Goodreads Book Review - Elminster Enraged

Elminster Enraged: The Sage of Shadowdale, Book IIIElminster Enraged: The Sage of Shadowdale, Book III by Ed Greenwood

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The first two books in this series didn't do too much for me. I felt Greenwood's penchant for a lot of background characters with weird names ran amok and detracted from the story a bit too much. Thankfully, he reined that tendency in a lot for this book, and it's much stronger for it. the focus is on Elminster and the people helping him, as well as his enemies. While there are a few asides with background characters, by the end of the story almost all of them have tied into the plot instead of distracting from it. And the ending is just explosive... literally. Lastly, it leaves the story in a good place for future installments. Hopefully there's more to come.
