Crystal Gorge

by David & Leigh Eddings
Release date: June 2005
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasyhigh fantasy

After two devastating defeats and the utter annihilation of two armies, the hideous Vlagh still vows to invade the land of Dhrall. A voracious insectile overmind, she can breed millions of soldiers in mere days and even evolve entire new species in just a week.

At first, Dhrall's mortal defenders – a motley bunch of mercenaries, pirates, horse lords, and lone heroes like the archer Longbow-are certain they'll prevail again. Most are now battle-hardened veterans, and the natives of Dhrall are fierce bison hunters and bear slayers, ready to fight.

But while the Vlagh's past servants were giant, venomous, and mindless bugs, it has now created perfect spies: new minions with a man's appearance and intelligence. Corrupted by the agents of the Vlagh, the human tribes are soon at one anothers' throats.

Far, far worse for mortals is the fact that the Gods can no longer be trusted. For, nearing the end of their 25,000 year cycle, the Elder Gods are doddering toward senility and dementia. And to add to mankind's plight, a strange mysterious entity is manipulating the forces in the upcoming strife and neither gods nor mortals know its true intentions.

Now, beset by astonishing, dire challenges, Longbow and his fellow mortals must wage a bitter war against a supernatural enemy – one that has evolved in ways they could have never imagined...

I have to agree with previous review. This book isn't worth to read. Eddings was one of my favourite authors when i was younger but this last series dissapointed me greatly. Haven't even bothered to read last volume. However taking to consideration that Leigh passed away 2007 and David 2009 I can understand lack of quality in this series. Perhaps they just wanted to write one last series together...

The Crystal Gorge is the third book of The Dreamers series. In my opinion David and Leigh Eddings should've thought twice before they began to write this series. All the previous books have been bad and this book is also bad. I can't recommend this book to anybody.
