Bestselling authors David and Leigh Eddings welcome
readers back to the time before The Belgariad and The Malloreon series.
Join them as they chronicle that fateful conflict between two mortally
opposed Destinies, in a monumental war of men and kings and Gods.
When the world was young and Gods still walked among their mortal children, a headstrong orphan boy set out to explore the world. Thus began the extraordinary adventures that would mold that youthful vagabond into a man, and the man into the finely honed instrument of Prophecy known to all the world as Belgarath the Sorcerer.
Then came the dark day when the Dark God Torak split the world asunder, and the God Aldur and his disciples began their monumental labor to set Desti aright. Foremost among their number was Belgarath. His ceaseless devotion was foredoomed to cost him that which he held most dear – even as his loyal service would extend through echoing centuries of loss, of struggle, and of ultimate triumph.
David Eddings (1931–2009) was an American author. Eddings' first books were general fiction and sold moderately. He later switched to writing epic fantasy novels and achieved best-selling status. David Eddings' wife, Leigh Eddings (1937–2007), is uncredited as co-author on many of his early books, but he later acknowledged that she contributed to them all.
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 United States Army, worked as a buyer for the Boeing Company, and was also a grocery clerk and a college English teacher.
