    Six years had passed since the redoubtable knight Sparhawk had triumphed over the evil God Azash and returned to Elenia with Queen Ehlana, his bride. And now a new danger had arisen to threaten the peace of Ehlana's realm. The trouble had started quietly. At home, bandits began to plague the hill country. In neighboring Lamorkand, the customary political unrest turned ominous with whispers that the bloody heroes of old soon would rise again.

    Story

    I was sceptical at first as many people don't seem to have liked the narrator. If you can get over the fact that he has interesting pronunciation of a (very) few words, and the accent he gives Zalasta is atrocious (not the accent I imagined for him!) then it is quite enjoyable. I really liked the narrators more humorous style compared to the narrator of the Elenium, as I have always loved the humour in Eddings' books. I would recommend that if you want to listen to the Tamuli, don't listen to it immediately after the Elenium as the two narrators are so different. Listen to something else (or several somethings) in between the two series and then you might enjoy it as much as I did!

    The Pandion Knight Sparhawk had bested the massed forces of the God Cyrgon upon the field of battle, victory turned to ashes when the foul God's minions kidnapped Sparhawk's wife, the beautiful Queen Ehlana. Sparhawk must surrender Bhelliom, the awesome jewel of power - or Ehlana would die.But Sparhawk fought on, and none of his companions flinched from the awesome struggle, though each must vanquish forces of evil from Tamuli's dark past.

    Cliff says: "A good conclusion to the series."
    "Sad it's all over..."

    I loved reading and listening to these books. The only bad part was Zalasta's accent. The narrator brings a lot of humour to the story, which is key for any book by David Eddings. I particularly loved Bhlokw - he steals every scene!
