‘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.’
‘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.’
From the Back Cover
The queen of truth, love, rage and destiny reveals all.
'Polgara the Sorceress' is the crowning achievement of the great fantasy epic which began with The Belgariad and continued with The Malloreon. Once again David and Leigh Eddings display the epic imagination, humour and storytelling power which have made this series the most popular fantasy of modern times. It is a story of wizardry and politics, doom and evil, love and magic. Above all, it is the story of Polgara, a beautiful woman whose constancy and inner power have been the foundation of all the luck and love that have saved the world. At last, the full truth of The Belgariad is revealed.
"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”
"All the verve and pace we've come to expect"
THE DARK SIDE
"Nobody writes modern fantasy like Eddings or as well… Eddings is at the top with the very best"
