The first title in a magnificent fantasy epic set against a history of seven thousand years of the struggles of Gods and Kings and men of fate and a prophecy that must be fulfilled
David Eddings (1931-2009) published his first novel, High Hunt, in 1973, before turning to the field of fantasy with the Belgariad, soon followed by the Malloreon. Born in Spokane, Washington, and raised in the Puget Sound area north of Seattle, he received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Reed College in Portland, Oregon, in 1954, and a master of arts degree from the University of Washington in 1961. He served in the US Army, worked as a buyer for the Boeing Company, and was both a grocery clerk and a college English teacher. He lived in Nevada until his death, at the age of 77.
"A classic coming-of-age epic ... The Belgariad will always have a place of honor on my bookshelves" -- Christopher Paolini "Fun, exciting, intriguing fantasy in which the characters are as important as the quest and magical elements ... immerse yourself and enjoy!" -- Darren Shan "Fabulous" -- Anne McCaffrey
