In an ancient kingdom, the legacy of one royal family hangs in the balance, and the fate of a queen–and her empire–lies on the shoulders of one knight.
Sparhawk, Knight and Queen’s Champion, has returned to Elenia after ten years of exile, only to find young Queen Ehlana trapped in a crystalline cocoon. The enchantments of the sorceress Sephrenia have kept the queen alive–but the spell is fading. In the meantime, Elenia is ruled by a prince regent, the puppet of the tyrannical Annias, who vows to seize power over all the land.
Now Sparhawk must find the legendary Bhelliom, a sapphire that holds the key to Ehlana’s cure. Sparhawk and his companions will face monstrous foes and evil creatures on their journey, but even greater dangers lie in wait: for dark legions will stop at nothing to reach the radiant stone, which may possess powers too deadly for any mortal to bear.

I admit it, I enjoy the Eddings. They write big sprawling books that are pure escapism. When I stop my world long enough to read, I don't want the "Great American Novel" full of angst. I want entertainment with enjoyable characters, Good vs. Evil plots and enough travel to get me out of my day to day rut. I can snicker over Sparhawk's horse, Faran, and his nasty attitude and appreciate the pragmatic, broken-nosed Pandion who would never think he could be anyone's Paladin.
