John Pruden does an excellent job as always. It's really why I went to this series after Erevis Cale.
People say Greenwood's work can get messy. I thought the first two books were great; tightly wound stories that were easy to follow. I get it... this book was suppose to be about how others were effected by Elminster and forces. But, it was just a mess. Characters are all over the place. Not know who is with who and why people are doing what they are doing. Just a real killer. There are huge gaps with no Elminster.
Sadly, it was the very very end of the book. Literally, the last few pages.
C'mon. This would not be the book to make a movie. Period.
I would still recommend the novel but perhaps do so with a little preparation. Be prepared to look-up names online and take your time. Sometimes, I literally write down names and who they are so I can understand.
