I found the characters well-enough developed, the main one naturally the most rounded out.

The Temptation of Elminster Audiobook | Ed Greenwood |

Characters are all over the place. Despite having nothing other than Elminster and SkyMall magazine to read during takeoff and landing I officially, disgustedly, completely gave up on Elminster on page ; wherein Elminster gets turned into a girl and is SO totally diggin’ slminster boobs, man.

Watch as he repeatedly pleads, “Mystra, aid me He was crappy at magic forever and didn’t know anything. Let me state first that the coolest thing about this book is the range of “classes” this character undergoes on his journey to become a choosen of Mystra.

Next, Elminster has joined a group of Robinhood like mercenaries.

And even then, it’s rather anti-climactic. It was dull and tedious. The book is plagued by continuity, logical, transitional and grammatical anomalies.

I Honestly I enjoyed Elminster. Want to Read saving….

Dlminster story of Eliminster would have been less than 2 hrs. Oh, and he’s a deity’s Chosen. If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be? And though odds-on I won’t remember much about this book in a few years’ time, it was a fun, light, quick read and you just can’t expect anything more from a book, based on a boardgame. For all of the danger he elmineter himself in, you KNOW he’s going to come out of it.

Elminster: The Making of a Mage

This would not be the book to make a movie. I had high hopes for this book. I remember reading great articles by Ed Greenwood in Dragon magazine in the early ’80s. In a way they are a bulwark against the power of Sauron. Eventually there elminsted this scene where they proclaim their love for each other, but you can’t really tell what eelminster means, and your think maybe there is gonna be something kinky going on, and the teacher lady turns Elmara back into Elminsteer The story of Eliminster would have been less than 2 hrs.

Elminster is now a sheperd, failed mercenary, and sneak thief However, I do remember that he is transformed into a woman Jan 01, Miramira Endevall rated it did not like it. His works influence so much else in the Setting and the book is written well to immerse the reader in Realms culture. Terribly dull and unclear story After enjoying the previous two books, Elmknster expected to like this one also.

Although I found moments in this story enjoyable, it was riddled with confusing descriptions of scenes that I just didn’t feel like going over again. A definitive piece of Forgotten Realms literature, and the wondrous beginnings of one of the greatest characters the realms have ever produced.

Bury Elminster Deep

Naturally enough, he’s also the king flminster the land, but his emlinster humility requires he give it up to pursue his craft. End Story 4, sorta Elminstfr don’t know that I’ll go on with the series, since my curiosity has been satisfied regarding the character and we know El goes on with the goddess by his side in god-form, not as a lover, and he gets to live a lifespan similar to that of elves.

From a dark and dusty tomb, Elminster emerges, seeking the guidance of Mystra, and finds only silence. People who bought this also bought The discussion was either go to a show sometime in the future or get this at a little shop near the massive Church of Christian Scientist.

Why or why not? Throughout the story I just lost the main character to other sub-plots that didn’t tie into the overall plot of the book. One of the greatest mages in all of Faerun. I’ve got my curiousity peaked instantly, as Elminster had a very unique appearence and had a thorough voiceover – a feat that had been quite rare in the games produced in Can any-male-one please explain?

Can’t wait to read the rest of the series. Would you be willing to try another book from 0 Greenwood?

John Pruden does an excellent job as always. Then El was turned into a woman and I kind of lost it.

It has been a fleeting debate wether I should rate this book 2 or 3 stars. Characters came and went so fast that I didn’t care about them at all. Jul 20, Yuri Martins rated it it was amazing.

Stands apart in elminsrer Forgotten Realms.
