Publisher's Summary

It is the time of the great elven city of Cormanthor, when the Heartlands are home to barbarians, wicked dragons rule the skies, and the elven people trust no one. Wizards and warriors alike threaten their civilization in vain, arrogant, and ignorant quests for glory.

Thus it was that Elminster was guided to Cormanthor, the Towers of Song, where Eltargrim was Coronal. There he dwelt for 12 summers and more, studying with many mighty mages, learning to feel magic and know how it could be bent and directed to his will.... It is recorded that when the Mythal was laid, and Cormanthor became Myth Drannor, Elminster was among those who devised and spun that mighty magic.

    Story
    "Really Nice"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Elminster in Myth Drannor to be better than the print version?

    I think John Pruden is one of the best narrators for Forgotten Realms. He slow diliberate approach sounds really good. Especially, coming from hearing his Erevis Cale work. I willing seek out his and Bevine's work.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Elminster in Myth Drannor?

    It was quick but seeing how Cormanthyr actually became Myth Drannor. I didn't have a full grasp except that the Elf were running the joint.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Favorite scene was Elminster walking into another Wizard's domain and wrecking shop. Made El seem like a bad ass.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The Trials of Elminster. It really is that. He continues to grow and learn from the guidance of Mystra.


    Any additional comments?

    I truly didn't think I would like this book in the series. I did not have an affinity for Myth Drannor because we all kind of knew what was going to happen in the end... making of the weave. But, sometimes the journey is greater than the destination and this was the case.

    "Great Book! Elminster in Myth Drannor"
    Have you listened to any of John Pruden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Oky Doky, Elminster: The Making of a Mage: Forgotten Realms: Elminster, Book 1 was a so so reading by John Pruden, but in book 2 of this series he got into it and did a much better job. not Outstanding, but I think he did a much better reading this time, lets hope Book 3 of the series is the smack down winner!


    Any additional comments?

    Just about one of the best series of books from the Forgotten Realms books. not a lot to say except it will be worth every penny of any amount you pay for this series IMO

    "great performance, kinda ok story."

    The narrator was absolutely amazing. I love hearing him breath live into all of the exotic races.

    The story however was alittle lacking coming from the first book. Very interesting in the beginning. Once you get towards the end it is rather lack luster. You really can't tell that the story is almost over unless you check the time stamp. The amount of build up is ridiculous, and in the end it practically lead to nothing.

    Overall, still a decent book, but a struggle a times.

    "I pronounce this story ridiculous"

    I might have been able to stand this as a teenager, but the plot holes and excesses are just too much. The narrator is pretty good though.

    "Elminster books are weird"

    The story is just bizarre, but it is at least entertaining.
    Reader mispronounces sigil and fungi, using the wrong g in each case. Otherwise, he's fantastic.
