Belgareth and Polgara have taken Garion and the other members of their party to follow a thief. They are in danger from the Murgoes and others that Garion does not fully comprehend. As they go through the different nations of their world they pick up more heroes to help them on their quest. They also gain a few people who are not heroes.

This is a time of learning for Garion. Having been raised on a farm all his life before this quest, he does not realize all the different types of people around. He learns about loyalty and bravery, foolishness and fear. He is learning more about himself and the secret that is hidden inside of himself.

He realizes in Pawn of Prophecy there is more to Aunt Pol and the Old Wolf than he had first suspected. More of their power and care for him is revealed in this novel. Garion is also experiencing the problems of growing up…having to come to terms with himself.

Queen of Sorcery is well woven. Aunt Pol and Garion have believable arguments that any parent/guardian will have with a teenager. The adventures along their way help strengthen Garion’s character. Queen of Sorcery is not a stand alone book. David Eddings leaves many questions unanswered. It is a great link in the series.
