What happens to Deudermont was really unexpected, yet perfect. I didn't expect him to do what he did, yet what happens to him still came as a total shock, even though I knew before reading this book. It was sudden and just jaw dropping, because you never expect a well-known character to leave like that. There were parts of this story that added new dimensions to Drizzt and Regis. For instance, when in Icewind Dale, and the feeling of "rightness" that they feel by being there just added something new and interesting in my eyes.
The only thing I didn't care for though, was Regis seemed to whine a lot. It wasn't bad, but his whining served a purpose and made you look into Regis' thoughts and how he feels about certain events happening.
At times the story and some characters actions didn't fit. Not only that but, the story didn't seem complete, and it seemed to lack something. Also, I didn't feel blown away by most of the events in this book. However, I'm a Drizzt fan, and always will be. I did like the book, but not enough that I thought it was great.
It just seemed mediocre. Jun 17, Dirk Grobbelaar rated it liked it Shelves: Well, this one has certainly received a mixed bag of reviews.
I have to agree with another reviewer: Drizzt needs a purpose. There is certainly a lot to give him pause in this novel but he appears strangely undecided about things.
Of course, characters constantly evolve and develop, which is why we keep coming back for more. Drizzt does receive a new nemesis in this book, but he feels like a poor Well, this one has certainly received a mixed bag of reviews.
Drizzt does receive a new nemesis in this book, but he feels like a poor stand-in for Entreri. We all know Artemis is out there This book suffers from the same disjointedness that hampered the final book in the Sellswords Trilogy. There is a lot going on, but at the same time there isn't much going on at all.
I had honestly hoped, after reading The Orc King , and really enjoying it, that this trilogy would redeem our favourite Drow. However, all is not lost. Mr Salvatore is as competent as they come and The Pirate king remains a fun read, it's just that there have been better Drizzt books.
This book is the second in a trilogy, and there is likely to be some loose ends, but the conclusion was ultimately unsatisfying. There was a time when Drizzt just seemed so The Drizzt in this book is a bit of a softy if you ask me. It's happened before. It's been rectified before. Let's see what Salvatore can pull out of the hat for the grand conclusion of the trilogy in The Ghost King. So, three stars, because despite myself I enjoyed the book. It is Drizzt after all!
Sep 28, Jeff rated it liked it Shelves: The hardcover edition was released in the US on July reprint edition. As many know, the Forgotten Realms is changing. With the advent of Dungeons and Dragons 4th Edition the FR timeline is being advanced approximately years.
The "Transitions Series" is an attempt to reconcile the two converging timelines, bridging the gap between the setting we all know and love and the new setting which has MANY stark differences. Arriving in Luskan they find strange plots afoot. Ironically when I started reading this I had just started running a Luskan-centric campaign so I was anxious to get the nitty-gritty on the Who's Who of Luskan. This book as absolutely essential for this. It breaks down how the city really works: If you were even considering running a campaign set in Luskan prior to the Spellplague, this novel is absolutely essential.
The Pirate King is an interesting story in a number of ways. Aside from really illustrating how an important city in Faerun is changed it is good because you see major characters get in to trouble that they cannot get out of. Now, you may be asking whether I hate the Forgotten Realms or its characters since I like to see them in helpless situations. I would answer no. I actually love the setting as well as the characters, but I do like drama and when I read a book, I want to have my heart-strings pulled by the author.
To that, often I believe the author needs to respect his characters enough to give them depth and sometimes to hurt or even kill them if the story requires it. Salvatore usually does a good job of this with tertiary characters: With the primary characters They get depth on occasion, and with every story the author has done a wonderful job in really giving Drizzt, Regis, Enteri, Jarlaxle etc.
Occasionally they are, but in most cases the protagonists tend to far outclass the antagonists; whether by skill, luck, the will of the gods or magical trinkets. In the last several novels R. Salvatore has produced though the stakes have gotten higher in many ways. This novel: The Pirate King is an excellent example of that. I would recommend The Sellswords Series as well. Without giving away the whole story, the author weaves a fine tale about how Luskan is changed.
