Demon Lord of Karanda by David Eddings (The Malloreon, #3) – 5 Star Review!

downloadStory Rating: *****
Cover Rating: C

Can I just start out by saying that I’m in love with Zaketh, the bad guy in this series? He’s an incredibly diverse character. David Eddings is an incredibly talented writer to make me both hate the bad guy, and totally sympathize with him – plus, I feel that he’s the only “crush-worthy” character outside of Silk (but maybe I have an odd taste).

The Seeress of Kell is also a dynamic character who has multiple faucets to her personality, although they appear very slowly versus the immediate, obvious duplicity of Zaketh. Our beloved main characters are as lovable and true to themselves as ever, and the story is packed full of action. Once again, the urgency to reach their destination mounts in this third volume, and the reader is given the sense of time passing much too quickly for the characters.

The cover isn’t particularly eye-catching and it gives only a moderately good idea of what the readers might find inside the story. (Please note: the cover rated is the mass market paperback cover that I own. There are other formats with other covers available.)
