Nov 17, Sean Hendricks rated it did not like it Shelves: I’ve tried to accept her and having read her story I think I understand her a little better, but she continues to appear impossibly arrogant.

Oct 23, Pete Mcgarel rated it really liked it. For many years, Polgara hated her father. Belgarath with Beldaran’s help eventually negotiated an uneasy peace, and Polgara began her training under him. Polgara bitterly resented the “loss” of her sister, who had been the polgarra of her life, but the shared loss eventually brought father and daughter closer together, and Polgara was presented for the first time as beautiful Polgara the Sorceress.

I’ll just be annoyed while I do it. There is naturally davi overlap as Belgarath has been alive through the whole of his daughter’s lifebut they concentrate on different aspects of the history of the Eddings’ world.

She imposed her own particular notions on the people of her duchy, modernizing its government and freeing her serfs.

Still it was interesting to revisit my teenage years, I wonder how well the original series would live up to re-reading or would it really annoy me. Jul 23, Brenda rated it it was amazing. This is still an excellent read even though I have very little sympathy with the so called heroine, because Eddings is just a brilliant story teller.

The first prequel tells a first person narrative of the life of Belgarath the Sorcerer’the Eternal Man’; this second one is the same, courtesy of his daughter, Polgara. As a teenager I was pretty fond of David Edding’s books, but they don’t hold up well after time.

Polgara looked gravely into his face. Over the years, she maintained a relationship with the descendants of Beldaran and Riva that would eventually become her life’s work. She later becomes the wife of Durnikthe blacksmith turned sorcerer, known as the Man with Two Lives. Ultimately she earned the gratitude of the dukes and her own duchy, and she became the Duchess of Erat.

Due to different publishing standards, the large text was often divided for international markets.

Belgariad Prequels 2 books. Following Torak’s defeat at Vo Mimbre, Polgara returned to caring for the descendants of Riva, eventually raising Garion. It is a fantastic end to the series, a story about a magnificent woman whose dedication to protecting the line of the Godslayer didn’t preclude her from dabbling in politics, planning assassinations, overthrowing duchies, polgzra kingdoms, dancing sensually enough to make jaws drop, and having a whale of a time edidngs doing so.

The strong point polgafa this series was the adventure, not the characterization nor the witty dialogue which Eddings seemed to imagine he was writing so I see no need to read this unless you are a Belgariad completist. When Vo Wacune was destroyed, Erat became part of the new kingdom of Sendaria. But while I often dislike the main character and never warm to PoledraI do love the overall story this book is a part of and as with all my reading, I’m going to reread it for completeness every time.
