Summary

A woman scorned...

All her life, Narnra of Waterdeep wondered who her father is. Amid the squalor of the streets, through the danger she faces daily as a thief in the City of Splendors, she speculates on whom the mysterious wizard might be who left her mother to raise a fatherless child.

Now she's discovered that it's no less a person than Elminster of Shadowdale, mightiest mage in all Faerian. And her anger is as boundless as his power.

Very surprised. Not in a good way.

Maybe this was an author who was bored and wanted to give something new a try. Ed Greenwood bleeds Forgotten Realms. Elminster has been a favorite of mine for a very long time. This style of writing was just painful to read. Trying to capture an old English style, I was left scratching my head at the descriptions of settings and what the characters were doing. I actually started to read the book first. Then, I thought I would try the audible version, hoping the narrator could bring some life to it.
The narrator is not good. He is at the mercy of the writing, but I felt like he was reading ingredients instead of a story.

Follow the bouncing storyline...

Was difficult keeping up with all the side events, and a trudge to work thru the building plots.
