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. . .
From the Publisher:
An omnibus edition containing the first three novels in the best-selling fantasy series, The Malloreon, follows the adventures and exploits of Garion and his companions in Guardians of the West, King of the Murgos, and Demon Lord of Karanda.
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. This omnibus edition collects the first three titles in the series: GUARDIANS OF THE WEST, KING OF THE MURGOS, and DEMON LORD OF KARANDA. In the Belgariad, Garion, a budding sorcerer, fulfilled a prophecy by reclaiming the throne to the kingdom of Riva and slaying the evil god Torak. Unfortunately for Garion, his prophecy-fulfilling days are not yet over. When a sinister woman called Zandramas abducts Garion's infant son, Prince Geran, Garion and his companions must once again travel the world in preparation for an inevitable confrontation with the Dark, and, by so doing, heal a division in the universe that has existed since time began.
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.
