I feel like it's important to say that the four star rating is relative. I'm rating this book against other books by Ed Greenwood, not judging it on the same level as, say, Tolkien...or any other fantasy author for that matter...

It's been a long time since I gave Greenwood a four star review, but in this book he actually played up his strong points...he told a VERY nonliner story through Elminster's memories. He jumped from point of view to point of view. There were at least five climaxes and no real resolutions. But in this story it kind of worked because the reader understands that Greenwood is just pulling together a bunch of small stories from Elminster's mind....when he does this in his other books, it is incredibly annoying, but here it's okay.

Still, this is not the best work and it took me a long time to get through it.
