The Belgariad

Redirected from Belgariad

The Belgariad is David Eddings' first fantasy series. The series consists of five volumes:

The books tell of the journey and coming-of-age of Garion the stableboy (later known as Belgarion[?]). Garion is accompanied by his guardian Polgara[?], and the ancient wizard/sorcerer Belgarath[?] and a number of other important characters.

Each book's title combines a chess related term with fantasy term, it has been suggested that the series as a whole forms an analogy to a game of chess.

The follow-up series to the Belgariad is The Mallorean, and Belgarath the Sorcerer, Polgara the Sorceress, and The Rivan Codex are also related titles.
