Book Description

6 July 2010 Transitions (Book 3)
Don't miss the gripping conclusion to Salvatore's New York Times best-selling Transitions trilogy!

When the Spellplague ravages Faerûn, Drizzt and his companions are caught in the chaos. Seeking out the help of the priest Cadderly–the hero of the recently reissued series The Cleric Quintet–Drizzt finds himself facing his most powerful and elusive foe, the twisted Crenshinibon, the demonic crystal shard he believed had been destroyed years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Amazing, Salvatore at his best. 28 Dec 2009
Format:Hardcover
I have been a big fan of Salvatore since I can remember, his first book was released the year I was born and I have read every book Salvatore has ever written.

This book blew me away. It was the finest piece he's ever written and a fitting testament to the Companions of the Hall. In-depth battle scenes and mind blowing environments take you deep into this book.

Many of the main characters were in this book, unfortunately you see nothing of Artemis Entreri or Lady Alustriel though both are mentioned in several places.

The best part of this book is where Jarlaxle looks back at a memory of him and Drizzt's father Zaknafein in a battle. I personally would love to see Salvatore go back in history and write a trilogy based on those two, but that seems unlikely.

Overall this book was stunning, and I would personally recommend it to any Salvatore fan, or any fan of fantasy for that matter.

Thanks for reading.

Michael.

3.0 out of 5 stars Realms in Transition 9 Oct 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is a bit of a mixed bag, there are parts of it that are brilliant, and others that are slow and unnecessary. I would give these book 3 stars but 4 stars as a trilogy.

This book takes place 8 year after the disaster of the last book. After this book the Realm will never be the same again. Something has happened to the weave (the energy field that all magic originates from). All magic is becoming chaotic and unpredictable and is some cases back firing. Now I would have expected this would raise the stature of more of the warriors such as Drittz but in this book Drizzt is reminded that some situations are too big even for him to be more than a footnote. Anyway the chaos magic is casing a dimensional convergence (two or more plains of existence overlapping). This causes the energies from the destroyed Crystal Shard to find a new host and attempt to become the Ghost King. The result ZOMBIES lots of them! I hate zombies anyway and I had my fill of them in the last book so this might colour my view of the book. There is a bit a passing the torch as the next generations of adventures are introduced. 2 main character and one side character "die" or pass on to another form of existence. This book is full of zombies and crawlers (really big spiders).

I really liked the first book in the trilogy The Orc King: Forgotten Realms - Transitions Trilogy, Book 1 was excelent it forced readers and the characters to question their core beliefs and how to carry on in the face of this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A requiem for the realms 27 Nov 2009
Format:Hardcover
The Weave connects everything. All that moves upon Toril is a part of it, from the humble common rat to the mightiest chromatic dragon, and through it they are bound to their place in the universe. It binds too the oceans and the mountains, the plains and the deserts, the movement of the clouds in the sky and the very transit of Selūne's Tears in the heavens.

There are those who can shape this silent force that gives form and moment to the reality of Toril: The magi, sorcerers, arcanists, mages and wizards; for for as long as there has been a weave there have been those who can bend it to their will. Some delight children with the conjuring of coloured balls of light and the pop and crackle of a cantrip or two to make the young ones run away in fright, only to return from their mother's skirts giggling with excitement asking boldly for more. These are the wizards who bring magic to the people. Then there are those who may mend the most grievous of injuries, though they may draw on the Weave through the intercession of another, divine, entity. These are the healers, who bring solace to the people and salve to their hurts and woes. And then there are those who bend the Weave to darker ends -the necromancers who lust for power, glory and gold, and will stop at nothing to gain it. But they are alike in their reverence for the Weave, though they turn it to different ends.

But in another reality a different group of wizards; a dark cabal calling themselves the Wizards of the Coast, conspired for ever more power, ever more glory and ever, ever more gold.
