Queen of Sorcery by David Eddings (The Belgariad: Book 2)

8/10 Enjoyable, comforting, fantasy reading.

Queen of Sorcery is the second book in David Edding's fantasy series The Belgariad. The book follows on from the events in Pawn of Prophecy.

Zedar, priest of Torak has stolen the Orb of Aldur and Belgarath (Mister Wolf), Polgara (Aunt Pol), Garion and their friends are following him across Arendia, Tolnedra and Nyissa.

This story is of the coming of age of Garion and follows him as his awareness grows of his powers. Eddings creates believable and enjoyable characters and in Princess Ce'Nedra he meets his match in a girl with which his destiny is joined.

Pawn of Prophecy was all about introducing the characters and setting the scene for what will follow. Queen of Sorcery picks up the pace as the action hots up. New characters join the party and add to an already impressive list.

Queen of Sorcery is perfect for young adults but can also be read by adults. The good versus evil part is very cut and dried and although there are a couple of sections that can be described as violent this will not result in giving younger readers nightmares.

Adventure, travel, magic, swords, humour and good characters all go into making this a very enjoyable read. There is great comfort from reading Eddings' books and there are worse ways to spend a rainy day or long journey.
