Review

“Fabulous . . . Eddings has a marvelous storyteller style . . . exceedingly well portrayed and complex people. . . . More! More! More!”
–ANNE MCCAFFREY

From the Inside Flap

David Eddings' acclaimed series, "The Belgariad, reaches its stunning conclusion in these final two gripping novels. Continue on this magnificent journey and be entranced by a saga of strange lands and peoples, of prophecy and strife set against the background of a seven-thousand-year war of men, Kings, and Gods.
The quest may be nearing its end, but the danger continues. After discovering a shocking secret about himself he never could have imagined--all in pursuit of the legendary Orb--Garion and his fellow adventurers must escape a crumbling enemy fortress and flee across a vast desert filled with ruthless soldiers whose only aim is to destroy them. But even when the quest is complete, Garion's destiny is far from fulfilled. For the evil God Torak is about to awaken and seek dominion. Somehow, Garion has to face the God, to kill or be killed. On the outcome of this dread duel rests the future of the world. But how can one man destroy an immortal God?

I read The Belgariad over 10 years ago and has just finished reading the series the second time. I find myself enjoying it even more. The story maybe too familiar, good versus evil with a happy ending but I have a weakness for this kind of story. The strength of the series is the development of the wonderful characters, the smooth plot and of course the dry humour. The Belgariad is simply a timeless fantasy to be treasured.

This series started it all for me. It was the first fantasy series I ever read, and I have to say, it's as good a read now, some 15 years later, as it was the first time I picked it up. Hard to believe it's been 20 years in print!!
I can't recommend this series (as well as the Malloreon, to follow) enough. Truly, IMHO it ranks second ONLY to the original Dragonlance Chronicles.

The Belgarad is one of the, if not the, best work of fantasy out there today. I highly recomend it if you like High Fantasy. There are smiles and laughts around every page.

Why is 'volume 2' the only part of the series available on Kindle? What about part one and what about the sequel, 'the Mallorean'? We fans need to make sure they become available-on the regular amazon website there is an icon on the product page of every book that is not available on kindle: 'would you like to read this on Kindle?' Please visit Eddings' books and click on this link to show them how eager we are to read these books on our kindles!

Format: Paperback
The Belgariad is Eddings' first and best fantasy series. First published in the mid-1980s, the Belgariad differed from other fantasy fiction because: (1) it was not based on the elf-dwarf-human creature structure like Lord of the Rings and its various copycats (Terry Brooks, Weis/Hickman, Dennis McKeirnan, etc.); (2) it had mature and defined political systems (including a country that popularly elected its king), international relations and ethnic patterns, unlike even the more mature fantasy offerings of Donaldson (Thomas Covenant) and LeGuin (Earthsea); (3) it had a unique formulation of magic -- the will and the word; and (4) it inverted the purpose of the fantasy quest -- the EVIL ONE sleeps and the heroes seek to prevent his awakening BEFORE he begins his attempt to take over the world (again).

Eddings narrative is sly and occasionally slick -- the characters balance seriousness with humor and the dialogue is often very funny. His world is believable because the political and religious interactions make sense. The best feature of the Belgariad is its relative tonal change -- from reflecting the innocent wide-eyed view of young Garion (the hero, farmboy, of course) in Pawn of Prophecy, the next two books become darker and more serious as Garion begins to realize who he is and what is at stake, and he comes to grips with who his "Aunt Pol" and his "Grandfather" really are.

By the time book four, Castle of Wizardry, starts the hero is acting and thinking proactively instead of merely reacting to events or bobbing along with the tide (like in Queen of Sorcery, volume 2). He's grown independent and a good deal wiser. By the end of Book 5, his emotional range includes earned sympathy for his enemy -- a rare trait in the standard fantasy fare.

The story line is 5 star but I bought this collected edition to replace two separate older books, and I am really disappointed by the general flimsiness of the binding and the thinness of the paper. Since I bought it for the story I chose to keep it, especially as I usually only reread this one annually - but if the book is going to see hard use, forget it. Buy the separate novels or buy a hardcover collection.

I can't say enough nice things about David and Leigh Eddings works and the Belgariad (and it's sequel The Mallorean) is a massive achievement. I read these books to my boys as youngsters and (right up there with CS Lewis and Tolkien, and later we all went thru Rowling but by then individually), it spurred them all on to become avid readers themselves, (as well as good students!)

Eddings work is original and deeply detailed, richly and diversely peopled and yet refreshingly funny, does not take itself so seriously, overall a great read and re-read!

These I bought to take over to read to my small nephew now that my own boys are grown and gone I miss the charm of nightly reading time! They were my first choice!

One of my youngest boy's first words was the 3 syllable name of the primary heroine in these stories! :-D

The story (beginning in Vol 1) is your classic good vs. evil. For those who have read the Belgaraid Vol 1. this is a must have. For those that are reading the review, but have not read Vol 1. (or the three books that it comprises) then stop, find it, and buy them both!
Why? Learn how a young immature boy, and a young spoiled girl grow up "the hard way" with conflicts, battles, and hard lessons learned. They grow up fast, and become very memorable characters. Eddings does an amazing job fleshing out the characters in the Novel. Everyone has a personality, everyone has a reason to be there. Even the story itself seems to speak to you as if it is a stand-alone character.
If you like fantasy novels like The Lord of the Rings (JRR), Icewind Dale (Salvatore), The Magician (Feist), etc. then you'll love these books.
