Rumors race around Cormyr regarding the mythical Lost Spell, a powerful enchantment designed centuries ago by the presumed dead god of spells—a spell long thought lost to the ages. Found by some magic-less merchant, rumor has it the Lost Spell is to be auctioned off to the highest bidder. It is a powerful lure, and archwizards of every stripe descend upon the merchant, only to be trapped with him inside his manor by a vicious spellstorm—escape impossible, and their magic useless with the interference from the storm. Moreover—they find themselves faced with the infamous Elminster of Shadowdale, who claims he’s just there to decide who gets the Lost Spell, but who clearly has an agenda of his own. But before Elimster can put whatever plan he has in motion, archwizards start dying.

D&J said wizards without magic squabbling. This is literally the worst FR book I've ever read.Take a collection of stupidly over-powered characters with paper thin good guy/ bad guy characters and then strip them of the only thing interesting, their powers.Very little actually happens in the book. There's a lot of terrible humor in it.Nothing that occurs in it matters. This should. One of Greenwood's best Amazon Customer One of Greenwood's best books. Was surprised at all the known characters from the Forgotten Realms universe. I would have liked to have a glimpse of the future of some of the characters towards the end of the book. I also would have liked some of the reveals spread out a little more than wait till the last 25% of the book but that's just . Steven Lamb said Ugh Duped again. Terrible attempt at a who dun it. Only Ed Greenwood can control the most powerful wizards in the realm and write the most boring stories.
