    Garion gets a shock and Ce Nedra gets a personality.

    Since I departed on this journey I noticed that The Belgariad series subtly lends itself to Chess This is evident in the titles, Pawn of Prophecy , Queen of Sorcery and so on However David Eddings never openly acknowledged the series overarching theme regarding the centuries old game He weaves a love for the game within this beautiful series inways than the titles The movement of the whole series begins to unfold just like a game of chess The first book was the game s opening, est Since I departed on this journey I noticed that The Belgariad series subtly lends itself to Chess This is evident in the titles, Pawn of Prophecy , Queen of Sorcery and so on However David Eddings never openly acknowledged the series overarching theme regarding the centuries old game He weaves a love for the game within this beautiful series inways than the titles The movement of the whole series begins to unfold just like a game of chess The first book was the game s opening, establishing Garion as a simple pawn moving inexorably towards the far side of the board The second book explained the importance of Mandorallen and Hettar, the Knights And further comparisons can be made at the reader s discretion towards other characters, and even who can be considered as players The third book establishes the centre of the battle, the pivotal moment in a chess game where both sides have an equal chance of winning and losing And now, the fourth book, Castle of Wizardry shows Garion s promotion from pawn to not a pawn Castle of Wizardry was too beautiful and complex for a small review to do it justice The pieces on the board are rallying towards the conclusion of the game, and the White Queen Ce Nedra begins her final attack against the forces of darkness The endgame is in sight Oh, and look at the title of the last book

    I love this series and I am enjoying the reread very much This is a true epic journey With that said, I find this book a bit slower than the previous three.It is mostly a setting up of the Rivan King and his betrothed The journey is put on hold as they come to claim the crown After all is said and done, Belgarion, Belgarath and Silk steal away to begin another journey After the trio leaves you follow them for a bit Then you are back with the others as they begin to gather an army You foll I love this series and I am enjoying the reread very much This is a true epic journey With that said, I find this book a bit slower than the previous three.It is mostly a setting up of the Rivan King and his betrothed The journey is put on hold as they come to claim the crown After all is said and done, Belgarion, Belgarath and Silk steal away to begin another journey After the trio leaves you follow them for a bit Then you are back with the others as they begin to gather an army You follow Ce Nedra as she gives her speeches and gathers her huge army for Belgarion They are on one journey as the trio is on another It is not full of mystery and adventure as much as the other three, but the story is well under way and you need to reach here to continue Don t get me wrong, it is still an amazing story, just not as full on as the other three But hold on, the adventure continues

    Less good than the previous ones this entire book feels a bit been there done that.However, I like the evolution of the characters I enjoy Garion and Ce Nedra, and I m looking forward to the conclusion But I don t think I ll read the Malloreon This is still like sipping hot chocolate on a cold winter day, only I feel like really this is one book in five parts, and the abrupt endings dampen my enjoyment somewhat.The entire series is a delight, and perfect for any young fantasy fan.

    This fourth installment of the Belgariad series plunges in exactly where the previous volume left off there is no exposition, no reminding the reader gently what came before Fortunately, everything is simplistic enough that even my menopausally challenged memory was able to fish out the necessary details within the first chapter, the circumstances slowly coming back to me.I have to say that Belgarion is a frustrating hero He never seems to catch on to what is happening in his own life and he e This fourth installment of the Belgariad series plunges in exactly where the previous volume left off there is no exposition, no reminding the reader gently what came before Fortunately, everything is simplistic enough that even my menopausally challenged memory was able to fish out the necessary details within the first chapter, the circumstances slowly coming back to me.I have to say that Belgarion is a frustrating hero He never seems to catch on to what is happening in his own life and he ends up surprised by things that the not necessarily astute reader has seen coming since book one I found myself a bit offended on his behalf at several points, however, as the adults in his life kept shoving him into situations that they should have been preparing him for They all could see that he was struggling and not understanding his role in things and I felt they should have beenforthcoming with information and support I do appreciate that Eddings didn t go all Lord of the Rings in this series there are no elves or orcs and the sought after Orb doesn t need to be destroyed In fact, there is another Sword in the Stone moment as Garion accepts the Orb and it acknowledges his status as heir Eddings does create a moderately interesting world, albeit a fairly shallow one When reading Tolkien, I always appreciate the fact that he knew Middle Earth inside out, had created a complex history for it and designed authentic feeling languages for all of its peoples There isn t that same feeling of depth to Edding s world, but how many people would go to the extremes of world building that Tolkien did Even the main characters are a little wooden in the Belgariad, but a few are quite entertaining I am always fond of Silk and his spying, conniving ways It was also lovely to see Lord Barak settle into acomfortable family situation Lady Polgara and Princess Ce Nedra provide some female main characters, but they rarely talk about anything except Garion Ce Nedra s relationship, such as it is Bechdel test fail Onebook to go, and I hope to read it before the end of this year Book number 190 of my science fiction and fantasy reading project

    The characters are all there are coming into their own, but otherwise there s not much to say These books must be read in order as a set of 5 I was happy that this book kept up the pace I blew through it quickly On to the final one The characters are all there are coming into their own, but otherwise there s not much to say These books must be read in order as a set of 5 I was happy that this book kept up the pace I blew through it quickly On to the final one

    3.5 stars Fourth installment of the Belgariad Not quite as good as the previous entries but still a good, solid read One final note I listened to the audiobook narrated by Cameron Beierle and he did an excellent job with the series.
