It was late spring. (from the first line)
Garion, the King of Riva, finds himself caught between the Dark Prophecy and the Prophecy of Light when he searches a previously obscure part of the Mrin Codex to identify someone or something called Zandramas *Author: Eddings, David *Series Title: The Malloreon *Publication Date: 1998/03/01 *Number of Pages: 438 *Binding Type: Paperback *Language: English *Depth: 1.25 *Width: 4.00 *Height: 7.00
From the Publisher:
Garion had slain the evil God Torak and had been crowned King of Riva. The Prophecy was fulfilled--or so it seemed. And then again, Garion found himself a pawn, caught between the two ancient Prophecies, with the fate of the world somehow resting on him.
Annotation:
The blend of high fantasy and amusing banter that David Eddings perfected in his popular series the Belgariad continues in a five-volume sequel series, the Malloreon. In the Belgariad, Garion, a budding sorcerer, fulfilled a prophecy by reclaiming the throne of Riva, assuming the title of Overlord of the West, and slaying the evil god Torak. Some years later, unrest begins to grow in the Kingdoms of the West, culminating in several shocking personal tragedies for Garion. Once again, he and his companions must follow the strictures of yet another ancient prophecy which foretells a cataclysmic (and possibly final) battle with the Dark.
Author Bio
David Eddings
David Carroll Eddings was born in Spokane, Washington in 1931. He attended Reed College in Portland, Oregon, graduating with a B.A. in 1954. Eddings then entered the military for two years before returning to school at the University of Washington, Seattle, where he graduated with an M.A. in 1961. Holding a variety of jobs, including buyer for the Boeing Company, he eventually became a college English professor. His first book, 1982's PAWN OF PROPHECY, was the initial entry in the Belgariad series, which swelled to five volumes by the end of 1984. Eddings claims that he wrote the book in order to explore some theories about writing, centering on making as realistic a presentation as possible of an imaginary world with unlikely geography, steeped in a wholly invented theology. In 1986 he wrote his first non-fantasy novel, HIGH HUNT, before returning to the the world of the Belgariad, in GUARDIANS OF THE WEST, which began the five-volume Mallorean cycle. After a non-genre novel, THE LOSER, and an unrelated six-volume fantasy series, the Elenium, he returned again to the Belgariad in 1995's BELGARETH THE SORCERER. This book was credited to both Eddings and his wife, Leigh--they had married in 1962. At the same time, Eddings acknowledged publically that she had co-written all of the fantasy books, and subsequent reprints have included both of their names. The Eddings's work has been marked by a level of humor usually missing from fantasy epics and an extreme sense of authenticity regarding their created worlds. In 1998, they published THE RIVAN CODEX, which gathered their notes and research on the world in which the Belgariad and its sequel are set. Also containing extraneous information, such as poems and song lyrics they had written over the years to color in the world, the CODEX was further proof of their commitment to the details of this fantasy world.
