Enjoying the opening though it doesn't really feel like part of a "trilogy." So far what's bothered me most is Regis' reaction to the Harpells polymorphing a murderer into a bunny. Really Regis?

I think that there's not a lot of activity in this particular discussion because it's a bit of an older book, so no one is actively reading it now.

This Pirate thing is absolutely not for me, way too stretched story-wise for my taste.

This is my favorite Drizzt novel. I also thought Regis reaction was silly. Yeah, Jar's presence was pretty clear to anyone who's read RAS. I take issue with calling this "darker." I don't see it as being dark so much as Drizzt being forced to deal with the consequences of his actions. I would like to see more of it from RAS. I haven't read a Drizzt novel since The Companions, mind.

I doubt he thought any of us would be fooled. It was meant to show that Jar can still fool those around him, in world, though. We've been reading about Jar's hijinks for years. But the pirate high captains of Luskan certainly have not.

It was kinda an inside joke or inside share with us readers, methinks. "I know something 'The Crow' doesn't know!"



Yeah that makes more sense. Jarlaxle did seem impressed with Kensidan toward the end and he seems like a character I'd love to see more of at some point.

Drizzt's little journal entries are hit or miss with me. Curious to see how I react to the one you are talking about here when I get to that book.

Methinks the common link between the individual books of the "Transitions" mini-series was the loss of control and assured success by the main hero, Drizzt. There are things that are bigger than our favorite drow ranger, and he can't win them all. This was also a bridge to the darker feel that 4E was going for.
