Discover the magic of The Malloreon-David Eddings's acclaimed series, the sequel to his bestselling The Belgariad. Now the first three Malloreon books appear in a single volume, taking us on an epic quest across strange lands among gods, kings, sorcerers, and ordinary men. It is a gripping tale of two ancient warring destinies fighting a battle of good against evil.

Garion has slain the evil God Torak and is now the King of Riva. The prophecy has been fulfilled-or so it seems. For there is a dire warning, as a great evil brews in the East. Now Garion once again finds himself with the fate of the world resting on his shoulders. When Garion's infant son is kidnapped by Zandramas, the Child of Dark, a great quest begins to rescue the child. Among those on the dangerous mission are Garion and his wife, Queen Ce'Nedra, and the immortal Belgarath the Sorcerer and his daughter, Polgara. They must make their way through the foul swamps of Nyissa, then into the lands of the Murgos. Along the way, they will face grave dangers-captivity, a horde of demons, a fatal plague-while Zandramas plots to use Garion's son in a chilling ritual that will make the Dark Prophecy supreme. . .

As much as I love the Belgariad, I think the Malloreon is even better. I feel that Eddings grew as a writer, and it shows. The writing in this series is more mature, though still with the irreverent, sarcastic quality that I loved from the first series. I just felt that the events and the stakes were higher than they were in the Belgariad. And the additions of the new characters were welcome, without taking away from the old ones. I think the biggest and most welcome change is in Garion. In the Belgariad, Garion is a young boy on the verge of manhood who is being pushed this way and that by the hands of the prophecy, but in the Malloreon, Garion is a man, a king, and a husband. He is capable of making his own decisions, even in opposing the prophecy when he feels the need to. You do need the foundation of the Belgariad, to understand where everything began, but all in all, the Malloreon is a richer series.
