The Elenium: The Diamond Throne / The Ruby Knight / The Sapphire Rose by David EddingsNow for the first time in one thrilling volume-the three magical novels that make up David Eddingss epic fantasy The Elenium.
In an ancient kingdom, the legacy of one royal family hangs in the balance, and the fate of a queen--and her empire--lies on the shoulders of one knight.
Sparhawk, Knight and Queens Champion, has returned to Elenia after ten years of exile, only to find young Queen Ehlana trapped in a crystalline cocoon. The enchantments of the sorceress Sephrenia have kept the queen alive-but the spell is fading. In the meantime, Elenia is ruled by a prince regent, the puppet of the tyrannical Annias, who vows to seize power over all the land.
Now Sparhawk must find the legendary Bhelliom, a sapphire that holds the key to Ehlanas cure. Sparhawk and his companions will face monstrous foes and evil creatures on their journey, but even greater dangers lie in wait: for dark legions will stop at nothing to reach the radiant stone, which may possess powers too deadly for any mortal to bear.
Also, there are spoilers! Our review of The Diamond Throne Elenium 1 is here. Sparhawk starts this book a immediately after the end of the first one, and b wanting someone to jump him, so that he can get all violent on some unsuspecting footpad. They seem to quite happily wreak havoc on people at the drop of a hat, and he IS a knight, trained to battle! Anyway, I still like it, and it does show that there has been a fair bit of thought put into the world, even if much of it simplistic. Yeah I enjoy these histories too. They definitely like an info-dump, but at least the Eddings do it with style and humour!
