She soars above a world of warriors, kings, and priests. The daughter of Belgarath and the shape-shifter Poledra, she has fought wars, plotted palace coups, and worked her powerful magic for three thousand years. Now, Polgara looks back at her magnificent life, in this fitting crown jewel to the saga that is the Eddings’ Belgariad and Mallorean cycles. Her hair streaked wh She soars above a world of warriors, kings, and priests.

Her hair streaked white by her father’s first touch, her mind guided by a mother she will not see again for centuries, Polgara begins life in her Uncle Beldin’s tower, and in the prehistorical, magical Tree that stands in the middle polgwra the Vale. There, she first learns the reaches of her powers. There she assumes the bird shapes that will serve her on her adventures. And there she starts on the path toward her destiny as Duchess of Erat, shepherdess of the cause of good, adversary of Eavid the One-Eyed Dragon God, and guardian of the world’s last, best hope: Here is the legendary life story of a woman of wit, passion, and complex emotions, a woman born of two majestic parents who could not have been more unlike one another.

Ordained to make peace and make war, to gain love and lose love, Polgara lives out her family’s rich prophecy in the ceaseless struggle between the Light and the Dark. Polgara is the epic culmination of a magnificent saga, and a fitting farewell to a world which, once experienced, will never be forgotten. Paperbackpages. Belgariad PrequelsBelgariad Universe 2.

Ten books of characterization completely undercut in this explosion of sexist twaddle. Depressingly, I think it’s a better book in a lot of ways than Belgarath the Sorcerer – the material is largely new and entertaining and, with the exception of the almost word-for-word repeat of the Vo Mimbre section, is paced fairly well.

But it’s got two big problems that I can’t edeings. This is the Eddings’ chance to expound at appalling length their various opinions about the ha Oh, Polgara. This is the Eddings’ chance to expound at appalling length their various opinions about the hard-wired differences between men and women, leading women to be conniving, emotional, good in the kitchen and with children, completely irrational in love, and made for making babies.

Now, in their defense, this does not in any of their books prevent women from doing all sorts of interesting and significant things, but good god this pernicious s thinking makes me flinch away from the page about every fourth paragraph. This would have been the perfect opportunity to really develop Polgara’s poltara voice – she’s something of a restrained and eddingw figure throughout the books-with-plots, and her perspective should be unique. Instead, she sounds exactly like Belgarath throughout.

Her audience-directed asides are even more irritating, if possible, but that’s about the only distinguishing factor – except, of course, the frequent remarks about the differences between men and women. Not a book I would recommend to anyone, really. The amusing Arendish political escapades do not make up for the serious commitment to eyerolling required.

Would have been the perfect ending to the series had he just not opened up the speculations about who Wolf really is at the end, but I guess nothings perfect.

Polgara the Sorceress

Especially since there ain’t no more Garion stories coming to clear that up. That upset me quite a bit. But other than that the book was excellent. When I first started reading the Belgariad I thought Polgara was extremely dry and I couldn’t understand everyone’s An amazing companion to Belgarath the Sorcerer. When I first started reading the Belgariad I thought Polgara was extremely dry and I couldn’t understand everyone’s affection for her, she just didn’t seem like the mothering type of figure to me that they were portraying her as.

Of course, by the end of th Belgariad I’d come around, but THIS book really explains so much more about Polgara and why she is the way she is, I really fell in love with it. May 30, Charles rated it it was ok Shelves: Hey, remember all the cool stuff? It turns out the wolf did it all.

Also, have you ever noticed that men and women are different? A magnificent epic fantasy novel that is an absorbing read, which combines a complex plot with remarkable imagination. David and Leigh Eddings have triumphed again with this spectacular novel, to add to your collection of original fantasy works by masterful writers.

No one can compare within modern fantasy writing like Eddings, whose distinctive style and unique flair is second to none and which is at the top with all the greatest writers of this genre. This is the story of the Queen of truth, love, rage and destiny and which within the first few pages will take you on the most astonishing fantastical journey into the vale of Aldur. Polgara is not only a Sorceress but who chose a very different life for herself than the expected one, as she chose love for Durnik over money and material luxury.

Evil is rising once more from the city of endless night and as the truth is disclosed the story of Wizardry and politics, doom and evil, love and magic are brought into the light.

