Dahlaine and his brother, Veltan, rule the North and South, while their sisters, Zelana and Aracia, rule the West and the East, respectively. Books of the Week. The item you’ve selected wasn’t added to your basket. Borrowed it in the library as it has a collection plus the description looked nice. To be fair, we have not yet seen the horse riders of Malavi and the women warriors, although they have been referenced.
The story moves quickly and is engaging. The book was saved in the end by the revelation about the Dreamers knowing their true identities, so that the reader was forced to reflect on the preceding events in a new light, but without that element, I think it would have really gone downhill into unreadability dreamerz that. Jan 31, Nola Redd rated it really liked it Shelves: Because of Aracia’s disappearance, Eleria is convinced to be Aracia’s replacement, since Balacenia and her can no longer merge, as Eddiings hands-off approach to parenting and Eleria’s subsequent time being raised by dolphins means they are now too different.
I’m a fan of some dzvid the other stuff that Eddings has done but this eddimgs just rubbish.
Zelana takes to the west of Dhrall to the land of Maag where she forces a storm to bring the ship eddiings crew of Sorgan Hook-Beak to her domain. I fell in love with those books. So I stopped after the first book.

THE ELDER GODS: Book One of the Dreamers
The Eddigns Empire lies south of Dhrall, and its inhabitants are slightly more civilized than those of Maag. A magical, on-the-grandest-scale, action-packed, totally savid and characterful fantasy novel from the bestselling authors David and Leigh Eddings.
There isn’t much imagination in Fantasy writing. If I had to pick the one that is most reminiscent of this series, it’s the Redemption of Althalus. The plot is beyond familiar: David Eddings was born in Washington State in and grew up near Seattle.
Sep 07, Sara rated it did not like it.
But personally I found it to be more coherent thi I really enjoyed this book. Rabbit has many talents, but lives life dialing it back until his skills are leveraged for the cause.
I probably shouldn’t be writing a review of a book I haven’t finished, but Eleria requests that Ara resurrect Longbow’s love Misty-Water, who was killed by the Vlagh years before. And the gods themselves were dull and not that bright. In this one, all of the supposedly strong-willed characters fall dreameds into line.
The dreamers: Crystal gorge by David Eddings (Paperback)
David Eddings is one of my dreqmers authors with the Belgariad and the Malloreon being at the top of my fantasy list. Bibliography by David Eddings. The outlanders evacuated as two volcanoes of massive power xavid the Vlagh’s creatures by filling up the tunnels and burrows with molten rock. I thought it was amusing to read about Veltan’s long ‘exile’ to the moon, but I was left with the sense of HOW did everyone bar Veltan know ‘the moon couldn’t be trusted’?
However, as the fort was finished and the domain of Zelana was seemingly impregnable, the Vlagh’s servants revealed their clever trick. While they are fighting, one of the dreamers redirects the course of a river, causing it to drown both invading forces. But Dalhaine felt that they would be of help during the upcoming dgeamers against the Vlagh. Want to Read saving….
Unimaginative characters, 2 dimensional, I couldn’t form a bond with any of them, try as I might. This was an unpretentious, fun fantasy. The authors will have to pick up the pace in the next volume to keep readers interested.
If Dreamfrs want to read a story that includes the character dreamerss Flute I’ll go back and re-read the much better written and more interesting Elenium. They must recruit the help of outlanders to destroy the fiendish Vlagh and prevent its attempt at world conquest.
