A brilliant fantasy epic set in a world extraordinary danger and magic from bestselling authors David and Leigh Eddings. They are called the Dreamers. They look like sleeping children. They are, in fact, Gods. Despite the literally earth-shattering climax of The Elder Gods, Dahlaine still does not regret having brought the Dreamers into the world of the Elder Gods. He only wishes he'd thought harder about the consequences. His sister Aracia fears the whole world will collapse in on itself if the Dreamers should all wake up and realize where they are. It's bad enough with them dreaming the future, but at least it's a future. Dahlain is pretty sure he's safe from an 'I-told-you-so' from Aracia. The Dreamers give the Elder Gods a chance in the battle against the vicious Ruler of the Wasteland. Then spies of very short stature start cropping up in Veltan's bucolic and peaceful domain.They look like people, or maybe they all look like the same person, but they are more sinister than that. Fortunately, Dahlaine is soon on the scene riding his thunderbolt. This second story of the sibling Gods is the story of the first God Dahlaine and his child Yaltar, who is so dangerous when asleep. And it is the story of the Treasured One, a mysterious presence who is controlling Yaltar's dreams!… (mehr)

I'm remembering why I didn't finish this series years ago. The character types are recycled from his other work. The plot is repetitive and simplistic, additionally its rehashed by multiple characters from their POV.

There is still something that makes me want to finish the series this time around. ( )

Jalkan stumbled back, spitting blood, teeth, and curses and he clawed at his knife-hilt. Keselo's sword, however, came out of its sheath more smoothly and rapidly. The young man put the point of his sword against the bone-thin Trogite's throat. "Drop it, Jalkan," he said quite firmly. "Drop the knife, or I'll kill you right here on the spot." "But this peasant just hit me!" Jalkan screamed. "That's a hanging offense! I'm an officer!" "Not anymore, you aren't," Narasan declared in a flat tone of voice. "I've put up with you for much too long already, and you've just given me something that I've been waiting for. Your army career is finished, Jalkan, and good riddance." "You can't do that!" Jalkan screamed at Narasan. "I paid gold for my commission! Gold!" -from The Treasured One

a bit more intriguing than the previous book. But it seems like the good guys just can’t lose. Even tho, in the real world, I guess that is how things will turn out. Thank God! ( )

This review covers all four of the "Dreamers" series. I don't even know where to start. I am a big fan of David Eddings. His Belgariad/Malloreon and Elenium/Tamuli series are just great fun fantasy, and if there are some characters from one world that remind you characters from the other world, that's only natural.

"The Dreamers" series is a completely different matter. Eddings' fans who are yet to get their hands on that series - keep your hands where they are, and avoid touching it. The word "Dissapointment" doesn't get close enough. "Insolence" is closer to the mark, but I'm yet to locate the exact word in the English language to describe these books.
I have some theories that could explain the sudden plummeting of quality. I hope that one of them is true, as I'm a big fan of Eddings' earlier work.
1.The meddling wife: While his earlier work is signed by David Eddings alone, although he kept thanking his wife, Leigh, for her help, that series is signed by both of them. The first time they had both names on a book was at "Polgara the Sorceress". That book, while it is moderately fun to read for the freaks of the Belgariad/Malloreon, is quite repetitive, if not redundant, after you'd read "Belgarath the Sorcerer". However, it seems that it kept a decent level of humor and witticism, David Eddings' trademark. "The Redemption of Althalus", again signed by both David & Leigh, has started down the slippery slope of repetition. It seemed rather forced at times (I never felt anything forced at the Belgariad/Malloreon or the Elenium/Tamuli), but it was a single book and was quite fun for the most part. The Dreamers series is at the bottom of that above-mentioned slippery slope. Not only it is repetitive, it seems that whole parts of it are just copy/paste from the previous chapter. If the blame lies with the "meddling wife", I'll say that Leigh wrote the whole series and just added David's name on the cover in order to boost revenue.

2."Getting even with the bastard publisher": Well, first of all, it is clear that the publisher shares the responsibility of ever publishing the "Dreamers" abomination. My theory here is double pronged: Either the publisher forced an extremely tight schedule, and the Eddings couple thought "You know what, you bastard? We told you there's no way we'll get past the initial draft in such a short time, so that's exactly what you'll get!" and handed over their initial draft. They probably thought there's no way the publisher will even consider publishing such a pile of goat droppings. Well, I guess that the publisher gave them quite the nasty surprise... The other alternative is that they some financial disagreement, so David and Leigh threw their hands in the air and announced "That's what you paid us for, so that's what you gonna get!" This "Bastard publisher" theory has some merit, but it does not explain the "Redemption of Althalus".
3. The "writing Class" theory: Maybe the "Dreamers" series was meant only for wannabe fantasy writers in order to: a) show them how an initial draft might look like; b)provide an exemplary badly written fantasy.
4. The medical condition theory: I truly hope that both David and Leigh are in perfect condition, but it is possible that whoever wrote that document, known as the "dreamers", had gone through some brain damaging condition. I hope not.

All in all, unless you're a wannabe fantasy writer, keep away from that toxic dump site of the "Dreamers". It tarnishes Eddings' reputation no end, and it is just a horrible series of books that make even "Trash novels" look good.

The introduction to more characters and an additional set of bad guys keeps the conflict from getting stale. A different area to guard also adds more variety to the battles, especially the end one. Not quite as good as the first, but that is more my personal taste in characters than anything lacking in the book itself. ( )