The protagonists are faced with a very complicated situation and in my opinion they handle it in the expected manner yet that method is insufficient. The result is a very good tale of how good intentions can go very wrong. There were only a couple sections that I found implausible or didn't understand what happened and had to re-read it.
I was greatly amused at how easily Greeth, the Lich deals with Drizzt.
Absolutely priceless. Some parts of the overall plot are drawn out in a manner to make it a surprise in the end. Regular readers should easily see the end coming but it was still done very well. It was good to see characters like Morik the Rogue make a return. God I feel bad for that poor fool: Overall, I think this "Drizzt Story" does a very find job of putting every character in peril.
Protagonists and Antagonists alike, making judgmental mistakes occasionally being easily turned out or defeated due to poor planning, error and bad luck. I like my "heroes" fallible. I like them to learn from mistakes and have to dust them off after taking a fall. I think in many cases Drizzt and his band of super-heroes haven't done this but have Forrest Gump'd their way through adversity to success. I also think that the author is getting better and better with each novel in delivering deeper characters and stories and allowing the prize characters to get a little dirty I'm now really looking forward to The Ghost King: Transitions Book III!
Dec 28, Kathy rated it really liked it Shelves: OK, it's not the best Drizzt novel, but it's not surely the worst. For a 2nd book in a trilogy, not bad. Why is it that the bad guys are always winning in this book? Talk about depressing. Darn drow, anyway. Mar 17, Joanne rated it liked it. This book did not hold my attention and I did not finish it.
I think I was just too far away from reading the Drizzit series from the beginning. However, the first Forgotten Realms book was better. With that one, it didn't matter that I came in the middle.
Feb 08, Bethany rated it did not like it.
Persevered for 8 chapters but it was just so boring I gave up! View all 3 comments. After so many years and volumes some improvement in author's workshop can be finally observed. The Orc King could be regarded as overdone failure; in The Pirate King the change was more successful.
The main plot arc takes place in Luskan and involves a great transition indeed. High Captains think up an intrigue to gain more power in the city and to kick out Arcane Brotherhood. Captain Deudermont, aided by young Waterdhavian lord, m 21th instalment of 'Drizzt the soap opera' does not disappoint.
Captain Deudermont, aided by young Waterdhavian lord, meddles in and we get a nice little war. The intrigue itself is much better than in previous books. The outcome changed from mere 'and they lived happily ever after' to something less expected and more realistic.
Even the characters started to behave less idealistically and started to develop some common sense or not; but at least such persons aren't depicted as normal anymore. Out of all Companions of the Hall, the main characters are Drizzt and Regis cheers!
We meet Bruenor and Catti-brie only briefly, which really is a huge development for the series c'mon, how much time can a king and a nearly-forty-years-old woman spend on the road? Wulfgar arc, in my opinion, could be skipped entirely. It sounded like a total fanservice anyway, and a reminder that that character still exists.
Some good guys start to die, which is also a vast improvement. Unfortunately, there are not only good points. While the summarized plot looks pretty good, the book is in fact Terribly dull.
In spite of all these exciting events, the pace is rather steady and slow. There's nothing really, truly interesting, which would make you turn the pages faster and faster. I have no idea how Salvatore managed to achieve this, but it's true: I don't mind it that much, but there surely are people who are going to complain.
Anyway, I have high hopes for next novel, The Ghost King. Maybe in the final volume of Transitions Salvatore will manage to combine his previously fast-paced style with new, more complex plot. Jan 26, Elyse rated it really liked it. In The Pirate King, the second installment of the Transitions, the book starts off with a treaty in full swing between Mithral Hall, the Kingdom of Many-Arrows, and the Silver Marches, and the Arcane Brotherhood decides to test just how strong that treaty really is right at the start.
After four years of Wulfgar no longer being with them, Drizzt and Regis decide to set out on a trip to Icewind Dale to see how their barbarian friend is doing now back in his homeland.

Deurdermont learns the Luskan is living in fear of Arklem Greeth, a very powerful wizard, and the four and a young noble enlists the help of Deurdermont to take Luskan back and free the people of their fears.
The Pirate King - Salvatore Robert
Drizzt longs to help his friend who spent some years sailing with, but Regis longs to see their companion. What will the fate of Luskan and Wulfgar be? I have a soft spot in my heart for pirates, so I was captured by this book right away.
