I felt the excitement of Drizzt and Catti-brie fighting side-by-side without some of the emotional and physical baggage of more recent annuals. I jeered Errtu in his infatuation with causing pain to the drow hero and his friends. I laughed at the antics of Harkle Hapell, Ivan, and the doo-dad Pikel. Of all the books in the series, this one always felt like a class reunion more than a new adventure.
However, like any class reunion, it's hard to walk away without renewing old friendships, reminiscing on past adventures, and marveling at how far you've come since the old days. Salvatore has definitely come far. Nov 08, Nico rated it liked it Shelves: physical-books-shelf. This Drizzt book felt out of place somehow. It didn't really fit in the series, I quite liked the ending of the last book and it could have been a nice ending to a trilogy, but Salvatore went on to tell what happened after the battle.
The first part was entertaining, but the identity of the prisoner was too obvious, I even feared who it was in the epilog of book three. Dead characters should stay dead. I believe to have heard that later on in the series R. Salvatore goes on to thin the ranks o This Drizzt book felt out of place somehow. Salvatore goes on to thin the ranks of Drizzt friends again, I'm looking forward to this : One of the weakest Drizzt books I have read till now, but it certainly won't stop me to read on.
First I want to say I'm a long time R. A Salvatore fan and also a Drizzt fan no not a fanboy fan, fanboys are weirdos.
Ok let's go I thought the best i can say for this book is it has a couple of moments that did entertain. I mean Wulfgar! Mar 02, Lui Duncombe rated it really liked it. A nice break in the Drizzt series from the constant evil Drow killing, and always a nice change being set anywhere other than Menzoberranzan. Felt a little cheap having Crenshinibon and Errtu as the big bad evils again.
When the true identity of Errtu's prisoner is revealed, I found it very emotional and joyous, if a little rushed over in the aftermath of the reveal. The seal taming part was a little stupid, and probably could've been accomplished in a different way Overall still a great book in the series, can't wait to start book XI. Yet another amazing installment of the Drizzt series by R.
In this one, Dirzzt and his friends are once again caught up in the evil machinations of the demon Errtu, and have to band together to defeat him. I loved this story, as I have loved all of the Drizzt books so far. I love the fight scenes that Salvatore crafts, he really knows how to make you feel as if you are there in the action with the characters. It never fails to make me feel warm and happy! View 2 comments. Oct 27, Kyle Leeper rated it liked it. Although I still liked the book, I'm starting to lose interest in the series.
At this point I just want to say that I read all Rather than genuinely wanting to see what new challenge Drizzt and his friends overcome. We'll see how many more I can get through before it grabs me again like the first 6 did. I did enjoy the naval battles and journeys. It was a refreshing change of pace.
Definitely saw the "big twist" coming a mile away. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Was anyone actually surprised that it was Wulfgar? I mean it would have been a much bigger shock if it had been Drizzt's father. Even without the barbarian subplot. I enjoyed most of the book except that part.
Apr 30, Quintin Zimmermann rated it it was ok. This long running series is really starting stagnate. The characters have been through the same dramas and plot devices before, but even more condemning, they are now beginning to irritate. Nov 12, Tawnya rated it liked it. Not my favorite. What is it with some authors and the need to bring back the dead? There is nothing wrong with continuing a story without some character. Just move on already!
View 1 comment. I know not. Another stepping stone, I would guess, but whether there really is a road that would lead me to a place called home, I do not know" 9. My Thoughts I don't like giving a Drizzt book this low of a rating, but this book was a dud for me. The beginning was painfully slow.
Of course, Salvatore's books get more exciting as the story progresses, but this book pushed my patience. I skim-read 20 pag "Is this my home? I skim-read 20 pages because I was so bored! The first third of the book is about Drizzt and Cattie-Brie on a pirate-hunter ship, and this ship that they're on goes on a wild goose chase in search of a legendary island.
They get there, an old lady recites a poem, and they leave. It was so disappointing! All that build-up! All the hype! And then, they just turn around. I was expecting so much more from this legendary island! And then there's all the talk about ship life.
Wizards communicating with seagulls. Bad storms. Fixing the sails. Expected fights with pirates with expected outcomes. Explanations of general nautical terms. Generic shipboard troubles. I was so bored! It felt like there was nothing plot-related going on. The middle third I found to be tedious, but had some interesting dialogue exchanges and occurrences.
The last third was probably the best as is with most Salvatore books I've read. Salvatore showed his hand and there were a couple of cards I wasn't expecting. It's nice to be surprised. I gave this a low rating because as much as I love the characters and want to read about their journeys, I was bored. I felt Salvatore was just filling pages. You could skip this book and with a couple sentences of spoilers, not lose anything.
There are over 30 Drizzt books, and I think this one is a dud. I am going to keep reading. I know the series gets better at least that's what I'm told. I am looking forward to seeing Entreri and Jarlaxle again. This is the tenth book of the adventures of Drizzt, and the fourth in the Legacy of the Drow series. Drizzt and Catti-brie have left Mithral Hall, feeling they no longer belong there.
They have spent the last six years fighting pirates along the Sword Coast with Captain Deudermont.
The Legend of Drizzt - Wikipedia
Ertu goes to great lengths to try to get Drizzt to call him back to the prime material plane, first sending him on wild voyages all over the southern seas. He has a witch memorize a prophecy to recite to Drizzt and his This is the tenth book of the adventures of Drizzt, and the fourth in the Legacy of the Drow series. He has a witch memorize a prophecy to recite to Drizzt and his friends that implies that there is a way he can rescue his father.
They are sent back to Icewind Dale where they met and where the demon, Ertu, and the newly rediscovered crystal shard, Crenshinibon, have gotten together to lay a trap for them. But when they arrive in Icewind Dale, they find that most of their friends have returned there as well. So the odds are not as much against them as Ertu would like. Jan 06, Travis O. This is the weakest book of the series of the first ten. It feels sloppy and rushed, and the characters are not only out of tune gleeful abandon and reckless violence but incapable of foresight.

Despite that, they do literally everything right. There are no stakes in the book because the characters mist survive to the final showdown, which is broadcast with no subtlety whatsoever from the get go.
Chasing pirates aboard Captain Deudermont's Sea Sprite is enough to draw their attention away from their grief. Then a mysterious castaway on an uncharted island sends them back to the very source of their pain, and into the clutches of a demon with vengeance on his mind.

So, where more traditional tales focus on the link between rescuer and abductee, this story drags its heroes the length of the Forgotten Realms on a mission to save somebody.
They're not exactly sure who, but someone needs rescuing and there's a good chance of a ruck, too.
Forgotten Realms: Passage to Dawn (Legend of Drizzt #10)
Drizzit, the star, is a male Ranger with a fondness for sunrises and the open sea, while the wizard Harkle Harpell behaves exactly as described in the Forgotten Realms expansion set The North , but his unbridled power and sudden appearance is, sadly, anything but convincing. But while this makes individual encounters fun, it begins to pull the weak plot out of shape.
What starts out as a pirate chase turns into a treasure hunt, which leads the crew to a far away lake and back up north for a final showdown with a Balor. All too often, your concentration is shattered by the introduction of Drizzit's essays on life, a sudden change of tack, or the arbitrary introduction of superfluous characters. There are some neat set-pieces but they just don't hold together. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Passage to Dawn Cover of the first edition. Future Publishing 12 : 80— The New York Times.
