Elminster the mage descends into the depths of Hell from which it will take all of his powers to escape
When an ancient evil banishes Elminster to the depths of the Nine Hells, his earthly powers diminsh, reducing him to one of the many lost souls of the inferno. Elminster, Sage of Shadowdale, Chosen of Mystra, faces his most desperate struggle yet—to remember himself and to cling to his very sanity—
as all of the forces of evil rally against him.
Told with the spirit of adventure typical of the Forgotten Realms series, Elminster in Hell is both an epic quest and a profound story of one man's memories and his desperation for a future.
