WAR TO THE DEATH
The Pandion Knight Sparhawk had bested the massed forces of the God Cyrgon upon the field of battle. But victory turned to ashes when the foul God's minions kidnapped Sparhawk's wife, the beautiful Queen Ehlana. Sparhawk must surrender Bhelliom, the awesome jewel of power--or Ehlana would die.
But Cyrgon's lackeys had misjudged their foe. Sparhawk fought on, and none of his companions flinched from the awesome struggle, though each must vanquish forces of evil from Tamuli's dark past, and from fetid places beyond human ken.
Still, the full magnitude of their peril was yet to be revealed...Cyrgon had dared the unthinkable: He had called forth Kleal, Bhelliom's opposite, to rend the very world asunder. Thus, as it had ever been decreed, would Bhelliom and Kleal contend for the fate of this world--even as the man Sparhawk must finally face the God Cyrgon, in mortal combat and alone...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this conclusion to the trilogy begun with Domes of Fire, Sir Sparhawk must rescue his wife, Queen Ehlana of Elenia, from the followers of the mad god Cyrgon. Her kidnapping occurs as various Church Knights and Atan troops are finishing what they believe are mopping-up operations against the enemies of the Tamuli emperor, Sarabian. Ehlana's abductor is the son of the Styric renegade masterminding a plot against the emperor. Her safe return is promised in exchange for Bhelliom, the powerful living gem responsible for the destruction of the evil god Azash. The Pandion knight Berit, disguised as Sparkhawk by a spell, moves from place to place following the kidnappers' instructions, while Sparhawk, in another guise, seeks allies, and the child-goddess Aphrael (reborn as Ehlana's and Sparhawk's daughter Danae) calls on some reluctant fellow gods to lend aid. These moves are gravely complicated by the machinations of Cyrgon, who has unleashed Klael, the ancient embodiment of evil. A new note of introspection gives a fuller dimension to Eddings's rousing adventure. (Sept.)
Library Journal
To rescue his beloved Queen from the clutches of a mad god's minions, the Pandion Knight Sparhawk confronts a monster capable of destroying his world. The conclusion to the latest series by the best-selling author of "The Belgariad" and other fantasy series promises to be a much-requested title. Libraries should purchase according to demand.

Loved all the books in series. Was sorry it had to end and very disappointed not available in Nook format.

I have read all three books in The Tamuli series several times just as I have with all of David Eddings' books. I am just a little sorry I didnt buy the entire Tamuli series in Nook while it was available. I did get the Elineum though. Since I hadthe Tamuli in paperback I put it off, now book 2, The Shing Ones is no longer available, and my paperback is falling apart! Oh well, my point is that I really like this book and have since it first came out in 1994. Read them all, starting with The Elineum series, and then The Tamuli.

Great book, been out for many years. WHY does this cost more than a brand new book?
