Choppy and too quickly resolved

This was an anti-climactic ending to the series. Not at all what I was expecting. Too short and tried to fit in too many stories. I love Salvatore, but this was not one of his best.

Great series

Where does The Chaos Curse rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is another great book by R.A Salvator

Any additional comments?

At the end of this book u find out that Cadderly is building his own place .. Now if u read a certain book by R A Salvator u will find out how it turned out and how him and danaca end up..

This is a wonderful conclusion to the Clara quintet. Thoroughly enjoyed the story and characters.

absolutely wonderful

another triumph for Salvatore and Bevine... so fast paced an end to such a treasure of a series! I had actually read(really read, not listened to) all the Drizzt novels up until a couple sagas ago, whereupon I started listening to the audible versions of the rest. I must say I'm hooked on this combination of author/ narrator. Salvatore couldn't have picked a better embodiment of my favorite green hair and bearded dwarf! Oo oi!

Fun and predictable

Many of the twists are formulaic and some of the delivery is cliche (I personally listened to most of it at 1.25x speed), but it was a strong conclusion to the series, a fun adventure and, overall, a well written tale.

Good back story

I really liked getting the back stories on some of the characters from the world of Drizzt Do'urden and Victor Bevine always does a great job of bringing Salvatore's characters to life.

Epilogue


The final 5 minutes of this stories conclusion is more than worth the purchase of this book.

a dark tale of religious conflict

how completely Salvatore turns the tables on our adventurers and depicts corruption and degradation, still keeping it child friendly. a fitting end to the saga

Speechless

Could not stop listening as every chapter was filled with excitment. Cannot believe how beautiful and thought provoking this book was. I take my hat off to R.A. Salvatore
