Publisher's Summary

The Pandion Knight Sparhawk had bested the massed forces of the God Cyrgon upon the field of battle. But 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 Cyrgon's lackeys had misjudged their foe. 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, and from fetid places beyond human ken.

Still, the full magnitude of their peril was yet to be revealed...Cyrgon had dared the unthinkable: He had called forth Kleal, Bhelliom's opposite, to rend the very world asunder. Thus, as it had ever been decreed, would Bhelliom and Kleal contend for the fate of this world--even as the man Sparhawk must finally face the God Cyrgon, in mortal combat and alone...

    "A good conclusion to the series."

    This is a good story that ties up all lose ends from the series nicely. I enjoyed it and did not have any problems with the narrarator that a small but incredibly vocal minority seemed to have. The key is that out of 136 reviews the nararrator still averages 4.3 stars so you do the math. Once again , I advise listening to the sample and coming to your own conclusion on the quality of the narraration. Still, worth a credit in my opinion.

    "The bad guys folly"

    the bad guys kidnap the queen and her handmaid. Big mistake there. now the Troll gods, the child god, and worst of all the queens champion and husband Sparhawk, with his companions are not happy. Honestly I like how the troll gods think is a suitable form of punishment, but I'm a pyro. so where to they run and hide.

    the thing I love the most about Shinning Ones is what I love here more. there is now points of view of eight different friends. each has there own tasks to do in order to save the queen and win the war of a forgotten god.

    Also still loving the great team he did in secret with his wife Leah Eddings to make the characters more alive. this is a exciting conclusion to two trilogies that has a major twist that I enjoy greatly.

    "Good Story - Bad Narrator"
    Would you try another book from David Eddings and/or Kevin Pariseau?

    I love David Eddings but dont think i will purchase anymore books narrated by Kevin Pariseau


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Hidden City?

    When Sparhaw realized his destiny


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kevin Pariseau?

    Cameron Beierle, Jim Dale, Dick Hill


    Was The Hidden City worth the listening time?

    yes, if you overlooked the mispronunciation by the narrator

    "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!

    Story
    "A worthy conclusion."

    After Sparhawk and his companions successfully rest the misguided Trolls from the control of te dark god Cyrgon by releasing their true gods from Bhelliom, thereby forcing Cyrgon, who had taken on the appearance of the god Gworg, to revert to his true form. But the victory turns to ashes, for upon returning to the city of Matherion, Sparhawk discovers that Ehlana, along with Alean, her favorite Llady in Waiting, has been kidnapped by the mad styric sorcerer Zalasta, who had long covetted Sephrenia and allied himself with first Azash and now Cyrgon in his quest to slay Aphrael and seize the woman he desires. Now, Sparhawk is ordered to surrender Bhelliom to Cyrgon in exchange for Ehlana and Alean's lives. But it quickly becomes apparent that Cyrgon is no longer the most urgent threat facing the companions, for in his desperation Cyrgon forced one of his greatest magicians to summon the demonic spirit known as Klael. This spirit, it is revealed, is Bhelliom's evil opposite, a creature so powerful that none, not even the gods, can control it. Indeed, those who summon it quickly become its tools. Can Sparhawk and his friends free Ehlana and Alean before it's too late? And even if they do, will they be able to defeat Cyrgon and more importantly Klael?
    As before this was a very worthwhile listen. At least the narrator is consistent in his pronunciations, even if some of them are a bit quirky. And I will say that he does have a good voice for narration.

    "Love the Trolls!"

    The Tamuli is a good series if you can get beyond the clumsy pronunciation of some words by the narrator - however, in this book I particularly loved the way he portrayed the Trolls - what fun! Favorite characters still appear, heroes wrestle with the bad guys and somehow succeed despite the odds - all the usual elements of this genre are there. I didn't want the story to end.

    "Great story"

    The only reason I rate this 4 stars instead of 5 stars is because the narration of the book sucks . The voices of the characters sound so similar its hard to tell who supposed to be speaking and ,the ones that do sound different have accents that don't come close to being part of the storyline scene.
    The story itself is great.I recommend this audio book to anyone .Just realize if you are used to a much better quality narration ,the story does suffer from it.

    "The Hidden City: The Tamuli, Book 3"

    This is a fabulous unisex multi age book, their is humour, love, romance and a bit of gore (for the boys) my nefew also enjoyed this book and others from the same author, I have read this series of books more than once, just keep going back to them. I am not a total fantasy fan, I read a wide range of books, but really enjoyed the David Eddings bookds this is a really good book for any age, apart from the really young.