But as darkness falls so will too the luck and love that Polgara possess which have up until now saved the world… This has to be the crowning achievement of the greatest fantasy epic ever, where once again David and Leigh display the scope of imagination, humor and sheer depth of storytelling power which has made this series so popular for fantasy lovers in modern times.

This is a great addition to the story told with Polgara’s usual dry wit, cutting sarcasm and superb observations. Again it has the feel of fireside story telling, although since it is Pol it should be more of stove side pllgara telling given her love of cooking and her need to feed people I swear sh Dagid is a great addition to the story told with Polgara’s usual dry wit, cutting sarcasm and superb observations.

Again it has the feel of fireside story telling, although since it is Pol it should be more of stove side story telling given her love of cooking and her need to feed people I swear she has some Welsh blood in her!

As with Belgarath, there is plenty of action as well as the more human aspects of the story to keep things ticking over and plenty eddinge the behind the sddings stuff that the main series has missed.

Jan 27, Lurple rated it it was ok. As a teenager I was pretty fond of David Edding’s books, but daviid don’t hold up well after time. Eddings has a way of writing the same story sometimes with different names over and over, and this book is no real exception. Mar 14, Simon Mcleish rated it liked it. Originally published on my blog here oolgara September Polgara the Sorceress is the second prequel to the Belgariad and Malloreon series.


The different author attribution of this and Belgarath the Sorcerer apparently reflects not a change in how David Eddings’ books are written, but is more an overdue acknowledgement. The story of the world eddibgs Belgarath and his family now occupies twelve books, though the two prequels match in length any two of the others.

The first prequel tells a first person n Originally published on my blog here in September The first prequel tells a first person narrative of the life of Belgarath the Sorcerer’the Eternal Man’; this second one is the same, courtesy of his daughter, Polgara.

Les Années d’Enfance

There is naturally some overlap as Belgarath has been alive through the whole of his daughter’s lifebut they concentrate on different aspects of the history of the Eddings’ world.

Even though they come first chronologically, the prequels would not be a very interesting read before the remainder of the series. The place to start is with the first volume of the Belgariad, Poolgara of Prophecy which was published first. If you enjoy that series and the Malloreon, pklgara come back to the two prequels.

Their scene-setting introductions follow on after the end of the main series.

advid Myself, I would be pleased to see the Plogara abandon the arch tone that they take in the whole series, and which is particularly annoying in the prequels. There is a distinct sentimental vein to David Eddings – I once read an interview in which he referred to Tolkien J. His contemporary novels, High Hunt and The Losersare much better written because in them he assumes a rather different style which works well. To sum up, Polgara the Sorceress is probably for fans only.

Jul 23, Jade Kerrion rated it it was amazing. By the last book in the series, Eddings’s easy style and insider jokes settles on readers like a comfortable and worn cloak. The characters welcome you “Polgara the Sorceress” wraps up David Eddings’s high fantasy series that started with the 5 books of the Belgariad, continued through the 5 books of the Mallorean, and “Belgarath the Sorceror.

The characters welcome you like old friends,because by now, they really are like old friends. Stereotypes and archetypes abound, and there are few surprises in the novel. That said, “Polgara the Sorceress” is a fundamental read for any Eddings fan, especially for those who crave a sense of completion.

The novel rounds out Belgarath’s story and adds depth and nuance to major historical events. It is a fantastic end to the series, a story about a magnificent woman whose dedication to protecting the line of the Godslayer didn’t preclude her from dabbling in politics, planning assassinations, overthrowing duchies, establishing kingdoms, dancing sensually enough to make jaws drop, and having a whale of a time while doing so.

Now, that is a life worth living. Jan 09, Adam Knight rated it it was ok. Suffered through “Belgarath the Sorcerer” despite it being the extended version of history we already knew. Having to go through it all onceagain in Polgara’s tale was nigh on insufferable.

As this book went along I began to find traces of the “smug voice” that has ruined Eddings’ work past this realm for me. For hardcore Eddings fans only. Sep 03, Miriam rated it did not like it Shelves: Bloated biography of one of my least favorite of Edding’s all-kinda-the-same characters. His women, especially, seem to all be cut from the same bitchy and bossy cloth.
