Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chad Bustard | 2/13/2014

    " This latest trilogy of books regarding Forgotten Realms and Drizzt Do'urden is a lot darker than some of the others for the remaining members of the group. A surprising ending for sure. I love the books and RA Salvatore does a great job in keeping the novels fresh and exciting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 1/10/2014

    " This book actually really surprised me. Set during the Forgotten Realms 3.5E to 4E transition event of the Spellplague, a number of significant changes occur. It also ties back to much earlier villains in an interesting way, and forms an amusing alliance between four unlikely characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew | 1/4/2014

    " Salvatore begins this story with a prologue, one of which has never been read before. He explains how he must descend to a dark place to write this novel much like he did for another saga he wrote. This novel tells of the beginning threads of the Spellplague. The companions return to Cadderly and assist him in his struggles. Another tragic end haunts the end of this book leaving an empty feeling with the reader. This is such an emotional book for both the characters and the reader but it is without a doubt one of the best novels of his career. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 M | 12/28/2013

    " As far as charecters go...this is a big one. Reflecting back on now a few days....I really enjoyed it and all that happened. If I were to rate it right after I read the last page...I would have gone w/ 4 stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Russ | 12/18/2013

    " While well written, this book didn't really feel like it was particularly going anywhere until the very end. It's sort of back heavy. And really, really back heavy. Things happen in the last 50 pages that will seriously affect any future Forgotten Realms novels that Salvatore writes. So if you start reading this, please be sure to read the whole thing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marc Jerry | 12/10/2013

    " this book is wrong...too many of my favorite characters met their demise "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin Xu | 12/7/2013

    " the most emotional book that i have ever read, cried like a baby for over half a hour when finish with the book, that is way ending should be done! if without that ending, this would be a crap of a book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stephen Payne | 11/19/2013

    " simply put, cadderly deserved better "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 This Is Not The Michael You're Looking For | 3/25/2013

    " A surprisingly strong ending to what has been a bit of a lackluster series, The Ghost King may actually lead to character growth and change (assuming Salvatore continues the long running series). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tony | 11/8/2012

    " Its hard to talk about this book without spoiling it. I would like for this to be the end of the series that has been going for about 20 years. But I think it left enough open story possibilities to continue on. I think it is losing a little bit with each novel and each trilogy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Philip Athans | 5/15/2012

    " No way can any Drizzt fan finish this one with a dry eye! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 4/12/2012

    " Regis and Cattie-Brie will be missed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 6/30/2011

    " felt very sad during this one "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jordan Neal | 6/8/2011

    " R.A. Salvatore proves himself as an extraordinary author as he gives a feeling of closure to 24 years of work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tally | 6/3/2011

    " I had the sense to read this book alone, else I would have bawled in public(without shame). A bittersweet way to end the Transitions Trilogy. I'm eager to start on Gauntlgrym. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie Gargin | 3/18/2011

    " Out of the three books this is by far my favorite. I liked the whole storyline, I liked the joining of other characters from other books. I kind of knew right from the beginning there was going to be no happy ending.It was well done and time to move on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeffery | 2/21/2011

    " A sad sad story with action "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shawn | 2/19/2011

    " Generally better than the last two, but there was some weirdness around the Ghost King title (not the book title but the entity named the Ghost King). It was never clear what the Ghost King was or what it was the king of, which made the ending confusing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chad | 2/16/2011

    " This latest trilogy of books regarding Forgotten Realms and Drizzt Do'urden is a lot darker than some of the others for the remaining members of the group. A surprising ending for sure. I love the books and RA Salvatore does a great job in keeping the novels fresh and exciting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 2/15/2011

    " Easily one of the best things I have read by Mr Salvatore to date "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin | 11/24/2010

    " the most emotional book that i have ever read, cried like a baby for over half a hour when finish with the book, that is way ending should be done! if without that ending, this would be a crap of a book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bradley | 10/26/2010

    " Sentimental ending, kind of sad, still disappointed with the trilogy as a whole because of lack of cohesiveness. I know their needs to be evolution of characters throughout a series, and this is a long series, but too many deaths of dear characters "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clinton | 10/7/2010

    " I really liked it. I lake all the forgotton reamls books by R.A.Salvitor. I like this style of books with Drizzt and the companions and all theadventures they go on. this was the last book in this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 10/6/2010

    " We know what to expect from Salvatore at this point and Ghost King was no different. Very solid Salvatore bread and butter stuff here. I devoured this book in a weekend. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ed | 9/19/2010

    " Great book full of action and twists. Enjoyed it much more than The Pirate King and The Orc King. Best of the trilogy. "
