More About the Author

David Eddings (1931-2009) published his first novel, High Hunt, in 1973, before turning to the field of fantasy with the Belgariad, soon followed by the Malloreon. Born in Spokane, Washington, and raised in the Puget Sound area north of Seattle, he received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Reed College in Portland, Oregon, in 1954, and a master of arts degree from the University of Washington in 1961. He served in the US Army, worked as a buyer for the Boeing Company, and was both a grocery clerk and a college English teacher. He lived in Nevada until his death, at the age of 77.

5.0 out of 5 stars Family reunion 12 Oct 2000
By A Customer
After I read "The Belgariad", I longed for more about Garion, Polgara, Silk and the rest of the gang and I must say my wishes were more than granted in "The Malloreon". Garion and Ce'Nedra turned out to be even nicer as adults than as adolescents and the plot is once again very gripping. You really know the characters now and reading "Guardians of the West" was like a family reunion. I loved all those nice character scenes in it and it was very exciting, as well. I read the other four books of "The Malloreon" in very short time and I was very sorry to have finished them. When you really want to finish a story yet feel sorry when you've finished it, you know it's good. And when it comes to that, Eddings is the best!

Read all of these when they were first published and had not read them for years (despite still owning the hard copies). Downloaded them for holiday reading when I first bought my kindle, together with Polgara, Belgarath & the Rivan Codex which I had not read before. Still fantastic reading!
