Oh, man, this is my adolescence right here. This has the creepy possessed lady which is both gross and was yet strangely compelling. Obviously formula, but it was the best late 80s/early 90s slash for a young mind - Tynian and Ulath are clearly, um "hetero life-mates" in the book. I have very fond memories of this, even though I have Eddings I like much, much better. ( )

Still loving it...still the expected amount of resolution to the acutal story line. Here's hoping he doesn't leave me hanging after The Saphire Rose!

I miss Flute. (I totally figured that out way ahead of time by the way!) ( )

First words
It was in the twenty-fifth century when the hordes of Otha of Zemoch invaded the Elene kingdoms of western Eosia and swept all before them with fire and sword in their march to the west. (Prologue)
It was well after midnight, and a dense gray fog had crept in off the Cimmura River to mingle with the pervading wood smoke from a thousand chimneys to blur the nearly deserted streets of the city.
