Book Review of Guardians of the West (Malloreon, Bk 1)

Guardians of the West (Malloreon, Bk 1)
reviewed on

This book starts the follow up to the Belgariad series, which you should read first. I really enjoyed Belgariad, but I had a hard time getting into Malloreon. I find Ce'Nedra (a fairly major character) to be really, really annoying. She didn't play as major of a role in Belgariad, so that was ok, but now, every time she was in a scene, I would cringe. All the other characters are great, and it was nice to have some closure on the whole story. A good, but not great read. It can be somewhat predictable if you've read any of Edding's other books.
