When he burps, mountains pop up. But there’s just so many nagging doubts that I’ve seen in other reviews, that I can’t help but agree with them. Yes, there is very clearly an Eddings “formula” for developing his story arcs.

It was the same story just in a different location. The Vlagh had successfully trapped the outlanders as the earth began to shake. The only drawback comes from repeated conversations as one character will refer to a previous conversation in near exact detail just a few pages after it happened. Don’t let the other books spoil it.

Jalkan escapes and returns to The Trogite Empire, where he reconnects with his former friend and partner-in-crime, Adnari Estarg.

He later switched to writing epic fantasy, a field in which he achieved great success. Like the Treasured one, it is divided into sections which give background information on a particular character, and summarizes the story from the first book to the present from the character’s point of view.
