Book Review - Magician's Gambit by David Eddings

Book Three of The Belgariad picks up the pace as Garion,  the Sorceror Belgarath,  Polgara and a growing cast of companions which now include Princess Ce'Nedra and the blind priest Relg make their way to the enemies city stronghold to retrieve the Orb of Aldur.

Throughout the book we meet God's,  monsters and more.  We also learn some backstory to Belgarath and learn that an ancient Prophecy has big plans for Ce Nedra and Garion.  Garion also starts to learn to control the power building up inside him and we learn who the mysterious voice that has been in his head from the beginning is.

Overall a great read which throws up more locations and shows what a great imagination David Eddings had.  His death is a great loss to the fantasy genre and I can't wait to read Book Four - Castle of Wizardry. 

Score  -  8/10
