My world collapsed JUNE 2 2009, the day David Eddings died. I know now what the die-hard Tolkien fans felt with the passing of their god. does anyone else remember the Belgaraid or the Malloreon? What was you favorite moment? I would love to know. For me, I think it was the time when, little more than children, Ce'Nedra took of her clothes in front of Garion (Belgarion) to wash off the grime traveling in a cold river. I was only a boy myself when I first read those passages, and at that moment I fell in love with that mean little fire brand.
