel the connection between the two main characters.
This is a kids story, Audible failed to mark it as so. I purchased it because it said it was a science fiction story. now I am left wondering if all of R. A. Salvatore books are kids books or if all of the forgotten realm books or kids books.
Again Very disappointing!
