At one point in my life I loved the writing of David Eddings. He wrote light, fun fantasy with engaging characters.

Either my tastes have *really* changed, or his writing has really gone downhill. His wife, Leigh, is given co-author credit for this book. Not having read anything of hers in the past, I'm unwilling to speculate on whether there is any correlation there. It's mint condition, so I must not have actually thrown it across the room when I finished... I don't suppose I'm selling this book to well, am I? I do know I read it when I was in the midst of a holiday depression a number of years ago, so there is a good chance that it is much better than I remember. :-)

As the first stand-alone one-volume epic fantasy by the popular Eddings team (whose series include The Belgariad; The Malloreon and The Elenium), this hefty saga about Good trouncing Evil plumps an engaging young reprobate hero into the arms of aDliterallyDdivine feline heroine. A professional thief and occasional murderer, Althalus accepts a commission to steal a supernatural tome known as the Book. When he arrives at the mysterious House at the End of the World, a lissome black cat with emerald eyes turns out to be the fertility goddess Dweia. Together they enlist a Mission Improbable team to out-sorcel the assorted villains marshaled by the sorcerer Ghend, who is bent on converting this medieval-like world from the worship of Dweia's good god-brother, Deiwos, to awful servitude under their wicked sibling Daeva.

not up to the usual 5 star rating of Eddings, but still a lot better than other books I have read.
