The story is at bit slow at times but once it gets into the meat of the excitement, it really gets moving and I found it hard to put the book down at times. Ed Greenwood was initially a writer for TSR, the company that developed and marketed the first ever roleplaying game, Dungeons and Dragons. Why or why not? Every aspect of this novel and the subsequent novels in the first and additional series are exceptional listening.
More from the same Author: What made the experience of listening to The Temptation of Elminster the most enjoyable? Thanks for telling us about the problem.

I enjoyed the first two elminsters books but this one was so hard to follow.
I don’t really remember the sequence of events after this.
Elminster: The Making of a Mage
John Pruden did an excellent job with the countless voices and narration. Preview — Elminster by Ed Greenwood. Thanks to audio books I get too catch up on some 011 that I’ve been putting off for awhile now.
And to be honest, there wasn’t as much history in it as I was hoping for. Making of a Mage was much much better.
