T to deliver him into the clutches of the vile Pasha Pook But Drizzt and Wulfgar are close o I feel like this didnt age well and i hate how the characters that died were never really dead It also was too drawn out

R.A. Salvatore ð The Halfling's Gem Reader

The Halfling's GemRegis has fallen into the hands of the assassin Artmis Entreri who is taking him to Calimpor A 300 page chase with some solid parts and a lot of not so solid partsDrizzt's journey continues and the original trilogy the Icewind Dale trilogy ends This one was definitely worth reading for its influential position in fantasy and published DD literature but it was definitely very weak overall and reads like exactly what it is a fantasy fan's first attempt at publishing some adventures himselfThe contrast is huge to the Dark Elf trilogy written later but taking place earlier in the chronology in which Salvatore has already grown his skills I will definitely keep following the series and am excited to follow these characters around the world especially now that I've gotten the low point out of the way
