Publisher's Summary

It all began with the theft of the Orb that protected the West from the evil God Torak. Before that, Garion had been a simple farm boy. Afterward, he discovered he's a sorcerer. Now, at last, the Orb has been regained and the quest nears its end. Of course, the questors must still escape from a crumbling enemy fortress, flee across a desert filled with Murgo soldiers, and avoid the Grolim Hierarchs seeking to destroy them with dark magic. After that, Garion feels assured his part will be finished. But the prophecy still holds several surprises for Garion, and for the Imperial Princess Ce'Nedra.

no talent at writing female characters

great narration but the writer is terrible at writing women. every female character is annoying at best. like every girl is a bee with an itch who likes to rule or toy with men.

One step closer...

As I said before I think Cameron Beirle consolidates his footing better and better with each novel. This is no exception. I noticed fewer and fewer inconsistencies with his narration, particularly in this installment.
Having regained the Orb of Aldur from Ctuchik, the now-vanquished disciple of Torak, Belgarion and his companions must escape from the crumbling city of Rak Cthol, pursued by the soldiers of the maniacal king of Cthol Murgos as well as by the sinister arts of the now-leaderless Grolim priests. Only then can they return the Orb to the Hall of the Rivan King, which Polgara reveals must be accomplished by Erastide. From there Belgarion must set out to meet a destiny beyond
his imagining.

A wonderful time

This book is mainly about Ce'Nedra and her raising an army. The reason she is so feisty is because her feistiness is needed for this task-- and more of course.

Amazing as always

I was impressed at how well the narrarator stirred my emotions when Ce'Nedra gave her impassioned speeches. I've loved these books over 30 years.

Love the series but dislike the audio

The person narrating sometimes couldn’t remember which accent for which character. Sometimes it was either Scottish, Irish, English or Indian. Not sure if I will get the next book in audio format.

Chesspieces Moving as Required

This book is serviceable as a way to exposit where the chesspieces are for the last book, but entirely predictable.

Classic Fantasy Series & Good Narration

Yet another fine addition to a classic fantasy series. Highly recommend! Additionally the narrator does a good job with voices and illustrating the story though pitch and voice inflection.
