Best Belgariad and Malloren Books

The Pawn of Prophecy: The author David Eddings has managed a highly likable book series, which can be read by both the young and old readers as well. Pawn of Prophecy is the first book in the Belgariad book series. The book, as well as the entire series, is not extremely thought proving or deep; it is an enjoyable combination of humor, adventure, and fun as well. In this book, the author David Eddings introduces the readers to Garion, a native farm boy, who discovers that he is not ordinary at all.

As the story progresses, the boy continues to discover that he has different sets of powers. The story begins as Garion lives with his loving and stern aunt. However, once assassins arrive, Garion and his aunt manage to escape and ever since that day, the two never looked back. As the story continues, Garion discovers that he is exceedingly important, more important than he would have ever imagined.

With that said, the scale and detail of the world that David Eddings has created are staggering, and the interplay between the characters is a frequent delight. Some of the elements used in the storyline may appear to be familiar to a majority of urban fantasy readers.

Guardians of the West: The first book in the Malloren book series, which is a follow up of the Belgariad book series. In the Guardians of the West, the readers meet once again with Garion, the protagonist. This book details the adventures of Garion and his companions. Unlike the previous books, Guardians of the West is not only deeper but also darker as well. The story that the readers are presented with in Guardians of the West details the final confrontations between the child of the dark and the child of the light.

Just like the first set of books, for the most of the book, we see the side of the story of the child of light. The friendships are relationships presented in the first book also continue in this book, and they grow deeper and deeper as the story continues. As the first few books focussed mainly of Garion’s coming of age, Guardians of the West explores some much difficult themes.

Queen of the Sorcery: The second installment in the Belgariad book series. As the second book in the Belgariad book series, Queen of Sorcery picks up from where the first installment, Guardians of the West had left off from. Garion and his companions are heading to the southern kingdoms as they are trailing a thief who had managed to steal one of the most important artifacts in the world.

As the group continues to travel, more and more members continue to come aboard. Apparently, this was in fulfillment of the prophecy, which is one of the main themes in the Belgariad book series. The author, David Eddings continues to develop his characters further and further.
