I'm having some computer problems so I'm getting plenty of time to handwrite my next few reviews - and read a lot of books! As I am hurtling through the David Eddings' books, I feel I better pick up the pace reviewing the books! My fourth review in the Belgariad five book series focuses on the fourth book, called Castle of Wizardry. As always, I'm going to try to avoid any spoilers, but Castle of Wizardry is quite deep in the story, so I apologise in advance if I'm a little brief or if you feel I give too much away. The books start is quite action-packed due to the climactic events at the end of Magician's Gambit; our hero Garion has taken charge of the group ... Read the complete review

The Castle of Wizardry is the fourth novel in David eddings Belgariad series. Author David Eddings was an American fantasy author who wrote two epic fantasy five novel series called The Belgaraid and The Mallorean. These two novels are amongst the best post Tolkien novels in the genre; he also wrote two series on a knight called Sparhawk in which there are many similarities with characters in the Belgariad and the Mallorean. He also wrote a few stand alone novels and has just finished another 5 part series called the Elder Gods. His later novels came in for criticism for the similarity to his previous novels, his character development rather ... Read the complete review

Castle Of Wizardry is the forth book in the epic fantasy series 'The Belgariad' by the American fantasy author David Eddings. This book follows on from the third book in the series 'Magician's Gambit'. By this point in the series David Eddings had his readers hooked and they could not wait to get their hands on this one and continue the story, because of that this was a massive seller for Eddings. The book was released in 1984 and since then has always been a popular seller as many people have fallen in love with the world that Eddings created. This book again follows the story of Garion. This time however he has had to do some serious growing up. ... Read the complete review

Castle of wizardry is part of a 5 book series written by author David eddings.I have had mixed feelings about the series so far it feels like sometimes like reading something as long as lord of the rings.Don't get me wrong there are some great characters like silk a Drasnian merchant who is so good at his job he could he could probably sell ice to polar bears.He also adapts multiple personalities so he can evade be arrested or killed because he is some known for cheating people. story The series follows a young boy by the name Garion who is sent with his uncle and aunt Pogara the sorceress and belgareth a sorcerer to for fill a prophecy. It all ... Read the complete review

Eddings throws you, yet again, in a fantasy world where the characters will become as well known to you as life-like friends and the mystical aspects of this book don't seem cartoonish or petty. The beauty of Eddings works is they're all taken from a realistic start without any fantasy and incorporates it slowly and very believably as well. This book, as well as his other Malloreon series (which is a continuance of the Belgariad) MUST be read. ... Read the complete review
