A must for all Haggard fans, 'Eric Brighteyes' is strongly recommended to anyone who enjoys a great tale of heroic endeavour. Perhaps the fastest-paced of all Haggard's many novels, it races from one highspot to another with vivid scene-setting.

A worthy sequel, and one that all admirers of Haggard's original story should enjoy reading. The novel contains many exciting scenes, including a great avalanche, the pursuit of the death hounds, Ayesha's reincarnation, and the climactic battle.
