A Greenwood novel Par Excellence . . . .
on 13 July 2000
This book has to be one of the richest and most most diverse of Ed Greenwoods many Forgotten Realms novels. The character of Elminster has everything you expect from a wise sage doing his Goddesses bidding - walking into traps willingly - excellent stuff !
Additionally, the fully fleshed out elven race here has much to commend it. It shows openly that even amongst the elves there is individual hatreds and bitterness - not the more usual holier than thou kind.
The magic in the book is strong and sure of itself and doesn't go out of its way to swamp the storyline too much !
An Excellent book well worth the purchase !
