9780007217076: The Shining Ones (Tamuli)

Continuing the epic tale begun in Book One of The Tamuli, Domes of Fire…

Prince Sparhawk and Queen Ehlana must remain with their retinue of Pandion Knights in the Eastern land of Daresia to assist the beleagured Emperor Sarabian. The rebellion against Sarabian within the walls of the famed pearl-encrusted city of Matherion was defeated. But Sarabian’s enemies will regroup and plan an attack that will be less easily routed. Trolls despoil Atan in the North, and vampires, werewolves, zombies, ghouls and Ogres form a vast conspiracy to take over the Empire. Most disturbing of all are reported sightings of Shining Ones among the hordes. These luminous beings inspire more fear than the rest combined.

Queen Ehlana has taken Sarabian in hand and is educating him in ruthless statecraft – her skill in which has always inspired Sparhawk’s admiration. The Pandion Knight meanwhile resurrects the Bhelliom – with Flute’s help (actually, Sparhawk has no idea where it is, but Flute, fortunately, does) – and awaits the arrival of the full complement of Pandion Knights needed for the coming battle.

The enemies of the Empire know that possession of the Bhelliom makes Sparhawk as dangerous as any god. But gods are among his foes. The outcome of the conflict is beyond the possibility of prediction… and while Sparhawk defends the far-flung Tamul Empire, he cannot also protect his beautiful Queen.

Review:

‘A graceful, fluid style of storytelling rare in fantasy writing’
Publishers Weekly

From the Back Cover:

HAVOC AND WAR

Prince Sparhawk is pledged to fight the enemies of the Tamuli Emperor Sarabian with all the skill and cunning of a Pandion Knight. Meanwhile his Queen, Ehlana, educates Sarabian in the art of ruthless statesmanship. Sarabian is transformed from a mere puppet ruler into a formidable politician. But still trolls, vampires, werewolves, zombies, ghouls and ogres form a vast conspiracy to take over the Empire. Most disturbing of all are reported sightings of Shining Ones amongst the hordes. These luminous beings inspire more fear than the rest combined. And Sparhawk and his companions must resurrect the sacred jewel of the Troll-Gods to combat them.

Possession of the jewel makes Sparhawk as dangerous as any god, but gods are among his foes. And while Sparhawk defends the far-flung Tamuli Empire, he cannot also protect his beautiful Queen…

"What separates the grown-up authors from the boys is the quality of the writing and David Eddings is one of the best."
WESTERN MAIL

"Sparhawk is the best-realised hero in modern fantasy."
DAILY TELEGRAPH
