Elminster Must Die Audiobook

Elminster Must Die: Forgotten Realms: The Sage of Shadowdale, Book 1

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.

    "Elminster Audible"

    I have read 3 Elminster books and I love them all. Ed Greenwood is a wonderful writer and I will always want more of his readings. I just finished Elminster must die Audible and I think I may have to listen to it again. I'm afraid I may have missed some parts so some of the story didn't make since to me. At the same time I think I may have missed a book. Some of the characters I didn't know who they were. I didn't know he had a daughter and I didn't know he had a girlfriend. I have some reading to do. Over all I love this book!!

    "Hard Listen"
    What disappointed you about Elminster Must Die?

    Not sure I can finish - dragging - same old


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Shelter Mountain


    Would you be willing to try another one of Michael McConnahie’s performances?

    Not sure


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I can stand to finish - tough listen -
