YMMV: The Redemption of Althalus

  • Anticlimax Boss: Yakhag, who's built up as a total monster, and killed in less than ten minutes.
  • Fantasy Counterpart Culture: Downplayed compared to David Eddings' other works, but it's there: Treborea is Italy, Wekti is Wales and Arum is Scotland.
  • Genius Bonus: Appropriately enough, the Old Tongue is (translated as?) Proto-Indo-European, the ur-ancestor of modern European languages.
