Seriously, either Ed Greenwood has way too much time on his hands, or people will simply read anything.

And even then, it’s rather anti-climactic. Ed Greenwood is a prolific writer with an excellent style, and I absorbed each of his Elminster novels, soaking in the superb storytelling strengths this author brings to the table.

I have also learned that high fantasy really isn’t my thing. At this point, of course, it is much to late to protest that it is a Bad Book, that it is Written Very Poorly, that I find it Profoundly Stupid – because I was caught reading it rather than caught pitching it disgustedly against the wall.

Needless to say, Greenwood never actually took my idea up. So maybe it’s not the books fault, it’s just not my cup of tea. He meets elminsteer soldier or mercenary or something, who gruffly tells him a bit about his heritage. Based upon other books from them I generally enjoy the story.

From the way he reads, I have to assume he elmlnster reading the book version and just found it too boring. There he dwelt for 12 summers and more, studying with many mighty mages, learning to feel magic and know how it could be bent and directed to his will Flee the palace, run back to the palace.

After enjoying the previous two books, I expected to like this one also. So, keeping that in mind, I liked the book very much. No trivia or quizzes yet.

Whatever he decides, the Realms will be forever changed…. I might be a bit ADD and missed some of the bits linking the fragmented stories in this book or it could be the core story was just diluted by the meaningless noise around it. I will probably check out some of Greenwood’s newer Forgotten Realms books, but I don’t think I’ll be continuing the Elminster legacy.

Only fools obey the nearest priest. But she is hunted now and has to be carful Just in the nick of time, the law comes in and puts a stop to the situation. I think Ed had a great concept I had high hopes for this book.

Couldn’t save book If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Temptation of Elminster? He says that he is now an heir to the thrown and his uncle will want him dead. Characters are all over the place.

I tried to push past it but only read a few more chapters before I began to skim. Good book it was a little scattered but overall elmiinster great story highly recommend for those who love the Forgotten Realms Universe. Took me long enough. In a way it can be considered civilised and barbaric, but even then that is a misnomer because it depends on one’s point of view.

The Temptation of Elminster

Best book that I’ve read I mean listened to in a while. Apr 20, Librivore rated it did not like it. Then they get attacked. Then a wizard, elmonster to some onclave of wizardry magelordsswoops down on a red dragon and kills him so they thought. That I’ve been putting off for awhile now. The characters felt flat, especially the main character who goes on through multiple books to have many an adventure.

Even for a relatively unknown book the quality put into this audiobook is way below acceptable. I wish a few more of ye would give it a little.

It would only ruin the listening journey.
