this is a book to read AFTER you have read the Belgariad and the Mallorean series, followed by Belgarath the Scorcerer, otherwise is won't make any sense. once you've finished reading Polgara the Sorceress, you will find the entire story line has been filled out to your satisfaction. the characters in these stories are so familiar and believable - they remind me of people i know!

i've been reading the paper versions of these stories every winter for the past 16 years now and it's a bit like visiting old friends. the story touches my heart in many different ways as i journey through this epic tale. at times i cry and laugh, i'm afraid and wild with delight, but at the end i'm filled with warmth and love.

i'm thrilled to now have the kindle version of these magnificent books, NOW i can pack the entire series whenever we travel and still fit some clothes in my suitcase!

"Polgara the sorceress" is a book that can be liked by everybody that enjoys reading an engaging fantasy book, but will only be fully appreciated by those who have already read "The Belgariad", "The Malloreon" and "Belgarath the sorcerer" (yes, in that order).

The reason for that emphatic statement is simple: this book is the autobiography of Polgara, one of the main characters in those books. As such, "Polgara the sorceress" contains spoilers that could dim your enjoyment of the previously mentioned books. And believe me, "The Belgariad", "The Malloreon" and "Belgarath the sorcerer" are so wonderful that they fully deserve all the time that you need to read them first :)

"The Belgariad" and "The Malloreon" tell the story of a group of friends in a dangerous and magical quest, while "Belgarath the sorcerer" recounts the same story from the point of view of one of the main characters, who has the benefit of being almost immortal, thus having a thoroughly different perspective regarding the events that preceded that quest and everybody involved in it.

"Polgara the sorceress" is nothing less than a direct consequence of "Belgarath the sorcerer". Polgara is Belgarath's daughter, a sorceress and the guardian of the Rivan line. She didn't exactly agree with her father's version of what happened, and told her friends so. Despite that, Polgara wouldn't have gone so far as to write her own autobiography is Ce'Nedra (spurred by curiosity) hadn't plotted for her to do so.

Truth to be told, I specially enjoyed Polgara's take on what happened, and how she explained many things that Belgarath hadn't considered important. Also, I think that this book allows the readers to understand better Polgara's role in the preparation of the "Events", and how she became "Lady Polgara" and "Duchess of Erat".

In my opinion, this is a book that the fans of "The Belgariad" and "The Malloreon" will thoroughly enjoy. I always liked Polgara, and considered her to be a very likeable albeit perhaps overly mysterious character. I really enjoyed reading about her life, and I bet you will too. Recommended!

I loved it! It gives you a deeper understanding of what was going on. The relationship between Belgarath and Polgara is complicated to say the least. But they love each other more that life itself. It is best that you read The Belgariad series and The Malloreon, or you will not understand all the dynamics. I also suggest that you read Belgarath first after the two series. It is interesting to see how a country boy is thrown into events that not only affect his world but worlds that he doesn’t even know about. No pressure right?.. I firmly recommend this series. They are easy to pick up but so so hard to put down.

While I have enjoyed the Belgarion and Malloreon sagas, I have to admit that Polgara is the weakest of all the books so far, (including Belgarath). Still, while the plot development is based on the previous 13 books, and is therefore not an issue, I did find some of the background information to be a little sketchy, and, of course, Polgara's character is terminally irritating. Too bad she has so much power that no one but her father can tell her so with impunity.

The Belgeriad and Mallorean series are my favorite pieces of fantasy literature - I've read them a couple times, and they are always super enjoyable, and always force me to stay up late reading them because I can't stop, even though I know what's going to happen.
This book (and Belgarath) is a wonderful cap to the whole series, going all way back in time. Although much of it is a repeat of what was in the other books, this is wonderful reading since it is all from the perspective of Polgara, daughter of Belgarath, alive the last 5,000 years. Polgara offers many, many new insights to the events of the books. It's fascinating: construct a whole series with the omniscient narrator, and then write two more books going over the whole thing again, but from the point of views of two characters in the series. Surprisingly, it not only works, it works well, and it's quite compelling reading. And Eddings writes convincingly enough to make one think it really *is* Polgara who has written this.
Absolutely excellent reading, but of course, you really do have to read the first ten books first. And I can't recommend this series enough. Certainly the best multi-volume fantasy series that has come out (and yes, I am apostate by regarding this higher than Lord of the Rings, but so be it).

It fills in a lot of historical information that is referred to in the Belgariad.
Alas Amazon is not selling the Belgariad as Kindle books while the other series are available in Kindle, a serious omission. I am now forced to get my paper books of the shell to read the Belgariad.
