    One thought on “Queen of Sorcery

    1. Christina on said:

      For the first half of this book, I was slightly bored and felt that it was an echo of the first one they travel, run into enemies and Silk does business, get away, travel, run into enemies and Silk does business, get away I wasn t sure that I would continue reading the series after this book because I thought the book was just okay However, something changed about halfway or into the book and now I look forward to reading the next one The routine pattern finally changed and the plot became int [...]

    2. Jim on said:

      I really enjoyed this reread Wonderfully fun story that expands the characters of the first book in a masterful way They re caricatures, but good ones Eddings doesn t take them too seriously There s a ragged old sorcerer who gives orders to the drunken king through a pirate, money grubbing spies, knights so noble brainless that they kill each other in droves for reasons they can t recall I like the humor the tragedies This is a simple epic story No high falutin language or imagery, just a simple [...]

    3. Sarah Anne on said:

      Books 1 and 2 really should have been published as one volume This is the one where their companions are almost complete and we get a lot info about what exactly is going on I ve always loved the characters in this series

    4. Suzanne on said:

      This was my gateway fantasy series, and while I have happily read hundreds of fantasy books since, the Belgariad will always have a special place in my heart.

    5. Amanda on said:

      I really really like the David Eddings books, and they were where I properly started out reading in the fantasy genre, back when I was thirteen or so I adore them and have read them time and again However, Queen of Sorcery is far from the strongest entry in the Belgariad, and this time during my re read it was very hard to prevent myself seeing the many faults I still love the whole series, but struggle with this particular book.One problem I have is the character of Garion With all the many, ma [...]

      bookslifewine r queen of sNote This is one of my favorite series I read this series, it s sequel The Mallorean, and Belgarath the Sorcerer yearly.Queen of Sorcery is the second book in The Belgariad series by David Eddings In comparison to the first book, Queen of Sorcery gives the reader a lot information and a greater incentive to continue the series One of the things I liked the most about this book is that the reader starts to get to know the side characters a lot better and a lot of the th [...]

    7. David Sarkies on said:

      I can think of much better prophecies22 June 2012 Maybe I should have discussed idea of prophecy under Pawn of Prophecy because the title of that book seems to be conducive to that discussion than this book, however I wanted my review of the Pawn of Prophecy to be a bit of an introduction to the series as a whole rather than focusing on something specific I note that the first review here indicates that the first part of the book seems to be a series of meet the enemy, escape, Silk does some bu [...]

    8. Belinda on said:

      5 stars Audiobook Garrion what did you do Notting aunt Pol, realy whe follow Old Wolf, slik, Barak and the others as they want to get de orbe back from Zeldar Garrion gets older and gets to know and about he hole story also conserning him The only one who sees him still as a little boy would be aunt Pol But she is also the one how raised him So in my oppion that is quit normal Again draws Eddings a beautiful world where you can step in and enjoy the story I would say like a 3 D film I can but [...]

    9. Stephen on said:

      4.0 stars Good sequel to Pawn of Prophecy I find myself liking the supporting cast than the main character, but this is still a fun read.

    10. Wanda on said:

      The second installment of the Belgariad and although this world certainly has some commonalities with Tolkien s Middle Earth, there are many distinctions as well Yes, there is a company of travellers on a quest for a powerful jewel, but they are not nearly as noble as LOTR characters Can you imagine Gandalf getting drunk and having a hangover on the morning of an early departure Belgarath does How about producing sweets to attract Dryads to him and stating that Dryads will do almost anything for [...]

    11. Paul on said:

      Queen of Sorcery is a step up from Pawn of Prophecy in The Belgariad but the story is concerned about telling each individual kingdom s story than telling a compelling overall narrative As much as I like fantasy that requires a band of adventurers to travel to different places, the group in The Belgariad seems to keep getting side tracked on the way Their goal is to stop a thief with a powerful stone from reaching his home territory but the group of adventurers keeps finding themselves embroil [...]

    12. Andrea on said:

      Quite an improvement over the first book While the structure of this installment is rather similar go to this place, expose some political plot, get on the road, run into trouble, repeat , the action is much exciting, and how should I put it magical Finally Eddings realized that there is to fantasy novel than just characters that can do magic There is interesting lore weaved into the plot, an exciting minor villain is introduced, and some questions about Garion s powers are finally answered T [...]

    13. H on said:

      The fun continues I only have two complaints with the series, really 1 The emotions are pretty nonexistent Like, Eddings mentions how someone feels, but he only mentions it once, so I forget about how characters are feeling a lot Like I remember at one point in this book it mentioned Garion feeling consumed with hatred for his parents murderer, and I was like, Really Oh yeah And 2 Garion is really, really, really oblivious Maybe I m just thinking so because I knew who he really is from the start [...]

    14. S James Bysouth on said:

      The most pleasant read There is no other series I find relaxing to read The prose is so gentle and invisible I can read a hundred pages at a time and it feels like twenty.Frankly this series should be popular than it is The target audience is probably YA if im honest which is probably why it s not popular Then again, Harry Potter is uber popular with adults, and I rate this much higher than HP so drawing a blank This should be popular Period Better writing than Kingkiller Cronicles Better an [...]

