Read in October, 2007 , read count: 3

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 gathering a team representing the four knight orders and sets out on his quest to find an antidote to the queen’s poison.

In the Belgraion and Sparhawk series of books Eddings tells superb stories and builds deeply complex and rich characters that you can’t help but connect with and root for.
