Yet again I profess my love for all things Belgariad and Mallorean. And yet again I’m struck by the unfairness? One of the big personal issues that pop up in this book is Silk’s parents. Silk’s mom was “the most beautiful woman of her generation” until a pestilence came through the town. She was struck blind and horribly disfigured by the sickness Silk drinks himself into insensibility whenever he Yet again I profess my love for all things Belgariad and Mallorean.
It disfigures its victims horribly. My mother was blinded by its effects, fortunately. Our father stayed by her side for the rest of his life and never once gave any hint about what he saw when he looked at her. Did she grow devil horns?? Cause I don’t understand how someone you love becoming ugly and staying with them is called brave.
Why is she being ugly such a big deal??? Myrgos gives me the impression that the only worth they saw in Silk’s mother was her edddings. Which is so terribly sad. Almost shyly they looked at each other and then, unable to hold it in, they began to laugh.
The Murgo captain changed his plans almost as soon as she began to speak to him. Then he climbed the mainmast and spent the rest of the morning with the lookout in the wildly swaying crow’s nest high aloft. View all 9 comments.

In this journey, our heroes meet many adventures and many interesting people, giving the writer the chance to make the story more exciting and add even more humorous dialogues.
The latter, of course, is a key feature of this and the previous series, but in this book, I have the feeling that this humor is particularly caustic and much more deals with situations of the real world. The problem, however, is that several times the writer overdones it by giving the book an excessively light tone.
Of course this lightness and non-seriousness is the great virtue of the whole series, but it would be better if there was some restraint. Of course this does not change the fact that this is a very entertaining reading that makes you enjoy your time, so what I expected to find in this second part I found it and I keep on mudgos. The quest is under way! The Prophecy has clearly given everyone edsings instructions. The trip is quite perilous as the party must travel through a war zone as well as dodging traps set by the enemy.
This is a slightly slower installment, though due more to all the travel involved rather than the need to set the stage. There are two big highlights in this book for me. The first is when the eddinvs finally makes it to Cthol Murgos.
King Of The Murgos : (Malloreon 2)
I quite enjoyed going through an area of the world not visited before. It adds nicely to the world building and I wish there was more of it. And the Murgo King is such a fun character! The second part is the character banter.
Especially between Silk and Liselle. I think it’s become an unspoken contest to see which can best eachother’s cleverness.
This reread is reminding me how I’ve missed reading medieval-based fantasy. I read a lot of other sub-genres this year. It feels good to go back to my fantasy reading roots. Jun 14, Lel rated it liked it. As much as I love this series overall I felt that in this book not much really happened.

The company seem to be just travelling throughout their world in search of Gerion but not getting any closer or much actually happening in the book. There is a few action scenes in the book that make it interesting but I just can’t help but feel it wddings a bit of a time gap filling book. That being said the characters more than make up for it.

I love the budding relationship between Silk and Velvet, hes so clueless bless him. I love the way eddingx this cast of characters grows and changes throughout. Eddings makes the change in personality easy to understand based on circumstance.

I love this series so hard from childhood that it becomes very difficult to read it objectively. There are many niggles. This was when I started giving some scenes the side eye – some of the relationships between the men and the women, the power plays and the idea that they were so different from each other. Polgara started to piss me right off, eddingz her holier than thou attitude, and I don’t that ever went away again.
In tru Nostalgia made this a four star read. In truth, probably a series that shouldn’t be read past eddjngs sixteen years of age, but still lots to love.

In the first book, Guardians of the West, we learnt about Harakan, an underling of Urvon, a former disciple of Torak, who had managed to take control of the Bear-cult and scheme to murder Garion’s wife Ce’Nedra and kill their son Geran – not abduct, that had Garion and the Alorn armies going after the Bear-cult. In this book, we learn about Naradas, an Angarak with only white for irides. We do not yet know who he is working for, but he has been causing all kinds of trouble in the West, throwing obstacles in Garion and his friends’ path.
Still, they manage mhrgos make it to Cthol Murgos under the guise of slavers, when they are captured by the Dagashi, highly trained Murgo assassins, who have a task for a group of slavers – to go to Rak Hagga by ship, including another person in their party. I loved this book!
I loved meeting Urgit again, and having the group of friends get to know him and help him as a King.
