Publisher's Summary

Finally, the knight Sparhawk had come to possess Bhelliom, legendary jewel of magic that alone could save Queen Ehlana from the deadly poison that had felled her father. Sparhawk and Sephrenia, ageless instructor in Styric magics, made haste to free Ehlana from the crystalline cocoon that had preserved her life while they desperately sought a cure.But Bhellion carried dangers of its own. Once the stone came into his hands, Sparhawk found himself stalked by a dark, lurking menace. Whether the foul Zemoch god Azash was behind this threat, or some other enemy, even Sephrenia could not say - only that the sapphire rose held powers too dangerous for any mortal to bear.Restoring Queen Ehlana would only be the beginning of Sparhawk's mission. With the aid of four stalwart knights, one from each Militant Order, he must thwart Ehlana's poisoner, the Primate Annias, in his plot to assume the throne of the Church. For, as Archprelate, Annias would serve his secret master, Azash, and deliver up to the dread god the one thing Azash thirsted for - Bhelliom itself!

the power of a gem

The Goddess Aphrael has revealed herself and Sparhawk has the Bhelliom. with the quest almost over and the tool needed to restore his queen to health you might think that the story is almost done.

But the restoration of Queen Ehlana to full health is just the start. with Martel and Annias working together to put Annias on the throne of the church Sparhawk has a few loose ends to tie up.

what Sparhawk does not know is that the loose ends will end with one of his most dangerous and deadly quests.

hopeless sieges, love, political battles, and death of a beloved character will conclude this trilogy with a great adventure and a super surprising ending. a must listen and a instant love

A great end to this trilogy

The writing is good. if you enjoyed the first two novels you will like this one as well. All the lose ends from the story are tied up nicely while still leaving room for the next series. I guess I am in the majority as I actually liked the narrarator and thought he did a good job, especially as all of Eddings books have a ton of characters to voice.

Greg; punctuation!

Mr Abby, the purpose of punctuation in a story, is to pace the narrative to the scene the author is creating. Your ignoring of punctuation makes the story jarring and uncomfortable. Also, expressing appropriate emotion might be worth considering. Just a thought.

Unnecessary music

Great story spoiled by music interludes after every 10 chapters and being reminded what story I'm listening to.

A classic fantasy favourite

The whole of this series is enjoyable from start to finish. David Eddings created a fascinating medieval-inspired world full of knights, royalty, gods and magic and brought it to life with a classic epic quest fantasy storyline interwoven with light hearted humour and loveable characters. A favourite!

David Eddings is excellent!

I do really like the Sparhawk stories though. Excellent dialogue and very engaging characters. Brilliant!
