Belgarath The Sorcerer

Authors: David Eddings, Leigh Eddings

Publisher: HarperCollins (1996)

The life story of Belgarath the Sorcerer: his own account of the great struggle that went before the Belgariad and the Malloreon, when gods still walked the land. Here is the full epic story of Belgarath, the great sorcerer, learned in the Will and the Word, on whom the fate of the world depends. Only Belgarath can tell of those near-forgotten times when gods still walked the land: he is the Ancient One, the Old Wolf, his god Aldur's first and most-favoured disciple. Using powers learned over the centuries Belgarath himself records the story of conflict between two mortally opposed Destinies that split the world asunder. A hugely entertaining work of great daring, wit, grandeur and excitement that confirms the role of Belgarath the Sorcerer as one of the mightiest fantasy creations of the century.

Publisher: Harper Voyager (2006)

The Dreamers are children teetering on the brink of divinity. They have the power to change the world with their dreams. The Elder Gods have defeated the Vlagh twice – with the aid of the Dreamers and the mysterious Treasured One who seems, worryingly, to be controlling them – but the unspeakable Creature of the Wasteland is on the fast track to world domination as the time approaches for the Younger Gods to take their place. Now all the varied resources of the domains of the Gods are marshalled to bring a halt to the spread of evil. But there is pestilence and skirmishing, and suddenly the balance of power shifts. The Ruler of the Wasteland has infiltrated another domain of the Gods, the land of short summers, where bison and deer roam. There the strange and marvellous crystal gorge, which can be no natural formation of rock, is destined to become a battleground of great beauty and great terror. The enemy is closer to knowing the secrets of the Treasured One and the Dreamers are in grave danger of delivering a nightmare to the world of the Elder Gods. Book Three of a four-part series.
