The different author attribution of this polgars Belgarath the Sorcerer apparently reflects not a change in how David Eddings’ books are written, but is more an overdue acknowledgement.
A relatively young Polgara spent many years in the Arendish duchy of Vo Wacune, where she mitigated the Arendish civil wars. A magnificent epic fantasy novel that is an absorbing read, which combines a complex plot with remarkable imagination. The Belgariad Series and the Mallorean Series are hands down one of the best science fiction series ever written. Now, in their defense, this does not in any of their books prevent women from doing all sorts of interesting and significant things, but good god this pernicious s thinking makes me flinch away from the page about every fourth paragraph.
Their mother was a shape-shifting wolf at birth; she was distressed that her human babies would be born deficient in lupine instinct, and therefore educated them telepathically prior to parturition. Her continued defiance both confused and infuriated him. The fictional character of Polgara is the many generations removed aunt of Belgarion and the daughter of Belgarath.

Over the years, she maintained a relationship with the descendants of Beldaran and Riva that would eventually become her life’s work. David Eddings died on June 2, at the age of I love the world that it is set in; it is so well developed even if it is a bit static, no culture stays the same for years and I appreciated getting Polgara’s adventures that rounded out Belgarath’s.
Yes it’s easy for someone who has lived a long time to become very ingrained in their thinking but she’s done so much stuff and with wolves a lot of the time the female is the leader.
If a male character spoke about women the way Polgara spoke about men I wouldn’t have finished the book 20 years ago. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.
