Ehlana, Queen of Elenia, had been poisoned. A deep enchantment sustained her life, but only while the Knights aiding it still lived - and, already, they were dying, one each month. Then Sparhawk, the knight and Queen's Champion, learned that the cure for the poison was Bhelliom, the great jewel lost when Sarak of Thalesia died in battle 500 years before.

I listened to The Diamond Throne and couldn't wait to listen to the The Ruby Knight. I listened to it in two days and I am looking forward to The Sapphire Rose. Again I would recommend this series to anyone looking for a good read or listen.

Sparhawk, the Pandion Knight and Queen's Champion, returns from a long spell of exile to find his native land overrun with evil and intrigue, and his young Queen grievously ill. Indeed, Ehlana lies magically entombed within a block of crystal, doomed to die unless a cure can be found within a year.

The first part was slow and I thought for sure this book was a dud, but when Sparhawk's friends enter the story they liven it up. I am very picky about my fantasy stories and this is one that has made my list. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good book.

I have read all the Sherlock Holmes books and have enjoyed each one over and over again. The audio book is just as good and the narrator is easy to listen too. He doesn't over do the English accent and he doesn't under do it.
