Queen of Sorcery (The Belgariad #2) - David Eddings7.34

Mythopoeic Fantasy Award nominee 1983.


Legends told of how the evil God Torak had coveted the power of the Orb of Aldur, until defeated in a final baffle. But prophecy spoke of a time when he would awake and again seek dominance over all the world. Now the Orb had been stolen by a priest of Torak, and that time was at hand.

The master Sorcerer Belgarath and his daughter Polgara the arch-Sorceress were on the trail of the Orb, seeking to regain it before the final disaster. And with them went Garion, a simple farm boy only months before, but now the focus of the struggle. He had never believed in sorcery and wanted no part of it. Yet with every league they traveled, the power grew in him, forcing him to acts of wizardry he could not accept.

This continues the magnificent epic of The Belgariad, begun in Pawn of Prophecy, set among strange lands against a background of a war of men, Kings, and Gods that had spanned seven thousand years – a novel of strange fate and a prophecy that must come true!
