Much better than the Pirate King!(Which I could not even finish). ( )

Only perseverance, determination and stubbornness got me through this book. I recalled many times while reading this book the joy I used to have at reading the earlier books. Now after all this time 3 major characters get killed off just like that? To say nothing of the actual story itself which I found... boring. :( ( )

In the third book of the Transitions trilogy Drizzt and his friends faces a dreadful mighty enemy and much more.... the world itself torn apart from an another plane. Yes, the ending might be a shocker, but overall I liked it..... ( )

Oh, this book made want to throw it into a wall! This whole Transitions series was so infuriating to me! I feel like Salvatore doesn't like his characters anymore and is writing them out of obligation. I'm sorry, but I really don't like all the extras the Companions of the Hall of picked up like Cadderly, those annoying as heck dwarf brothers, Entreri or Jarlaxle (who I feel like this is character Drizzt was supposed to be originally). It seems that every novel in this series has ended with the bad guys winning. More realistic? Yes. What I want in my escapist fantasy novels? NO!

SPOILERS!

And I really hate how Regis and Catti-Brie met their ends. Catti-Brie has a brief scene, then gets taken out by magical energy and spends the rest of the novel as a useless MacGuffin. Regis doesn't even gets a scene at all. Just goes crazy and dies. You couldn't give them some honor in their deaths at all, Salvatore? Again, realistic? Yes. Good? NO!!

END OF SPOILERS!

Honestly, I haven't read any Drizzt books since this one. I can't bear it. I know deep down I'm being a petulant child who hates change, but too bad. I don't want any more from a world like what this one has become. ( )

I liked the end of it. I'm pretty done with zombies though.
