Présentation de l'éditeur

"BELGARIAD is exactly the kind of fantasy I like. It has magic, adventure, humor, mystery, and a certain delightful human insight."
PIERS ANTHONY
The master Sorcerer Belgarath and his daughter Polgara the arch-Sorceress were on the trail of the Orb, seeking to regain its saving power before the final disaster prophesized by the legends. And with them went Garion, a simple farm boy only months before, but now the focus of the struggle. He had never believed in sorcery and wanted no part of it. Yet with every league they traveled, the power grew in him, forcing him to acts of wizardry he could not accept.

En savoir plus sur l'auteur

David Eddings, né en 1931 dans l'Etat de Washington, a publié son premier roman en 1973. D'abord employé chez Boeing, il démissionna, fit un petit détour par l'enseignement, puis se retrouva... directeur d'un supermarché à Denver. Refroidi par un hold-up suivi d'une fusillade, il abandonna son poste, revint chez lui, à Spokane, et décida de se consacrer à la littérature.
Leigh Eddings, son épouse, qui avait commencé une carrière dans l'armée de l'air, collaborait depuis toujours à ses romans. Elle s'occupait plus particulièrement des personnages féminins et de la fin des romans ! Et cela fonctionnait à merveille puisque David Eddings est best-seller depuis 20 ans aux USA et a également déclenché une véritable passion à l'étranger, notamment en France avec ses deux cycles cultes : La Belgariade et La Mallorée.
Le célèbre couple-roi de la fantasy a de nouveau figuré sur les listes des best-sellers avec Le Réveil des anciens dieux, premier volume de la tétralogie Les Rêveurs.
Leigh Eddings s'est éteinte en février 2007 à l'âge de 69 ans, suivi en 2009 par son époux âgé de soixante-dix-sept ans.

This book suspends the reader in a majestic world of sorcery 5 novembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Queen of Sorcery is second in The Belgrariad series, following Pawn of Prophecy. This series takes the reader into an entire world of fantasy and sorcery all its own. The characterization was outstanding. The vividness with which the author described the characters was remarkable. Eddings has a way in which he gives you front row seats inside each character's mind. Throughout the book I could always tell how each character would respond in a situation. Also, David Eddings introduces so many characters in this book. There is Garion, an average scullery boy just months before and now the center of the struggle. Belgarath, the ancient but mischevious sorcerer. Polgara, the perfectly beautiful and sorceress and daughter of Belgarath. Durnik, the sensible Sendarian smith. Barak, the hulking bear of a man from Cherek. Silk, the small rat-faced mna from Drasnia who often disgueses as a Drasnian merchant. Lelldorin, the brave and rebellios young Arend who proves to be an extrememly skilled archer. Hettar, the stern-faced Algar with the ability to talk to horses. And Mandorallen, the extrememly strong and noble Mimbrate kinght. The plot is fantasitc. The story line revolves around Garion. Garion has to overcome many conflicts, both mentally and physically. Throughout the book I felt involved in Garion's struggle with the self-resented fsct that he is a sorcerer. In conclusion, Queen of Sorcery is a wonderfully written piece of literature. Its world is indepth and complete. Every addoloscent can relate with Garion as he conflicts with his ability. I think this book should be read by every young adult who has ever asked "Why me?" in times of crisis.

Whipped Cream, and a few Nuts 2 septembre 2005
Par J. Mccoy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Eddings continues to deliver a story that is so light and delectable, one cannot help but refer to it as whipped cream for the mind.

As the series builds, a few "nuts" are thrown into the mix, and trust me, this is a good thing.

Garion's little band grows, gathering a more delightful cast of characters. Eddings really grabs the reader and gives him every reason to love and sympathise with the characters.

Additionally, Eddings takes the reader on a continued journed through his world. Unlike many author's who draw a map and then tell their story in one locale, Eddings established a map in the first pages of "Pawn of Prohesy" and then he takes us by the hand and walks us through a few countries at a time. Not only do you get to see the characters' growth along the way, you get to see them in differing locales and their reaction to each.

Garion continues to grow into his powers, though they are nowhere near controlable as of yet, and we begin to understand a bit more about his destiny.

My favorite moment in this book comes when "Aunt Pol" reveals to Garion just how much she has gone through to help him and his family. Instantly evaporated are the tedious complaints that can come from s many reluctant heroes, and Garion begins to grow into the young man he will be.

I continue to adore this series. Try it with the expectation of some lighter fantasy reading and you won't be disappointed.

Fine holiday fun 9 mai 2005
Par Jared Garrett - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Obviously if you are looking for deep and deeply moving literature, David Eddings is not the author you are looking for. However, if you crave straightforward storytelling in which setting, character and plot are unfolded at a steady, entertaining pace, this is the right book for you. Heck, this is the right series for you. I'll even go so far as to say this is the right author for you. Eddings doesn't let himself or his stories get bogged down in endless description of the nice little world he has created. Rather, he has a lot of story to tell and he tells it crisply and with steady determination. His characters reveal humanity at just the right intervals, drawing us readers into the story deftly. Eddings has returned to good versus evil, magic and destiny (like the old, delicious fantasy of our younger years).

As for this book specifically, it continues the Belgariad quite satisfyingly. Garion does seem a little bit slow at times, but really, is it easy for a young man to come to terms with being the King of the World? Polgara steps up in this addition also, adding to our knowledge of the way magic works in this universe. Honestly, the fringe characters are my favorite thing about this series. Destinies intertwine wonderfully as one man fights the beast within while another avoids his birthright at all costs.

All in all, thoroughly enjoyable reading.

my eyesight won't handle the small print of the originals and my arthritic hands don't like to turn pages in small paperback boo 9 juillet 2014

I bought these books when they were first published ... I thought I would never be able to re-read them ... my eyesight won't handle the small print of the originals and my arthritic hands don't like to turn pages in small paperback books. Thank you so much for publishing these for Kindle! I hope the rest of this series and the others by the Eddings will be available for Kindle soon ....

The best in the series 28 mai 2002
Par Fredrik Pettersson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
'Queen of Sorcery' features the continued travels of Garion and his friends through several of the western kingdoms. They gain some new travel companions, and continue to follow in the tracks of the thief who stole the stone of Aldur. During the travels, Garion begins to realize that there is something which sets him apart from normal people, a fact which he has a hard time to accept.
This is the sequel to 'Pawn of Prophecy', and the second book in the amazing series of five books known as 'the Belgariad'. The series is later followed by another five in 'the Malloreon'. The story is the classic fight between the Evil which seeks to rule the world, and the Good which wants to save it, but what really makes the book so great is the characters. They are all very distinct from each other, with their own personality and desires. Eddings manages to keep them all separate, so that they are not mixed together in a faceless group. Instead they each have their part to play in the quest to save the world. If I had to pick a favorite among the five books of 'the Belgariad', this would be it.
I have read the entire series at least 20 times by now, and it remains my favorite fantasy. It is lighter than 'The Wheel of Time' series by Robert Jordan, which makes it suitable for younger readers as well, but it is great for anyone from around 12 to 112. I think many, like me, read this series as their first fantasy, and it is a great start to get intrested in the world of magic and swordfights. By now Harry Potter is probably a more common start, but this series is still required reading for fantasy lovers.
