First off, this is the conclusion of the Icewind Dale Trilogy. I would strongly recommend reading the first two novels in the series, The Crystal Shard and Streams of Silver, to truly enjoy this book. This story picks up with Artemis Entreri, running off with Regis from Mithral Hall, the halfling, to return him to Pasha Pook the leader of the largest thieves' guild in Calimport. Drizzt and friends chase after Entreri to save Regis from the almost certain death that awaits him in Calimport. The plot is pretty straight forward, but there are definitely enough complications to keep it interesting.
I really enjoyed this book and thought it was the best book in the trilogy. The Halfling's Gem regains the continuous fast paced adventure that was lost in part of Streams of Silver. I found the supporting characters in this book much better conceived and interesting. The battle scenes in the boat and at Pasha Pook's palace were at least as good as any of the battle scenes in the other two books. Also Drizzt's attempt to find himself and what he stands for really progresses in this book. This continues in the Dark Elf Trilogy, which occurred before he reached Icewind Dale, but was written after the Icewind Dale Trilogy. All in all the writing in this novel has really improved from the first two books. This same quality continues through the rest of the Drizzt series. I whole-heartedly recommend this novel for the entertaining fast paced read that it is.

First let me say that each book in this trilogy is great but that this is the one that makes the whole trilogy very special. Drizzt struggles with what he might have become and continually searches for what he is. I love the Drizzt monologues at the beginning of each book and that's just one detail that all adds up to make this book one to read over and over. Sure, some of the stuff is predictable but the characters and ideals they struggle for are what bring magic to this one. As you get older you get very cynical. This book may not change that but it reminds you of the things you used to very strongly believe in. Not in a campy way either but through the trials the characters go through and the theme of the book. In this sense, The Halfling's Gem reminds us of what is important like friends and respecting people. It also constantly entertains like few others. Don't miss!

Although the Crystal Shard, Streams of Silver and the Halfling's Gem are now listed as volumes 4, 5, and 6 respectively in the Drizzt Do'Urdon pantheon of literature, they were actually the first novels R. A. Salvatore wrote and had published introducing the Drizzt, Wulfgar, Breunor, Cattie Brie and Regis characters. The Halfling's Gem brought the first trilogy to a very satisfactory conclusion, while still sewing the seeds for future delights. What I love about R. A. Salvatore is he tends to write in series of three, so each trilogy can stand on its own or tie together to form one big saga. I have read and reread the original trilogy time and time again, with "the Halfling's Gem" being the end of a remarkable read.

Unlike so many the story of Drizzt never grows stale for me. In this book you see what friendship really means to Drizzt and the others. You get to watch a love grow between cattibrie and Wulfgar and the masses love between Drizzt and cattibrie. Read as they put it all on the line to save a friend. Will the make there in time to save Regis and will Drizzt be able to face his mirrored reflection the assassin he might of been. Then read on and lose your self in this fantastic continuation of the story of Drizzt Do'Urden.

"The Halfling's Gem" is the final book in the "Icewind Dale" trilogy, which immediately picks up after the cliffhanger in the previous book. This tale completes the journey for Drizzt and his band of companions as they battle unbelievable odds, new magical creatures, and even pirates!

This is the sixth Drizzt book I've read in the "Forgotten Realms" series, and it seems like the author hit upon a predictable pattern. The story is still interesting to read to see how the group miracles themselves out of tight spots, but it lacked any real suspense or surprise for me.

The story did really make me question Regis' merits, and his contribution to the company. I get they are all friends, but Regis' doesn't really bring anything good to the table. The bow, sword, hammer, and axe are all strong fighters and good-aligned members of the band, but Regis is a thief and liar; although, he does show flashes of courage when backed into a corner.

Overall, the book met my expectations. I enjoyed the journey, but I wasn't satisfied with Regis' character, the rushed story line to return to Mithral Hall, and the conclusion. Drizzt's journal entries, his struggle with being judged on his actions were familiar things from the earlier books, and those are things that I treasure the most. This completes my journey with Drizzt because I don't see much changing in the series after six books.

Like every book I have read by Mr. Salvatore, this is a gem, pun intended. If you are new to Drizzt, I recommend starting with The Crystal Shard: The Legend of Drizzt, Book IV. If you've read the series but haven't read the Halfling's Gem yet, what are you waiting for ! :-)
