Review

'I wished Polgara the Sorceress was longer . . . the characters are vivid and genuinely likeable, and there's an easy lilt to the prose which makes reading it pure pleasure. It's a wonderful book' SFX

‘My ideal summer read… Having enjoyed the entire ten-book serial, I was delighted to be able to read this latest addition as it not only provides fantastic escapism in itself, but, being a prequel, will make my re-reading of the other books all the more fascinating.’
The Irish Times

‘All the verve and pace we’ve come to expect.’
The Dark Side

‘Offers an absorbing storyline and some memorable characters as, once again, the authors touch all the right fantasy bases, with warring gods, political intrigues, supernatural creatures and appealingly human magicians involved in a titanic war over the course of seven millennia. Eddings fans will no doubt snatch this novel off the shelves while readers new to the authors’ world won’t find a more appropriate place to begin exploring it.’
Publishers Weekly

‘There’s no denying the Eddingses’ offerings do entertain. This novel is for fantasy fans fed up with more fusty fare, or for anyone who likes mischief and merriment.’
West Australian

Format:Paperback
"Polgara the sorceress" is a book that can be liked by everybody that enjoys reading an engaging fantasy book, but will only be fully appreciated by those who have already read "The Belgariad", "The Malloreon" and "Belgarath the sorcerer" (yes, in that order).
The reason for that emphatic statement is simple: this book is the autobiography of Polgara, one of the main characters in those books. As such, "Polgara the sorceress" contains spoilers that could dim your enjoyment of the previously mentioned books. And believe me, "The Belgariad", "The Malloreon" and "Belgarath the sorcerer" are so wonderful that they fully deserve all the time that you need to read them first :)
"The Belgariad" and "The Malloreon" tell the story of a group of friends in a dangerous and magical quest, while "Belgarath the sorcerer" recounts the same story from the point of view of one of the main characters, who has the benefit of being almost immortal, thus having a thoroughly different perspective regarding the events that preceded that quest and everybody involved in it.
"Polgara the sorceress" is nothing less than a direct consequence of "Belgarath the sorcerer". Polgara is Belgarath's daughter, a sorceress and the guardian of the Rivan line. She didn't exactly agree with her father's version of what happened, and told her friends so. Despite that, Polgara wouldn't have gone so far as to write her own autobiography is Ce'Nedra (spurred by curiosity) hadn't plotted for her to do so.
Truth to be told, I specially enjoyed Polgara's take on what happened, and how she explained many things that Belgarath hadn't considered important.

5.0 out of 5 stars Polgara the Sorceress 2 Aug 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I read the Belgariad and the Mallorean a long time ago and found them to be fantastic, I couldn't put them down. In fact I nearly got fired through reading one of them when I was supposed to be working!
But at the time this book didn't interest me enough to buy it, but I recently have and have found it to be just as good as the series, I sometimes find that companion novels are just a rehash of the original story but this insight into Polgaras upbringing was I thought, far from boring. This book helps you to understand her character and the occasional digs and comments to her father and the other characters that feature in the series made me chuckle.
I suppose I'm biased as Polgara is one of my all time favourite characters but I think anyone who likes the fantasy genre would find this book as fascinating as I did, in fact it's made me pick up the Belgariad and start all over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, a totally engaging read 12 Feb 2003
By iz
Format:Paperback
Polgara the sorceress was to be frank one of the best books I have read for a very long time. The style of the writing is easy to read and understand, but still grips the reader much better than many "action-packed" books with more frenzied and careless writing, and the storyling catches the imagination perfectly. The story, told in Polgara's own words, is in places funny and in places sad, but there are no unlikely swings in mood or pace which would spoil the story, and it is all told with the same perspective and imposing presence anyone who has read the original series will connect with the matriarchal sorceress. It answers many irritating questions from the original ten books, and gives the 'other side' of Belgarath the sorceror's tale in the other accompanying book.
As relaxing, no-effort reading matter I would definately give this book top marks, and it is easy to pick up and pout down without losing the plot. It is a several-layered story, with layers of simple storytelling over a deeper, more thoughtful ideal, and is suitable for any type of reader accordingly.
The only problem I would mention about this book is that it might spoil some of the earlier books if it is the first you read, because since it answers all the questions the earlier books are not likely to make such an impact on the reader. But it would also be possible to read it first, if you like to not have loose ends in stories, and some people may even prefer it that way. All in all, I heartily recommend this book and its companion to anyone interested!

I have to say, although it may just be a male preference, I far more enjoyed reading Belgarath's version of events. However there was no way that I was going to read the 'Belgariad', 'Malorien' and 'Belgarath the Sorcerer' without bringing them to a conclusion; thet's what this book does and does it well. So if your thinking about reading this one then you've most likely read the others. Which means threre's probably nothing that can hold you back from completing an excellent fantasy epic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely fantastic, a must for any Eddings fan 29 Dec 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Once again a triumph from the Eddings camp(although I have to admit that I am slightly biased!). You grow up with Polgara, laugh with her and weep with her and share all the troubles, triumphs and losses as she and her family steer their world along the path of destiny. At last, all the events that are just tantalisingly mentioned in passing in 'The Belgariad' and 'The Mallorean' are recounted in glorious detail, from the destruction of Vo Wacune to the guarding of the Rivan line and ultimately, the birth of the Godslayer. I can guarantee that once you pick up Polgara the Sorceress, you won't put it down until you have finished it, I know I didn't. My only criticism is that, eventually, this particular series must come to an end as all the stories will have been told.
