It is even for a fantasy book The seal incident is one of the many scenes that make Passage To Dawn the low point in the Drizzt saga I nearly uit the series after reading it Fortunately I gave the dark elf another chance and the later books sparked my interest again Still I've never been able to forgive Salvatore for the atrocities he committed in Passage To Dawn Let's take the scene where Drizzt meets Cadderly for example Never mind that Salvatore indulged in his worst instincts by allowing them to meet the scene is so cloyingly sentimental it's sickening Not only does the author nearly ruin the Drizzt series in one swift stroke he nearly ruins Cadderly's story as well The ending to the Cleric uintet was appropriately bittersweet with Cadderly sacrificing his love for his wife to his love for his god But wait He lived after all And he and Drizzt automatically became best friends And so did Danica and Catti brie Yay PukeOne last thought Salvatore must have been sleepwriting through the climactic� final scene where Wulfgar makes his reappearance That's the only explanation for his straightforward approach to what should have been a moment of high dramaYou weren't trying as hard on this one Bob and it shows

eBook Passage to Dawn

Passage to DawnR the creaking boards of a swift well weathered ship Beyond that lies the azure blanket flat and still heaving and rolling hissing in the rain and exploding under the fall of a breaching whaleIs this then my hom This Drizzt book felt out of place somehow It didn't really fit in the series I uite 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 RA 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
