The nature of how he wrote the relationship between Sparhawk and Ehlana takes on an extra creepy vibe when I learned Eddings' history. It was bad enough with a 40ish year old guy going back and forth with a teenager girl of "I raised this little girl" to "this little tart keeps seducing me and I can't help but have sex with her. And it was really good." back to "I raised this little girl", rinse and repeat.Ugh. Is it bad enough to warrant the googling, or fairly minor but disappointing?
I mean the homophobia and other problematic elements of the Elenium already disappointed me when I went back and read it again a couple years ago…
