    "Another great book by Mr. RA"

    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.

    "Awesome book and perfectly narrated!"
    Would you listen to The Ghost King again? Why?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Ghost King?

    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.


    What does Mark Bramhall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Good story but grab the kleenex"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes because I am a great admirer of RA Salvatore's writing and the narrator was very talented.


    What other book might you compare The Ghost King to and why?

    Pirate King because it is the sequel to the Orc King.


    Have you listened to any of Mark Bramhall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    It's the same guy.


    Any additional comments?

    Great work from both author and narrator.

    PS my husband listened to these books not me. He is the fan of RA Salvatore.

    "Orc King = good; Ghost King = great"

    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.

    "Dead Dragons and a hoard of vile monsters!"

    Thrilling tale of very dark fantasy - almost horror - in a fantasy setting. Dead Dragons, monsters, and magical wizards and warriors standing aganist them.