I loved it, though the short bit with the Harpells did confuse me as to the purpose, but I suppose it was to prepare the state of mind for the reader and as well as the characters for Luskan.
I also enjoyed how the story was told with some characters not being revealed quite so soon. It was told in a way that the reader found out as the characters found out so it was almost easier to relate in the moment.
Stories don't always have to just put everything out there all out once and characters don't always get to be invincible. Via www. I consider them must-reads for fantasy buffs and role-playing gamers alike!
The Pirate King
The author never fails to deliver fast-paced, well-rounded books. I love them because they manage to build momentum off of one another while still maintaining a fully developed plot within each book. A lot of fun to read, they set the stage for what has erupted into hundreds of Forgotten Realms spinoffs some of which are quite good.

From the frozen tundra of Icewind Dale to the seaside city of Luskan, you will never go without an excellent setting. They certainly are different than other books in the saga, and I always find them a breath of fresh air no pun intended. While there are so many great attributes to this saga, by far my favorite elements are the characters. There are several throughout this series that I have absolutely loved — including the villains.

The Forgotten Realms is going through a time of turmoil and change and that is more than aptly brought through as we learn what becomes of Wulfgar, the difference wrought in Cattie-brie as she endeavors to learn wizadry and watch Drizzt learn how many shades of gray and what consequences come of meddling in politics and in places where they were not invited or particularly welcome. As always, Salvatore's characters grow and evolve, and I notice especially now how they are increasingly facing situations where there is no easily defined right or wrong.
I love the fact that Drizzt is no longer portrayed as the unstoppable epitome of fighting perfection. He gets himself into many situations that make him ironically seem more Old friends, allies and enemies make spectacular reappearances, some very different from previous experiences.
I will throw in this little spoiler. Jan 05, Isaac Clarke rated it liked it Shelves: Dec 15, Dan Young rated it it was ok Shelves: This book is going to make me step away from Drizzt for a while. I enjoy the series, and even though there is very little left here that could really blow me away I generally enjoy Salvatore. But this book seemed a bit all over the place. Some characters were left in the dust and hardly were in the book, others seemed to serve no purpose but were there all along.
A bit too jumbled for me Feb 10, Dante Carlisle rated it really liked it. Bob Salvatore has decided that things aren't crazy enough in this amazing series he's written and goes out of his way to shake up what we thought was going on.
As always an amazing read from this author. Mar 20, Jeremiah Mccoy rated it it was ok. The fight scenes are interesting but that is about it. Salvatore has not met a cliche he would not go down on for the first date but he writes a fun fight. Nov 08, Juicykbf rated it really liked it. Decent read. True to series. Jun 18, Kelly rated it really liked it Shelves: The subtitle of this trilogy, Transitions, is so very apt.
Oct 10, Allen M Werner rated it really liked it. There are a lot of the books written about the drow elf, Drizzt, and I don't tire of reading them. This one, The Pirate King, Book 2 of the Transitions trilogy, was exciting and filled with adventure. There was quite a bit of kingdom building in this one, as well as kingdom destroying. The dangerous lich, Arklem Greeth, and the various mages of Hostower were all interesting characters, as we the five Captains and their confidants.
The beginning of the book was a little difficult to grasp but the There are a lot of the books written about the drow elf, Drizzt, and I don't tire of reading them. The beginning of the book was a little difficult to grasp but the familiar players help with that.
Before mid-book, the reader is fully absorbed and the last half of the book is some of the author's best work. Great reading material. The only reason I'm giving it four stars instead of five is the Wulfgar character and Drizzt and Regis journey north to find him.
It all seemed unnecessary and unbelievable for a fantasy like this , in the manner in which they locate him out in the wilds of Icewind Dale. If there had been some clue or breadcrumbs that led them there, that would have helped. Just "accidentally" locating a barbarian three years in the wilds of the frozen north didn't cut it.
And the reason for going and only spending a day with him just sucked any life out of that part of the story.
Other than that - this is a great fantasy adventure story. Jun 09, Alfonso Cavarero rated it liked it Shelves: It's a 3.
