Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
King Belgarion and Queen Ce'Nedra are still searching for their kidnapped son Geran in this second volume of The Mallorean, Eddings's sequel to his bestselling fantasy series The Belgariad. After pursuing the Bear Cult in the last book, they now have information that the culprit is actually the evil Zandramas. Despite the seeming urgency of their quest, the journey becomes almost leisurely as the company, including the ancient sorcerer Belgarath, his daughter Polgara and the spy called Silk, stop repeatedly along the way. They visit the cave-dwelling mystics, the Ulgos, the imperial Tolnedrans, the forest Dryads, the Serpent Queen and the city of Rak Urga, where they make an unlikely ally of timid, wily Urgit, King of the Murgos. If this is seldom really gripping, the flavorful interplay among Eddings's stubborn, resourceful characters keeps the narrative continually entertaining. (April)
Library Journal
As the words of the Prophecy lead the Rivan King Garion and his companions across the lands of the Snake-Queen and the once hostile Murgos, the malignant Zandramaskidnapper of Garion's sonpursues another Prophecy which, if fulfilled, will lead to the triumph of Darkness. Eddings continues to provide solid fantasy entertainment featuring engaging characters and warm, wry humor in this sequel to Guardians of the West. Recommended for fantasy collections. JC

    More great stuff from eddings

    The plot thickens as eddings does an excellent job in keeping us interested in the characters he introduced previously. a fantastic read for when you have a lot of extra time on your hands.

    Could have been better.

    This book was absolutely horrible. The plot was hackneyed, the characters were flat and without souls, and every page of it made me dread having to read the next. I actually read all of it just to see if a book could be that terrible all the way through. Any self respecting human being should not force themselves to read this book like I so unfortunately did. Terrible.

    One of the best books by Eddings

    I think that this was definetly one of the best books out by David and Leigh Eddings, and my favorite in the 'Malloreon' series. I think that there are a few plot twists that no one could see coming... at first glance I didn't know how the title related to a storyline, but it definetly does.

    Wonderful!

    This book is a great continuation of Eddings series. It has a great plot. The characters and events are very well written and leave you on the edge of your seat all the way to the end. This a woderful book and I would recommend it to anyone.
