There is no greater blasphemy than this...Whether the Lady of the Weave heard and assisted him or not, life ahead was not going to be pleasant for Elminster Aumar.

There is no greater blasphemy than this...Whether the Lady of the Weave heard and assisted him or not, life ahead was not going to be pleasant for Elminster Aumar. He was going to have to spend all of his magic healing this rift, for the love of Toril that so seldom loved him, be burned and blasted in the doing, perhaps fail and be torn apart - and if he succeeded, his reward would be to plunge at the last down into Avernus, bereft of spells and defenseless. Yet his duty was clear. Hell thirsts for power, and what power the great Elminster holds. What a prize this mighty soul must be. To what depths will the malevolent forces of the inferno sink to gain that prize? How deep is Hell?

    wizardly fan

    Although I am a big fan of ed greenwood's, I had trouble getting through this book. I've read the previous elminster novels, all were very good and hard to put down, but this one didn't cut it for me, the story line was a little confusing, requiring you to know quite a bit about the rest of the forgotten realms universe to get all the flashes and cuts in and out of the main story line, and the scenes in hell got to be a little tedious.

    Just a cut and past

    I read all of the Elminster books prior to this one. When I purchased it I hope for more of his wit and magic to take me into this world of fantasy. I was disappointed the book is a compulaiton of scenes, phrases and script from all the previous books for at least 3/5's of the book - that was as far as I could go before dedicating the book to my fireplace

    Great book by Ed Greenwood, very engaging.

    This book from the series is a must read due to the information it gives you about the adventures of Elminster. It explains alot of the characters that will appear in later books. I thought that Ed Greenwood's style of showing what was happening in a mind was quite creative and well placed. The story was made up of multiple section but flowed very well into the next. The way that Ed Greenwood showed a large amount of time and adventures into a single book was quite ingenius though I did wish that he made entire books out of some of the tales. Overall a great read that explains who Elminster is better than most.

    Another wildly fantastical book from Ed Greenwood.

    This particular book takes a bit more concentration to read, as it skips from first person to third person throughout the entire book. All in al it was well worth the read.

    Another Fascinating book about Elminster

    I found this book very interesting. I could not put the book down. It keep me interested to find out what Nergal had in store next for Elminster. What next Elminster would do to protect himself and Mystra. Enjoyed this book.

    THE BEST ELMINSTER YET!

    Elminster lands in hell. This book starts of with the action as soon as it starts off! He's fighting devils and then he goes to transform himself into a rock...to be find by Nergal, a demon who slowly takes all of Elminster's memories.
