Read full description of the books:
This is surprisingly different from the first volume. The pacing is a lot more consistent and the story feels stronger. It's definitely an excellent end to the series. These ones are also different because they have a lot more POVs than the first ones. I've never liked Ce'Nedra but it was good to see her finally grow up a bit.
A quick word about the women in this series, though - they're manipulative. For the good of the men, of course. It's really really annoying. Especially since Ce'Nedra is a spoiled little princess who throws tantrums to get her way. And then flashes her "winsome smile" and bats her eyelashes. It's annoying. It's actually done with a great deal of humor but it would have worked so very much better if it had been only one of the female characters.
Despite this annoyance, I actually really love this series. This walk down memory lane was especially satisfying because the books held up to my memory of them. This is some seriously good reading.

Read information about the authorDavid Eddings was an American author who wrote several best-selling series of epic fantasy novels. David Eddings' wife, Leigh Eddings, was an uncredited co-author on many of his early books, but he had later acknowledged that she contributed to them all.
David Eddings' first books (which were general fiction) sold moderately well. He later switched to writing epic fantasy, a field in which he achieved great success. In a recent interview with sffworld.com, he said: "I don't take orders from readers."
On January 26, 2007 it was reported that Eddings accidentally burned about a quarter of his office, next door to his house, along with his Excalibur sports car, and the original manuscripts for most of his novels. He was flushing the fuel tank of the car with water when he lit a piece of paper and threw into the puddle to test if it was still flammable.
On February 28, 2007, David Eddings' wife, Leigh Eddings (born Judith Leigh Schall), died following a series of strokes. She was 69.
David Eddings died on June 2, 2009 at the age of 77.
