The Belgariad is a series of five books written by David Eddings. It is regarded as one of the classics of fantasy. In these books, Eddings successfully approached fantasy as a form of Medieval Romance, an approach he reiterated in later books in this same world as well as his other works.

The Malloreon is a second five-book series set in the same world as the Belgariad, though exploring many different geographical regions than those seen in the first five books.
