The Diamond Throne (The Elenium #1)

I first came across David Eddings quite by chance while browsing the fantasy section of my local library as a 14 year old and I was instantly hooked. The book in question, The Pawn of Prophecy, had a very laid back easy to read style of writing that is enjoyable to read by those of all ages, without ever feeling like a children’s book. It is still one of the first books I ever suggest to friends and family, especially for the younger reader. The Diamond Throne however is an entirely different animal.
