The journey of books david eddings wrote is one of favorite all time adventures.

Books like this have changed in recent years - good guys and good and bad - Bad guys are bad and good but is the is book Sapphire rose the good guys are good and the bad guys are straight up bad-The adventure is straight up and flows brilliantly.

Some people appear to criticse the book as your typical hero vs villian but it so much more - Make sure you read this book and the other books in the series. Wish i could read them again for the first time!

David Eddings Sappire Rose

Part of the Sparhawk 1st trilogy.

A fine read in which I enjoyed the interplay and humor between the characters.

I feel it's a romp into the Ecclesiastical era of Europe. With the main character Sparhawk being Queens champion and a member of fighting arm of a relgious oreder. State against Church politics

Classic reading and it's free. Gotta love Kindle! I am no longer able to read "real" books due to a lung condition (dust, mould etc) so Kindle has allowed me to re read some old favourites. Eddings was and is one of the best fantasy authors. Story lines to keep you gripped and you go back for.

I did enjoy this book, BUT...

The Sapphire Rose is a classic fantasy tale with heroic knights, evil villains and a Queen who knows her own mind. The good guys win and the bad guys lose... too easily - and that is why I've only given it 3 stars - the good guys face a challenge... and overcome it far too quickly, whilst observing that when one does "action A" we find that people usually opt for "response B". There were no moments where I felt concerned that things were going to go seriously wrong, hence I was never on the edge of my seat. For 99% of the book, the heroes seemed to hardly break a sweat (except for the one moment where it felt that something tragic had to be there).

My other gripe is what I call the AI ending (the last 3/4 hour of the AI film where I wanted to gnaw my arm off). Just when you think the story is done (our hero returns...), it is not. I thought the last chapter was pointless - "everyone is a bit down, but luckily the Goddess saves the day!".

This is the third and final book of the Elenium and worth reading to see the adventure through to the end, but I think when it is over, you might be left feeling a little disappointed.

I enjoyed this, the final episode of the Elenium trilogy. Eddings is a good story teller with a wonderful imagination. Despite the setting being very similar to the world in the Belgarion and Mallorean, he continues to find new and interesting obstacles for the band of adventurers to tackle. I particularly liked the maze section. Eddings also revealed a talent for politics and court intrigue which would not be out of place in The Game of Thrones, which he had not displayed before. The writing is clear and descriptive yet the action moves along at a good pace.

It may not have been the earth-shattering series I was hoping for, but it was nonetheless a consistently diverting chronicle (if a little drawn-out at times) with a vibrant array of characters and exquisitely flowing prose from a master of the genre.

But in truth, I don't know what to make of this book. Rating it is really difficult. On the one hand `The Sapphire Rose' rolls along at a good, solid pace and is unquestionably a satisfying conclusion to the Elenium Trilogy, but on the other hand the Eddings' style of writing almost works against itself here by creating too much ease and friendliness between the characters (no matter what side they happen to be on), thereby detracting from all the brutal descriptions of impending doom, religious fanaticism and all the various horrors of war, which are the familiar themes that every Eddings fan will by now be very well accustomed to.

Thankfully though this final part of the trilogy is not as infuriating as the previous two- the sarcastic remarks have been significantly toned down in comparison to the first story in the trilogy `The Diamond Throne' and the storyline here is nowhere near as infuriating as that of the previous story `The Ruby Knight'. About the only aspect of the writing that really grated as I read `The Sapphire Rose' was the cringeful and criminally over-used term of endearment, which ALL the male characters (whether on the side of good or evil) use to address one another. If I have to read "Old boy" one more time, I don't know what I'll do!

As a past lover of Eddings' Belgariad and Mallorean series I'd probably characterise myself as still being a fan of the works of David and Leigh Eddings, despite since reading examples of the genre that have (in my view) surpassed their stories.

The Eddings managed to almost match the Belgariad/Malloreon series in The Elenium - an interesting new world, and some good characters, without too much ressemblance to the previous work. The story ends with a bit of a whimper - too much divine intervention.
