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.

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.
this is by far the best audio book of the series thus far. I would recommend this only if you have read the previous two books at least. however it is strongly recommended that you read or listen to the dark elf Trilogy first
The narrator is amazing to listen to. And this book had a lot of moments that made me cry, feel extreme joy, frustration, and love for the characters. Ready for the next adventure!
The narration as always was exceptional. I did however find the final book in the Icewind Dale trilogy a little hard to finish. I found myself bored at times. Salvador is probably the best Forgotten Realms author but I find myself guessing what the characters will do next. It was not very surprising and the only thing I found interesting enough to keep me listening was Artemis Entreri the Assassin. The Halflings Gem is a good book but it will probably be awhile before I listen to the audio book or read it again.
"A very decent story narrated masterfully."
I can't say the content of the story is particularly amazing, but it was written very acceptably and the narration by Bevine is top notch.
Definitely worth owning and experiencing.
