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.

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Belgariad To tell the truth I've read the whole series at least 3 times and plan to read it again. I always find something new when I re-read it. I was overjoyed when the stories of Belgarath and Polgara came out. It helps us understand the bits and pieces that would come out during the series. Facinating reading. You get lost in the words and the adventures. Wonderful writing. Hope to see Poledra's story soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Phenomenal Eddings Masterpiece Edding's artful writing has not diminished throughout this series as is seen in many other writers, particularly Raymond E. Feist. His characters are richly developed, and the entire plot is absorbing, enticing the reader into hours of seclusion. A Fantastic series for any reader.
