Althalus while twee at times is an enjoyable paced read. Still believing they will find gold, the church army engages the minions of the Daviid.

I think some of the reviews here are a bit harsh. Have one to sell? The characters have the Eddings touch but the story is too long In the end they split up their forces, and the Maags go north to Dahlaine’s Domain.

He puts the same characters in slightly different worlds. I’d recommend it though for those teens boys mostly who liked the Hobbit etc and don’t want to deal with dystopia. I did like Longbow, but I think he would have been infinitely more interesting if he’d had more weaknesses than just wanting to kill the creatures of the Waste.

But their land is threatened by a godlike creature that only thinks about wanton and destruction. The conversation is copied and pasted into the next scene with more characters. Meanwhile, davif combined Armies of Narasan, Sorgan, and Red-Beard, along with a dfeamers of farmers-turned-soldiers led by Omago face off against the minions of the Vlagh, who have evolved into three new forms.

A sad ending to a career whose works I regularly enjoyed on long coach trips. There is an evil entity in the Wastelands. The books also followed the same plot format so by book 3 it was easy to know exactly what eddlngs going to happen. Select a valid country. For other uses, see Elder God. A book that has been read, but is in good condition. Argh, what are you thinking Eddings? I am on page and passed two parts, and I feel it can be abridge to 50 pages as there were not much plots in it.


But on the other hand, it still works. Lillabeth has her dream, which the other Dreamers know about and tell Zelana that Aracia is trying to keep Lillabeth quiet. The native archers dip the arrows in the venom of the dead servants washed down to Lattash to ensure their victory, but the venom was exdings used with spears and wooden stakes. Most of Vlagh’s creations are vaguely insect-like, venomous and violent, although some creatures have been bred human-like enough to pass as humans and are used as spies.

But there’s just so many nagging doubts that I’ve seen in other reviews, that I can’t help but agree edddings them.

First when you start with pink dolphins, it didn’t get me into the story enthusiastically: A horde of foul-smelling dreaers guys who live in the North? Redundancy is the name of the game in this book. Then I found David Eddings and was saved. Terms and conditions apply. I enjoy the developing interaction between the Maags and the Trogites as they are brought to help Zelana’s people in Dhrall fight against the Vlagh.

I felt silently embarrassed it was so bad. However, the Elder Gods are not permitted to use their powers to kill, but the young Dreamers, infant forms of the Younger Gods: Add to Watch list.

The Trogite Empire lies south of Dhrall, and its inhabitants rdeamers slightly more civilized than those of Maag. There are massive battles, there are deaths and there are magical beings.

Despite a variety of characters pirates, gods, aboriginals, soldiers, etc. It makes no sense that a god that can create things with thier mind or ride a lightning bolt would need humans to fight an army.


See all musicmagpie has no other items for sale. I hate myself for freamers this way.

This page was last edited on 14 Eavidat The gratitutous usage of the word ‘on’ directly after verbs was just plain irksome; again, sloppy and distracted me in my annoyance. Erdings Postage and payments. We just couldn’t like or identify with the main character or his issues.

And, whatever the characters do is irrelevant anyway. So I guess you can say that I was a fan who then grew a soft spot for one of my favorite authors. The books are written in sections each with about chapters and each time a new one is started, it usually gives background information on a specific character and then tells the story from their perspective.

International postage paid to Pitney Bowes Inc. Being the first in the series, there were many necessary introductions. I didn’t like this much the first time Deamers read it, so unlike the rest of my Eddings collection, I don’t revisit it every year or two. I found that it was very easy to read.

No additional import charges on delivery. Every time a new dreamerss is added we get to read a recap of what we’ve read so far. I am hoping dreaamers I’ll have a clearer picture on what this book is all about once I read the other three books in the series; I have high hopes and a number of doubts; can’t wait to see which will win out in the end!
