Pawn of Prophecy David Eddings Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

A fierce dispute among the Gods and the theft of a powerful Orb leaves the World divided into five kingdoms. Young Garion, with his "Aunt Pol" and an elderly man calling himself Wolf --a father and daughter granted near-immortality by one of the Gods -- set out on a complex mission.  In the process, as Garion grows into his early teens, he learns to defend himself, grapples with a wild boar, uncovers spies at a king's palace, learns about sorceryand starts to gain a sense of what his own destiny may be.

“Fabulous . . . Eddings has a marvelous storyteller style . . . exceedingly well portrayed and complex people." 
- Anne McCaffrey

"Eddings' BELGARIAD is exactly the kind of fantasy I like. It has magic, adventure, humor, mystery, and a certain delightful human insight."
- Piers Anthony on PAWN OF PROPHECY

"Absorbing. Touches all the right Fantasy bases. Warring gods, political intrigues, supernatural creatures, and appealingly human magicians." 
-Publishers Weekly on QUEEN OF SORCERY

"A graceful, fluid style of storytelling rare in fantasy writing.” 
- Publishers Weekly

    I’ve longed for the day when The Belgariad would come to iBooks. I own The Belgariad, The Mallorean, Polgara the Sorceress, Belgarath the Sorcer, and the Rivan Codex in paperback, and have wanted to carry them with me on my iOS device. Hopefully the remainder of these books will be brought to iBooks.

    Eddings (R.I.P) is big time. About time his novels are back out in the open again. I can't wait to see the other books come on board.
  • First book in a great series

    These books are wonderful. Very well written, but underrated and not well known. Give them a chance and you won't regret it.

    Thank you IBooks for finally putting this book in your options. Please Please put the rest of the series in also. Finding this was like running into a old dear friend. Thank you.
  • Rest of the series?

    This is a classic fantasy series and one of my favorites. I'd always been mildly disappointed that they weren't available on iBooks but then I saw the Pawn of Prophecy (book 1) had indeed become available. Yes! But now disappointment again that the rest of the Belgariad is missing!! I hope to see them for purchase soon! These books take me back to my youth when I first read them. They are more lighthearted than something like A Song of Ice and Fire (most things are) but this is what makes them so enjoyable. Highly recommended when the rest are made available.

    This is a great book! I read it years ago but I'm confused why the other books in the series are not available. Come on iBooks get your act together!
