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.

Love!

I'm sad it's finished. I read the books when I was in my 20s but the audio book takes it to another level! The narrator was very good, made the book come alive. Full of so much adventure.

Good coming of age book

David Eddings has a relaxed positive style of writing that is easy to follow and enjoy. David was one of the earlier pioneers who helped develop the fantasy genre. The Belgariad is an enjoyable romp through an imaginary world.

A solid ending

What did you like best about this story?

This is a solid finish to a great series, it is not a heavy read/listen, but it does cover a well written coming of age story. I listened to this after enjoying the book as a teenager and it was like returning to long lost friends.

:-)

When I first read this series at 13yrs old, I couldn't bare to read the last book, as I could not bring myself to say good bye to the friends I had made here in. That is how good this is... Then my step farther informed me of the existence of a second series and several other spinoffs. This is my forth time now catching up with my ' friends '...

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.

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.

Enchanter's End Game by David Eddings

Garion is nearing the end of his quest. Travelling with Mr Wolf and Silk to meet their desperate end, little does he know that his Fiance is leading the armies of the west, in hopes of distracting his enemies, in the hopes that it will help Garion get through. I adore fantasy and David Eddings is one of my favourite writers. This is the ending of a fantastic epic. Will Cenedra and the others escape after being kidnapped? Will Garion ever see them again? Will the evil god Torak survive? read the book and find out.

Childhood fave turned into a grind by narrator

This is such a wonderful, quite simple, piece of fantasy writing . I first read the books when I was in my early teens and then proceeded to read them time and time again. I was overjoyed when I saw them on Audible and horrified when I started listening. The story is, of course, wonderful and has some lovely characters and beautifully crafted lands, if somewhat stereotypical races, but the narrator is abysmal. I mean shocking. The worst. I powered through the series as I love it so much, but there's no way on gods earth I'm getting into the Mallorean with this narrator. Pick up the book and enjoy this classic. Avoid this narrator like the plague.

I wasn't sure but now I am

Would you listen to Enchanters' End Game again? Why?

I loved these books as a kid and after reading the reviews, I was hesitant to listen to them. However, I now love the narrator. He really brings the characters alive for me and I can tell who is talking, just from the character voice most of the time. I was unsure about him during the first book but I am so happy I stuck with them. Brilliant.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I found it really touching at times. Listening to these books has really enriched my experience of them.
