Publisher's Summary

Drizzt returns to Luskan, and the Realms will never be the same!

The Arcane Brotherhood has long held the city of Luskan in their power, but when corruption eats away at their ranks, Captain Deudermont comes to the rescue of a city that has become a safe haven for the Sword Coast's most dangerous pirates. But rescuing a city from itself may not be as easy as Deudermont thinks, and when Drizzt can't talk him out of it, he'll be forced to help.

Drizzt is back in action again, and bringing more changes to the Forgotten Realms setting. This all new adventure will keep Drizzt fans guessing the whole way, with edge-of-your-seat action and plot twists that even the most casual reader of the Forgotten Realms novel line can't afford to miss!

    "Horrible Narration"
    What would have made The Pirate King better?

    Please have Victor Bevine re-read this book so that it may be properly enjoyed. The current narrator is horrific! Grating on the ears, cadence and pronunciation is atrocious! I feel cheated.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    When you have Victor re-read.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Victor Bevine. Enough said

    "Story over-run by rambling contemplation of navel!"
    Has The Pirate King turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I like the proposition of the story in this book and the series. Unfortunately, the actually story is over-run with hypothesizing and thought bubbles as the characters "consider" and "contemplate" the meaning of the universe. The author wastes hours between otherwise exciting story-segments seemingly to make this book long enough to sell to the publisher.

    "Narrator's Count"
    If you could sum up The Pirate King in three words, what would they be?

    Very awesome story!!


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

    There is no comparison for Drizzt except other Drizzt books!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mark Bramhall?

    Victor Bevine


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Several places throughout the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I love these books and was looking very forward to hearing the Pirate King, but when I started listening, I was floored by this narrator. He may be a good narrator in another kind of book but he does not even pronounce the words correctly. I am having trouble concentrating on the book because of his way of narrating. I have read the book and I know that it is a fantastic story but this narrator is ruining it!!!

    "Fantasy adventure from the master"
    Where does The Pirate King rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 10%.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Good writing coupled with good narration equals good listening experience.


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

    He has a great voice and his characterization brings depth to an already good story.


    Any additional comments?

    First audiobook with this narrator was a good experience. Would listen to more of his work.

    "D &b D & PIRATES! Dig it!"
    Would you listen to The Pirate King again? Why?

    Yes, I have...and I do... cause it's a good tale.


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

    Orc King. On Stranger Tides (best Pirate book written !)


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

    darned good!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was excited, and impressed by the suspense, action, and detail.


    Any additional comments?

    R. A. Salvatore is a very good writer. He does make me mad, because he makes me care for his characters so much I hate it when they get into bad situations...but there would be no story unless something bad happened...

    "Excellent"

    Salvatore never diasappoints and once again produced a book I could not put down. Cudos to Mark Bramhall for the excellent delivery.
