Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Great!. I absolutely loved David Eddings and had these books with me through the years. Not to be too nitpicky; these books are great to read but not re-read too often, since you can notice some inconsistencies in some of the the characterization, language and scenarios; especially in the Tamuli series. The characteization is great; the characters are witty although Ehlana 's make you wonder sometimes. Sparhawk is the most relate-able character in the books. Overall a very very good read. would love to have another series to follow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The start of a great series... I started The Diamond Throne by accident, but it turned out to be a great novel by a consistently entertaining fantasy author. I still think Eddings' central conflict in this series is too cool for words. Give it a try even if you're not crazy about the genre.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Diamond Throne -- A Gem! Do you ever find yourself wishing for a fastasy series that doesn't start: once there was this boy who was to be king! Finally we have real characters, right from the begining. Sparhawk and his fellows are older battle-worn knights -- the best of their respective orders. Refreshing! And even more so, there is a dark, sardonic humour that you'd expect would come from characters who did battle for a living. Add to this plots within plots, and a setting rich and detailed. This is indeed an epic adventure worth the time to read once. And then read again -- just for fun!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Diamond Throne - Classic Eddings. Although not the best reviewed author of his genre, I found this book to be engaging and easy to read. It contains a simple story, lots of characters and a broad range of different regions. It also contains some excellent descriptions of knights chopping off the limbs of their foes. If you like knights and heraldic lore, then this book is definitely for you. The other two in the series are also excellent reads.
