ELMINSTER ASCENDING PDF

He is a Dungeon Master, Forgotten Realms fan, aspiring writer and high school student in that order. We welcome his latest contribution and hope you enjoy his review of the Ed Greenwood Omnibus: Elminster Ascending. For most of the first novel, Elminster abhorred magic and all who used it, hunting and killing many of them. He ran into the Magister early on and was awed by the power that magic could bring, but his mind was yet to be changed. The later two novels deal with Elminster apprenticing himself to various other Mages and Sorcerers, and occasionally only being beholden to Mystra, the goddess of magic herself.

I have read other books set in the Forgotten Realms, and find the world itself very interesting.

The material presented about the character this series is about is engaging in the gaming source books, so I wanted to learn a bit more about his background and story. Unfortunately I found the books to be a bit of a let down. The first of the 3, Elminster - The Making of a So I went into reading these books this is a collection of the first 3 books about this character hoping to really enjoy it. The story starts out interestingly enough, a dragon and mage destroying a city and the child vowing to get revenge, but the story had a tendency to meander most of the time until suddenly the big bad reveals themselves and the story ends.

A lot of effort goes into describing his life during these times, and they piece together in the end, but weakly. I finished the book feeling less like I had read a cohesive story with a beginning, middle, and end, and more like I had read a random journal indicating "Well, I did this for a while and that got old, then went to do that and finally figured I would do this.

The next book in the series, Elminster in Myth Drannor, was a big better in that regard. It seemed more cohesive through out and there was a clear goal in mind from early on, but it still suffered from jumping from story to story. You also end up with a big of character flip-flop at times. One elven elder tells his house not to attack El because he will destroy them and bring dishonor on him, and when they ignore him and his predictions come true he swears to hunt Elminster down and kill him, making you wonder if he was lying earlier or if you missed something.

The last book, The Temptation of Elminster, takes place years later. It starts out with Elminster having been caught in a trap for that time and you know nothing of what happened between the last two, save that the city from the last book is now overrun with demons and devils. You are well into the last 4th of the book before pieces start to come close to fitting together and new characters are still being introduced.

He is purported to be the most powerful mage is all the lands, but as the story unfolds you find that his real power is being saved by luck or the goddess he serves.

In fact the 3rd book ends with someone that has been hunting Elminster to hill him killing the closest approximation to a central antagonist, and then being killed by magical backlash. As I said before, I really wanted to like these books when I started reading them and they seem to have a high score of user reviews, but after finishing the books I have to wonder if the scores are based more on the character and author than the actual content of the book.
