    1. 'You'd better get ready to ride, Sparhawk.'Meet Sparhawk: Pandion Knight and Queen’s Champion. If this were D&D his character class would likely be Paladin; he can cast spells, but mostly prefers to just chop off heads with his considerable broadsword.Sparhawk is a bit of a bad-ass. So is his horse, Faran.'It's the Queen's Champion. Don't ever stand in his way.'I fairly devoured this novel in short order. Sparhawk has a zero tolerance approach to BS which is immensely refreshing and enjoya [...]


    2. I've probably read this 4 or 5 times. It's fun, entertaining & amusing. I liked this first trilogy better than the second (Tamuli) but both are good if you're looking for something quick, light & entertaining.Sparhawk is a great character, a battered knight, but his horse Faran is my favorite. It's nice to see a horse as a character. More authors should do this.


    3. David Eddings' Belgariad series is what first gave me my love of reading, especially of fantasy, so I always have a soft spot for anything he has written and this book is no exception. Although I think the Belgariad is better I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Sir Sparhawk, a Knight of the Pandion order has returened to Elenia after 10 years of being exciled to find that the young queen, Ehlena, is sick and dying, betrayed by a corrupt Churchman who has lofty ambitions and her bastard cousin. It is [...]


    4. The Diamond Throne kicks off with a bang with the main character returning after a ten year unjust exile at the behest of the new Queen with only one little snag in that the queen has taken seriously ill and had had to put into a form of stasis and this begins a quest to find a cure for the young Queen! :D Though there are also the parties responsible for poisoning intent on causing trouble which of course leads to all sorts of attempted upsets, daring do's, plenty of clenched teeth and grim chi [...]


    5. Dosadna i predvidiva knjiga sa dosadnim i predvidivim likovima koji rade dosadne i predvidive stvari. To sve i ne bi bilo tako staršno da su likovi interesantni, da imaju pametne razgovore ili da je glavni lik neko ko je kolko tolko realan a ne wunderkind koji je sve rešava pošto je pametniji od svih, ili bolji borac iliJedino što je sama postavka priče interesantna sa princozom/kraljicom zamrznutom u dijamant dok joj ne nađu lek.Iskreno zaobići.Mada moguće da mi ovo smeta pošto sam ve [...]


    6. The Diamond Throne is the first book in the Elenium series, and trust me it is amazing! It is followed by The Ruby Knight and The Sapphire Rose. This is possibly one of my most favourite books! I love absolutely everything about it! I could write pages and pages on how brilliant this book is, but since that would take you too long to read and I would land up giving to much away, I’ve tried my best to explain why this book is so fantastic.David Eddings is more well known for his Bolgariad serie [...]


    7. David Eddings is comfort reading of the highest order (okay, I will admit that I stopped reading him after a certain point, but this series was before that point, so!); I'd reread all of the rest of this series in December, and all of the followup series (The Tamuli), but my copy of this one had taken a walkabout, so I had to backfill and re-read the first one last.Eddings writes High Fantasy (with Capital Letters, even), with all the tropes and archetypes thereof -- there aren't any surprises h [...]


    8. I’m cheating here a little bit because this is a three book series, but it seems a little redundant to only talk about the first one, so please view this review as being for all three. David Eddings is one of the great masters of the quest fantasy. What Tolkien started many, many authors have run with, though few as successfully or just generally as satisfyingly as Eddings.The Elenium focuses on a Knight called Sparhawk and his travels to save his young and very beautiful queen, who is encased [...]


    9. Solid fantasy novel.Interesting world, characters and plot.Something was missing for me though. I couldn't place my finger on what exactly, but it was not as good as Sandersons books for example. Especially the dialogues seemed a bot lacking in a way.The main character is a great and funny one anyway, so if you're on the lookout for a new series, and already read through most of the genre, this might still be a nice change while waiting for the next favorites.


    10. Resenha feita pelo blog Bravura Literária.O Trono de Diamante, lançado em Agosto desse ano, foi o primeiro livro do gênero Fantasia publicado pela Editora Aleph, que é famosa por seus lançamentos do gênero de Ficção Científica. Grande admirador de Tolkien, o autor David Eddings foi um dos mais bem sucedidos escritores de fantasia do século XX. A Aleph apostou, e eu posso afirmar que o tiro foi certeiro!No livro somos apresentados a Sir Sparhawk, um cavaleiro da Ordem Pandion, uma das q [...]


    11. Stating this upfront. It's not genius writing. The characters are two dimensional and perfect. They look perfect (except for when they have a feature that turns them from perfect to unique), they act perfect, their motives are noble and honorable, except for the villains who twirl their mustaches and laugh at their maniacalness. Okay, maybe not quite that bad but it's close. Every cliche that could be hit seemed like it was. No it didn't wrap up the main conflict. There don't seem to be any subp [...]


    12. I suspect that the high regard in which I held Edding's writing had more to do with the context of my life at the time that I initially discovered his work (starved for distraction) because this, at least, really wasn't very good. And filled with disparaging and unnecessary references toward women. It is possible that this is just the very worst of his efforts, but I think I'll have to stand by the past tense "held," in my opening sentence, as far as that high regard is concerned.


