The fictional character of Polgara is the many generations removed aunt of Belgarion and the daughter of Belgarath. Their mother was a shape-shifting wolf at birth; she was distressed that her human babies would be born deficient in lupine instinct, and eddingss educated them telepathically prior to parturition. Beldaran was chosen, as indeed this was her role in the ongoining War of Destinies.
Fun to read about Polgara. Polgara bitterly resented the “loss” of her sister, who had been the center of her life, but the shared loss eventually brought father and daughter closer together, and Polgara was presented for the first time as beautiful Polgara the Sorceress. I really felt myself drawn into this story and although it dragged ever so slightly a couple of times, it was never for long.

I found myself falling in love with all the new characters throughout the story, however. The Belgariad Series and the Mallorean Series wddings hands down one of the best science fiction series ever written.

Menoa rated it it was amazing May 31, For many years, Polgara hated her father. Polgara the Sorceress is the second prequel to the Belgariad and Malloreon series. 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.
This was in part because her mother’s wolf instincts could not understand his apparent abandonment during her pregnancy, and sensitive Polgara had picked up on this.
She and she alone is the ‘grown up’ in the room and everyone else is under her thumb or else. It may be because of the women’s perspective thing, I don’t know. It’s quite action-packed, in a way, so each time I started feeling like nothing much was happening, something did happen that had me on the edge of my seat again.

When the Rivan King Beldaran’s descendant was assassinated, Polgara became the guardian of a secret line of surviving heirs, incognito in Sendaria and its neighboring domains.
The strong point of this series was the adventure, not the characterization nor the witty dialogue which Eddings seemed to imagine he was writing so I see no need to read this unless you are a Belgariad completist. Due to different publishing standards, the large text was often divided for international markets. LibraryThing recommendations and tag cloud.
So don’t read it for the plot, but for the dialogue.

For many years, Polgara resented her father’s long absence from her own upbringing; and when Belgarath resumed care of his daughters, Beldaran was quick to forgive popgara but Polgara often fled to the Tree at the center of the Vale of Aldur, where she learned to speak to birds and ultimately mastered the Will and the Word. Quite frankly, you are not going to get anything from this book that Eddings has not already told countless times in the earlier books of the Belgarion world.

If you are not already sick and tired of Eddings’s fantasy and the Belgarion tales, you definitely will be after Polgara the Sorceress. Men are all little boys that never grow up and have to be guided by the wiser and more mature women. Suffered through “Belgarath the Sorcerer” despite it being the extended version of history we already knew.
