And yet, it isn’t quite perfect.

A really fun Fantasy novel with great characters, world and sense of adventure. This series is action packed and often quite gorey. And the worldbuilding is just sloppy.

The Diamond Throne

wddings Okay, as I’ve mentioned that this authorcreates outstanding fantasy worlds, with indepth cultures, politics, and religions. The Bhelliom the magic jewel they spend the first two books questing for changes origin and powers every fifty pages. Mine is an old library copy from cassette tapes.

There’s not much point in addressing them as individual volumes, because it’s basically one long adventure. The trilogy pretty much reads like Eddings sat down one day, started at the beginning, and shipped each chapter off without ever reading it eleniuj.

If that’s what Eddings was going for, that last chapter could have been left out entirely. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.

Whereas the third book feels much more solid and deals with politics and davjd strategy. They created pictures in my head that made me want to learn more and more about their characters. By a slightly odd mixture davjd subtlety and brute force, they gain access to the inner room – but not without the loss of Kurik, Sparhawk’s squire and friend. I finally gave in and traded my used hardcovers for this single-volume version just to save some shelf space, but I’ve read these books probably a dozen times each – so this is a very jaded review.


Jul 15, Jacob rated it liked it Shelves: Elfnium few years pass by and Sparhawk finds out his one and only daughter, Princess Danae is actually a goddess.

It’s derivative of previous fantasy works. Thankfully, this series didn’t have the horrible, seemingly never-ending repetition of main events as The Elder Godsotherwise I’d have never finished it!

The Diamond Throne (The Elenium, #1) by David Eddings

Overall, if you are a fan of Tolkien-esque epic fantasy I would recommend this book. Sparhawk is my hero, eleniu Faran slenium And filled with disparaging and unnecessary references toward women.

Sparhawk decides, after consultation with his superiors in the Church, to take Bhelliom and travel to Zemoch with several others, with the intention of destroying Azash. I’ve always been a sucker for quest narratives, and following Sparhawk to restore Queen Ehlana and stop a dark god was very entertaining. No trivia or quizzes yet. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. But it’s not ALL bad, and those interested in the history of the genre may find it worth the trouble, although I’d hardly go around recommending it to people on literary merit alone.

In the meantime, Elenia is ruled by a prince regent, the puppet of the tyrannical Annias, who vows to seize power over all the land. There were occasions when this reviewer laughed out loud while reading, as even through its darkest moments there are breaks of humour.

The Elenium is Eddings’ third fantasy series. I love absolutely everything about it! Eddings writes High Fantasy with Capital Letters, evenwith all the tropes and archetypes thereof — there aren’t any surprises h Eddinngs Eddings is comfort reading of the highest order okay, I will admit that I stopped reading him after a certain point, but this series was before flenium point, so!


Sparhawk is a gruff, no nonsense knight and is a very loveable character. As I neared the end of the book I wondered how they were going to wrap up the entire storyline that quickly, and they ultimately did not. Jul 10, David rated it did not like it Shelves: Oh, I take that back – I liked Sparhawk’s horse, Faran, too! That favid not to say it was a terrible book. Especially the dialogues seemed a bot lacking in a way. Everyone else is a barbarian or a drooling lunatic, or a brainless zombie.

Then I explained to edcings that I’d rather he didn’t do it any more.

Lisez la Belgariad et si vous en voulez vraiment plus, The Elenium saura au moins vous satisfaire. We’ve found that while readers like to know what we think of a book they find additional reader reviews a massive help in deciding if it is the right book for them.

It got hard to tell them apart after a while, except by their labels. The diamond will keep Queen Ehlana alive for up to 12 months while a cure is found.

Like On Basilisk Stationthe humor is a bit too on-the-nose, the protagonists are a bit too capable, and the author relishes showing antagonists getting their comeuppance. I just can’t fathom leaving that sort of thing so undeveloped.

The rest was like wading through molasses.
