Description

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.

One of my favorite series

I love this story and all of its complexities. My one criticism would be that the reader often mispronounces many of the names and words including some which are not left to interpretation. However, nothing so distracting that it would keep me from listening again.

narration is perfect

This would not be the same series without Cameron Beierle narrating. his voice just draws you in to the story and next thing you know is a couple hours down the road.

Absolutely Delightful!!

The only thing that weakens the story would be the timing of the scene changes. I’m not saying I know where they should be in the story; but, I lost my sense of emotional equilibrium to some extent. I’ve read this book (audibly speaking) more than 20 times. It’s obvious that the rhythm of the scene changes didn’t throw me off that much!! I also realize the scene changes are necessary. You’re paying attention to at least 5 places at once. Maybe you could make each scene change shorter (depending on the focus) any way David and Leigh are a dynamic duo of master storytelling!! 👌😎😍🙏 namaste.

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.

Vorhersehbar und flach

Ich musste mich quälen. Das Ende ist genau wie man es erwartet, es gibt keine überraschende Wendung, das Finale ist absolut blutleer und ohne Spannung, da man sowieso weiß was passieren wird. Über die gesamte Serie verändert oder entwickelt sich kein einziger Charakter weiter, sie sind am Ende genau die gleichen wie am Anfang ohne auch nur die Spur einer Veränderung durchzumachen. "Geheimnisse" wie der "Wer-Bär" werden in einem Nebensatz aufgelöst am Ende...sehr schade, hier hätte man einiges leisten können.

Dieser Teil der Serie ist zum aller größten Teil vollends belanglos. Vielleicht ist es neueren, besseren Fantasybüchern geschuldet, dass dieses hier einfach mit dem Standard den ein Abercrombie, Sanderson oder gar Rothfuss setzt, nicht mehr mithalten kann und als Vorreiter gesehen werden muss.

Der Sprecher jedoch ist absolut großartig!

Ich würde die Serie nicht wieder hören.

sehr empfehlenswert

Alle Bücher aus dieser Saga von Eddings sind wunderbar gesprochen, die Figuren wurden wirklich zum Leben erweckt. Die Sprache ist gut verständlich und die Stimme sehr angenehm.
