Sparhawk shook his head. ‘Just a bath and a warm bed.’ He turned to his horse, who stood dozing with one hind leg cocked slightly so that his hoof rested on its tip. ‘Wake up, Faran,’ he told the animal.

Faran opened his eyes and gave him a flat, unfriendly stare.

‘Go with this knight,’ Sparhawk instructed firmly. ‘Don’t try to bite him, or kick him, or pin him against the side of the stall with your rump – and don’t step on his feet, either.’

The big roan briefly laid back his ears and then sighed.

~Chapter 1

Hahahahahahaa! Ahhhhhh, how can you not love that? Of course, that is about the third time that the word “flat” or “flatly” has been used and it’s only chapter 1. I’d forgotten that aspect of this trilogy.

I was 100% disappointed in this ending of this series. I picked up about 4 different phrases that were completely overused. This whole series seemed to be about being as shallow as possible and overusing specific phrases. Once again, I place all the blame squarely on Leigh’s shoulders. She has ruined the Eddings reputation in the fantasy circle as far as I’m concerned.

A pathetic whimpering ending to a pathetic whimpering series…

brainless drivel. His “originally” funny banter is now nothing but extremely overused cliche. This world seems to be inhabited by nothing but smartaleck, wisecracking ultimate warriors. Shallow drivel. Amazing what I’m allowing myself to read because of his past good writing. I blame it all on his wife, Leigh. Once her name got on the covers, everything went straight downhill.
