As an avid reader of David Edding's writing, I must say I was rather dissappointed by this book. There was little wrong with the plotline, in fact I rather enjoyed the plot line, the whole idea of the dreamers is a very clever stroyline only I did not find it quite so cleverly written. At first I found the different views to my advantage, for example hearing Jalkans view progressed the story and filled in those little details needed to satisfy my curiousity. After a while I did however find that these viewpoints became repetitive. I feel I do not need to know every tiny little detail about every characters life as it leaves little to the imagination I also noticed there is not actually that much mention of the actual dreamers through out the book which slightly defeated the objective for me. After reading The Elder Gods this did not progress the story at an ideal pace and although I would rate it highly for ideas, I feel in these circumstances there ideas didn't make up for the writing style but still the book was worth a read and I only hope the next one will be an improvement!
