Leigh Eddings. She soars above a world of warriors, kings, and priests. The daughter of Belgarath and the shape-shifter Poledra, she has fought wars, plotted palace coups, and worked her powerful magic for three thousand years. Now, Polgara looks back at her magnificent life, in this fitting crown jewel to the saga that is the Eddings' Belgariad and Mallorean cycles. Her hair streaked wh She soars above a world of warriors, kings, and priests. Her hair streaked white by her father's first touch, her mind guided by a mother she will not see again for centuries, Polgara begins life in her Uncle Beldin's tower, and in the prehistorical, magical Tree that stands in the middle of the Vale.

There, she first learns the reaches of her powers. There she assumes the bird shapes that will serve her on her adventures. And there she starts on the path toward her destiny as Duchess of Erat, shepherdess of the cause of good, adversary of Torak the One-Eyed Dragon God, and guardian of the world's last, best hope: the heir to the Rivan throne.

Here is the legendary life story of a woman of wit, passion, and complex emotions, a woman born of two majestic parents who could not have been more unlike one another. Ordained to make peace and make war, to gain love and lose love, Polgara lives out her family's rich prophecy in the ceaseless struggle between the Light and the Dark. Polgara is the epic culmination of a magnificent saga, and a fitting farewell to a world which, once experienced, will never be forgotten.

Can this be read as a stand-alone? My library only has this one book by David Eddings. Katie I just listened to this on Audible because it happened to be 2-for-1, having never read anything by this author before.

I loved it! I think, however, …more I just listened to this on Audible because it happened to be 2-for-1, having never read anything by this author before. I think, however, at times I kept thinking it would have been better if I'd read the Belgareth one first, as the narrator refers to it quite a lot!

There's a big piece of the plot that I don't quite understand, and it almost fizzles out at the end, because I think the narrator assumes prior knowledge!

That said, I still gave it four stars and I absolutely loved it, even though it's not at all the kind of thing I usually read. I usually struggle with anything over pages.

Start your review of Polgara the Sorceress. Oh, Polgara. Ten books of characterization completely undercut in this explosion of sexist twaddle. Depressingly, I think it's a better book in a lot of ways than Belgarath the Sorcerer - the material is largely new and entertaining and, with the exception of the almost word-for-word repeat of the Vo Mimbre section, is paced fairly well.

But it's got two big problems that I can't overlook. The sexism. This is the Eddings' chance to expound at appalling length their various opinions about the ha Oh, Polgara. This is the Eddings' chance to expound at appalling length their various opinions about the hard-wired differences between men and women, leading women to be conniving, emotional, good in the kitchen and with children, completely irrational in love, and made for making babies.

Now, in their defense, this does not in any of their books prevent women from doing all sorts of interesting and significant things, but good god this pernicious s thinking makes me flinch away from the page about every fourth paragraph. The voice. This would have been the perfect opportunity to really develop Polgara's distinct voice - she's something of a restrained and mysterious figure throughout the books-with-plots, and her perspective should be unique. Instead, she sounds exactly like Belgarath throughout.

Her audience-directed asides are even more irritating, if possible, but that's about the only distinguishing factor - except, of course, the frequent remarks about the differences between men and women.

Not a book I would recommend to anyone, really. The amusing Arendish political escapades do not make up for the serious commitment to eyerolling required.

Would have been the perfect ending to the series had he just not opened up the speculations about who Wolf really is at the end, but I guess nothings perfect. Especially since there ain't no more Garion stories coming to clear that up. That upset me quite a bit. But other than that the book was excellent. When I first started reading the Belgariad I thought Polgara was extremely dry and I couldn't understand everyone's An amazing companion to Belgarath the Sorcerer.

When I first started reading the Belgariad I thought Polgara was extremely dry and I couldn't understand everyone's affection for her, she just didn't seem like the mothering type of figure to me that they were portraying her as. Of course, by the end of th Belgariad I'd come around, but THIS book really explains so much more about Polgara and why she is the way she is, I really fell in love with it.

May 30, Charles rated it it was ok Shelves: sf. Hey, remember all the cool stuff? It turns out the wolf did it all. Also, have you ever noticed that men and women are different? Jan 23, Bettie rated it really liked it. View 1 comment. A magnificent epic fantasy novel that is an absorbing read, which combines a complex plot with remarkable imagination. David and Leigh Eddings have triumphed again with this spectacular novel, to add to your collection of original fantasy works by masterful writers.

No one can compare within modern fantasy writing like Eddings, whose distinctive style and unique flair is second to none and which is at the top with all the greatest writers of this genre.

This is the story of the Queen of truth, love, rage and destiny and which within the first few pages will take you on the most astonishing fantastical journey into the vale of Aldur. Polgara is not only a Sorceress but who chose a very different life for herself than the expected one, as she chose love for Durnik over money and material luxury.

Evil is rising once more from the city of endless night and as the truth is disclosed the story of Wizardry and politics, doom and evil, love and magic are brought into the light. But as darkness falls so will too the luck and love that Polgara possess which have up until now saved the world… This has to be the crowning achievement of the greatest fantasy epic ever, where once again David and Leigh display the scope of imagination, humor and sheer depth of storytelling power which has made this series so popular for fantasy lovers in modern times.

This is a great addition to the story told with Polgara's usual dry wit, cutting sarcasm and superb observations.

Again it has the feel of fireside story telling, although since it is Pol it should be more of stove side story telling given her love of cooking and her need to feed people I swear sh This is a great addition to the story told with Polgara's usual dry wit, cutting sarcasm and superb observations.

Again it has the feel of fireside story telling, although since it is Pol it should be more of stove side story telling given her love of cooking and her need to feed people I swear she has some Welsh blood in her! As with Belgarath, there is plenty of action as well as the more human aspects of the story to keep things ticking over and plenty of the behind the scenes stuff that the main series has missed. Jan 27, Lurple rated it it was ok.

As a teenager I was pretty fond of David Edding's books, but they don't hold up well after time. Eddings has a way of writing the same story sometimes with different names over and over, and this book is no real exception. Jul 23, Jade Kerrion rated it it was amazing. By the last book in the series, Eddings's easy style and insider jokes settles on readers like a comfortable and worn cloak.
