Synopsis

The Crystal Gorge by David, Eddings, Leigh Eddings

The Dreamers are children teetering on the brink of divinity. They have the power to change the world with their dreams.

The Elder Gods have defeated the Vlagh twice with the aid of the Dreamers and the mysterious Treasured One who seems, worryingly, to be controlling them but the unspeakable Creature of the Wasteland is on the fast track to world domination as the time approaches for the Younger Gods to take their place.

Now all the varied resources of the domains of the Gods are marshalled to bring a halt to the spread of evil. But there is pestilence and skirmishing, and suddenly the balance of power shifts.

The Ruler of the Wasteland has infiltrated another domain of the Gods, the land of short summers, where bison and deer roam. There the strange and marvellous crystal gorge, which can be no natural formation of rock, is destined to become a battleground of great beauty and great terror.

The enemy is closer to knowing the secrets of the Treasured One and the Dreamers are in grave danger of delivering a nightmare to the world of the Elder Gods.

Reviews

Praise for David Edings:

'My ideal summer read Having enjoyed the entire ten-book serial, I was delighted to be able to read this latest addition as it not only provides fantastic escapism in itself, but, being a prequel, will make my re-reading of the other books all the more fascinating.'
The Irish Times

'All the verve and pace we've come to expect.'
The Dark Side

'Theres no denying Eddings' offerings do entertain. This novel is for fantasy fans fed up with more fusty fare, or for anyone who likes mischief and merriment.'
West Australian
