    1. David Eddings was an American author who wrote several best selling series of epic fantasy novels David Eddings wife, Leigh Eddings, was an uncredited co author on many of his early books, but he had later acknowledged that she contributed to them all.David Eddings first books which were general fiction sold moderately well He later switched to writing epic fantasy, a field in which he achieved great success In a recent interview with sffworld, he said I don t take orders from readers On January 26, 2007 it was reported that Eddings accidentally burned about a quarter of his office, next door to his house, along with his Excalibur sports car, and the original manuscripts for most of his novels He was flushing the fuel tank of the car with water when he lit a piece of paper and threw into the puddle to test if it was still flammable.On February 28, 2007, David Eddings wife, Leigh Eddings born Judith Leigh Schall , died following a series of strokes She was 69.David Eddings died on June 2, 2009 at the age of 77.

    2. "I like nice, simple situations and nice, easy solutions," said Belgarath."Good and Evil?" Durnik suggested."That's a difficult one, Durnik. I prefer 'them and us.' That clears away all the excess baggage and allows you to get right down to cases."I want a bracelet that says "What Would Belgarath Do?"

    3. Yet again I profess my love for all things Belgariad and Mallorean.And yet again I'm struck by the unfairness(?)/casual Misogyny(?) in this beloved series. 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 sicknessbut they act like her fucking brain was eaten instead.Silk drinks himself into insensibility whenever he ha [...]

    4. King of the Murgos is the second book in The Malloreon by David Eddings. The quest is under way! The Prophecy has clearly given everyone their instructions. (view spoiler)[Garion's task is to track down Zandramas and rescue his son while Belgarath must seek the final meeting place where the choice will be made in the various Mysteries. (hide spoiler)] Guided by the Orb, the party heads south first through the swamps of Nyssa and then on into the lands of the Murgos. The trip is quite perilous as [...]

    5. 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 was 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 clu [...]

    6. Action, adventure, magic, and danger all make their way into this unforgettable addition to Eddings’ series. Phenomenal descriptions and world building combine throughout as I was drawn fully into the plot that wouldn’t let go.I love the way that this cast of characters grows and changes throughout. Ce’Nedra’s less whiney attitude made her easier to swallow here, yet she does still seem quite childish for a queen. Eddings makes the change in personality easy to understand based on circum [...]

    7. Nostalgia made this a four star read. It should probably be three star. 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, with her holier than thou attitude, and I don't that ever went away again.In tru [...]

    8. I remember when I fist read this series, years and years ago, and how much I loved it them. I am glad that that has not changed. There are some things I wish were done differently, the stereotypical gender roles for one. But this is a product of different time and you have to go with it. Once you get over this, it is a great series.

    9. Originally posted on Once Upon a Bookcase.In King of the Murgos by David Eddings, the second book in the Malloreon, Garion and his friends' quest to find find his abducted son - and the final meeting between the Child of Light and the Child or Dark, as foretold by the prophecies - finally begins. And, oooh, it's still just as exciting as it was the first time I read it!In the first book, Guardians of the West, we learnt about Harakan, an underling of Urvon, a former disciple of Torak, who had ma [...]

    10. An unnecessary sequel22 July 2012 It looks as if a few people have noted that this series is pretty much a re-hash of the earlier series, with the same people just different places and a different villain. Okay, the object that was stolen is also different, but other than that it seems that Eddings simply took the script that he used for the Belgariad, made some slight changes, and made it the Mallorean. I gather that here they must get to the 'Place that is No More' which is always interesting [...]

    11. It is always interesting for me to read through the David Eddings novels I have and see how his focus shifted over the course of sixteen books encompassing the two pentalogies, the Belgariad, and Malloreon, and the Elenium and Tamuli trilogies.The Belgariad series deals with Garion's coming of age story woven in with a dualist plot that sort of took a back seat to the main story, even though it *was* the main story. In this current series, Garion has come into his own and Eddings was free to foc [...]

    12. With Lord of the Rings under my belt, I was hungry for more of this 'fantasy' thing I'd discovered. Enter the Belgariad. I consumed the two five-book series in a few months, getting in trouble in school for reading when I should have been paying attention (I either didn't care or had already done the homework for whatever it was they were teaching while they were teaching how to do it).When complete, I read the whole series again in half the time. Then again in half that. The half-lives continue [...]

