Okay. I keep thinking that this story is going to bore me to death than things start happening. I jumped for joy. Yes there are a couple annoying characters are not going to go away, but they have somewhat redeemed themselves this time around. Excellent ending too. ( )

As stated in the previous books reviewed, I love this entire series. In this 4th installment of the life of Belgarion, we get closer to his inevitable meeting with the god Torak. He finds that he is marrying his friend C'Nedra, who begins here as a spoiled brat. And he finally fulfills one of his destinies which to take the throne and title of Overlord of the West.

I may go back and read these again...they were fun. ( )

This book does suffer from some emotional simplicity & a certain ham-fistedness in the writing but if you've been reading the series it has a whole load of payoff. Overall a good show. ( )

La storia procede, i personaggi crescono e sono sempre credibili. Ottima prosecuzione della saga. ( )

END OF THE QUEST

It had all begun with the theft of the Orb that had so long protected the West from the evil God Torak. Before that, Garion had been a simple farm boy. Afterward, he discovered that his aunt was really the Sorceress Polgara and his grandfather was Belgarath, the Eternal Man. Then, on the long quest to recover the Orb, Garion found to his dismay that he, too, was a sorcerer.

Now, at last, the Orb was regained and the quest was nearing its end. Of course, the questors still had to escape from this crumbling enemy fortress and flee across a desert filled with Murgo soldiers searching for them, while Grolim Hierarchs strove to destroy them with dark magic. Then, somehow, they must manage to be in Riva with the Orb by Erastide. After that, however, Garion was sure that his part in these great events would be finished.

But the Prophecy still held future surprises for Garion--and for the little princess Ce'Nedra.

This continues the magnificent epic of The Belgariad,  begun in Pawn of Prophecy, Queen of Sorcery, and Magician's Gambit--a fantasy set against a background of the war of men, Kings, and Gods that had spanned seven thousand years--a novel of fate, strange lands, and a prophecy that must be fulfilled!
