    Love to read Fiction books

    I liked it, but it was too much of repeation. We keep rereading the same story over and over. I understand he wanted to gave an insight for each character but he should have stopped at the part when they got hired and traveled to Dhrall. I do not care about the size of the book as long it keeps me interested in reading it. This book, I kept putting it down, unlike the first one. Never the less I'll read the third and the fourth when it comes out. I'm hooked on the story line itself.

    Not their best- but still fun

    As an avid Eddings fan for 15 years I have to say that some of the dialogue is cheap but the story is classic Eddings- rich and fun. I can't wait for the next one!

    Wonderful Read

    This series is every bit as wonderful as everything else David Eddings has come out with. Although the books start out with almost childlike simplicity, the characters and plots builds on themselves until the story is every bit as complicated and imaginative and wonderful as anyone would posibly wish. All in all, this is a fantastic and intriguing story line, and I'm eagerly awaiting the next installment.

    more from this reviewer

    action-packed fantasy

    Though triumphant in the recent battle with the malevolent insectoid Vlagh (see THE ELDER GODS), none of the victors realize that the enemy is hatching a new even deadlier plot to take over Dhrall. The tired quartet of sibling Gods succeeded in the first skirmish because they awakened early their replacement Gods, the Dreamers forged a mortal army to repel the deadly Vlagh.--- While Longbow and his hooded companions seek deserved respite in the farming communities of the south, the Vlagh creates a hideous army of gigantic bat-bugs and armored spiders that is much more powerful and deadlier than their previous horde. . At the same time that the Vlagh seems ready to win, one of the original allies Jalkan falls to gold fever. He raises an army and declares a holy war against his former compatriots while the Vlagh begin their assault. In the midst of this war, an unknown being assaults the minds of everyone from insectoid, humans, and seemingly aging and youthful Gods.--- Filled with plenty of varying action that never fully explodes, the second Dreamer tale will excite fans of the Eddings though it reads like a middle book setting up the real adventure. The Elder Gods remain intriguing as their skills continue to wane while the Dreamers wonder if it is their time now albeit a bit early. The interesting Jalkan spin divides the solidarity of the allied forces, but competes for depth with the Vlagh war and other subplots. Still epic fantasy readers will enjoy the latest entry that spirals in several potentially enjoyable different directions setting up what should prove to be a spike of a third novel.--- Harriet Klausner
