Ooh, I know, it’s every book ever written by David Eddings! The book covers were probably different colours. Same damn plot every time. I admit I stopped reading after the third time (fool me twice, shame on me), so it’s not impossible that he wrote a different story at some point in the intervening decades, but I have strong doubts.
(I admit I may be veering off-topic… and it also turns out that he’s dead, so now I feel slightly awkward about this – but it’s still true, darn it.)
