Thanks for telling us about the problem. The internal dialog drove me crazy There were at least five climaxes and no real resolutions. Aug 30, Josh Otwell rated it liked it. Elminster aids the player’s party from Limbo, offering advice and direction and shuttling them back and forth between the dimensions they must travel in order to undo Bane’s plot. Elmknster also meets an old man who turns out to be Elminster, and learns that he is her father.
This is easily the worst of the Elminster books. Mystra, helo to Elminsters aid, shocking.
My favorite in the elminster series. The only thing we seem to agree about is that Greenwood by nature is a good writer. He met and became friends with Farl, a local thief, who knew Elminster as Eladar “the Dark”.
To use a philosophical term, the story is written in a phenomenological way, that is, it is written “as experienced”. How did it get out on the market?? I won’t give it away but you can bet it ends in a storm of mystical battle between most of the realms most famous.
The last hundred pages is pretty good. Following the events of the Spellplague caused by the destruction of his patron, Mystra, Elminster lost much of his power but remained unaging. As the critical moment of the Time of Troubles approached, Mystra knew of what was to come and elminstrr most of her power into the human wizard Midnight, so that all of her essence would not cease to exist.
She spoke to and left the awestruck Elminster with the message that he should learn of magic and worship her. Elminster 1 – 10 of 11 books. Death of the Dragon. Mar 27, Jesse rated it really liked it Shelves: As he and Myrjala left the kingdom, the so-called Mage Royal, Undarl, attacked them, and the sorceress revealed herself to be Mystra.

He jumped from point of view to point of view. How to write a great review.
Elminster in Hell
It is also suspected that he had something to do with the founding of Waterdeep, or at least with the organizing of the city’s lords. I am guessing Greenwood was trying to write something different but it really did not work for me. Would somebody on let him know that an endless string of battles is not a book.
Since Elminster obtained his power from Mystra, this change left him personally powerless at a critical juncture. See if you have enough points for this item. The scene at the end reminded of something a 4 year old would tell.

Elminster in Hell (Elminster, #4) by Ed Greenwood
The book details the ancient elven society and its people, as well as highlighting Elminster’s continued magical studies, as he serves as an apprentice to a cruel and powerful wizard. To what depths will the malevolent forces of the inferno sink to gain that prize?
They worked together frequently, eventually forming a gang dubbed the Velvet Hands in opposition to another local gang, the Moonclaws, who were servants of the magelords. The cover lied to me. Maybe it will turn out good, but I’m forty pages in and its been nothing but him killing demons, remembering stuff, and getting ripped apart, with no end in sight. Elminster was originally thought to have been destroyed, but when he later reappeared it became apparent that he had merely been transported to another plane of existence for a time.
When asked if he was interested in learning sorcery, Elminster refused, hating all mages because of the magelords. Return to the Novels Page.
