Comments The Hidden City

  • Althea Ann

    Finally slogged my way all the way to the end of this, "Book 3 of the Tamuli." Characters ran around, killed other characters, rescued lovely maidens/wives in distress, and eventually pretty much all got married.Again, I know these are huge bestsellers, but they just didn't really do it for me.(Although, I have to admit, the insights here into Troll culture are pretty funny.)

  • Jordan

    What a way to end a series.David Eddings' career was always fascinating to me, largely because many of his fans view it as a parabola. He started out mediocre, and rose to greatness quickly, eventually descending back into mediocrity with the subpar Dreamers saga.But the Elenium and the Tamuli are, in my opinion, beyond anything he's ever written.Being book 6 in the Elenium/Tamuli storyline, I suppose there's no real reason to convince you to read this book because, quite frankly, you've stuck w [...]

  • Danica

    And finally we reach the end of a spectacular journey. I loved all of these books, and I know that I'll look back fondly on Sparhawk's adventures in years to come. It saddens me that there aren't more books to go along with this particular story, but at the same time I must tell myself (if only to make myself feel better) that sometimes less is more. Just because Eddings could have expanded this series doesn't mean that he should have. Both the Elenium and the Tamuli are trilogies that I would l [...]

  • Amanda

    The best of the trilogy, mostly because we skipped between plentiful points of view and that definitely kept the action going. It was still plagued with sexist and racist representation (the Atans, with their yellow skin and black hair, for example, and the way that both women and men see the other sex in a derogatory fashion. "But she's a woman!" from one soldier, regarding a female warrior. I'm glad we've come further forwards than this). Aphrael was about the worst character around - constant [...]

  • Kelly

    The third and final book of the Tamuli. Sparhawk and his friends work to rescue Ehlana. Not only must they battle Zalasta and his insane son Scarpa, but also Cyrgon and Khael--Bhellion's opposite. The eventually find their way to Cyrga, which has been hidden fir millennia. While fighting Cyrgon, Sparhawk realizes that he truly is the son of Bhellion and has the powers of a god. Powers which he asks Bhellion to take away so he can be a mortal man.Ehlana is rescued, the world is saved, Vanion and [...]

  • Jacob Aitken

    A fine ending to a near-perfect series. I do want to make an observation about the deities in the Elenium/Tamuli cosmology. The Styric Younger Gods seem to be spinoffs of Greek and Roman mythology, and that's fine. But the Elder Gods, Cyrgon, and the Troll Gods are more "elemental." If they are "elemental," would that not place them closer to the Titans in Greek mythology?

  • Tim Gray

    As ever entertaining and engaging fantasy. Both plot and characters very well realised as ever with the Eddings.

    Full review coming soon.

    Fun read. Black hats and white hats. :-)

    Originally posted on Once Upon a Bookcase.The final book in The Tamuli! And what a book!After Sparhawk released the Troll-Gods up in Atan, they took back control of the Trolls and turned them against Cyrgon and his Cyrgai. Being butchered and eaten by the Trolls, the ranks of the Cyrgai fall, causing Cyrgon to do the unthinkable - release Klæl. The brother and opposite of Bhelliom, Klæl is a monster beyond all imagining, and Cyrgon is a fool to think he can control it.Unbeknownst to Sparhawk, [...]

    WAR TO THE DEATH 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 [...]

  • Geoffery Crescent

    By far the best of the Tamuli series, the Hidden City doesn't quite match up to the dizzying heights of the Sapphire Rose, but it's a nice ending for Sparhawk and co's exploits. It's main flaw is introducing game-changing concepts this late in the series. You kind of get the feeling Bhelliom or Aphrael or someone would have mentioned Klael, the ultimate evil, before. He just sort of pops up and wreaks havoc without much explanation. And he looks like a giant pointy headed bat, which is a bit sil [...]

  • Heather

    At long last, I've finished this book. It took me far, far too long. It was a long book and I've had a busy time. I think the reason I took so long, though, was that I didn't really want to have to say goodbye to these characters again. I have a tendency to put off finishing a book when I know it's the last in a series.I love the way Eddings characterized the people. They seemed, in many ways, to be quite real. Pretty much everything is tied up in a neat little bow. Many, many of the characters [...]

  • Neville Ridley-smith

    So, I finally finished all the Sparhawk books.I'm finding this hard to sum up. Let's go with positives and negatives.Positives:- the trolls are fun - Eddings has fun with their speech and ways of thinking- when there's actual description and action, it's so easy to visualise, and fun- Talen's always enjoyable- some of the banter is genuinely funny- (view spoiler)[at one point it looks like Eddings actually kills off a main character! (hide spoiler)]- (view spoiler)[there's a damsel in distress i [...]

  • Vera Maslow

    Sparhawk's journey comes to a close. Though the Tamuli was a trilogy it all really started in the Elenium trilogy. I enjoyed this last one. I liked how it all came together and connected. I like the humor in these Eddings books. I would laugh out loud at some parts. I found that even though there are many male characters and our main character is male the female characters shine in the story. It is nice to see many strong female roles in fantasy books. It makes it so that this can be enjoyable b [...]

  • Darren

    (No specific spoilers, but there are some general hints)The first two books, really the first 5 books since it this follows on the heels of the previous trilogy, were successful because of the interplay between the characters. It was a team who worked together. No individual character was very deep, but the group interaction hid the rather sparse way they were drawn - a single characteristic, or maybe two would separate them.Unfortunately, Eddings broke them all into teams of two or three and ha [...]

