Overview

Elminster Returns!

Elminster Must Die is the debut 4th edition appearance of one of the Forgotten Realms® world’s most iconic characters, written by the creator of the original Forgotten Realms campaign setting. An instant classic, and a must-read for every Realms fan.
 
When the goddess of magic was murdered, Elminster’s world shattered. Once the most powerful wizard in the world, immortal, beloved of the goddess of magic, and the bane of villainy, he is now a tired old man. He is powerful but mortal, and with all the enemies a man who makes a habit of saving the world tends to accumulate. To make matters worse, Elminster has needs—feeding powerful magic items to the Simbul, his lover, is the only thing that keeps her sane—but their increasingly risky collection leads his enemies right to him.

    Was it worth the read.

    I have read all of the other books chronicling the adventures of Elminster.
    I must say, this was quite a let down from the other tomes.
    The book had great detail until ~ the last 40 pages.
    Almost too much that made parts of it hard to get through.
    It seemed disjointed and jumped from character to character.
    Parts of important conversations seem to have been left out as well.
    (Probably to bring some 'stunning' revelation of insight in the next book.
    The last 40 pages or so really seemed cut short. The stories jumped from one location to the next with no real explanation.
    This definitely did not seem like the El of old.

    I also read all of the other review posted under this title/paperback.
    It seems they were reviewing other books or just the author. Something wrong with the Barnes and Noble association with the correct book?

    slow but satisfying

    A slow book, and frustrating at times for traditional Elminster fans, but the ending is great and made me want to read Bury Elminster Deep asap!
