I must start by saying how much I enjoyed this book. I have read all of Salvatore's series and books and was quick to jump on "Transitions" series when saw it on Audible.
I believe that this is Salvatore's darkest adventure for good ol' Drizzt Do'Urden ever. I am still shocked at the outcome. I won't say more as I do not wish to give anything away, but I am still blown away with how it ended.
I truly enjoyed the narrator and have added him to my list "of narrators to look for in the future list". And I hope to see more of the Salvatore line up in the future.
Mark Bramhall is, by far, the best narrator of the Drizzt series. He brings every character to life and makes scenes come alive with his colorful accents.
The final battle against the Ghost King was intense, but the subtle parts with Ivan Bouldershoulder fighting off the mental intrusions of the mind flayer were just as intense for me.
Mark Bramhall can voice act like no other narrator. He's not one to hold back when he has to do a surly dwarf with a scotsman's accent, or a troubled drow that is contemplating the death of a friend. Truly, he is the best I've heard.
I find it hard to listen to the newest Drizzt novels since Mark Bramhall is not the narrator. The characters just lack the depth that he injects into them with his voice. I've resigned to just buying the paperbacks and reading them myself, using Mark Bramhall's accents in my inner monologue.
Yes because I am a great admirer of RA Salvatore's writing and the narrator was very talented.
Pirate King because it is the sequel to the Orc King.
It's the same guy.
Great work from both author and narrator.
PS my husband listened to these books not me. He is the fan of RA Salvatore.
I think it comes more alive when its read aloiud.
The deaths of Catibre and Regis.
Cry when Catty and Regis died.
Mark is a great reader. He keeps you entertained as you listen.
The Pirate King was a little less than I am used to with a Salvotore book. The Orc King though has returned to the masterpiece of science ( fantasy) fiction that I so adore. The Ghost King was fantastic and the best of the Trilogy. Some day he will truel be compared with Tolken.
Me am Pop-Surrealist Tiki-Artist living and making Art on the active volcanic "Big Island" of Hawaii. Aloha.
Thrilling tale of very dark fantasy - almost horror - in a fantasy setting. Dead Dragons, monsters, and magical wizards and warriors standing aganist them.
