After Making ov a Mage I just didn’t bother reading the rest of the Elminster saga. But this is only the beginning of his discoveries. Elmihster you’re not naturally good with remembering names easily especially elves names then you might want to try to find a way to track different characters.
It’s like all of the actually important events that happen do so outside of the books; probably because if El was there he would have fixed everything. The book for me really didn’t have any slow or dry passages; it was fun and good from beginning to end.
I would recommend this novel to all who enjoy Fantasy and novels set in the Forgotten Realms. It feels like a chore.

Story of El is always great. I gave this book the good old college try, but I couldn’t finish it. You can help by adding to it. Thanks for telling us elminsteg the problem. It was a fun ride listening to this book. Hero was the final book for Drizzt and I was left wanting more forgotten Realms Love El, Classic to me. Even for a relatively unknown book the quality put into this audiobook is way below acceptable.
Narrator needed to break up the different scenes better. A definitive piece of Forgotten Realms literature, and the wondrous beginnings of one of the greatest characters the realms have ever produced. Not until a chance encounter with a beautiful, sorrowful woman, who bears a magical crystal staff, draws the elminsetr deeper into the shadows, forever changing their lives and shaping the fate of the world.
