    1. I've read this book many times, so many, in fact, that the pages are falling out. What I adore is Eddings' complete, unassailable, and believable world that he creates. The world that this series, and its sister series (The Tamuli) I think is more solid than even his first world/series. This is epic fantasy, make no mistake. Our hero treks about the globe hunting down powerful magical objects, slaying gods, and building a reputation for himself that makes everyone cringe. But, it's done with a g [...]

    2. This was my favourite of the three! It's definitely a great conclusion to the trilogy, but at the same time it doesn't leave things completely closed off with no chance of continuing the story. That's one of the things that makes me excited to start with The Tamuli next.There was, of course, sadness in the book and many conflicts, but Eddings managed to rise above it all and he carried us through to the end of the book.Flute and Talen have to be my favourite characters, but there are so many awe [...]

    3. Well, yay textbook mediaeval warfare! Jane-Rhea caught me laughing out loud when I got to the point where (not really a spoiler, this) they were being right well besieged in Rome that warm-temperate city with all the basillicas and popes and things and thinking themselves very clever to have manned the walls against the inept enemiesI was thinking 'ang on, even if they don't need a Roman sewer system because of the cleaning wizards, if the Vatican citadel doesn't have overground water supply it' [...]

    4. The Sapphire Rose is the third part in the Elenium and sees our heroes moving on from the events in The Ruby Knight as they endeavour to conquer and defeat the Elder God Azash, minions and various people it is ruling!:DAs you expect from the previous books the characters are all three-dimensional and fallible at the same time they are clearly, the ones on the good side at least, heroic with some of the rivals on the other side at least showing that they at some point have potential for good but [...]

    5. Two stars is generous here. Even as popcorn fantasy there are just so many problems with this book. First off, you could have skipped book 2 entirely and not missed anything. Even so, this book is far, far too long. It passes several good stopping points and just keep plowing on. The quest is just dragged on for entirely too much time, to where it becomes obvious that it's just there for the point of extending the story. The plot is full of holes that aren't just stereotypical fantasy tropes, bu [...]

    6. It was excelent until the last few chapters. When Kurik died, it was a heart-wrenching moment for me. (I spent the next 20 minutes crying and saying "Why, why, why did Kurik half to die?" Kurik was my favorite.)

    7. A nice endings, with solid character development and plot. I love the political intrigues of the Hierocracy.

    8. Cliched, but it's precisely what made it so accessible to someone like me, who's just dipping her toes in the fantasy genre; as an introductory series, I enjoyed it all in all.

    9. Final book in the trilogy. Have to say I am not a fan of the story. The characters were all so very glib; I couldn't relate to them and certainly wasn't fond of them. The whole relationship between the protagonist, Sparhawk, and Ehlena, his ward and later his queen, and even later his wife, was downright icky. I mean, he watched her grow up, tutored her and was her knight and champion, a role he inherited from his father. Then he is banished to another country for 10 years when she is 8. Then he [...]

    10. The Sapphire Rose is the final book in the David Eddings fantasy trilogy The Elenium, and overall it provides a satisfactory conclusion. There were even a few twists I wasn't expecting. Rather than summarize the book and give away some of the events of the earlier two books, I will simply say that The Sapphire Rose continues to tell the story of Sparhawk's quest to save his queen from death, while at the same time trying to prevent the evil god Azash from getting loose and wreaking havoc on th [...]

    11. Things I loved about the Elenium trilogy were the characters and their relationships. As in every book of Eddings I have read so far, the characters each have their own, distinct personality that distinguishes them from the others, but they are almost all likable in a way. The characters in the Elenium are less stereotypical than the ones in the Belgariad, which is also a positive point in my opinion, even though I didn't mind it too much in the Belgariad. Some of the villains are still just evi [...]

    12. I'm very, very sorry this series had to end.Just as I remembered from all those years ago when I read this series, it is an excellent read. The Sapphire Rose is a fine conclusion to the tale of Sparkhawk's epic quest to save his queen, and the world.The problematic elements of this fantasy remain (Eurocentrism, namely), but they don't jump out at you immediately, such is the entertainment provided by this book (and series).I remember a particular character's death hitting me very hard when I fir [...]

    13. I'm going to go out on a limb here and describe my favourite book in the Elenium trilogy as if it were a prog rock musical of epic proportions because that's a lot what it feels like to read it. We'll start with a joyous sort of female chorus with lots of flutes(sic) because hurrah! Bhellion has woken and cured Ehlana. Both she, and her warrior giantess companion Mirtai, add a touch of much needed female impetus to this traditional Eddings' sausage-fest. Next up there's some ecclesiastical droni [...]

    14. The third book in the trilogy begins where the second one ends - in the cave of the Troll-Dwarf, the Bhelliom in Sparhawk's hands. He and his companions hurry home, where they cure the Princess Ehlana then turn their attention to Annais, who has hurried to the city of Chyrellos to get himself head of the church. With lots of political manoeuvring, they attempt to scupper his plans, but it is they who are surprised when Martel, at the head of a large army, lays siege to the town. And once that is [...]

    15. The book definitely brings the series to a satisfying conclusion, but the denouement runs a little long (though, to be fair, getting the denouement the right length is something that lots of writers have problems with). Probably the bigger problem with the book's end is that, approaching the conclusion, it screams, "The writer got the publisher to agree to another trilogy, so he's going to lay some plot hooks for the next one!"This is aggravated by the fact that I'm reading the book's first prin [...]

