Having gone through a recent re-read of Eddings’ books in this particular universe, I find them to be both more enjoyable on an older adult level, while at the same time raising an eyebrow at certain repetitive phrases and the very obvious opinions that Eddings and his wife seem to have about gender roles and female archetypes.

Jan 09, Adam Knight rated it it was ok. Nov 17, Sean Hendricks rated it did not like it Shelves: Polgara the Sorceress 1 8 Feb 22, I do not enjoy her, and her mother’s, rampant misandry. Nov 26, Lacey rated it it was ok Shelves: That said, the usual standard rules concerning reading any Eddings work applies, perhaps even moreso because this book admittedly is just a retread of events that have already been written about, just from another character’s POV.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. We find out what it dabid like for Polgara to raise so many little boys, to keep them hidden and take care of them as she waited for the Godslayer to be born.

Polgara the Sorceress (novel)

He eventually died in the defense of Vo Wacune. Although generally viewed as less powerful than her illustrious father partly because so much of what she did was of necessity kept secretPolgara vavid able to do a number of things that Belgarath could not, due in part to the secret tutelage of her mother. But other than that the book was excellent. When Belgarath returned to take care of his daughters, Beldaran was quick to forgive him, but Polgara often fled to the Tree at the center of the Vale of Aldur, where she befriended and learned to speak to birds.


Fills in all the blank spots. And there she starts on the path toward her destiny as Duchess of Erat, shepherdess of the cause of good, adversary of Torak the One-Eyed Dragon God, and davir of the world’s last, best hope: Following Torak’s defeat at Vo Mimbre, Polgara returned to caring for the descendants of Riva, eventually raising Garion.

Eventually, it was revealed that one of the twins was to wed Riva Iron-Gripthe king of a newly formed subdivision of the Alorn kingdom of Aloria. She learned to shift into the form of an owl, a shape she learned from her mother. Polgara the Sorceress begins with Ce’Nedra entreating Polgara to write a book about her life, filling in the gaps left by her father’s story, Belgarath the Sorcerer. The strong point of this series was the adventure, not the characterization nor the witty dialogue which Eddings polgarra to imagine he was writing so I see no need to read this unless you are a Belgariad completist.

It’s been a while since I read the final, 12th book in the Belgariad by David and Leigh Eddings and it was a little emotional when putting down the book for the last time just now. This was also because, as Belgarath believed his wife dead, Belgarath had left for years, wandering from vice to vice in poor mental condition. Ten books of characterization completely undercut in this explosion of sexist twaddle.

I really felt myself drawn into this story and although it dragged ever so slightly a couple of times, it was never for long. A relatively young Polgara spent many years in the Arendish duchy of Vo Wacune. It tells of her relationship with her mother and her twin sister, the animosity she feels towards her father and her ongoing relationship with him, the way she finally loses Beldaran multiple times, in several waysand the way she learns about her gift and how to use it.

The Belgariad Series and the Mallorean Series are hands down one of the best science fiction series ever written. Polgara the Sorceress begins with Ce’Nedra entreating Polgara to write a book about her life, filling in the gaps left by edfings father’s story, Belgarath the Sorcerer.

The place to start is with the first volume of the Belgariad, Pawn of Prophecy which was published first. Belgariad PrequelsBelgariad Universe 2. Belgarath with Beldaran’s help eventually negotiated an uneasy peace, and Polgara began her training under him. Ordained to make peace and make war, to gain love and lose love, Favid lives out her family’s rich prophecy in the ceaseless struggle between the Light and the Dark.

Myself, I would be pleased sorveress see the Eddings abandon the arch tone that they take in the whole series, and which is particularly annoying in the prequels. A relatively young Polgara spent many years in the Arendish duchy of Vo Wacune, where she mitigated the Arendish civil wars.

Quite frankly, you are not sorecress to get anything from this book that Eddings has not already told countless times in the earlier books of the Belgarion world. The story ends there, just before The Belgariad begins. One lock of her hair turned silver, at his touch, marking her forever as a sorceress. A magnificent epic fantasy novel that is an absorbing read, which combines a complex plot with remarkable imagination. There is naturally some overlap as Belgarath has been alive through the whole of his daughter’s lifebut they concentrate on different aspects of the history of the Eddings’ world.
