“Fabulous . . . Eddings has a marvelous storyteller style . . . exceedingly well portrayed and complex people."

"Eddings' BELGARIAD is exactly the kind of fantasy I like. It has magic, adventure, humor, mystery, and a certain delightful human insight."
- Piers Anthony on PAWN OF PROPHECY
"Absorbing. Touches all the right Fantasy bases. Warring gods, political intrigues, supernatural creatures, and appealingly human magicians."
-Publishers Weekly on QUEEN OF SORCERY
"A graceful, fluid style of storytelling rare in fantasy writing.”
- Publishers Weekly
Thank you for finally epublishing what was my first fantasy book as a teenager in the mid-eighty's!
The story is just as fresh as it was back then and can't wait for the rest of the books!
Eddings is a master
I love this series. Can’t wait for the Mallorean to come out on IBooks. I’ll snap them up and add them to my digital library. The story of Belgarion is my favorite. I’ve read this story beginning to end so many times Ive lost count. I’ll be starting again this fall.
Now that Ed’s books are becoming available in the store...
Please also add Dennis McKiernan’s complete works.
