It’s an interesting series and I am keen to see how it ends. Each week, our editors select the one author and one book they believe to be most worthy of your attention and highlight them in our Pro Connect email alert. There is no choice bu Originally posted on Once Upon a Bookcase.

We’ve found that while readers like to know what we think of a book they find additional reader reviews a massive help in deciding if it is the right book for them.

There was much character growth to be had in “The Shining Ones”, especially concerning Eddigns. It turns out Zalasta was behind everything–from the death of Sephrenia’s family he was after Aphrael, incarnate as her sister to all the events in Elenium. Still, the plot rattles along at a good pace, the gang members left behind in the Elene Castle while Sparhawk goes after Bhellion are finally given some interesting stuff to do, and it all gets a lot more fun once the Troll Gods arrive.

After all the hugs, apologies and kisses, the three goddesses hold hands and help to formulate plans on how to help the idle Church Knights defeat their enemy and restore peace. I read the Belgariad and the next series in High School. Bibliography by David Eddings.


The Shining Ones by David Eddings book review

In my defence, this book is most probably shininf most slow paced out of the six books that total Sparhawk’s adventures. I had to fight to get through the book. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

I liked this book because of the diversity of its characters, such as the main characterSparhawk, an old and grumpy Church Knight.


It becomes a completely different type of story than initially expected from reading the first instalment. Sparhawk, and the plot line of the book are stuck and unable to move forward as a successful attack and escape from the enemy hinges on the cooperation and combined magic of all three women. I enjoyed this story but I didn’t think it was mind blowing or the best fantasy book I’d ever read.

Xanetia promises to help Sparhawk and his gang carry out their mission provided that Sparhawk uses the super-magic of the Eddnigs to create a magical protective barrier around the Delphae community which would shield them from their enemies.

Cyrgon hhe explained as always being outdated and stupid, which cheapens him as an ene I enjoyed this much more than the first book of the trilogy, as his exdings between characters lessened and action increased.

Xanetia is of the Delphae race who are highly evolved, very spiritual and they have glowing skin; hence their nickname ‘The Eddinhs Ones,’ hence the name of the book. Goddesses Sephrenia and Apharel, who are supposed to lead the Church Knights into battlebehave with unbridled anger, they have irrational crying spells, they refuse to listen to logical explanations, they have eddinsg mood swings, they’re petty, they’re spiteful, they’re demeaning etc.

Now where did I put “The Hidden City”? Sparhawk soon discovers that they mythical Shinging Ones aren’t quite as mythical as everyone thought, and their danger is very real.

Decided to reread all of it. Plot Summary This book begins with Sparhawk venturing to retrieve the Bhelliom, a magical force capable of destroying the world as well Personal Response I liked The Shining Ones because there are more magical creatures than in the first book, and there is more action.

This book, like the other Eddings books I’ve read, seems to be as much about character relationships personal, political, racial as the adventure. I would like to The upside is that there were actually things in this book that I had forgotten.

Sephrenia goes through something terrible in this book, and it’s shocking to see the woman she onea when she comes to face-to-face with what causes her so much anguish.

Some of the characters effortlessly move into “glorious prose” without its feeling forced. The Hidden City The Tamuli: I enjoyed this much more than the first book of the trilogy, as his banter between characters lessened and action increased. It’s one of the worst examples of “show, don’t tell” I’ve ever come across. Zalasta, the Styric sage, who for hundreds of years has secretly nursed a virulent hatred of the child-goddess Aphrael, her sister Sephrenia, and the good guys in general.

Events happened right after another which kept the story going and not stay in one spot for too long. Just when you think you know which way is up, something else comes along to confuse the issue – bringing danger along with it. I would like to give the author the benefit of the doubt and say he was trying to avoid making it a magical ‘solve every problem’ device. The series consists of three volumes:.

Oh and the Tegan’s form of government is the best ever. And with that discovery is it revealed that not all are who they seem. Readers that like magic and knights will like this book as well. Sephrenia, a Styric, has a large dislike for the Shining Ones, and refuses to work with them at first. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
