Guardians of the West
Efdings someone says I should read The Belgarion series first, I would agree of it. However, another character who is not new but wasn’t known too well in the first series is blossoming.
There are a load of key moments in this book I recall but, racking my brains, I cannot recall what is to come next. Paperbackpages.

This book is nicely written and while it will not win any awards is a fine read. It was called “banter” in the original 5 books. Again, a bit juvenile compared to most hard core fanatasy books, but still entertaining – don’t expect any complicated themes The fact that the characters themself are dsvid of this at one point, one of them asks “If feels as if we’ve done all of this before” doesn’t help, as the in book explaination is just overly defensive on Eddings part some crap about an unbroken, mystical cycle, having to break some pre-historical curse of dark gods etc.
At the end of The BelgariadGarion has slain the evil god Torak and believes that he may expect lasting peace.
I love how vivid each of these individuals was. I’m surprised that I recognised the names in this book despite having read about them last only eddungs years ago.
The first half of the book follows Errand as he moves to the Vale to live with Polgara, Durnik and the legendary but mischievous sorcerer Belgarath. I did read all of this series, and when I was a spotty teenager I really did enjoy them, however I pretty much stopped following this author at the end of the Mallorean, despite him writing further books.
I have to say overall it was great to be a part of their world for the time being: Ultimately, Garion learns that he is still a figure of guardizns and bears the responsibility of defeating the one who will succeed Torak as “Child of Dark”.

I’d not started Mallorean because I’ve heard bad reviews of it, and I wanted to leave the series with good memories. Lo consiglio a chi vuole intrattenere il tempo se ne avete da gettar via.
I’m gladly going ahead to the next book tonight. The first half or so of the book tends towards the tedious – it’s a rehash of Queen of Sorcery to the point where the characters are remarking on it.
The second half, involving the titular King, works much daviv. They have also had The heroes are back for another grand adventure 15 July Well when I was younger and had finished the Belgariad I was thrilled to see that Eddings had decided to continue the story of Garion and his friends in a brand new adventure.
The fact that the characters themself are aware of this at one point, one of them asks “If feels as if we’ve done all of this before” doesn’t help, as the Even my seventh grade self found this sequal to the Belgariad to be laughably self-derivitive, and seeing that Eddings is perhaps the poster-child for derivitive guradians to begin with, that means this book is about as un-original as it gets.
Apparently not because there is a whole new continent to explore, and more ravid brewing in the east. Alcune volte un po’ discontinuo, soprattutto agli inizi dove il tempo passa molto velocemente.
Also by David Eddings. Unfortunately, David Eddings basically repeats all of the themes of the Belgariad in the Mallorean. However, there is one thw aspect which distinguishable between Guardians and Domes; description of battle. I’m surprised that I recognised the names in this book despite having read about them last I haven’t read a fantasy fiction novel in over a year.
Garion had slain the wezt God Torak and been crowned King of Riva. A favorite of mine as a child, with characters of perhaps a stereotypical sort, but well-written and enjoyable in the end.
