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. The Diamond Throne kicks off with a bang with the main character returning after a ten year unjust exile at the behest of the new ueen with only one little snag in that the ueen has taken seriously ill and had had to put into a form of stasis and this begins a uest to find a cure for the young ueen D Though there are also the parties responsible for poisoning intent on causing trouble which of course leads to all sorts of attempted upsets daring do's plenty of clenched teeth and grim chins DCharacterisation is excellent with all the characters having distinctly different personalities which results in a lot of humour that ties in with all the action and creates a brilliant set of situations and interactions that will keep you guessing which the way things are going g to go with the plot D There are also parts where it appear that the characters are having a bit of a holiday which again adds to the tone of the book DThe Diamond Throne does a great job of setting up the world of The Elenium with us been introduced to the order of the various Knights as well as the political structure that is heavily based on mediaeval Europe's feudal culture that with a few democratic processes in place But this adds to a great cambers for the adventures of the characters throughout the book which leads to encounters with many people from different nations as well as giving an opportunity to explore the past history of the world and some the major events that happened to have formed the societies and Nations DThe characters are all really well depicted as being different from each other with no characters actually feeling like hot copies of the other and all the characters regardless of rank or how often they peer seems to be lacking in three dimensional characterisation which leads to some great interactions between them and really adds to the feel of the book especially when the characters are in conflict with each other but the come together in order to overcome the obstacles are often thrown in their way You also get to see a lots of the past history of the land and the characters which also adds to the overall palimpsest that is depicted throughout the book DThroughout the book you can see in and detect that there is a much bigger plotline going on and this is obviously the set up for the later books showing very clearly that there is a lot going on very at first see in this opening book D Though this is not to say that The Diamond Throne is not completely packed out with events and world building you can see why three books were needed to get this world started This all adds to a adventure which never lets up at all for a second with the characters getting into once great after another DFace paced lots of humour great plot world building and noble uesting D Highly recommended D

The Diamond ThroneAfter a long spell of exile Sparhawk Pandion Knight and the ueen's champion returns to native lan. 'You'd better get ready to ride Sparhawk'Meet Sparhawk Pandion Knight and ueen’s Champion If this were DD his character class would likely be Paladin; he can cast spells but mostly prefers to just chop off heads with his considerable broadswordSparhawk is a bit of a bad ass So is his horse Faran 'It's the ueen's Champion Don't ever stand in his way'I fairly devoured this novel in short order Sparhawk has a zero tolerance approach to BS which is immensely refreshing and enjoyable The Diamond Throne is a no nonsense tale The writing style on display here is sometimes a bit workmanlike and without literary flourish but it seems to suit the story and especially the protagonist rather well 'It's going to be dangerous'And thus our hero sets out on a uest to save the kingdom accompanied by a few companionsAh the tried and tested recipe for a fantasy story Fortunately it’s hardly possible to make a mess of a book when it has such an endearing protagonist Eddings seems to have struck gold with Sparhawk because I was willing to forgive all kinds of faultsIt’s an old school story that in my opinion leans slightly toward the heroic fantasy of Gemmell than it does the high fantasy of Tolkien and yet it still sits somewhere in between I haven’t read The Belgariad yet so I’m unable to draw any comparison Eddings it seems was somewhat hot property in the 1980s alongside the likes of Raymond E Feist Just don’t expect dragons or elves 'What are you planning Sparhawk''Chastisement’One of the major selling points of this story is the dialogue It’s rather good what In fact it’s absolutely delightful often than notThe bantering between the characters and especially the knights of the different orders is deftly dealt with It’s remarkable that for all the humour in this novel it never stoops to being silly or a parody 'It should be almost like a cheese grater when we start to grind them up against your walls''And I can drop some interesting things on them from my battlements as well Arrows large rocks burning pitch that sort of thing''We're going to get on splendidly my Lord'The story won me over with its simple charm It’s not as complicated and reality ridden as the modern fantasy but it does have a bit of dirt under its fingernails There are some religious and philosophical leanings but for the most part these serve to underscore elements of the story 'Has he ever bitten you''Once Then I explained to him that I'd rather he didn't do it any ''Explained''I used a stout stick He got the idea almost immediately'In short it’s a fantasy adventure that should appeal to readers that don’t have a very straight literary stick wedged somewhere tightFor literary merit cleverness and all that jazz 35 starsFor pure unadulterated entertainment value 45 stars
