A magnificent epic set against a history of seven thousand years of the struggles of Gods and Kings and men - of strange lands and events - of fate and a prophecy that must be fulfilled! THE BELGARIAD
Long ago, so the Storyteller claimed, the evil God Torak sought dominion and drove men and Gods to war. But Belgarath the Sorcerer led men to reclaim the Orb that protected men of the West. So long as it lay at Riva, the prophecy went, men would be safe.
But that was only a story, and Garion did not believe in magic dooms, even though the dark man without a shadow had haunted him for years. Brought up on a quiet farm by his Aunt Pol, how could he know that the Apostate planned to wake dread Torak, or that he would be led on a quest of unparalleled magic and danger by those he loved - but did not know? For a while his dreams of innocence were safe, untroubled by knowledge of his strange heritage. For a little while... THUS BEGINS BOOK ONE OF THE BELGARIAD'
Good book but silly typos
Good fantasy book, light mystery. Publisher needs to fix numerous typos
Typo and textual error warning!!
I’m so glad iBooks is finally offering the Belgariad, but fair warning that this digital version has the most typos and textual errors of any book I have ever purchased. There’s a mistake almost every page which occasionally makes it almost unreadable. I love this series enough to persevere through it but if you’ve never read it before, don’t download this digital version. Wait for a clean copy so you give it the love it deserves
