Who dared slay a Chosen of Mystra?

He had not felt that sudden tingling stealing into him for years, had not thought to ever feel it again.

The silver fire.

Mystra's divine fire was flowing into him from somewhere nearby, somewhere in the shattered citadel!

He felt invigorated, stronger than ever. Well, of course he would, with this new fire in him — but he had to know who was

The whole book is just boring, written without any creativity

Typical Greenwood starts of slow gets exciting here and there and slows way down to build to a fantastic ending that's worth the read.

It was good

I just thought the author was all over the place so many different stories that didn't really has anything to do with the main story line.

Elminster Enraged is the third book in Ed Greenwood’s Sage of Shadowdale series. It follows the arch wizard Elminster’s experiences after the death of the Goddess of Magic, Mystra, and the spread of the Spellplague, which renders magic a dangerous and unreliable force. Though no fourth book appears to have been announced yet, the story is such that I imagine another is forthcoming.

This guy just can’t catch a break

This book was kind of a muddle, and it is only partially the authors fault. Wizards of the Coast thrust the Spellplague onto the Forgotten Realms authors without their permission or voice, and this book mostly seems trying to hit the reset button on the changes that reboot forced on him. Elminister is as entertaining to read as always, but his descendant Arune and her paramour Arclath feel tacked onto the story like a after thought or dangling thread. Mirt's storyline seems similarly pointless ( ...more

Ed Greenwood writes an excited conclusion to the Sage of Shadowdale series. The story picks up right were Bury Elminster Deep ended. The story continues with a focus on a Cormyrian prison holding traitorous nobles. Like the other books in the series, the narrative jumps a lot, from character to character, to seemingly random noble. This can sometimes make the narrative hard to follow, but Ed makes it work in the end as you see all the jumble begin to take shape in the second half of the book and ...more

There's a good story buried in here somewhere. Sad that you have to filter it out of all the nonsense. Smashing a keyboard to come up with names is simply lazy (let's not get started on the huge cast of characters for such a small book). You can't pass off random letters as words just because it's a fantasy setting. Fake curse words are just that, fake. Real curses are based in reality, they're not simply syllables that sound good together, they're based of societal taboos and animosity. Pray te ...more

The first two books in this series didn't do too much for me. I felt Greenwood's penchant for a lot of background characters with weird names ran amok and detracted from the story a bit too much. Thankfully, he reined that tendency in a lot for this book, and it's much stronger for it. the focus is on Elminster and the people helping him, as well as his enemies. While there are a few asides with background characters, by the end of the story almost all of them have tied into the plot instead of ...more

This was quicker paced than some previous Elminster books, which I appreciated, while still having the characteristics you would associate with Greenwood's writing. It wrapped up a lot of things from the trilogy of which it is a part, going from Cormyr in a state of civil war to a shaky detente. A lot more happens than in a normal book, and when I finished it, I was ready to read the next one, rather than wanting to take a break, which recommends it quite a bit.

Another solid tale by Ed Greenwood. I miss the days before the spell plague and to see an old school character show the new world whats what was fun to read.

Not that great to start, Elminster is kind of lame, other characters are very lacking, story just isn't that great. Last chapter manages to save it though.
