Notes: E: Violence
Dreamers, No. 1
By David & Leigh
The Elder Gods, David and Leigh Eddings begin another masterpiece
fantasy series. "The Dreamers" series tells the story
of the land of Dhrall and the gods and goddesses who rule the four
four elder gods who began creation are asleep while the four younger
ones finish the job. They work in cycles, with four sleeping while
the other four tend to their creation. The four younger gods who
rule now are nearing the end of their cycle, but all eight of them
have a nemesis in the vast Wasteland that occupies the center of
Dhrall. That-Called-the-Vlag is a monster that wants to rule all
the world. For centuries it has laid its plans, even experimenting
with breeding its servants for specific tasks. It even has an army
which is too individually stupid to be afraid, but, ruled by an
overmind, can be very deadly.
when the younger gods are nearing the end of their cycle and before
the elder gods awake, it is almost ready to attack. It is sending
its servants into each Domain to gather information.
intrusion of strange creatures was first noticed by Dahlaine, the
eldest of the four siblings and ruler of the Domain of the North.
He visited his siblings with a gift: a special human child to raise.
These were the prophesied Dreamers, the ones whose dreams would
tell Dahlaine, Aracia of the East, Veltan of the South and Zelana
of the West how to defeat That-Called-the-Vlag.
with detail, The Elder Gods is fascinating reading. It is the beginning
of another best-selling Eddings fantasy series. I anxiously await
the next volume! For both science fiction and fantasy lovers, this
is a must read!