    16. Okay, first I want to preface this by saying that the world-building and characters are still both fantastic elements of this trilogy. Every different part of the world feels fully-realized, and the characters are unique and memorable. I have no problems with either of these things.Neither did I find any problems with the action sequences. I thought they were written well and moved the plot along at a decent pace. The fighting was handled well and I could follow what was happening without too mu [...]

    17. This entire series is pretty one dimensional, in a science fiction/fantasy sort of way. There are good and bad guys, and some people that are supposed to be "bad guys", but they just had rough lives and are really good at heart. There are castles, knights, some limited magic that the author never attempts to explain, and heavy religious overtones. The knights in the books are bloody and vicious, but everyone just shakes their heads, lightly punches them on their iron clad shoulders and say "aw, [...]

    18. První dva díly jsem zhltla jako malinu, proto pro mě byl děsný šok, když jsem narazila na začátek trojky. Najednou to bylo všechno upocené, nezáživné a napětí se někam vytratilo. Až jsem se lekla, že mi nezbyde nic jiného, než dát jen dvě hvězdy. Když se však vyřešily trampoty v hlavním městě a začalo se intrikovat při volbě arcipreláta, tak se Sparhawk oklepal a děj začal opět nabírat na obrátkách. Finále, a tím nemyslím jen finální souboj se zloduc [...]

    19. As with the the rest of the trilogy, I liked it, it was entertaining enough. But I have to say this final book in the trilogy dragged a *lot* in places. The pace seemed to slow right down, maybe attempting to build up to what was ultimately a big overblown scene at the end. Happy enough to have read it and happy enough to have finished it. Not too pushed about reading the follow up trilogy, though I wouldn't rule it out.(Hmm Maybe 2.5 stars would be a better representation of how I felt about t [...]

    20. excellent series i came across while sifting through my collection and started reading it just because i had nothing better to read but i must say it is a very lovely series the series ender is very interestingall three books are very well written and very well composed the plot goes on a little slow for my taste but i loved them anywayi recommend it to anyone who loves a mixture of adventure thrilling plot and a little romance is indeed a very good series

    21. Plot, characters and writing amazing, but its like everytime Edding writes a series he is bored by the end. Another rushed ending with an epilogue which not only wraps things up but does so with a bow on top. Quick ending to an epic battle (such a let down) with plenty of closure in the epilogue (i love closure). Not a 5* because the ending

    22. An okay read, but the 'romance' seemed a bit forced and undeveloped. While we do have gods jumping in to save things a few times there is a satisfying amount of human battles and efforts. As always, I really enjoy Eddings' humor the most and he keeps me chuckling rather regularly here. I think I'll take a break from him before the Tamuli though, else I might get utterly sick of his style.

    23. I'm really disappointed with this last book. I still don't care for the characters that much. Especially not when you compare them to those in the Belgariad. There was entirely too much fighting. Frankly, this book could have been edited down to half it's size and been fine.

    24. EDDINGS RE-READ: The Sapphire Rose, BOOK THREE OF THE ELENIUMBecause we just don’t have enough to do, Alex, Joanne and I have decided to re-read The Elenium and The Tamuli trilogies by David (and Leigh) Eddings, and – partly to justify that, partly because it’s fun to compare notes – we’re blogging a conversation about each book. We respond to each other in the post itself, but you can find Tehani’s post over here and Jo’s post here if you’d like to read the conversation going on [...]

    25. In THE SAPPHIRE ROSE, David Eddings tackles a subject that an alarmingly high number of fantasy authors steer clear of. He tackles the subject of lossPPHIRE ROSE carries over all the best qualities of the first and second books of Eddings' Elenium, and of his Garion novels. His characters care for one another and effortlessly create an air of optimism that, as I wrote in my review of Elenium #2, exudes fun. Because adventures are fun.Adventures that see a group of heroes sally forth to challenge [...]

    26. I've finished my re-read of The Sapphire Rose and The Elenium and must say that it's every bit as good as I remembered it to be - maybe even more so now that I'm much older and can appreciate the arts more fully.Sparhawk has the Bhelliom. With it, he will restore his queen and thwart the best laid plans of the Primate Annias. But that's not all This novel is perfectly FILLED to the brim with content. In it, you'll:- learn of Queen Ehlana's grand plans for her champion, Sir Sparhawk;- watch as th [...]

    27. This was a great ending to this series, not because it was amazing from a literary sense, or the most intriguing finish ever, but because it was consistent. It carried on the best things about this series in a satisfying ending that both answered the key outstanding questions, and at the same time it set the table for another series.What were the best things? Here are couple points I really liked:--Sparkhawk, as a character, is a solid base to build around. While it would be a fair criticism to [...]

    28. Very minor spoilers. I don't know what to say of this book except that I didn't like it. Eddings sure does have a formula for his fantasy and uses every trope imaginable, but I found this series to be too derivative.OK I actually have a lot to say of this book.Firstly, the dialogue is often very forced and it reads like Eddings had an entire plot in mind and had to suffer through writing some trite conversation to fill in the gaps that nonetheless often remain glaringly deep. Interactions betwee [...]

    29. Empece a leer la Trilogia Elenium hace veinte años, cuando fue publicada en una colección de tapas azuladas; pero solo la completé ahora. En general, La Rosa de Zafiro es muy buena, mucho mejor que su novela anteprecedente, la cual me costó remotnar. Aqui las cosas se resuelven, de maneras mas o menos como se espera, con un tempo constante y eficaz y con un par de sorpresas y momentos dramáticos. A diferencia del anticlimatico final de la Beleriad, aqui tenemos un final predecible pero bien [...]
