Polgara the Sorceress,
By A Customer
This review is from: Polgara the Sorceress (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.
