There’s something I don’t fully understand. You’ve written a hugely successful series of fantasy books. (Well, you’ve actually written four, but let’s not worry about the other three right now). You’ve written a prequel to one of these series. That’s fine with me, so far, even if the prequel was a little limiting. The bit I don’t get is this – why do you need a second prequel? The “show me the money” bit from “Jerry Maguire” is running through my head for some reason. Buying this book is a little like putting “go faster” stripes on a 1.0 litre Metro City. Sure, it ...

Together with 'Belgarath the Sorcerer', this novel forms the prequel to ten novels known collectively as the Belgariad and the Malloreon. Right there, you can see an ambitious undertaking - twelve novels forming one giant series. Well, not to worry. David Eddings carries a familiar theme throughout all his novels (or should we say his wife's novels, as he's lately taken to crediting her as a co-author) so once you've read one, you've read them all. The eternal Belgarion/Sparhawk/Athalus central character is nearly always present to plague readers with familiar overwraught plot holes. Fortunately, 'Polgara the Sorceress' sees the emphasis ..

I was a huge fan of David Eddings' traditional swords-and-sorcery Belgariad series, and while its follow-up, the Mallorean, didn't quite live up to expectations, I was still keen to read more set in this universe. Polgara happened to be one of my favourite characters, so when I saw her 'autobiography' going cheap in a second-hand shop, I couldn't resist it. The plot is immensely complicated, as it covers around 5000 years, and rather than having a central story, it instead tells the life of Polgara, the sorceress, so has several different disconnected strands. A lot of the main points will already be familiar to those who have read the rest of Eddings' work. ... Read the complete review

Polgara, Daughter of Belgarath. Sorceress, dutchess, Beauty and downright furious. To explain, let me introduce the story - just the beginning. Belgarath, Polgara's father, was forced, more or less, to write, basically, a history of the world. Or, in other words, his lifes story. And, to quote Polgara, he's "an expert in starting a job and getting somebody else to finish it for him!". Belgarath has left his story full of holes - and questions about what Polgara was doing from time to time, which basically forces Ce'Nedra to come and demand the rest of the story. So, from before her birth, through her early years, the marriage of her sister ... Read the complete review

This is almost certainly the last entry in the Belgariad and Mallorean series, and tells the story of Polgara, from before her birth, until just before the start of the Belgariad. You might think this is familiar territory, already covered in Belgarath the Sorcerer, but there is actually a lot in here that we haven't seen before. There are two areas that are almost entirely new here. The first is something of a side issue as far as the main plot is concerned, and tells of Polgara's ultimatly futile attempts to end the Arendish civil wars by helping the Wacite Arends, the most civilised of the Arends. While this has little impact on the overall ... Read the complete review
