David Eddings is one, or is, my favorite author. Being only twelve I see fit to add that I have read little of the fantasy books in store for me, but so far, his books are wonderful. Demon Lord of Karanda is my favorite book in the series, so far. I have read all of the books in the Belgariad and the first four in the Mallorean, and this is the best book, except I have not read the Seer's of Keel, but I know that will be good, judging that book is as good as this one.

I love the little twists that come in everywhere in this book, such as the little twist about Feldegast I was completely surprised. I won't go into details in case people have not read this book, but when I found out his true identity, I almost died with laughter, or course it was during the middle of a small battle but oh well. Also, the story about Velvet, and why she really came along was so very funny and creative I still awe at it.

Who could forget Kal Zakath? It really is amazing. You think that he is going to be the worst person in the history of Mallorea, and as it turns out, Belgarion came still become his friend. I felt so sorry for him when the poison that HAD no antidote. What concluded was mind-baffling. I knew that there had to be a reason for that flower.

Any way, as you can probably tell I loved this little book. Especially the demons that came into play, but really I loved the whole book. I rated this book a 5 because it is so well written and so fun to read. I hope that everyone reads this book, especially if they love fantasy books.

All right, all right. I'm the first to admit that fantasy actually is not my favorite genre in the world. Give me a Stephen King novel every time. Not this time! David Eddings is my little exception to the rule. I've read all the Belgariad/Malloreon series. Personally I have to say that this is one of my favorites in the set. (I am biased. I think Zakath is probably the most interesting character in the books, and if I could I'd probably run away with him--forget Cyradis.)Anyway, Mighty Prudish Hero Garion & Company are taken prisoner by most dread Emperor of boundless Mallorea, Kal Zakath--except Zakath actually turns out to be a pretty nice guy. He's just lonely and needs attention..sort of like a puppy actually, except he doesn't chew on your shoes or make wee-wee on the carpet. *grins*After a rather serious bout with exotic Nyissan spices dumped in his last super by the one-and-only Zandramas, Zakath learns the truth about the Murgo King and decides that crucifying Murgos is getting boring anyway, taking Garion and friends back to Mal Zeth with him. Unfortunately, your friendly neighbourhood plague decides to drop by and visit, so the city is sealed off--no one can come or go. Including the Child of Light. Well OF COURSE they escape! It's Garion here. But I think I won't tell you the rest. Read it and find out for yourself. :-)