    15. Mindy Reads on said:

      Okay, so I really was excited to jump back into the Belgariad series and I was not disappointed At the very beginning of Queen of Sorcery you are reminded of how young and naive Gairon still is and during the course of this book you start to finally see him start to grow up a little, a though not fully I m betting this series will be a great journey in order for Gairon to grow up and discover his power This book was a little slower in the middle than Pawn of Prophecy, but it picked back up and l [...]

    16. Diane ~Firefly~ on said:

      Garion and his companions continue on their quest for the orb and pick up a Mimbrate Knight and an Imperial Princess They continue to advise the kings of the areas they pass through and avoid the Murgos This story ends with a confrontation with Salmissra.Garion starts to realize he is special and has trouble coming to terms with it and what he did to Chamdar He just wants to be an ordinary boy and isn t going to get his wish.

    17. Penny Taylor-jones on said:

      These sets of books are my best friends I have been reading them since I was 15 years old and when I want some comfort I can loose myself in another world, following the adventures and the discoveries that Reveal who Garion truly is.

    18. Nicolo Yu on said:

      Queen of Sorcery continues the Belgariad of David Eddings with this volume, the second of the series It picks where the first book, Pawn of Prophecy ended, with the group journeying to the southern kingdoms on the trail of the thief of the most important artifact of their world.The cast here increases as the group travels characters join them, apparently in fulfillment of the prophecy that is one of the themes of the Belgariad that spans the series Eddings continues to develop his characters, a [...]

    19. Mollie Clarke on said:

      While thinking of what I would write for a review of this book, I realised that whatever I wrote wouldn t do it justice The adventures of Garion are continued in this book, with him exploring many new lands and hinting at what is too become of everyone in terms of the prophecy Its rare that a book, genuinely engages me for long periods of time but this book has certainly done so, I could quite happily spend all day ready this book.

    20. Jesse on said:

      I m really enjoying rereading this series This was one of the first fantasy series I had ever read, and it paved the way for a long life of love for the genre These books are a lot of fun.I do have to say, for adult readers, I can see how these books could be a bit grulling For one thing, the plot is cliche Farm boy is proficised to save the world from a great and growing evil But first, he has to travel and learn from a group of awesome companions I m sure this sounds familiar.But the plot is n [...]

    21. Jak on said:

      Endings was my first foray into High Fantasy which would probably explain why none of the clich s riled me I ve now read plenty of stories about nameless orphans etc who turn out to be the missing bloodline to the throne who then go on to battle unimaginable except that of many a fantasy writer evil to save the world Personally I absolutely loved the Belgariad series of books and found them to be enthralling and exciting In particular I loved the characters and thought them to be some of the mos [...]

    22. Amber on said:

      I thought this book really took the series to another level The first book, Pawn of Prophecy, was good, though predictable and at time childish in my opinion Queen of Sorcery took you deeper into the magic of the world and gave you insight into the characters You also start to get subplots in this novel The first novel really seemed to have a singular plot that wasn t really clear until half way through the novel, where as this book stays true to that plot, but expands into other side archs tha [...]

    23. Jack Iles on said:

      David Eddings had such a rich imagination This instalment of arguably his greatest work is effortlessly captivating It takes the reader into a completely alien world A world packed with snake people, restless gods and children of the forest I wish I had read this as a child, because it really is one of those stories that will stay with you forever To compare an author to J.K Rowling or J.R.R Tolkien is a very dangerous thing to do But David Eddings belongs firmly up there as one of the greats of [...]

    24. Indika De Silva on said:

      The second book of the Belgariad series has much magic, character development and adventure when compared with the first novel.Several interesting characters are introduced in this book and they are quite refreshing and amusing The author has created wonderful dialogues and interactions between the main characters in such enjoyable fashion Therefore the reader feels closely related them.In my honest opinion this book is a well written sequel However I would rather spend less time writing revie [...]

    25. Hannah on said:

      Just as good as Pawn of Prophecy draws you in and makes it impossible for you to tear your eyes away with the amount of action and surprises it has in store The existing characters all grow on you, one by one, and it is particularly nice to watch the growth of the main character and the appearance of new ones.

    26. C.E. Murphy on said:

      There s nothing like re reading old favorites and finding out they still hold up QUEEN OF SORCERY made me laugh out loud than once, and honestly, I m astonished at the depth of description in these books I didn t remember the scenery at all, but the descriptions are really quite beautiful.And I still love Silk 3

    27. Alan Warenski on said:

      Instead of traveling to like 5 places, this book they travel to like 8 That many cities to blend in to my head and not be remembered My rating is a 2.5 for this one because a few exciting things happen in this book.

    28. Rebecca on said:

      Another fun read I love Garion being a confused and angsty teenage boy Silk being referred to as a bad man in a complimentary manner does get a bit tiresome after the third time however Overall of course I still love them and I look forward to re reading the next one

    29. Sandra on said:

      In my opinion, 2.5 stars That means it was slightly better than the first one But still few things happened.