    13. I remember this series very fondly, but I think I enjoyed it more as a teenager. It's still a good read, but the plot is a bit too "go here; chase clue; repeat". Subtlety is not Eddings' strong point. Like On Basilisk Station, the humor is a bit too on-the-nose, the protagonists are a bit too capable, and the author relishes showing antagonists getting their comeuppance. The story very much doesn't stand on its own (which has become a pet peeve of mine). And the prologue is a fictitious legend t [...]


    14. This is either my 3rd or 4th reading. Admittedly, it has some of the flaws of most of Eddings' work: the characters are chuckleheads and the plot usually revolves aroundwell, I won't spoil it but you can probably figure it out.However, there are some marked improvements (and in the realm of general fantasy it is better than most).1. Sparhawk is infinitely superior to Garion.2. The bad guys are far more interesting than in the Belgariad. Azash is truly something to be feared. Kal Torak, by contra [...]


    15. Not the correct edition. Mine is an old library copy from cassette tapes. The sound quality kind of sucked, but I've read the book in paper several times, so it wasn't a huge deal.This is a simple story, a fun romp, that doesn't take itself too seriously. It's an interesting world with a neat system of magic & a definite goal. The characters are pretty standard, but their dialog makes them more interesting. I love that Faran, Sparhawk's horse, plays such a great role.It definitely ends on a [...]


    16. On the one hand, I want to give credit to Eddings for trying to write this. He went from family-friendly bestselling non-Tolkien epic fantasy author of all time (at the time) to, immediately, a dark and brutal semi-noir proto-grimdark story about church politics, drenched in sex (albeit off-screen) and blood and elder gods and incest and pederasty and fountains of blood and ethnic cleansing and blood. And when I was eight, I loved it, although given his massive decline in sales apparently a lot [...]


    17. The dialog in this book is probably the best thing about it. Eddings has a WONDERFUL talent with snappy remarks and clever comebacks. I remember when I first read it, reading bits aloud to my sister. "But ThPARhawk" he lisped. "You know how thatin thpoths when it geths wet!!" Yeah, probably doesn't mean much to you, but trust me, it was hilarious.It's a true fantasy novel, with knights and magic and battles and the works. Definitely my favorite Eddings novel.That being saidAfter rereading it rec [...]


    18. The Diamond Throne starts the Elenium trilogy and centre around the hero Sir Sparhawk who is the exiled Queen’s champion from an order of knights who are trained in magic as they are combat. On returning from exile Sparhawk finds that his queen has been poisoned and her power usurped by the corrupt head of the Elenian church. However the sorceress Serephina has encased the queen in diamond in order to delay the effects of the poison and buy Sparhawk time to find a cure. Sparhawk sets about gat [...]


    19. Reread this book for what may be the sixth or seventh time. It's a day read, potato chip craving that somehow moves beyond.This book has the elements I cherish most. It has plot, pacing, action, and character development. If you are a slow reader the book may lack urgency. Sparhawk is a three-dimensional character, not the best but far from the worst. You get to know the first few characters in the starter and the plot presents equally appealing dual conflicts. If you haven't read anything by Da [...]


    20. This is the beginning of a new edding series and I am not as hooked as I was with the prior series of his. Plot line is ok so far.Characters are brilliant. I love sparhawk and Kuriks constant bickering, like an old married couple.Just not as gripped by this as I was before with eddings. Still good just not great. I will perservere!


    21. Read this many years ago, and ended up skimming the second half. I could see why Eddings has such a poor reputation: the writing was boring and the characters were caricatures, with flat dialog and a generic Epic Fantasy Quest plot. I've never been tempted to read anything by Eddings since.


    22. 4.5 ok, so it's kinda formulaic, but the characters and their dialogues are just so utterly charming, I wasn't immune. On to The Ruby Knight!


    23. Eddings basically repeats the same plot over and over again. I'm particularly attached to Sparhawk, so I didn't mind at all.





    24. The most I can say about this right now is:First, the story is not tied up at the end of this book. Not in any way. (I've read this before but forgot that fact.) I got to the end and actually went, "Wait a minute. What???"Second, do yourself a favor and don't listen to the audiobook. If you must listen you can speed the narrator up to a more human sound, but still I'd recommend avoiding it all together.It gets 3 stars because I remember liking it fairly well when I read it years ago. Listening t [...]


    25. I asked someone to buy me this book in grade seven, if memory serves. I had read and loved Eddings' other series The Belgariad by that point- Pawn of Prophecy was the first novel I ever read by myself, giving it a special, permanent place in my heart - and I was eager to read something else from the guy who, at the time, was my favorite fantasy writer (and the only one I knew, which would be why). I read maybe a third of The Diamond Throne before realizing I didn't care; and I stuffed it, disapp [...]


    26. An exiled knight returns after 10 years to find his queen deathly ill and encased in magic stone in order to prolong her life. He sets out on a highly political and violent quest to rout out who is behind her mysterious illness and thwart those people that would want to usurp her throne.I enjoyed this book. It wasn’t earth-shattering, but it was a fun read. It was also a fast-read. I made it through it’s 435 pages in 6 hours or so.What enjoyed the most would be some of the quotes. Eddings ma [...]


    27. Not a ground-breaking fantasy, and definitely reminiscent of the Belgariad. But it's good, nostolgic, David Eddings fun, so it gets a 4 in my book.
