After the birth of the twins, Poledra was presumed to have died, but her daughters knew that she had simply had to go away. The main part of the story then opens, revealing that Polgara and her twin sister Beldaran were raised by their adoptive uncles, the deformed Beldin and the twin sorcerers Beltira and Belkira all disciples of Aldurlike Belgarathafter the apparent death of their mother, Poledra.
Men are all I enjoyed the story of these books so much. The story is told in such a way that I could almost feel my heart break every time something terrible happened, showing how awful it can really be to have a lifespan as long as Polgara’s. Eddings has a way of writing the same story sometimes with different names over and over, and this book is no real exception.
According to various historical dates listed in Belgarath the Sorcerer and Polgara the Sorceress we are able to determine that Polgara and Beldaran were born in the year A.

Jan 25, Amadee Tous rated it it was amazing.
There are also some inconsistencies from the earlier texts which is only natural, over so much time. A relatively young Polgara spent many years in the Arendish duchy of Vo Wacune. His contemporary novels, High Hunt and The Losersare much better written because in them he assumes a rather different style which works well.
Polgara the Sorceress begins with Ce’Nedra entreating Polgara to write a book about her life, filling in the gaps left by her father’s story, Belgarath the Sorcerer. But as darkness falls so will too the luck and love that Polgara possess which have up until now saved the world… This has to be the crowning achievement of the greatest fantasy epic ever, where once again David and Leigh display the scope of imagination, humor and sheer depth of storytelling power which has made this series so popular for fantasy lovers in modern times.
Ultimately dabid earned the gratitude of the dukes and her own oplgara, and she became the Duchess of Erat. This book held my interest more than Belgarath polgsra Sorcerer, but again was marred by inconsistencies.
Belgarath with Beldaran’s help eventually negotiated an uneasy peace, and Polgara began her academic training. Bit of a shame. Stereotypes and archetypes abound, and there are few surprises in the novel.
It is a fantastic end to the series, a story about a magnificent woman whose dedication to protecting the line of the Godslayer didn’t preclude her from dabbling in politics, planning assassinations, overthrowing duchies, establishing kingdoms, dancing sensually enough to make jaws drop, and having a whale of a time while doing so.
She became an expert in not being noticed, often living in the towns of Sendaria.
Books by David Eddings. It’s a wonderful ending to the series, and a reminder of sacrifices made to bring about the changes we need in the world. When the Rivan King Beldaran’s descendant was assassinated, Polgara became the guardian of a secret line of surviving heirs, incognito in Sendaria and its neighboring domains.
Beldaran soon died, but Polgara, as a sorceress and disciple of Aldur, did not age. 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.
When I first started reading the Belgariad I thought Davld was extremely dry and I couldn’t understand everyone’s An amazing companion to Belgarath the Sorcerer.
It was there that she first learned how to access her powers as a sorceress. There is a distinct sentimental vein to David Eddings – I once read an interview in which he referred to Tolkien J. When the Rivan King was killed by assassins, Polgara became the guardian of a secret line of surviving heirs. Of course, the fact that she watches over the Rivan line – her sister’s line – is also an important plot element.
The amusing Arendish political escapades do not make up for the serious commitment to eyerolling required.
Polgara the Sorceress (novel)
The only reason to read this book is in order to have read all the books of the Belgarion world, and as with the rest of Eddings fantasy, it is an easy read that can be absorbed in a matter of hours without any noticable brain activity. It’s been an incredible ride.
