Description

Legends tell of the evil god Torak coveting the power of the Orb of Aldur, until he was defeated in a final battle. Prophecy also speaks of a time when he will again awaken to seek dominance over all the world. Now the Orb has been stolen by a priest of Torak, and that time is at hand. Belgarath the Sorcerer and his daughter, Polgara the arch-Sorceress, are on the trail of the Orb, seeking to regain it before the final disaster.

With them goes Garion, a simple farm boy only months before, but now the focus of the struggle. He had never believed in sorcery, wanting no part of it. Yet with every league they travel, the power is growing within him, forcing him into acts of wizardry that he can't accept. His fate is inextricably woven into the fabric of an unfolding prophecy for glory or doom.

Love the Story Not the Reader

This is a wonderful fantasy series and I hope they get the first book Pawn of Prophecy eventually. However unlike the other reviewer, I thought the reader was rather mediocre. The accents were inconsistant and frankly I didnt find them well done. They are mixture of Arnold Schwartzenhager..( and Boris Badenov with fake Scotts and French thrown in. They annoyed me throughout the entire story and usually I am not all that concerned about narration. On the good side Cameron Beierle's narration is clear. He would have done better however to just give the book a straight read.

The characters come to life

This second installment in the Belgariad is just as enjoyable as the first. Cameron's reading is excellent and he manages to bring the characters to life. A lovely fantasy adventure, that incorporates the best of family values. The story of a boy on his way to manhood, and the people who guide him along the way. A good listen for juveniles as well

Great Audiobook

Although I agree that the narrator defaulted to a French accent for the characters of lesser importance, I thought he did a tremendous job. I especially loved his portrayal of Silk.
I loved it!

I think It's time for some plain talk

Sorry, so sorry. I know that I am only one of four people that gave this story just one star. The majority of you gave it five stars, but I have to be truthful. If your tastes, our similar to mine, you will find this to be a snoozer. I could not get into it. I tried for four and a half hours and could not go any farther.

This is one of those books were the characters talk a lot. The talk about what they are going to do, what they did and what they should not have done. There is some action, but it is quick and then they talk about what they just did.

A lot of people who love Eddings, fell in love with him back in the eighties and his writing reflects what fantasy was like back then. I am just glad things have changed and if you are of the younger generation you will probably not get into this either.

Narrator was great. One of his characters sounded actually like Sean Connery.

Great story, bad narrator

Any additional comments?

Aside form Silk, the characters' accents are very inconsistent, and they seem to vary from a heavy French accent to a light French accent. Occasionally, someone will have an Italian one for a few paragraphs, but then it'll be back to French. It would've been better with a straight read.

Renewed rememberance

I have read this series so many times that I have lost count. listening to the audible version has opened this story up and have found myself laughing and remembering things I had forgotten. Cameron Beierle way of speaking for each character has a way of bringing them to life in a way I never noticed with just simply reading the books.
