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 !

The book was good reading, but I found the magic in it confusing at times. The way the spells worked and the way Elminster often could trick mages, by using it in weird ways without explanation of how he did it. But for anyone who likes Elminster (like me) the book is a good read and supplies info on Elminster early adventures.

I am a die hard R. A. Salvatore Reader. Compared to his latest books I am missing something while reading Ed Greenwood. I read all 4 of his Elminster books and wasn't drawn as I was with the Salvatore books.

Again Ed Greenwood surprised me by his vivid imagination of Magic and wonders. If you love magic. You will live this book
