Many thousands of years ago, two prophecies came into being - and a moment was fixed, when only one would determine the future. This moment - a clash between the maimed god Torak and the descendant of the Rivan king, is approaching... Garion, brought up as a farm lad but now beginning to understand the extent of his part in the prophecy, and working hard to control his sorcerous power, is travelling towards this meeting in a sinister tower where the evil god lies sleeping. With him is the wise sorcerer Belgarath. And Ce'Nedra - a wilful young princess who refuses to believe in sorcery. But is terrified that Garion will die in the coming confrontation...
The third title in a terrific high fantasy saga set against a history of seven thousand years of struggles between Gods and Kings and men.
About the Author
David Eddings (1931-2009) published his first novel, High Hunt, in 1973, before turning to the field of fantasy with the Belgariad, soon followed by the Malloreon. Born in Spokane, Washington, and raised in the Puget Sound area north of Seattle, he received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Reed College in Portland, Oregon, in 1954, and a master of arts degree from the University of Washington in 1961. He served in the US Army, worked as a buyer for the Boeing Company, and was both a grocery clerk and a college English teacher. He lived in Nevada until his death, at the age of 77.
"A classic coming-of-age epic ... The Belgariad will always have a place of honor on my bookshelves" -- Christopher Paolini "Fabulous" -- Anne McCaffrey "Fun, exciting, intriguing fantasy in which the characters are as important as the quest and magical elements ... immerse yourself and enjoy!" -- Darren Shan "Filled with action and trepidation on each turn of the page ... So those of you who love grouchy gremlins and flying fairies, I would give this book my fullest recommendation" Irish News
