Books of the Month - February 2009
I really didn't want to do these books for this month's selections, but since they have dominated my leisure time reading in the last several weeks, I figured I'd do 'em anyway.
The selections this month are volumes one and two of The Malloreon, by David Eddings. The first book contains volumes 1-3 of the original series and the second book contains volumes four and five. This story begins some 12 years after The Belgariad ends, continuing with some of the same main characters and introducing some new ones.
Purchase The Malloreon, Volume One (Books 1-3) here.
Guardians of the West was published in 1988. King of the Murgos and Demon Lord of Karanda followed in 1989. Volume four, The Sorceress of Darshiva, was published in 1990 and Seeress of Kell completed the second, five book cycle in 1992.
I started reading this series shortly after the first book came out in hardcover, and eagerly awaited each new volume, devouring it within days of its release.
While not quite as good as the original series, this story is still good and entertaining. I think you'll enjoy them.
Purchase The Malloreon, Volume Two (Books 4-5) here.
