Zakath works so well as a character as does the expansion of Beldin/Feldegast you can almost forgive how sidelined the women are in this installment. Even Polgara is MIA. Vella gets some good bits as does Poledra, it's just a pity that all the other women don't get nearly enough screentime comparatively. ( )

Demon Lord of Karanda is the third book in The Malloreon by David Eddings. The quest continues! More has been revealed about their journey. It seems the prophecy may require an Angarak king be in attendance as well as some sort of "sacrifice." It's obvous now how Zandramas plans to use Garion's son, making it more important for the party to rescue him. If only Zakath, Emperor of Mallorea, could be reasoned with to let them continue onwards. Urvon, in his effort to make a play for the Sardion, has summoned demons let them loose on the countryside, making the race to the Place Which Is No More even more hazardous. As if things could not get worse, a plague has struck the city where the party is being held, effectively sealing everyone in the city. And the Seeres of Kell has revealed that time is starting to run out if they hope to complete the prophecy of Light.

The pace picks back up in this one as our heroes must stop and over come many challenges. Eddings writes some pretty good action scenes. This is the book where the new party members, Sadi, Velvet and Toth, really feel like they're a part of things, each with their own role to play and not just replacements for those people we're missing from the first series. The character banter continues to be fun, though is toned down in the second half of the book where events become a tad more serious. The world building continues as the party goes much farther into the Mallorean continent than experienced previously. I almost wish I could visit Mal Zeth - just without the plague. ( )

Up until now the majority of these books have taken place in the West, or very briefly, in the lands of the Angoraks but with this book, we wenter the lands of the Malloreans, who share the eastern continent and who have their own civilisation. Various adventures ensue as the party find themselves captured by an emperor, chased by demons and a mad disciple, whilst still trying to run down Zandramas, the kidnapper of Garion's son, himself fated to become the new Dark Lord should things go wrong...

Another reread in the Mallorean series. There was not as much interaction with my favorite characters in this episode. But there was a lot of action to keep the story going. A lot more clues were revealed about the purpose of the quest and a few more important characters were introduced. ( )
