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!
Don't forget to listen to more adventures of the Forgotten Realms.

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.
When you have Victor re-read.
Victor Bevine. Enough said
Very awesome story!!
There is no comparison for Drizzt except other Drizzt books!
Several places throughout the book.
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!!!
Still miss Victor Bevine *grumbles*. Great book though, one of the best. I don't do spoilers so that's it for my review ;)
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.
drizzt felt like a side character throughout the book. I just couldn't help but think why the hell do I really give a shit about deodermont and luskan? I was glad to be done with this book.
I have read everything Salvatore has published. I love his series'. I love all of them. This book was a bit less than his usual but I still enjoyed the story.
For years those of us who have followed this series have enjoyed learning all about various characters that come and go. It’s always to good to hear about them after some time. Here we meet Captain Deudermont being pushed to help liberate a town from a tyrant. Yet, is this the correct move?
We see the beginning of the undoing of magic in this story, but no one see’s it for what it really is at this point in time. This causes lots of grief for Regis as he doesn’t realise what he’s seeing! We see him struggle with so much in this story and how will this impact him in future stories.
We see Drizzt applying the knowledge he learned from the two moon wood elves, but is he really ready for all those lessons? I really did like this story for all the points here without posting any spoilers. I would like to see the narrator replaced and and someone else re-record this story line.
