Bury Elminster Deep
Bury Elminster Deep is the second book in Ed Greenwood's Sage of Shadowdale series, and was first released in August 2011.

Elminster's archenemy, the vampiric Lord Manshoon, thinks he has destroyed Elminster at last. But Elminster survives in the form of magical ash, and with the help of his scion, a fop who is growing into a true nobleman, and his longtime companion Storm, he still has a chance to counter Manshoon's insidious plots.
