More About the Author

David Eddings (1931-2009) published his first novel, High Hunt, in 1973, before turning to the field of fantasy with the Belgariad, soon followed by the Malloreon. Born in Spokane, Washington, and raised in the Puget Sound area north of Seattle, he received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Reed College in Portland, Oregon, in 1954, and a master of arts degree from the University of Washington in 1961. He served in the US Army, worked as a buyer for the Boeing Company, and was both a grocery clerk and a college English teacher. He lived in Nevada until his death, at the age of 77.

This book is a brilliant sequel to The Diamond Throne and carries on the story well. David Eddings has a unique style of writing which is both easy and fun to read. So far I have read almost all of David Eddings' books and enjoyed them all, however the Elenium and the Tamuli are my favourite series possibly because I read them before I read the Belgariad and the Mallorean. I'd recommend this book to anyone, not just Eddings fans and I would also suggest that you try all of his other books.
Happy reading!

This is great follow-up to the Diamond Throne, read it ages ago, but going through his trilogies again as part of my 'much loved' books. Love his style and ability to describe characters. Coincidently, does anyone know when this book will be available on Kindle?

Format: Paperback
This trilogy is definitely shaping up not to be as daunting as either the Belgariad or Mallorean series by the same author, but unfortunately it remains considerably lacking in comparison to those excellent series. But being a David Eddings novel...there's much here to satisfy the casual fantasy reader. The enjoyable prologue teases with themes that will develop in this story (as is so often this authors custom) and very soon the reader's also up to speed with the events that unfolded in the trilogy-opener 'The Diamond Throne,' which all prepares you for another satisfying, if somewhat unchallenging continuation of the Elenium series.

The prose of this middle book in the trilogy once more has an enchanting cadence that makes the plot less a chore than it would if written by another fantasy author. But on the downside- the characters don't develop at all in this story, we learn very little more about their history or personalities and so each remains as two-dimensional as always. Consequently, I suppose it's all credit to the author that the reader still invests emotion in the adventures of the protagonists and doesn't succeed in repressing unnecessary concern for their welfare- this book has an excellent writing-style and the story here is dependable and intriguing enough to keep the reader engrossed throughout.

Personally I still find the hierarchy of the characters and the political situation of this world less involving than the previous series developed by Eddings, both of which had familial relationships at their heart and explored the conflict that arose from that close association on a similar journey to save the world. Events do however move along at a great pace in this book- there's no time to get bored.

Continues flawlessly over from the first instalment and the story just gets better. Can't wait to get to number three for the finale.
