They’re even represented by the same colors. I’ll be referring back to my review of the preceeding trilogy – the Tamuli is, I think, more successful overall, but I still have rather a lot to say about it.
Elenium and Tamuli series (David Eddings) | SFF Chronicles forums
Loved this and the Elenium, which I read first. It does smack somewhat of the tamuuli savage” mythology, but still adds flavor. And when he found Ehlana and Alean. In this series, Sparhawk and friends travel to the Tamul Empire, far to the east.
The good guys are white, western and northern European Catholics there are straight-up English, French, German tamili Norse analogues. I’d forgotten about that one – some of Kalten’s lines really were funny! Love the main characters Pandion knight Sparhawk and queen Ehlana. The sheer stupidity or some characters is also jarring at times, although many of these are specifically described as such in the story.
Every move they make is flawless, every plan come together perfectly. Lists with This Book. There are many characte I read this series every year or two, so it feels like an old friend by now.
The Emperor is an entertaining character, and the villains are suitably villainous. Nov 01, Observer rated it liked it. Really, the world is a pantheon, with each race or nation having their own god or gods, and each god jealously trying to prevent its race from worshipping a Much like its prequel trilogy, the Elenium, Eddings’ Tamuli is a light, entertaining read that immerses the reader in a detailed world that the characters fully explore over the course of three books.
The two-star rating is because the series was not as good as the preceding Elenium, for the simple reason that it was pretty much the same plot re-hatched with old and new characters.
Sparhawk showed so much promise, so much potential depth, and then it all just withered on the vine, into the same stuff I’d read before. It’s fine, it moves reasonably quickly and there are some nice touches – the Manor of Horrible People is well-crafted, and the Secret Government is entertaining throughout.
Mar 19, Nayff rated it really liked it. The Diamond Throne I particularly liked, with Sparhawk spending the whole book on a quest that took him back to where he started at the beginning of the book. Peasants whisper of the heroes of old who will rise again.
Having seen the beginning of the threats in the Tamuli Empire, Sparhawk and his friends launch a campaign to purge the majority of the offenders with the help of the feared Shining Ones.

I suppose at some point people might begin to ask why, if I hated Eddings so much, did I keep reading him. Spell a tammuli lette rowrd and all characters are wrong. Twice was lazy, three times I suppose at some point people might begin to ask why, if I hated Eddings so much, did I keep reading him.
My goodness this is a massive tome.
Sep 08, Bill Pitcher rated it it was amazing. Dec 30, Sonja rated it it was ok. Wheras Kalten calmy let them know he got the message and let them know Bevier and Caalador is with him. It’s a relatively minor subplot, but it leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
David Eddings published his first novel, High Hunt, inbefore turning to the field of fantasy with the Belgariad, soon followed by the Malloreon. Then comes an ambassador from the far-off Tamuli empire, requesting aid: Other books in the series.
The Tamuli Series
Not too complex a plot and the ending is obviously left way open for the sequels to complete. You can find a very good summary here better then if I try to make a summary. World-destroying powers agree to let their im mortal avatars decide the outcome, one represents conservatism and stagnation, the other represents progress and humanism, the good guy wins.
Te are no discussion topics on this book yet.
As they travel east, they encounter Eastern Europeans socially backwards, follow a variant of the “right” religion, nomadic horse-people, and then the Asians dark haired, golden-skinned, in a heavily bureaucratic empire – essentially good people but godless and set in their obviously inefficient ways.

They make great foils to each other and the storyline is truly magical. Apr 01, Chris Van Dyke rated it did not like it Shelves: The Ruby Knight 3. He was flushing the fuel tank of the car with water when he lit a piece of paper te threw into the puddle to test if it was still flammable.
The Hidden City Summary is here: Okay, so it’s possible David Eddings has a bit of a formula with his stories, and he repeats it, but that doesn’t change the fact that the way he writes is purely enjoyable, and this series is no different. The problems of racial prejudice are attacked head-on, not subtly but honestly.
