Publisher's Summary

The quest was over. The Orb of Aldur was restored. And once again, with the crowning of Garion, there was a descendant of Riva Iron-grip to rule as Overlord of the West. And yet the prophecy was unfulfilled. In the east, the evil god Torak was about to awaken and seek dominion. Somehow, Garion had to face the god, to kill or be killed. On the outcome of that dread duel rested the destiny of the world. Now, accompanied by his grandfather, the ancient sorcerer Belgarath, Garion heads toward the City of Endless Night, where Torak awaits him.

To the south, his young fiancée, the Imperial Princess Ce'Nedra, leads the armies of the West in a desperate effort to divert the forces of Torak's horde away from the man she loved. The prophecy drives Garion on, but it gives no answer to the question that haunts him. How does a man kill an immortal god? He must answer that question in this resolution of the epic war between men, kings and gods that has spanned 7,000 years.

My Favorite Fantasy Series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would absolutely recommend this entire series to a friend. I have actually done so. It is a perfect set for audio.

What did you like best about this story?

The best thing about The Belgariad is that it is the perfect combination of marvelous stories and great story telling.

Have you listened to any of Cameron Beierle’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I own everything that the Eddings have written and Cameron Beierlie fits the voice that I have always imagined telling the stories. These are the first that I have heard him narrate but I will be looking for more from him.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A Sword and Sorcery adventure for the ages.

Any additional comments?

I waited until I had heard the entire series The Belgariad and The Malorrean before doing a review. I must say that, having read them in print, the audio versions are just as much fun and entirely engrossing. Very Well Done.

underwhelming.

finished the series, sorta anitclimatic as far as epic adventure series go. I'm not saying I could have done better I just wish the characters were the least bit dynamic. a story about foils that ends up predictable when it's not non sensical.

great book

loved the book. The narrator kept losing and switching accents of characters though. Other than that it was an overall great expenditure of time.

the finale

Mon Dieu! This book was soooo intense. The great escape from the women, of which I just about died laughing.

The final battle against Kal Torak and his sad demise.

There's still the Mallorean because the prophecy isn't quite finished.

oh boy.

I kind of think Belgarion would of rather fight Torak again and again than deal with the stress of getting married lolz.

I'm also kind of sad. The gang is broken up now and almost everyone is happy except Belgareth, Manndoralen and Silk.
