She soars above a world of warriors, kings, and priests. The daughter of Belgarath and the shape-shifter Poledra, she has fought wars, plotted palace coups, and worked her powerful magic for three thousand years. Now, Polgara looks back at her magnificent life, in this fitting crown jewel to the saga that is the Eddings' Belgariad and Mallorean cycles. Her hair streaked white by her father's first touch, her mind guided by a mother she will not see again for centuries, Polgara begins life in her Uncle Beldin's tower, and in the prehistorical, magical Tree that stands in the middle of the Vale. There, she first learns the reaches of her powers. There she assumes the bird shapes that will serve her on her adventures. And there she starts on the path toward her destiny as Duchess of Erat, shepherdess of the cause of good, adversary of Torak the One-Eyed Dragon God, and guardian of the world's last, best hope: the heir to the Rivan throne. Here is the legendary life story of a woman of wit, passion, and complex emotions, a woman born of two majestic parents who could not have been more unlike one another. Ordained to make peace and make war, to gain love and lose love, Polgara lives out her family's rich prophecy in the ceaseless struggle between the Light and the Dark. Polgara is the epic culmination of a magnificent saga, and a fitting farewell to a world which, once experienced, will never be forgotten.… (més)

I know that David Eddings books are very much a repeated formula from series to series but that does not take away from my enjoyment of them. I first read his books many years ago when I chose them because they were the longest books I could find. I enjoy his characters and the plot and I find that in general they stand up to the test of time as long as you can enjoy the raging sexism. ( )

After reading all Eddings' Belgariad series (to date, i.e. 1997), this prequel was very enjoyable. It wasn't all that repetitive and would be fine as a stand-alone. I haven't re-read it since it was given to me (1998) so I am not sure how well the work stands up to the test of time and changing tastes. The characterisations and adventures remain in my mind as well-done. Dare I re-read it and lose a great memory? ( )

3.5 stars. Holy god, the Vo Mimbre section is slow. There's a shocking amount of bloat here compared to Belgarath the Sorcerer, and that book is like, 100% fan service. I mean it really takes 3500 years for Polgara to realize she loves her father? Nonsense. Given the two of them have legit reasons to sass each other - Belgarath abandoned her as an infant and has caused most of the most traumatic moments in her life thanks to The Prophecy -- having her let Beldaran go, having her let Ontrose go, that shockingly thoughtless comment when Chamdar tracks down Geran and Ildera -- but man, Polgara is vicious to him and spends 3500 years lying to him about Poledra not being even a little bit dead, even though Poledra's death is WHY he abandoned Polgara as a baby and has most of the shitty habits Polgara nags him about endlessly - but they're both aware enough to realize that's how they handle the eons of trauma the Prophecy has put on them means their family love is not a surprising revelation.

Also, there's a lot of retcon, most of which I don't hate, but the Duchess of Erat retcon is still a leetle intense. On the other hand, without it, it is like "what exactly did Polgara do until she had to hide the Rivan King again?" It's well-done retcon, compared to so many other series, it's just a lot of it.

Also, shocked I hadn't marked this as read before considering I bought this in hardcover 20 years ago and still own it. Isn't THAT interesting? (sorry, had to go for the easy Eddings joke there) ( )

If you'd thought that Belgarath's autobiography had covered all the Events of Necessity, then think again. In this story, Polgara, one of the twin daughters of Belgarath tells the tale of her long millennia looking after the various blood lines that were necessary to the completion of Prophecy. This could have been even more of a rehash of previously covered materials but, although there is obviously some of that, the story is actually deepened more in this than in the Belgarath book. I also enjoyed Polgara's acidic asides as she snipes at her father. ( )

An amazing view into both the history of the world and Polgara's fascinating past! I read Polgara the Sorceress following Belgarath the Sorceror and I was not disappointed. All of the aspects hinted at in Belgarath were revealed in Polgara's prequel. Being able to see a new side of Polgara was truly amazing and just added even more depth to her character when rereading the main series of The Belgariad. ( )

Kail, the Rivan Warder, objected strenuously when King Belgarion told him that he and his queen planned to make the journey to the northern end of the Vale of Aldur unattended, but Garion uncharacteristically put his foot down. (prologue)
This was not my idea.