  • Jak

    The third and final book of the Tamuli, The Hidden City, sees Sparhawk and his clan finally win through triumphant in climatic battle (though not as climatic as many over books in the genre) and all loose ends gets tied up in a nice neat bow.The series is the same as the Belgariad/Mallorion and while still worth a read the format is getting over used. The wit and batter which is charming to begin with also reached the end of it’s welcome by the end of the series (which with the Belgarion books [...]

  • Mark Austin

    ★ - Most books with this rating I never finish and so don't make this list. This one I probably started speed-reading to get it over with.★★ - Average. Wasn't terrible, but not a lot to recommend it. Probably skimmed parts of it.★★★ - Decent. A few good ideas, well-written passages, interesting characters, or the like.★★★★ - Good. This one had parts that inspired me, impressed me, made me laugh out loud, made me think - it got positive reactions and most of the rest of it was [...]

  • Dark-Draco

    The final book in the Tamuli series - a really good ending.Sparhawk and his allies have to travel into the city of his enemy in order to rescue Ehlana, but knowing it is a trap, they have to come up with some devious ways of turning the tide of war back in their favour. With so many peoples involved, not everything can run smoothly, especially when you have hungry trolls and shining angels in the mix. But the ultimate 'trick' lies with the 'Blue Rose' and what Sparhawk's ultimate destiny is.I re [...]

  • Amle

    This is more a review of the entire Tamuli series than just an individual observation.Overall I found that the books had too many characters and that the story jumped around too much between them. That however was not as vexing as the constant repetition of things that had already been told earlier in the story and at points, earlier in the same chapter.Despite this there were plenty of beautiful moments that made me completely forgive the poor editing.I found myself reveling at the intricate an [...]

  • Malloreon

    Yikes Eddings really fell off in his dotage! After spending all his creative juices on the 13 books that comprised the Belgarion series, this final Sparhawk trilogy comes off very flat-footed and uninspired. The multitudinous religions, gods, trolls, monsters, languages, cultures, countries etc. just seem to blend together in a haphazard mess leaving the reader too bored, overwhelmed and unmotivated to invest their mental faculties into appreciating the variety of Edding's fantasy landscape. Thi [...]

  • Nathan

    And the Tamuli series comes to a close with the good guys finding the Evil God and bashing him up with a magic stone while making one-liners. I think I've reached the conclusion that Eddings (with the possible exception of the Belgariad) didn't actually set out to write serious fantasy novels. Rather, he writes a form of pastiche of the fantasy novel. Really, most of his stuff is as tongue-in-cheek as the Thraxas books or Pratchett. I certainly hope that an author who has a queen worry about her [...]

  • Talya Andor

    David Eddings is a go-to favorite for fantasy, where his strengths are roughly the same as his weaknesses. His storylines are predictable so there are no surprises, his serious plots are interspersed with a lot of banter (that sometimes gets to be a little bit much) and good faces off with evil in an ultimate showdown that is both reminiscent of his earlier Elenium trilogy and the ideas from his Belgariad/Mallorean series. Really it's all the same concept but Eddings kept exploring different ang [...]

  • ms bookjunkie

    I love this series like damn and whoa (and reread it whenever I want adventure, camaraderie and warm fuzzies), but it does have some jarring inconsistencies that drive me absolutely batty.(view spoiler)[Inconsistency #1: Sephrenia in book 1: I assume Aphrael can fly but have never seen her do so.Sephrenia in book 3: I hate it when Aphrael takes me flying because it terrifies the crap out of me.Inconsistency #2:At the end of book 3 a statement was made about how King Wargun died. Except, as of pa [...]

  • Chrystal

    Between the the books from the first series (The Elenium) and the second series (the Tamuli), The Hidden City is the best out of all 6 books. It has the fastest pase where more things are accomplished. Also there is more action and plot. It does get confusing though because there are a lot of people and the books jumps around alot. Ending is kind of abrupt compared to how long the series took to build up the story. Sparhawk's main purpose is almost laughable compared to what the guy went through [...]

  • Jennifer

    The one thing you can probably always depend on Eddings for is that he concludes his adventures with bang. This trilogy really did not have almighty bang, one that resulted in many collapsing buildings. It can be argued that this trilogy did follow nearly the identical formula as its prequelling trilogy. This doesn't really bother me to much as it is still very an excellent read and one I will read time and time again!

  • Lonnie Smith

    It definitely ends better than it started, but I struggled with the lack of real struggle here. The good guys were always one step (or two or three) ahead of the bad guys and there was never a time I wondered if the good guys would actually win, enough that the main character was made all powerful at the end and could do anything he wanted. It cheapened the struggle somewhat, but other than that a good read and fun!

  • Andria

    I finished this series in honor of my father who had a stroke after he read book three of the six books in this series. I loved the series and it was very funny which is what kept me reading on but this one just seemed to be about rounding out all the remaining battles and finishing them up. I would have liked more of the story line of elysoun. She was a refreshing surprising twist of character.

  • Hannah

    I found the ending "big battle" rather an anti-climax after all the set-up. Would have thought there'd be more done with it, considering it was technically such an earth-shaking event. Oh well. Still enjoyable, and a real shame that Sparhawk drops the superhuman powers at the end. Why do all these heroes give up their super powers even when they're handed to them on a silver platter? Either way, it's sad to see the familiar Elenium/Tamuli cast go, but go they must.

  • Mirta Martin

    I was glad to get all of the books in this series as a Christmas present, because I at the moment I finished one book I had to start the next one. And I recommend to all of you who still haven´t read these: buy them all before starting to read, or you will regret it the moment you finish one book and realize you don´t have the next one yet.These books can make anyone fall in love with fantasy.
