The Halfling's Gem
My wonderful Wulfgar ❤
The sharp tounged and awesome Bruenor Battleaxe ❤
The lovely and bad to the bone Cattie-Brie ❤
I didn't add Regis but I love him too. 😊
These friends do everything for each other, even die if they have to and I never want to see that day come 😫
The ending was so sweet. Wulfgar and Cattie-Brie. Bruenor ruling over his home again. And we shall see with Drittz, he's never sits long and he has his own thought ...more
DAVE'S FINAL JUDGMENT -
- Salvatore once again proves that he's one of the best at describing action sequences
- Lightning quick pace and non-stop action ensures Salvatore has many opportunities to prove the above claim
- While Drizzt may be the star of the show, Bruenor, Wulfgar, Regis, and especially Cattie-Brie are all given their moments to shine
- Features more originality than the previous books of The Icewi ...more
Here's what this book reminded me of: I work a job where I scan a document into the computer as a picture then convert that picture into text using a "smart read" program. This program often messes up: interchanging I's, 1's and l's. It also mistakes O's and 0's and changes other things like t's to i's and ect. It even goes so far as to turn D's into I) or d's into cl. My job is to read through and correct ...more

I see that the series' greatest appeal must come from the obligatory and breathless battle sequences -- and those can be kind of entertaining.
The Halfling's Gem contains the best of the series so far (taken in chronological order). From Rogues Circle to the Sewers of Calimport to Tarterus to victory, Salvatore rolls an ...more

This book tells the tale of the companions running to the ends of the realm, trying to rescue Regis and Guenhwyvar from the assassin Artemis Entreri. The plot, as is sounds, is pretty straight forward but it still didn't disappoint at all.
It was so full of suspense that you just can't put the book down. And the action! I thought this was so action packed, it would fill three other books with enough. Most of all though, it was just so exciting and fun.
And the ch ...more
-There is a shift, tonally, in RA Salvatore's writing style that I really enjoyed. Better sentence structure, more enhanced and descriptive battle scenes, but not hard to follow.
-Getting to see the realms was a pleasure. Waterdeep, Baldur's Gate and Calimsham!
-This book was number 12 on the New York Times bestseller list at it's release. I imagine that sealed the deal for RA's writing career and legi ...more
The Companions of the Hall: Drizzt, the dark elf; Wulfgar, the Barbarian, Bruenor, the Dwarf; and Cattie-Brie, the human adopted daughter of Bruenor, aren't supposedly invincible, but upon reading the book it's quite apparent that they are. It's a fantasy book with superheroes and never fear for their deaths ...more
There’s plenty of good action in this installment, several lost-and-found characters, plus incredible imaginary beasts. Positive from my point of view is Cattie-Brie getting ...more
This book ( and the entire drizzt series/ stories) is one of the worst books I've read since "bridge to teribithia 3". The characters are horribly cliched...even in a cliched world. They have almost no flaws save for their brooding, whining 'woe as me' thought process. Reading ( later skipping) excerpts of a protagonists diary that ...more
The action scenes and the ending tension are still top notch. Grabbing the reader and not letting go. Because the book is one action scene after another, is hard to put it down once you start reading.
From sea to desert to urban environment to Hell i ...more
This is one of my favorite fantasy series and I like to read it again every few years. Check it out!
- The metaphors need to die in the fire of thousand angry suns. I kept reading about lavender lights, round orbs and glimmering reflections and I wanted to shoot myself. I understand it's the traditional high-fantasy style of writing but I guess I've been spoiled to enjoy such things.
- The characters are very ...more
After getting through six of these books, I would have to say my vocabulary concerning the Forgotten Realms has increased somewhat and I've been able to follow some of our adventures a little bit better since I have some more familiarity with the s ...more
Join Drizzt Do'Urden, the world's most famous drow elf, on his adventures in the Forgotten Realms!
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.About the Author
R.A. Salvatore has spent so many years winding himself into fantasy worlds tha
Oh, well. Note to self: never get bitten by a wererat, and never become a gray dwarf.
Drizzt's monologues at the beginning of each part of the book are so out of character and naive t ...more
I didn't think it possible, but Salvatore is writing better and more detailed fight scenes with each new book in his Drizzt series! And truly, this is the strength of these stories; his descriptive and action packed fight scenes. And despite the fact that Catti-brie and Wulfgar are maried by the end of this ...more
I enjoyed this book quite a lot! The things that had annoyed me about The Crystal Shard and Streams of Silver were not nearly as apparent in this book, which made it far more enjoyable. Salvatore definitely shows a lot of improvement in his writing.
A fast pace and numerous fight scenes made this a quick read. There isn't much character depth, and some of the characters are easily swayed by flimsy arguments, but what else do you expect from one of these books?
I would've given th ...more

But would he then be trapped within the web of his own deception? What freedom could he find in denying the truth about himself?”
