Publisher's 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.

Awesome series

One of the best series I've read (or listen to). Icewind dale trilogy is a must for those into fantasy. Well read except when he says lived ( past tense) as a present tense. Other then that Awesome job.

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.

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.

performance one word grates

lived is not a hard word to read in English and unless i pronounce it wrong myself it hurts to hear him read it so... but i love the books love the voices of the characters the the feel. that word alone is my only gripe for what is other wise a perfect book.

What could have been

A great story, plot and setting. My criticism is more toward the character development. I absolutely hate how the characters talk to eachother. Drizzt is the incels perfect hero. I hate how all the good guys are perfectly perfect. What could have been with alittle gray. The retelling of the story is perfect.
