Enchanters' End Game

Enchanters' End Game, David Eddings (x2)

A good and satisfying end to the series, with a well-developed variant on the basic quest that has been driving the first four books. Just a well-served five-course meal, everything in its place but everything surprising enough to keep you enjoying new thing after new thing.

It is not the deepest book I've ever read, but I'm glad to have read it twice.

Castle of Wizardry

Castle of Wizardry, David Eddings (x2)

Awesome story continues and awesome stuff happens. Besides the standard fantasy elements like magical creatures and fights, Eddings is also quite good at architecture: the movement through specific spaces like mountains, tunnels and towers. Nice atmosphere, gripping, yes.
