Guardians of the West by David Eddings

Book Description

Warned by the prophecy that a new and greater danger threatens the lands of the west, Garion, Belgarath and Polgara must begin another quest to save the lands from great evil. Three years have passed since Garion's killing of the evil god Torak and his marriage to Ce'Nedra. He is now Overlord of the West, slowly learning how to cope with the duties of a king and to overcome the difficulties within his marriage. When the Orb of Aldur warns Garion to 'Beware Zandramas!' the Voice of Prophecy reveals that somewhere in the unknown land of the East the Dark Prophecy still exists and that great new dangers threaten. While Belgarath and Garion seek to uncover the nature of this threat, Garion's baby son is kidnapped. All evidence points to the loathsome Bear-cult, which has gained power once more, and Garion leads an army bent on its destruction. But there are even more sinister forces at work, and Garion and his followers must look towards the malign and mysterious evil of Zandramas. Their quest must begin again. THUS BEGINS BOOK ONE OF THE MALLOREON.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » Eddings' hard-over debut is the first of a new sword & sorcery series and a sequel to his five-part paperback Belgariad. Faithful readers will recall that, at the end of the Belgariad, King Garion, armed with the prophetic Orb of Aldur, slew the evil god Torak. And so everyone settled down to live happily ever after, right? Wrong. After several idyllic years, marred only by a marital tiff or two, Garion and the boy Errand (he is beginning to display strange new powers of sorcery) are contacted by the Orb and told to "Beware Zandramas!" Who or what is Zandramas? Nobody knows, but evidently it's bad news, since several of Garion's prophetic books hint at evils still to come. Eventually, after much ballyhoo, Zandramas emerges as a mysterious, evil sorcerer of vast power; he instructs his minions, fanatic Bear-cultists, to kidnap Garion's infant son. Thus, things are shaping up for another prolonged struggle among men, kings, sorcerers, gods, evildoers, Orbs, and whatnots, with - you guessed it - the fate of the universe at stake. All this is shamelessly padded out to 460 pages with recaps, explanations, reminders, hints, Boy Scout-ish doings, cute domestic scenes, and gosh-wow dialogue. Lots of huffing-puffing stage-setting, then, but of real substance there is none. (Kirkus Reviews)
