The Belgariad fantasy series just gets better and better. Book three Magician’s Gambit sees our band of unlikely heroes escape the danger in Nyissa to face an even more dangerous realm of Maragor – home of the dead.
Escaping with their lives and minds intact they push on forwards to the Vale of Aldur and then to the strange land of Ulgo, where they find a city beneath the ground. Now accompanied and aided by a clever sorcerer Relig our band makes it to Cthol Murgos to face evil and a showdown with Ctuchik himself. Can Belgarath better his arch enemy and can they rescue the orb? 

Fantastic old-school fantasy. Brilliant escapism. Love every moment. On to book four – Castle of Wizadry.
