I've also read all of David Eddings book, well exept the sci-fi ones. I'm a fantasy lover to the core and read very few I didn't like. I'll admit I only picked this one up because of who wrote it, but I enjoyed it all the same. I myself have to disagree with anyone who says it's not original. I found it refreshing both for fantasy and Eddings. I will agree that it lacked detail, but I've always been one to take things simple before complication. After all I only made it to book 5 of the Wheel of Time before both the romantic plot and the detail started to give me a foul taste in my mouth. And from what I've heard and read, it only got worse on both counts. I think anyone who is a true fantasy lover understands that all fantasy simply brakes down to the battle of good and evil. And the road an author takes you on can't always be original, but can be interesting nun the less. Eddings takes us into a world seen throw the eyes of gods. I believe that alone is a huge start to originality. And while the gods aren't all powerfull, as one would expect gods to be, and there need for human help to defeat a common enemy is typical Eddings, it didn't make the book any less enjoyable for me. I look foward to reading the next three books and any other fantasy series Eddings comes out with.

I love all of David Eddings other books and series and have read and reread them many times, but this book was horrible. I read this one and part of the second but could not go on. Horrible characters, horrible story line which was hard to follow and even harder to get into. Please write something approaching the level of the Belgariad or Mallorean those series were awesome. David eddings is one of my favorite authors, but if I had found this series first I would never have read the others. If you haven't read his other series, you really should. Don't give up on the author just because of this horrible series.

    Blast you, Eddings! :(

    This was a good thriller although there are slight familiarities from Eddings' other books. Not a lot and it didn't ruin the book... - If you like Eddings' books you will enjoy this. I say 'Blast you, Eddings!' because I was jumpin around enjoyin my book and then he just.. STOPPED IT!!! IT was an okay place to stop but it bugged me. :(

    This book by Eddings is one of his better books, if you have read the Mallorean or Belgariad series. You will most def. see similarities between those series and this new one. If you haven't read the Mallorean or Belgariad, this is still a great book. I await the next book eagerly.
