Overview

Here David Eddings continues his bestselling The Malloreon, taking the quest across a strange continent and among stranger peoples struggling over the religion of a dead God. A story of ancient, opposing Destinies, battling for control of all men.

Zandramas had stolen King Garion’s infant son and fled to use the child in some ritual that would make the Dark Destiny supreme. Garion and his friends had followed, but now they were captives of Zakath, Emperor of Mallorea, who, while friendly, stubbornly refused to let them leave.

Meanwhile, a horde of demons was ravaging the cities through which they must travel. Zandramas was escaping further toward her goal. And the Seeress of Kell revealed that they must be at the ancient palace of Ashaba within a matter of days or Zandramas would win by default. Then a horrible, fatal plague struck the city of Mal Zeth, closing it against all traffic in or out.

The banter is starting to wear thin, the tension is beginning to sag and the sense of tension inherent in the story is dissipating fast in the face of a great deal of unnecessary padding. More than half this book could easily disappear with no impact whatsoever on the plot or characterisation.

See my review for Guardians of the West.

This entire series is wonderful. One of the earlier "young boy discovers that he's more than he was led to believe" stories. A classic in the fantasy genre that pulls you into a great read.

Belgarion and company continue their quest to rescue Geran from Zandramas. However, prophecy is forcing the group to complete very specific tasks before the final encounter between Belgarion and Zandramas can occur.This book fell kind of flat fore me. A majority of the novel is spent "wandering" the country side to fulfill elements of prophecy, There are some great battles and the characters continue to be interesting, but I am ready to fast forward to the final confrontation.

This book picks up right where book 3 left off. Same characters, same mission, though in different countries, and with new people to meet. Its still not quite obvious what's going to happen, which keeps this interesting enough to read, and Eddings is still developing the characters. As the middle book of a 5 book series, this one manages to hold up better than most.

This was my 1st David Eddings novel. It was good, but I think I definetly need to read the other books in the series. It was a tad confusing, but the characters were well formed.

I Belieive that this book is the best one in the Mallorean series. Its explores the newfound friendship between Garion and Zakath, develops interesting action between main characters and new characters. I'd reccomend it to anyone. HOwever, one must read books 1 and 2 before getting the priveledge of reading book three.
