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.

    " A good fantasy adventure book with familiar characters.... There were some elements to the story which had me scratching my head but an enjoyable read nonetheless. "

    " While I enjoyed The Pirate King, it wasn't as gripping for me as most of Salvatore's other books I've read. I'm used to be pulled back and forth by intense action and emotion in a Drizzt novel, but this one didn't do that so much. Perhaps for the story of this book he wanted to tell it that way purposely. It seems like the transitional book itself in this series dubbed "transitions". Like a story told to move a set of characters to another place in preparation for a grand finale. Hopefully the next transitions book takes that preparation and drops a riveting bomb of a trilogy closing masterpiece. "

    " Ugh. What a chore this book was. It took me three weeks to finish and there were many days I didn't even pick it up. This is one of my favorite series, my favorite character and it was just awful. Salvatore is getting ridiculously boring in his later novels. Pages and pages and pages...and pages of intrigue. I'm incapable of skimming, I have to attempt to understand EVERYthing and sometimes my brain doesn't latch on. The last 40 pages of the book were somewhat interesting with the big reveal/reunion with old characters I was happy to see come back but so disappointed their appearances were relegated to cameos; near death scenes but with the hokey escape; a surprising death (Salvatore is less afraid to kill people now). It was a let down. By far the worst book of the series - it makes Seige of Darkness looks great and I've long maintained that book was the dud of the series. And besides all this, I had to walk around with a book called THE PIRATE KING for 3 weeks. People must have thought I was reading a bad romance or fanfic about Captain Jack Sparrow. "

    " It was good - good to see more of the characters that really enhanced my reading in the past - after reading it a bit I got into it much better. It is good that it is called 'Transitions' as everything is ... well falling apart and the 'world' is becoming something so different. Anyway - I did enjoy it! "
