An amazing fantasy series for all ages.,
This review is from: The Belgariad (Vol 1): Volume One: Pawn of Prophecy, Queen of Sorcery, Magician's Gambit (Paperback)The Belgariad omnibus edition consists of the first three novels in Eddings's first and maybe best Fantasy series, Pawn Of Prophecy, Queen Of Sorcery and Magician's Gambit. This series of books is great and is a good start to any Fantasy fans collection whether you're nine years old or a Fantasy veteran like myself. Eddings writing is of good quality although if you're expecting an Erikson or Martin you'll be disappointed, he writes his characters and and there environments with a vivid imagination that allows you a brief glimpse into this great world.
The story starts in a small farm with a young boy called Garion who unbeknown to him holds the fate of the world in his hands. Garion and his Aunt Poll with several friends must find a way to get the Orb of Aldur back from the thief and priest of the evil God Torak. Together they will face war, Assassination and dark magic, the whole world awaits the outcome of a fight between good and evil.
