Afternoon all,

Having read the three RA Salvatore trilogies i'm looking for something a little different now and more magic orientated.

I understand from other threads on here that the popular choices are between Elminster and Raistlin. Both characters I would be interested in reading about, but I prefer 'realism' in my books. One of the criticisms i've seen of Greenwood is a lack of realism, so is he the only author to do a series of books on Elminster?

I'm looking for the 'coming of age' stories, so if somebody could tell me what the very first 3 books concerning both characters are that would be wonderful (cuz they're always trilogies ). I find it very difficult to tell on Amazon whether the books they're trying to flog me are the first ever books written about the character or just first in a series.

Thanks in advance, and if anybody can strongly recommend the books about one character over the other that would also be very welcome [img]smile.gif[/img]

Thanks Winterfox, just read Soulforge and it was exactly what I was looking for. Can't wait for the next installment, but trying to find a nice UK source, everywhere is shipping from the US! It's a real shame about Elminster because he's a fantastic character, but I do value my braincells so will steer clear for a bit [img]smile.gif[/img]

Thanks again
