Redemption of Althalus by David Eddings

Book Description

A fabulous brand new Eddings standalone fantasy, set in an entirely new magical world. Burglar, armed robber and sometime murderer, our hero Althalus is commissioned to steal a book from the House at the End of the World by a mysterious cloaked stranger named Ghend. At the House at the End of the World, he finds a talking cat...in the same room as the book Ghend described. What he can't find once he's in the house is the door by which he entered. Only 2467 years and an ice age later does Althalus re-emerge with the cat, Emmy. He's read the book written by the god Deiwos, whose evil brother Daeva is trying to unmake the world. Emmy is in fact their sister and she's setting out to save the world with Althalus to help her. No easy task. First there is a quest to unearth the magical knife that will enable Emmy to assemble her band of essential helpers: Eliar (young soldier), Andine (leader of a small country), Bheid (black-robed priest), Gher (ten-year old orphan), Leitha (telepath/witch). Battles follow against Gelta the Queen of Night and the armies of Daeva involving many devious manoeuvres in and out of the House where Doors can be opened to any place at any time. Daeva has his Doors, too. When Daeva can't win through battle, he tries revolution. When Dweia (Emmy) can't win any other way, Althalus will persuade her to lie, cheat and steal - reciprocating the lessons in truth, justice and morality Emmy has been giving him for some while. The existence of the world hangs in the balance and love cannot be guaranteed to triumph in this glorious epic fantasy.

Book Review: Redemption of Althalus by David Eddings - Reviewed by (02 Jun 2011)

This book is an amazing fantasy novel by David and Leigh Eddings. With a captivating plot, touchable characters and a spectacular setting, this novel is surely among the authors' best works so far. The world and characters are thoroughly described and explored with an almost playful tone. There are no lengthy, loooonnngg, 'boring' sections; each page is like a new adventure waiting to be lived. Althalus is led to a mysterious House, and in it, he meets a strange, yet somewhat nice talking black cat. He spends a considerable amount of time within the house, and is thrust into a quest.

Readers who enjoy reading a action-packed, wondrous novel with profound morals, yet still look for humorous sections will no doubt love the novel.
