Polgara the Sorceress (novel)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. That said, “Polgara the Sorceress” is a fundamental read for any Eddings fan, especially for those who crave a sense of completion. I didn’t enjoy it 20 years ago either but with the changes in culture we have experience in that time it’s even harder sometimes to read. Fun read, made me want to re-read the Belgariad and Mallorean.
The characters welcome you like old friends,because by now, they really are like old friends. As this book went along I began ;olgara find traces of the “smug voice” that has ruined Eddings’ work past this realm for me. I’m really not in a bad mood, these books lately just deserve two stars!
I love the world that it is set sorceres it is so well developed even if it is a bit static, no culture stays the same for years and I appreciated getting Polgara’s adventures that rounded out Belgarath’s. Especially since there ain’t no more Garion stories coming to clear that up.
Businessmen tend to wait. Yes it’s easy for someone who has lived a long time to become very ingrained in their thinking but she’s done so much stuff and with wolves a lot of the time the female is the leader. Now, in their defense, this does not in any of their books prevent women from doing all sorts of interesting and significant things, but good god this pernicious s thinking makes me flinch away from the page about every fourth paragraph.
This is the story of the Queen of truth, love, rage and destiny and which within the first few pages will take ddavid on the most astonishing fantastical journey into the vale of Aldur. The story ends there, overlapping with Garion’s earliest memories as recounted at the beginning of the Belgariad.

Ordained to make peace and make war, to gain love and lose love, Polgara lives out her family’s rich prophecy in the ceaseless struggle between the Light and the Dark. This is where you type your review. If you are not already sick and tired of Eddings’s fantasy and the Belgarion tales, you definitely will be after Polgara the Sorceress.
Do a good job. As sorcerezs Belgarath, there is plenty of action as well as the more human aspects of the story to keep things ticking over and plenty of the behind the scenes stuff that the main series has missed.
Polgara the Sorceress begins with Ce’Nedra entreating Polgara to write a book sorcerses her life, filling in the gaps left by her father’s story, Belgarath the Sorcerer. This book held my interest more than Belgarath the Sorcerer, but again was marred by inconsistencies. Beldaran was fair-haired and Polgara was dark.
By the last book in the series, Eddings’s easy style and insider jokes settles on readers like a comfortable and worn cloak.
Would have been the perfect pllgara to the series had he just not opened up the speculations about who Wolf really is at the end, but I guess nothings perfect.

For anyone who loves delving into an entirely new world when they read, this is the series for you. After the birth of the twins, Poledra was presumed to have died, but her daughters knew that she had simply had to go away.
I remember enjoying the Belgariad and the Mallorean years ago although a recent reread of the former shows that it doesn’t hold up wellbut this is not staying in my collection.

Like Belgarathit davidd presented as a first-person narrative recounting the life of the eponymous character, Polgara, framed by a prologue and epilogue in the third person] placing it in context relative to the earlier stories. I found myself falling in love with davkd the new characters throughout the story, however.
Here is the legendary life story of a woman of wit, passion, and complex emotions, a woman born of two majestic parents who could not have been more unlike one another. I’ve seen a lot of reviews complaining about the sexism of this book Eddings seems to hhe men and women think differently, which is probably true, but also that each gender all think the same, which is definitely not ; actually I find the racism more offensive.
This is a great addition to the story told with Polgara’s usual dry wit, cutting sarcasm and superb observations. My daughters have even recruited their friends to read them and again, everyone is a fan. When Vo Wacune was destroyed, Erat became part of the new kingdom of Sendaria.
