Magician's Gambit 213pg- **** This is much more like it! Almost makes reading the first two books worthwhile. The environments are much more compelling, the danger more real. It was very satisfying to finally piece together (for the most part) what the prophecies and the whole struggle was all about. If you make it this far you won't be disappointed. ( )

Prosegue la sotoria di Blgarath, Polgara, Garion & C. Ed il livello della narrazione è sempre elevato. Devo dire che è il primo libro nel quale le varie divinità appaiono, ma appaiono come se fossero esseri quasi normali. Anche i "super poteri" di Polgara e Belgarath sono rovinano la narrazione o la storia, come mi è capitato di vedere in altri libri. Non vedo l'ora di mettere le mani sul prossimo capitolo! :) ( )

The promise of the earlier books seems to dissipate in this third volume of the Belgariad, when it becomes obvious that we'll have more adventures, but it'll be like a Wednesday night role-playing session. There'll be some interesting things happen, but we all have to quit by school-night bedtime, so it won't be very engrossing. ( )

For Dorothy, who has the enduring grace to put up with Eddings men, and for Wayne, for reasons we both understand but could never be put into words.
First words
Being an Account of how Gorim sought a God for his People and of how he found UL upon the sacred Mountain of Prolgu.
- based upon The Book of Ulgo and other fragments

At the Beginning of Days, the world was spun out of darkness by the seven Gods, and they also created beasts and fowls, serpents and fishes, and lastly Man.
Her Imperial Highness, Princess Ce'Nedra, jewel of the House of Borune and the loveliest flower of the Tolnedran Empire, sat cross-legged on a sea chest in the oak-beamed cabin beneath the stern of Captain Greldik's ship, nibbling thoughtfully on the end of a tendril of her coppery hair as she watched the Lady Polgara attend to the broken arm of Belgarath the Sorcerer.

Ce'Nedra, Imperial Princess of Tolnedra, had joined a dangerous mission to recover the stolen Orb that supposedly protected the West from the evil God Torak.
