Review of "David Eddings"
I must admit it took me a while to get into his books the first few books from him I felt had no humor and were a bit to dark those books being Pawn of a prophet and queen of sorcery but later books develop better characters like silk and malldorean.In the beginnings of his book he goes through the history of the regions that belgarion and his family travel through.
I only found this out later his wife leigh eddings co-wrote with him on quite a few of his books and you can notice a slight change in story telling I would not be able to tell you who is who but one of them has a good sense of humor,I only started reading his books late last year and was sad to hear that he had died in june 2009. One of his characters silk also know as Prince keldar had a strong enough character that he could have had a book of his own rather than just polgara a sorceress and Belgareth.Silk is one these people that always makes funny outrageous comments but do not make him mad because he can easily turn to the cuthroat side of him
He has written two series revolving around a character named Garion(belgarion) who job is to go on a quest to fight the child of dark.It was only by accident that he decided to write in the fantasy genre after he saw the lord of the rings books and it was only then that he started becoming well known.
From the few pictures I have seen his characters Belgareth and Pogara seem to resemble him and his wife leigh eddings. If he is anything like Belgareth he is a very drunk moody person.His books will take a while to get use too and they are long but I would recommend you read his books.
here are some books he has done
Pawn of Prophecy (1982)
Queen of Sorcery (1982)
Magician's Gambit (1983)
Castle of Wizardry (1984)
Enchanters' End Game (1984)
Prince Keldar is a famous merchant and he is not famous in a good way he cheats people of there hard earned money.To adapt to his situation of being on the run all the time he has to go in disguise all the time and like a great actor as soon as he puts on the character he wants to become there is an instant transformation and he becomes that character.His comments can be offensive yet funny at the same time.A book done on him could go into the different characters he has become.
He is also a spy so it could go into what stuff has been revealed to him.
