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.
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.
6 th book I've read and I'm totally hooked on the author
Narration is good but he does pronounce words very strangely "lived" being a prime example there are a few others however he does change his voice for different characters which is good
If you haven't read / listened to the proceedings books I strongly suggest you do as they follow in well
I'm looking forward to the next book in the series about the dark elf
