Regis has fallen into the hands of the assassin Artmis Entreri, who is taking him to Calimport to deliver him into the clutches of the vile Pasha Pook. But Drizzt and Wulfgar are close on their heels, determined to save Regis from his own folly as much as from his powerful enemies.

The original book cover was absolutle horrible, featuring an anorexic Drizzt riding a little TOO happily on a horse while waving Twinkle at nothing in particular. However, the actual story is excellent, putting the dark elf into a desert, and subsequently into the slums of a giant city(based on modern day Cairo, I'm sure). The new cover of this novel is a welcome change, and newcomer fans of Drizzt should pick this up! Also, the villians are top rate. (one Pasha Pook by name. weird label, good villian)

Been a fan of this story for many a years. The dark elf is one of my favorite characters of any series I've ever read. If you haven't read this, you really should consider it.

A fitting ending to the Icewind Dale trilogy. Nothing spectacular in the field of literature, but I found this book enjoyable. I will be reading more Salvatore in the future. Great read to escape from the current hardships of the day.

The 3rd book in the 'first' Drizzt trilogy, as written, the 6th book, in order of Drizzt's life as told in the books so far.

The Halfling's Gem feels, to me, an anticlimactic coda to an otherwise decent fantasy trilogy. Never to be confused with brilliance, but briskly paced enough to avoid becoming bogged down by the limitations of the genre. After the first two books focus on the reclamation of the dwarven homeland, The Halfling's Gem tries to shift the heroes' focus to their protecting their "brotherhood." It has all the potential to be heartwarming, but the characters never rest control of the narrative away from the plodding plot.

Seeing how this was my second time reading this book I enjoyed it immensely. The first time I read this book I completed it in a single day. This time it was more like a week, but it¿s still a fantastic book. There¿s not too much deeper meaning in this one. It¿s just a really great story, a wondrous adventure. Drizzt¿s struggle with Artemis, and thus himself, is the only character-building part of the story.

Much better balanced than the previous two. This is the conclusion to the first trilogy of the life of Drizzit, and whilst ok enough to be enjoyable I'm not enthused to rush out and read the remaining 20 odd. The plot is still somewhat laughably thin though. The Halfling's previous crimes have finally caught up with him nad he's been dragged unceremoniously back to some city to face the Thief Guildmaster's punishments. Our heros aren't going to let that stop them though, and chase off behind the assassin who has him in tow. Apart from the dwarf who's still recouperating and needs to recapture his city that he fled in the last book. However when offered a magical flying chariot he realises he can catch up with his friends help rescue the halfling and still make it back in time for the big fight.A bit more characterisation, and introspection from various people help bring this to life. The author's fascination with irritating dialects remains a constant pain however. There is no real danger of any of the characters dying, you know they'll all survive, the fun is in how they do it. This time round though the opposition is much more believable for mid-level RPG characters, and hence the difficulties are somewhat more reasonable. There is still a lot of words described to excatly what arc the scimiatrs are flowing thorugh and the power of a big warhammer. The promised big fight just fizzles away. Enjoyable and best of the bunch, but nothing to write home about.

This is where I wish there was a 3 1/2 and a 4 1/2 stars... Salvatore is much better here than the first book, but they are all three getting 3 stars... this was close to four, but not quite there yet!

Salvatore is my favorite author, the way he makes you feel that you are a part of the family, and the desceiptive way he tells the tale just pulls you in and you cant stop reading.
