For this year's A-Z challenge, I'm posting an A-Z list of books I want to read. My selections are taken from my to-read shelf at GoodReads. For today's book starting with "Q", I've chosen...
Queen of Sorcery (The Belgariad #2) - David Eddings
"BELGARIAD is exactly the kind of fantasy I like. It has magic, adventure, humor, mystery, and a certain delightful human insight." PIERS ANTHONY
The master Sorcerer Belgarath and his daughter Polgara the arch-Sorceress were on the trail of the Orb, seeking to regain its saving power before the final disaster prophesized by the legends. And with them went Garion, a simple farm boy only months before, but now the focus of the struggle. He had never believed in sorcery and wanted no part of it. Yet with every league they traveled, the power grew in him, forcing him to acts of wizardry he could not accept.
Why do I want to read it? I have never read any David Eddings, even though I was a hardcore fantasy addict for many years, and still love a good fantasy read... Eddings strikes me as a bit of a must-read for fantasy fans, a legend in the field. From what I've heard in the past, I'm not sure if I'll like this series or not, but I won't know until I try, right?
