Product Description

Review

Praise for David Eddings:

‘My ideal summer read… Having enjoyed the entire ten-book serial, I was delighted to be able to read this latest addition as it not only provides fantastic escapism in itself, but, being a prequel, will make my re-reading of the other books all the more fascinating.’
The Irish Times

‘All the verve and pace we’ve come to expect.’
The Dark Side

‘Offers an absorbing storyline and some memorable characters as, once again, the author touches all the right fantasy bases, with warring gods, political intrigues, supernatural creatures and appealingly human magicians involved in a titanic war over the course of seven millennia. Eddings fans will no doubt snatch this novel off the shelves while readers new to the authors’ world won’t find a more appropriate place to begin exploring it.’
Publishers Weekly

‘There’s no denying Eddings’ offerings do entertain. This novel is for fantasy fans fed up with more fusty fare, or for anyone who likes mischief and merriment.’
West Australian

About the Author

David Eddings was born in Washington State and grew up near Seattle. He graduated from the University of Washington and went on to serve in the US Army. Subsequently he worked as a buyer for the Boeing company and taught college-level English. His first novel was a contemporary adventure, but he soon began a spectacular career as a fantasy writer with his bestselling series The Belgariad.

To jump on the bandwagon with the other reviews here...

I've enjoyed David Eddings previous works and only managed to read this set of 4 books out of a sense of loyalty. I have often stated to my girlfriend that his work has gone downhill whenever he adds his wifes name to it and now that I see others sharing the opinion I feel better about thnking it! This series is dull. Had a massive potential to be as good as previous work but just didn't do it. All the characters had similar personalities (ie, none) and the humour attempt at the end of every section simply wasn't funny. Like the other reviewers I feel I may never be able to purchase new Eddings work again either. If he can do it without ruining it I say bring back Sparhawk.

I have been an ardent fan of David Eddings for years I found this book to be the worst series ending he has ever done what an anti-climax i will think very carefully before picking up his next book to read. If you are new to Eddings read all his earlier works such as Belgariad Mallorean all the sparhawk books before passing judgement on him avoid the Dreamers series at all costs

If I were 12years old again I might just have enjoyed this.

I thought it was simple reading, and filled with such repetition. Yet somehow the details that were meant to link the story together never sank in.

The characters seem to get worse the further through the series you go as well! Rather than developing the characters they all seem to meld into one character you couldnt give a damn about.

And definatly don't get me started on the ending. I read all four books hoping for some kind of redeming feature somewhere, anywhere. Suffice to say it never comes and the ending leaves you banging your head on a wall wondering why you just spent the time to ready these books.

However I stick to me original comment that they would have been a good read 10 years ago, and I possibly wouldnt be so harsh if I hadnt read the other Eddings stuff which is so much better.

I have been a fan of Eddings for more than 10 years and really enjoyed the Belgariad and Malloreon series of books.

Whilst this series started slowly I was willing to persevere in the hope that it would improve and to know how it all works out. Not wanting to give anything away, I have to say that the ending is absolutely awful and a massive anti-climax (which in a way was impressive because it would have seemed impossible to actually provide an anti-climax as my expectations for the ending where barely measurable). In addition it is completely flawed I can see a gaping hole which means the entire series makes no sense what so ever.

In short this is one of the most disappointing books I have ever read, which is inexcusable given Eddings experience as a writer and the talent he displayed earlier in his career. Avoid this series if you can, if you already own the others in the series then still avoid... unless you can't in which case lower your expectations.

Great fan of david eddings, but very dissappointed in these books. I think Leigh eddings wrote these and david just added his name to sell them, as they are not even writtern in the same style as his earlier books.

As all the other people who have posted reviews this has to be one of the worst ever series of books that i have battled through. i have been reading Science and Fantasy fiction for over 20 years and this series is just chronically bad. Earlier works were very good. May never read Eddings again if this latest series is going to be the norm. 1 star is being very generous

This series promised much from the first book. However, every book story was the same and instead of David's usual fast paced wonderful story telling magic these books were nothing more than paperbacks full of excessive padding. I notice that every time Leigh's name is associated with any of the stories the book turns out to be awful. I have read David's work from the first and only bought this series out of loyalty in the hope that Leigh would have little or no influence. Wasted my money. This will be the last time I buy any Eddings joint venture books. Don't believe me? Check the reviews for star ratings when they are together. David should get the hint by now as he will be losing droves of his fans. This whole series could have been written as one good story since every book's story line is as predictable as the first. One star is too good for this.

After reading the first three books of "the dreamers". I waited in anticipation for the final book to be released.

on reading book 4 "The Younger Gods", I soon found it a struggle to enjoy the finale of the series. it was reptitious, quickly changing from character to character without giving any substance to the characters, unlike his previous books of "the Dreamer" series. As I pressed on through the book it became harder to follow the story line and I was losing the will to live by the end of the book.

the final battle between the Gods,Avatars and humans and the queen insect "vlagh" was such a let down that you are asking when is the actual final battle going to happen i.e. vlagh v longbow. so much emphasis during the series was on the building up of one of the main characters longbow and how he was actually going out for revenge against the Vlagh for the way his childhood sweet heart had been taken away from him. what become of all the other characters after the battle?

So come on david. this is not upto the usual standard we expect from a great fantasy Author. you can and you have shown that you can do better than this book.
