A-Z Of Fictional Characters

30–34: The Malloreon

The richer, more mature sequel series to The Belgariad. The world becomes more nuanced, old enemies more human. The plot is slightly contrived, given how much the Event of the Belgariad was built up to be the ultimate decider, but I think Eddings manages it reasonably well. 430 more words

14–18: The Belgariad

No shame. One of the best fantasy series out there, fun and funny. Eddings isn’t really a prose stylist of the calibre of some adventure writers, but he has his moments, and he more than makes up for it with vivid characterisation, some hilarious interactions (all his characters seem to share a sort of acerbic sense of dry humour to a greater or lesser extent), and the snarkiest Voice of Destiny you ever met. 201 more words
