From previous posts you will probably know that after coming across the series of books recently in some boxes, I’ve started re-reading the Belgariad by David Eddings. I am now onto book five, the final one of the series. Enchanters’ End Game brings the Belgariad to a close, but paves the way to a further series of books also set in this world.

FRIDAY 56:

They cheered when she stopped, and she smiled a slow, mysterious smile.
‘You dance very well,’ the scar-faced trapper observed in a neutral voice.
‘Naturally,’ she replied. ‘I do everything very well.’
‘Are you in love with anyone?’ The question was bluntly put.
‘No man has won my heart,’ Vella declared flatly. ‘I haven’t seen a man yet who was worthy of me.’
