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.

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.

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.

The Halfling's Gem

I think instead of the Icewind Dale trilogy this should be called The Halflings gem trilogy.

Just as good as the book!

i read almost all of the Legend of Drizzt books while i was in high school. They were easily my favorite books and i bought the full sets as soon as i could afford them. Having not read them in years, and to help with the now long drive to work, i downloaded audible and immediately got the icewind dale trilogy. Victor Bevine brings excellent life to the books and the stories are just as good, if not better for having an excellent narrator! Easily still my favorite fantasy books!

Great Author and Narator

Rob Salvatore is famous for a reason. Victor Bevine plays the perfect Drizt. He could read a dictionary and I'd live it. I could not imagine anyone better to narrate this series.
