Okay, this is when Eddings started to just get silly.
Leaving his home behind in search of a cure to a disease that threatens to destroy his village, he And there was a lot of humorous dialogue. Aoife Some, but it’s not explicit. Queen Ehlana has been encased in diamond by magic performed by Sephrenia, the Styric tutor of magic to the Pandion Knights.
He is a steadfast friend, he shows kindness to eddingx in need. Sparhawk, Pandion Knight and the Queen’s champion, returns to his native land to find it overrun with evil and intrigue – and his young Queen grievously ill.

I liked this trilogy better than the sequel trilogy. Aug 03, Kristen rated it it was ok. It’s derivative of previous fantasy works. In my opinion so does Tolkien and Erikson and that this simply is the fantasy genre written through western-eyes.
As a result, I kept reading because I was curious eddints what happened, not because I really cared or worried for any of the characters.

Mar 26, Jen rated it really liked it. It made reading their dialogue a bit hard, because they all speak the same way.
The lore of Bhelliom was all over the place, with no real example of its power. D Though this is not to say that The Diamond Throne is not completely packed out with events and world building you can see why three books were needed to get this world started!
The characters grow as the story does and the sense of progression is impressive. Looking for More Great Reads? Sparhawk, presumably in his mid 20s, and a child that he raised were supposed to be in love with each other? Loved Sparrowhawk and Faron. I finished this series today,I liked it.
The creatures are also more interesting. This is the edxings of a new edding series and I am not as hooked as I was with the prior series of his. On the one hand, I want to give credit to Eddings for trying to write this.

Unfortunately, when returning the symbolic ring of the monarchy to her, she, perhaps deliberately, mistakes his action for a marriage proposal. Sparhawk is essentially a good, honest, honorable guy, but he’s also ruthless and willing to look first in his scabbard for the solution to his problems. I only gave it four stars because I felt the second book started off eddingx. He was flushing the fuel tank of the car with water when he lit a piece of paper and threw into the puddle to test if it was still flammable.
I didn’t remember the big reveal near the end and was surprised all over again. Read it Forward Read it first. Jun 08, Stephen Stewart rated it really liked it.
I read this as a year old and noticed it even then. Just not as gripped by this as I was before with eddings.
