From the Back Cover
A brutal serial killer stalks the Seattle nights. Regina Greenleaf was one of the victims. Her beautiful twin sister, Renata is deeply traumatised.
Renata barely knows she's alive. She talks only rarely, and then always in twin-speak, the special language she and Regina made up long before they'd learned to speak English.
When there had been two of them, they used to swap names. At school, they'd swapped the ribbons in their hair that were the only way of telling them apart. They were so close to each other, they might as well have been one person.
Mark, a college lecturer in English, is Renata's friend and her post-trauma protector. He's the only person Renata recognises and will talk to. She agrees to attend his classes, and with the help of Mark's room-mates Renata seems to be coming to terms with her loss.
But the number of murders in Seattle rises, and Mark has some dreadful suspicions. If he says anything, it's guaranteed to send Renata back to the hospital. But if he doesn't, there may be blood on his conscience…
Part murder mystery, ghost story and psychological thriller, 'Regina's Song' masterfully fuses together elements that elicit our deepest, darkest fears…
In 'Regina's Song', David and Leigh Eddings have written a tense, chilling story of a nightmare coming true.
"'Make them stop', she pleaded. 'The wolves are howling again. Please make them stop'. Then she suddenly started whispering, her lips very close to my ear – and she wasn't whispering in any language I could understand."
About the Author
David Eddings was born in Washington State in 1931 and grew up near Seattle. He graduated from the University of Washington and went on to serve in the US Army. Subsequently, he worked as a buyer for the Boeing Aircraft Company and taught college-level English. His career as a fantasy writer, with his wife Leigh, has been spectacular.

I read the belgariad books years ago, and would love to reread them. Hope there are plans to bring them out on kindle.
Anyways that doesn't even begin to describe a thoroughly engaging story. The only problem I really have with it was the Catholic priest was Irish, literally. Come on, that could have been a little more original, but then again, there are reasons for stereotypes.
Another aspect of this book that is of note, was that I was left with a lot of questions at the end of the story.
I don't think the author's intentions were to leave you hanging. I believe what "really" happened is left to your own interpretation to make you think.
There are going to be people who don't like this book because of that. Much like those people who don't like movies that actually have a point.
I also got the feeling that Mrs. Eddings had a stronger influence on this book than on any other previously except of course, Polgara the Sorceress.
If you are a fan of the Eddings' previous work, you will not be disappointed.
If you are a new fan I recommend starting with the Belgariad or the Elenium, but this is a fine story, and is as good as anything they have written previously.
I enthusiastically look forward to reading anything else they put out.
I take my hat off and bow in their general direction once again.
