A reread of what is possibly my favorite fantasy series by my favorite fantasy author. Eddings has his faults -- over description of the weather, a tendency to write himself into deus ex machina, and some overreliance on racial prejudices which would be truly awful if we weren't talking about fict...

4.0 The Diamond Throne (Elenium, Book 1)
A fun fantasy novel that does a good job of bridging the gap between high fantasy and heroic fantasy. I particularly liked the little nods to Wagner's Ring cycle with the series gemstone. My main complaint is that the gemstone doesn't come up soon enough in the book's plot.

A wonderful fantasy series. I read it for the first time last year, and immediately knew, that this would be a series I'd reread time and time again. I'm a big fan of fantasy, and this is some of the best.

I read many Eddings books when I was 14, and they, together with some other fantasy series, got me into reading. I liked them then, but I think I would probably give them awful ratings today ;)
