Book Description

7 Aug 1987 The Malloreon (TW) (Book 1)

Warned by the prophecy that a new and greater danger threatens the lands of the west, Garion, Belgarath and Polgara must begin another quest to save the lands from great evil.

Three years have passed since Garion's killing of the evil god Torak and his marriage to Ce'Nedra. He is now Overlord of the West, slowly learning how to cope with the duties of a king and to overcome the difficulties within his marriage.

When the Orb of Aldur warns Garion to 'Beware Zandramas!' the Voice of Prophecy reveals that somewhere in the unknown land of the East the Dark Prophecy still exists and that great new dangers threaten.

While Belgarath and Garion seek to uncover the nature of this threat, Garion's baby son is kidnapped. All evidence points to the loathsome Bear-cult, which has gained power once more, and Garion leads an army bent on its destruction. But there are even more sinister forces at work, and Garion and his followers must look towards the malign and mysterious evil of Zandramas. Their quest must begin again.

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
Format:Paperback
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read 29 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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!
