Queen of Sorcery 237pg- **1/2 There's a place in The Lord of the Rings where Tolkien skips an entire two weeks of the journey - because nothing of interest happens. Eddings could have learned a lot from Tolkien - here nothing of interest happens for almost the entire book! ( )

Il secondo volume continua bene come il primo. I personaggi crescono bene, soprattutto Garion con i suoi problemi adolescenziali e quelli legati al futuro che lo attende (che futuro sia lo si capisce, ma l'autore lo porta avanti molto bene). Consigliato! ( )

Leuk, avontuurlijk tweede deel uit deze serie. Het wordt wat serieuzer en duisterder en dat komt het verhaal ten goede. De karakters blijven nog wat plat en cliché uitgetekend hoewel Garion wel wat groeit. Het zou leuk zijn als andere personages, zoals Durnik daar ook wat meer ruimte voor krijgen. Dat geldt ook voor de "slechteriken". ( )

the second volume convinced me that this would be a better read than the "sword of Shannara" series by Terry Brooks. So I signed up to read the third one. The first sentence was faint praise though. ( )

The story picks up a lot. The copy I was reading contains the first three books in the series and began with a letter from the author detailing how he realizes how simplistic the series is. A mighty quest with varied characters culminating in an epic battle. I'll finish the series at some point. I do enjoy the series but I would not give it more than three stars. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345335651, Mass Market Paperback)

"BELGARIAD is exactly the kind of fantasy I like. It has magic, adventure, humor, mystery, and a certain delightful human insight."
PIERS ANTHONY
The master Sorcerer Belgarath and his daughter Polgara the arch-Sorceress were on the trail of the Orb, seeking to regain its saving power before the final disaster prophesized by the legends. And with them went Garion, a simple farm boy only months before, but now the focus of the struggle. He had never believed in sorcery and wanted no part of it. Yet with every league they traveled, the power grew in him, forcing him to acts of wizardry he could not accept.
