Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Eddings begins his new Elenium series in a world that has different names but much the same feel as those of his bestselling Belgariad and Malloreon series. Fans will find themselves back in step as the Pandion knight Sparhawk sets off to find a cure for his poisoned Queen Ehlana. PW praised Eddings's ``graceful, fluid style of storytelling.'' (July)
Library Journal
A young queen's life and a country's future lie in the balance as an exiled Pandion knight, a Styric ``witch,'' an aging squire, and a mysterious child begin a long and arduous trek through foreign lands in search of an elusive cure for an unknown disease. The author of the popular ``Belgariad'' and ``Malloreon'' series draws once more on his particular strengths, combining heroic yet humorous characters with exotic settings and tangled politics to create a fast-moving fantasy that will appeal to his large readership. Highly recommended.-- JC
