Story Rating: ****
Cover Rating: A
So, this book is a companion to The Belgariad and The Malloreon series, to which Belgarath the Sorcerer plays a vital role. It’s essentially a biography, really, but includes quite a bit of adventures of it’s own – independent of the ones going on in the other two series.
The book, which is quite long, carefully and (I believe) accurately describes the life of a man who is thousands of years old. It is realistic, stays true to the character, and is a great read for anyone either obsessed with the Belgariad/Malloreon series or who enjoy a deeper look into dynamic characters.
The cover is eye-catching and offers a highly accurate idea of what the reader will find inside it’s pages.
