Summary

Assassin Artemis Entreri whisks his kidnapped victim, Regis the halfling, south to Calimport and into Pasha Pook's vengeful hands. If Pook can control the magical panther Guenhwyvar, Regis will die in a real game of cat and mouse.

Using an enchanted mask, dark elf Drizzt Do'Urden hides his heritage and races with the barbarian Wulfgar to save their light-fingered friend. An unexpected ally arrives just as Entreri springs a trap. But can Regis survive unscathed?

The companions from Icewind Dale battle pirates on the famed Sword Coast, brave the deserts of Calimshan, and fight monsters from other planes to rescue their friend…and themselves.

Icewind Dale Trilogy a winner

I enjoyed the Icewind Dale Trilogy, a story of the earliest days of Drizzt's existence above ground. I enjoyed watching the Companions develop their relationships. The story is fast paced, plenty of action. Victor Bevine did a good job of narrating.

Enjoyable, non-challenging youth fantasy

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would not recommend this book in particular, but rather Salvatore in general, because all of his books are pretty much interchangeable.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Not applicable

Did Victor Bevine do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

He was okay.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Probably not.

Excellent book!

Had a few slower spots but overall I loved it. During one of my commutes while reading, I got so entranced by the book that it took a moment to remember if I was driving to, or from work!

Great book!

I've read this entire series and loved it. The narrator does a nice job overall but mispronounced a few words as others have said which makes the teacher in me cringe.

Great ending to the trilogy! One narrator gripe :/

What did you love best about The Halfling's Gem?

The characters really make the story. The core characters and their interpersonal relationships, while questing in the Forgotten Realms, are just about classic fantasy now. Who doesn't like Drizzt?

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Halfling's Gem?

When the story was taken to one of the lesser planes. The description of another plane of existence was spot-on...very good.

Any additional comments?

The third installment of The Icewind Dale Trilogy was a fun listen, although standard fantasy storytelling - no Game of Thrones type political backstabbing or shady plots...it's great D&D. I rate both the story and the narrator together, so I had to bring it down a notch. The narrator has an aggravating way of whispering during most of the book. His voices and cadence were fine, I just wish he would speak in a normal tone.
