King of the Murgos (The Malloreon #2)
This review is coming off as sort of negative, but I did enjoy this book, mainly because the characters have developed a great deal since the first Belgariad...more
I like this series, it's decent. It's a fantasy series, it written very formulaic to the genre, yet I still find it entertaining enough.
Eriond's character is the first to really make me feel like I need to look up spoilers. Although I am highly interested in learning about the Seer and Toth. I was actually surprised they didn't get Geran back in this book. I'm starting to get the idea this may be the premise of the entire series. Questing forward to find Geran...more
"Good and Evil?" Durnik suggested.

In this case the important thing is Garion's new-born son, who has been abducted by a Grolim preistess...more
Book Two of the Malloreon. The infant son of Garion and Ce'nedra has been foully kidnapped. And thus, they begin the great quest to rescue the child, with the immortal Belgarath the Sorcerer, his daughter Polgara the Sorceress, and inevitably, the little Drasnina Silk.
These books are great for the reader that enjoys fantasy series reading (so if you prefer a one off, try something else). They develop an amazing story and history that kept me engaged. The two series are intimately related/connected. The world is more of a high...more

Isn't he just a librarian?' Garion asked, 'somebody who looks after books?'
That's where all the rest of scholarship starts, Garion. All the books in the world won't help you if they're just piled up in a heap.”
