This week I’m continuing with the sequel series to The Elenium for Book Series Wednesday! It’s Domes of Fire by David Eddings! Spoilers for The Elenium after the jump!
Plot Synopsis: Domes of Fire returns the reader to the world of The Elenium and the adventures of Sparhawk – Pandion Knight and Prince Consort to Queen Ehlana of Elenia.
Plot: The plot’s pretty good, although it lacks the urgency of the first series, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It does heat up in the sequels, but this is a necessary laying of plot threads. Expect the same amount of casual violence that you saw in The Elenium to return.
Characters: Kurik’s son Kalad is probably my new favorite character along with the returning cast. I’m a little sad that Kurik died at the end of The Sapphire Rose, but Kalad is a worthy successor to his role. Stragen is also a welcome addition.
Overall: This is a great sequel series, and while this is a set up book, it’s very well done.
