Domes of Fire

Domes of Fire


The first book of the Tamuli
By: Jakob Persson

These books are probably the best I've ever read (except for "The Lord of the Rings", Tolkien rules you know). I would call these books "the best of Eddings". This story of 1800 pages takes us on long journey from Elenia to Tamuli where dark powers are overthrowing the empire. Are the Troll Gods once again loose in the world?
Along the way Ehlana and Sparhawk encounter enemies never beheld by the world before. Since Sparhawk is 'Anakha', the man without destiny feared by Gods, now it is up to him determine the ending.

I finished them yesterday and my opinion is that they even beat the Belgariad. My opinion of Eddings has also changed. Before I had read the Tamuli I though that David Eddings was best at creating worlds and characters but he didn't have that talent of using the right words describing places with great athmosphere. Now I know he can. This can also be seen when reading The Elenium" but not with the same depth and realism.
The Tamuli is Eddings at his very best.
