3.0 out of 5 stars Long awaited..., 17 July 2003

This review is from: The Elder Gods (Hardcover)
As a huge fan of the Eddings previous work I was very excited to get my copy of the Elder Gods. It had all the hallmarks of a good Eddings book, God, family, loyalty, fight against evil and colourful characters.
There are many characters which are shadows of the Belgariad and Malloreon, Rabbit & Silk and Longbow & Hetter for example, also a touch of Polgara in Zelana. As a big fan of those original characters I don't mind that they are reincarnated in this new book. However, I do hope that they will evolve into their own persona, otherwise David and Leigh should have just written another series with Garion and Co.
I like the way you get right into the action, without having to read through pages of background. The story builds and you learn the background information from the characters themselves. As an impatient person, I found this writing style perfect for me.
I look forward to the next installments, although to be honest, it's not worth buying the expensive hardback (unless you got a discount like me) borrow it or wait for the paperback.
