Publisher's Summary

Elminster Returns!

Elminster Must Die is the debut 4th edition appearance of one of the Forgotten Realms world’s most iconic characters, written by the creator of the original Forgotten Realms campaign setting. An instant classic, and a must-listen for every Realms fan.

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!!

Mystra's chosen never give up

Elminster reduced to a state he can barely keep going on yet still he strives to meddle for the good of the realms while evil seemingly has gained dominion. And yet, dare ye underestimate him?

Best passionate narrator performance I've heard.

Ed Greenwood has crafted another tale of adventure with a good dose of wit and intrigue. Michael McConnohie did a superb performance. At times I was amazed in delight by his passionate. I had few good laughs too. It's evident the narrator enjoyed the story as much as he did reading it.
