The Guardians of the West was a much appreciated continuation of the Belgariad series. It brought back all my favorite characters, and is also the beginning of a much better series.
While this book (and series) will never be extremely high up on my all-time greatest books list, it is extremely high on my all-time most wildly entertaining books list. Don't read this to by emotionally moved or intellectually stimulated, but read it to have a wildly fun time. The characters are somewhat flat, but make up for it with many quirks and outragous personalities. I probably laughed more reading this series than any other book, with the exception of any written by Douglas Adams.
The plot was intelligently put together, and the books read very quickly. The characters are all fun, although Ce'Nedra irritated me. She was tough and funny in the Belgariad, but she comes across as mory of a whiny wimp in this series. But aside from that the Guardians of the West, and the entire Malloreon series is Eddings' best work to date, and better than most of the fantasy's out on the market right now.
Definitely recommended for any fantasy lover.

After the tremendous success of the Belgariad there almost had to be a sequel. Our hero has somewhat matured, sometimes he seems as irritable and grouchy as his grandfather! Otherwise everything stays more or less the same. There's a prophecy, there's a quest for something lost (Belgarion's son) and the party gets together again.
A real good read. It made my mouth water for the next books and it was really hard to wait for them to be published.

WHy fight it? The man is good! After what seemed to be a final phase in the history of Garion and companions, David Eddings had managed to come up with some good stuff. Taking what was given in the first series, he has expanded and created a broader world for us to play in. What I particularly enjoyed was the way Garion was feeling around with this will.Suffering tutelage under his grandfather and Polgara is a task I can only eny. What riles me is the complete dismissal other reviewers have given the book, and the series. I found it enchanting the way he has explored new themes in the Codex and imported some of the Grolim ideologies into the plot, placing the reader into context as to what is really going on. Granted this book is a bit nerve-wrecking with its meandering plot as to who is the bad guys and what a surprise when we discover Zandramas is a woman! Go girlfriend! What I would have prefered is a direct confrontation between Polgara and Zandramas right there and now, but suppose that all writers have their idiosyncrasies that all devotees have to deal with. It was a bit painful that the normal set of heroes could not accompany Garion on his latest quest, but then it provided an avenue for David to explore and import new characters. Barak and Hettar would simply not have worked later on in the series. The are to impesteous to be roaming free in Mallorea. The addition of the Seeres of Kell was fresh and exciting, though she has worked on my nerves for a while. I love this book, and I am not ashamed to say that I have collected all the books this man has ever published. Long Live David Eddings... and his wife. Thanks

This follow-up to the Belgariad only confirms a sneaking suspicion I`ve always had: that the literary profession is a soulless business...or at least, it becomes one as the cash starts flooding in. David Eddings is painfully obvious in his attempt to milk the Belgariad for all it`s worth, taking advantage of the reader`s natural desire to `find out what happens`. Well, for those who haven`t had the dubious pleasure to read the Mallorean yet, I can summarize what happens in a nutshell (or rather, a few sentences) : characters that were reasonably good in the Belgariad are steamrollered flat, dialogue lines I can promise you you`ve heard before are faithfully repeated for the umpteenth time (perhaps to convey the atmosphere of a familiar world where nothing changes - now doesn`t that give you a nice, warm, fuzzy feeling?); a plot that would have made a excellent novella is ruthlessly stretched to a length of five volumes ( I could almost imagine the poor manuscript strapped on a rack, groaning), and when it does finally end, you may be in for a surprise: you predicted the ending! Incredible...maybe you`ve started to think like David Eddings!!! (And heaven save you if you have - his seven gods certainly won`t

This is a good start to a wonderfully entertaining and funny series. I accidently read this before the Belgriad and now I can't wait to read it also. One of the best parts is when Ce Nedra is having her baby and poor Garion rushes about in a daze chopping wood. That parts hilarious. Guardians of the West sets the stage for the rest of the series, the journey doesn't really begin until King of the Murgos.The only complaint I could make about this series is that the women never seem to take any part in the action and that they make fun of the guys too much. Also, these are suppose to be grown adults but they all seem to blush whenever anyone so much as mentions anything about sex, even Silk gets uncomfortable when its mentioned and hes suppose to be such a wordly guy.And whats up with the overuse of the phrase "sort of"? everybodys always going around saying, "I'll sort of make a point about it." or using it some other way. Anyway, this is a very entertaining series with great characters. My fave character was Silk and I wish that Eddings would write a whole book about his adventures.
