This series is a timeless classic, that are dear to my heart. The characters are like family, that you want to visit again and again. I first read this series in high school and it pulled me into the story until I finished it. I then had to go and buy the next book in the series right then so I could continue the story.I loved the bantering between Garion and Ce’Nedra, his future wife. We actually see the relationship of these two characters change from tolerating each other to loving each other. She was destined to be his future queen. Garion has to go by himself to steal the Orb that is protected by the evil God Torak.  MAGICIAN’S GAMBIT has a well-developed story line and characters. I love this book and series, and I give this book 5/5 stars.

BOOK REVIEW- PAWN OF PROPHECY BY DAVID EDDINGS

PAWN OF PROPHECY BY DAVID EDDINGSPAWN OF PROPHECY-(BELGARIAD SERIES)BOOK#1

 

“Eddings’ BELGARIAD is exactly the kind of fantasy I like. It has magic, adventure, humor, mystery, and a certain delightful human insight.”
Piers Anthony
Long ago, the Storyteller claimed, in this first book of THE BELGARIAD, the evil god Torak drove men and Gods to war. But Belgarath the Sorcerer led men to reclaim the Orb that protected men of the West. So long as it lay at Riva, the prophecy went, men would be safe.
But Garion did not believe in such stories. Brought up on a quiet farm by his Aunt Pol, how could he know that the Apostate planned to wake dread Torak, or that he would be led on a quest of unparalleled magic and danger by those he loved–but did not know…?

PAWN OF PROPHECY hooked me from the very start. David Eddings was a great story-teller that made his characters come alive and basically jump of the page. He was one of the masters in  world building, bringing to life a world of magic. It starts with Aunt Pol (Polgara)  and Garion on a farm sitting down at a meal, with an old story-teller Belgareth. What Garion does not know is that his life is about to change. Apostate has awakened Torak and he has to find the Orb to destroy Torak before it is too late. This book has sharp dialogue, with Aunt Pol’s sarcasm makes for a great read. When I first started this series in high school, I could not read them fast enough. When it came to reading the last book, I had just finished book 4 CASTLE OF WIZARDRY,I had to go right then to the book store and buy the last book in the series ENCHANTER’S END GAME.I recommend this book and the whole Belgariad series to anyone who loves a good fantasy novel. I give PAWN OF PROPHECY 5/5 STARS.

BOOK CURIOSITY

I am sitting here trying to write a review for a book and no words seem to be coming to me. It has been like this all day. I guess it is because I have been sick and just don’t feel like doing anything. So it got me to thinking, sometimes that can be a bad thing or a good thing. It just depends on the idea and if it will get me in trouble. I am curious as to what are your favorite books to read over and over, and what drew you to pick that book? I will begin with one of the first romances that I picked up. What initially drew me to it was the cover and I was looking for something around the house to read. The book was originally my Mother’s book and I found it in the laundry room when I went to put my clothes on to wash. The book was by KATHLEEN E. WOODIWISS WOLF AND THE DOVE. I could read this book over and over, in which I have. About seven times actually. I still own that paperback copy. It is almost falling apart, so I went to my local used book store and found a hardback copy.

Another book  I can read over and over is all the DAVID EDDINGS  GARION UNIVERSE SERIES. I could never get enough of these books. I have read each series several times. I love the different characters and the story. One of my favorite characters is Polgara. I love the white streak in her hair, and she is an awesome sorceress. I can also read all the Patricia Briggs Mercy Thompson series, Ilona Andrews Kate Daniels series, and the Kim Harrison Rachel Morgan series over and over.

What book or series can you read over and over?
