Belgarath the Sorcerer/Eddings, David/Paper/0007217099/S014-A
Balgariad, The Prequel
Eagerly awaited for a decade, here at last is the full epic story of Belgarath, the great sorcerer learned in the Will and the Word on whom the fate of the world depends. Already his haunting, near-mythical presence throughout the five bestselling books of The Belgariad has captured the imagination of readers. Now Belgarath the Sorcerer surges into life. His power and wisdom illuminate mysteries dating from the dawn of time - yet his story will shock those schooled in the prophecies of the Mrin Codex and the Ashabine Oracles underlying The Belgariad...
This is Belgarath's story, recorded by the sorcerer himself by the use of powers learned over centuries from his God Aldur. An orphan youth called plainly Garath, he wandered the world - fleeing often from charges of theft as he lived on his wits - until Aldur took him in. He became the God's first disciple and was always his best loved.
Aldur knew that his days of contemplation, gazing in peace upon the Orb of Stone, were soon to end. His brother the gragon-god Torak burned with desire for the Orb though it might destroy hem and crack the world asurnde. The War of the Gods rages through Belgarath's story. And the light of truth shines on the secrets of the great sorcerer's love for his wife, the wolf Poledra.
A hugely entertaining work of great daring, wit, grandeur and excitement that confirms the role of Belgarath the Sorcerer as one of the mightiest fantasy creations of the century.
