I remember this series very fondly but I think I enjoyed it as a teenager It's still a good read but the plot is a bit too go here; chase clue; repeat Subtlety is not Eddings' strong point Like On Basilisk Station the humor is a bit too on the nose the protagonists are a bit too capable and the author relishes showing antagonists getting their comeuppance The story very much doesn't stand on its own which has become a pet peeve of mine And the prologue is a fictitious legend that runs rampant over xkcd's too many fantasy names rule of thumbThose are mostly uibbles and they may not be a problem for you The setting here is very detailed and the characters are mostly plausible even if they do uip back and forth like they're starring in a sitcom I didn't remember the big reveal near the end and was surprised all over again I suspect I remember of the seuels so I'll be continuing the trilogy

D to find it overrun with evil and intrigue and his young ueen greviously ill Indeed Ehlana lies. David 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 that point so; I'd reread all of the rest of this series in December and all of the followup series The Tamuli but my copy of this one had taken a walkabout so I had to backfill and re read the first one lastEddings writes High Fantasy with Capital Letters even with all the tropes and archetypes thereof there aren't any surprises here And this is surprisingly slow moving for the first book in a new world; he spends a lot of time setting up structures and relationships that would have been pretty obvious in context and he's always had a little bit of a problem with over expositing I suspect that it would actually be possible for a reader who's familiar with the genre to pick up book two start there and be perfectly fine It isn't that the book itself moves slowly but that it takes a long time for many of the elements of the larger plot to come into playOn the other hand the characters are archetypically familiar without being cardboard cutouts the main character's just a darling and even though Eddings's prose is clunky in places his ability to juggle multiple strands of plot is a delight to watch on a technical level and just plain interesting on the readerly level If you're looking for an old familiar friend series give this one a try As archetypical High Fantasy goes this one's a keeper

David Eddings ç 4 Summary

The Diamond ThroneAfter a long spell of exile Sparhawk Pandion Knight and the ueen's champion returns to native lan. David Eddings' Belgariad series is what first gave me my love of reading especially of fantasy so I always have a soft spot for anything he has written and this book is no exception Although I think the Belgariad is better I thoroughly enjoyed this book Sir Sparhawk a Knight of the Pandion order has returened to Elenia after 10 years of being exciled to find that the young ueen Ehlena is sick and dying betrayed by a corrupt Churchman who has lofty ambitions and her bastard cousin It is up to Sparhawk to try and find a cure for her illness with the help of his friends and fellow knights as well as a thief and a girl child before ueen Ehlena dies and the world is thrown into an age of darkness What I love about David Eddings is that he creates such likable characters reading about Sparhawk Kurik Kalten and company is always very entertaining the banter between them all is funny and seems to be one of his key tools in chracterization However the characters to bare a resemblance to his characters in the Belgariad the story is also uite similar But the plot is different enough to keep it interesting despite certain similarities and is very fast paced Sparhawk is constantly on the move and it seems once one crisis is averted another one pops up and Sparkhawk is trotting off to sort that out as well This is a fun read it isn't a dark and involved fantasy but rather a great adventure story full of knights and magic
