Overview

Millions of readers have discovered the magic of David Eddings’ New York Times bestselling series The Belgariad. Now the first three books in this monumental epic appear in a single volume. Here, long-time fans can rediscover the wonder—and the uninitiated can embark upon a thrilling new journey of fantasy and adventure.

It all begins with the theft of the Orb that for so long protected the West from an evil god. As long as the Orb was at Riva, the prophecy went, its people would be safe from this corrupting power. Garion, a simple farm boy, is familiar with the legend of the Orb, but skeptical in matters of magic. Until, through a twist of fate, he learns not only that the story of the Orb is true, but that he must set out on a quest of unparalleled magic and danger to help recover it. For Garion is a child of destiny, and fate itself is leading him far from his home, sweeping him irrevocably toward a distant tower—and a cataclysmic confrontation with a master of the darkest magic.

You know it is a great series when you go back and read them over and over...which I have and will continue to do again and again. I really wish I could get them all (Belgariad and Mallorean) for my Nook. I am in the military (frequently deployed) and must pack light, it sure would be nice to have my favorites with me when I am away.

I have read this story many times in hardcover & paperback. Make it available in digital format and I will buy it again, as will many people. It is simply one of the best stories ever written, recommended for all ages.

I have loved this series ever since it was published. I've "loved" two sets to death. WHEN, WHEN, WHEN will we see this offered as a Nook Book? I have been checking and waiting and hoping. Sigh.

NEEDS TO BE AN EBOOK
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Being in the Northeast with all this horrid snow, I recently had the opportunity to curl up on the couch with a good book and a warm blanket for an extended period of time. The Belgariad was a series of books I'd read in High School and when I saw it collected in this format, I grabbed both volumes with a feeling of nostalgia. It was great to read this story again! The storyline is familiar (Good vs Evil) but the participants in this familiar struggle are so well designed, you enjoy the ride.

I love this series and its sequels, but why are they not released as e-books for my Nook?

I first read this book when I was thirteen and have re-read it about seven or eight times in the six years that have passed! Great book, vivid imagery, and relateable characters with flair.

I love this series! I started reading Eddings when I 13 and fell in love with style. He's not wordy and doesnt use flowery language. Unlike some authors he leaves a lot to the imagination of the reader, which is one of the reasons I love to read, it allows my imagination to soar!

Not my favorite of David Eddings writings, but he still captivates with his descriptive writing.
