Althalus, burglar, armed robber, is paid to steal a book by a sinister stranger named Ghend. Althalus sets off to the House at the End of the World where the book is kept. There, in the same room as the book Ghend described, he finds a talking cat. What he can't find when he turns around is the door by which he entered.

By the time he sets out again, Althalus can read. He's read the book and discovered that the evil god Daeva is trying to unmake the world. The cat, whom Althalus calls Emerald, is in fact the god's sister, and she needs Althalus to prevent Daeva returning them all to primordial chaos. Althalus will teach her what she needs to know, which is how to lie, cheat and steal.

Althalus is the first and foremost of a band of colourful helpers who will battle Daeva and his bizarre, deadly minions. The existence of the world hangs in the balance in this glorious epic fantasy.

The Redemption of Althalus
Yet another masterful story from one of the modern masters of science fantasy. This book drags you in right from the very start and keeps you reading. The only downside is that perhaps David and Leigh Eddings tried to compact too much into the one book. Essentially there were five battles in the book. Five people who had specific roles to play but because they tried to cram the whole story in to one book rather than splitting it into a series (like many of their others) it lacked in descriptive detail. Still, the story was extremely engaging. I recommend this book if you're a fan of science fantasy
