Publisher's Summary

Ehlana, Queen of Elenia, had been poisoned. A deep enchantment sustained her life, but only while the Knights aiding it still lived - and, already, they were dying, one each month. Then Sparhawk, the knight and Queen's Champion, learned that the cure for the poison was Bhelliom, the great jewel lost when Sarak of Thalesia died in battle 500 years before. Sparhawk and his companions set forth to find King Sarak's grave by raising ghosts of those who had perished in that ancient battle. The Seeker, an insectile monster spawned of the evil god Azash, hounded their every step. Still, Sparhawk pressed on, driven by desperate need. They had to find Bhelliom before his Queen perished. They must not fail!

If you liked the first book get this one too,

This is the second novel in the series and is as good as the first. I actually prefer the Elenium and Tamuli to the Belgariad and Mallorean. The guy basically wrote the same stories over and again, but that's ok because he is really good at it. I didn't have any trouble with the nararrator and my daughter and I both liked it and were able to listen to this as a family. This is not just good parent bonding but equals quiet during a long road trip. Defnitiely worth a credit in my opinion.

Couldn't wait

I listened to The Diamond Throne and couldn't wait to listen to the The Ruby Knight. I listened to it in two days and I am looking forward to The Sapphire Rose. Again I would recommend this series to anyone looking for a good read or listen.

Of Gods and Men...

... or rather Goddess and Men.

A very engaging continuation of the search for a cure to an incurable poison.

Good story and well read

Would you consider the audio edition of The Ruby Knight to be better than the print version?

I would rate them the same. Took a while in the first book to adjust to the reader but no problem after that.