    13. I’m in the process of re-reading the Mallorean series after nearly thirty years and I realise that my tastes have changed over the intervening years.This was an enjoyable read and I still find it refreshing to read an epic fantasy that concentrates on the story. However, I think reading numerous more modern ‘Urban Fantasies’ has made me more enamoured of the decisive ‘kickass’ hero/heroine, who doesn’t put up with any nonsense.Sometimes I didn’t understand what this group were doin [...]

    14. What makes an Eddings novel so great?Is it his wonderfull fantasyland which we get to explore in great detail? His rich, detailed background history? His engaging story?Possibly, but for me there is one thing that sticks out: his characters. These people are amazing and just can't get enough of them. The dialogues are amazing, with sarcasm dripping off the pages. I went from laughter to tears and back again. I LOVE this series. It proves that you do not need to switch to 63 different point of vi [...]

    15. Ook al is dit in feite het 7e boek in een serie van 10, er gebeuren nog steeds nieuwe dingen. Nieuwe landen, nieuwe gebruiken. Je zou verwachten dat het allemaal wat eentonig begint te worden, maar daar heb ik nog niet echt last van. Tuurlijk, net is steeds weer net aan dat ze het redden, en hier en daar wat toevalligheidjes, maar daar stoor ik me totaal niet aan. Deze profetie is ook mysterieuzer dan de vorige, ik heb geen idee wie er uiteindelijk overblijven en waar de profetie tot uiting gaat [...]

    16. Laugh-out-loud funny and endearing new characters, like the King of the Murgos himself. Garion has become an increasingly strong ruler, determined and decisive, and the developments in him and the rest of the cast adds to the enjoyment of the book. Don't let anyone tell you that the first series is better; this one is just as good, if not better! More action and excitement and faster pacing, Eddings keeps his readers turning the pages as fast as possible to find out the next part.

    17. There are definitely more flaws in the plot - it's looser and not as well constructed as the Belgariad, but I don't care! I'm enjoying these stories far too much to be bothered about occasional illogical behaviour by the protagonists.Frankly, I don't know how I'm going to cope when I finish the Malloreon, David Eddings epics have become an integral part of my life a chapter or two with every meal and something to look forward to at the end of a humdrum workday :)

    18. This is more of a comfort read these days. Like an old pair of shoes or a favorite blanket. I have read most of the Eddings' books 3-4 times, so their voice, their humor, the characters are a familiar joy. (I use the plural because while most of the books are published under David's name, it is confessed in one of their later novels that his wife Leigh has been coauthor of most of his works.)

    19. This book is very different to the first one of the series. With a much faster pace this book has some excellent twists and turns in it. This book will make your ideas of certain people change in dramatic ways!

    20. After a bit of a stinker in book one it's back to a more classic Eddings adventure in book two. It was good and left a decent ending to transition to book three nicely.

    21. Good. Though, I will admit, it's my love of the characters as much as anything that contributes to my enjoyment of The Malloreon.

    22. I've continued reading this series, largely out of a sense of duty and a desire for completion, but I've frequently been underwhelmed by Eddings' work. The storytelling has often felt mundane and/or the world-building simply not as deep and rich as other epic fantasies of the same era (e.g. Tad Williams). Thus, King of the Murgos was a pleasant surprise. It is significantly more entertaining than the previous installment and it may be the best in the entire series to date (counting back to the T [...]

    23. Más de lo mismo, aventuras aventuras aventuras. Lástima no haberme leído esta saga de niñata, la habría disfrutado más de lo que lo estoy haciendo ahora. Por cierto que YLA muy bien el haber hecho desaparecer algunos personajes en este libro, pensaba que los iba a echar más de menos. Lo que sí tengo claro con esta saga es que ciertos personajes siempre se me quedan en la memoria, son grandiosos.

    24. Full review here:jamesgenrebooks/2Gah. I know the last 3 books are more fun, but I'd forgotten how badly the first two drag.

    25. They are still looking for his son. whelp.Not a bad story though I guess I'll keep reading through this series, even though I find myself skimming through a lot of padded dialog >.>I still haven't decided if I like this series or not. lol.

    26. This had a far more compelling narrative than book 1, with some good new characters and revelations. Plus a great cliff-hanger ending.
