Publisher's Summary

Time was running out for Garion and his companions in their quest to recover Garion's infant son and heir. If they could not locate the Place Which Is No More, then Zandramas, the Child of Dark, would use Garion's son in a rite that would raise the Dark Prophecy to eternal domination over the universe. Only the Seeress of Kell could reveal the site of that mysterious place, and she could only do that once Garion and Polgara had fulfilled an ancient prophecy in the mountain fastness of the Seers.

Kell itself was closed to Zandramas, but her dark magic could force the knowledge she needed from one of Garion's party. She laid her traps and dispatched her foul minions, determined to claim the world for the Dark God. But Garion would let nothing stand between him and his son.

Excellent experience

After reading this series when I was younger, it was a fulfilling experience to now listen to them narrated. All 10 books and I'm disappointed it's finished. can almost guarantee I'll listen to them all again at some stage!

Thank God that’s over

Never has a truly good book been so ruined.
Too much weight to the connective words “a” and “the”
Knoll .. owl .. howl ..dwell .. are all single syllable words bu the reader adds another syllable .. eg, owl becomes ou-well .. knoll becomes kno-well and so on ad-nauseum.

A Happy Ending

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I'd recommend this book, and the rest of the series, to anyone who likes "classic" questing fantasy. The plot is entertaining, if somewhat linear, but the characters are endearing and the dialogue snappy. Great series!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Zakath- he's the only character who really changes.

Have you listened to any of Cameron Beierle’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to his work in the Belgariad and Mallorean, and his work is consistently solid.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I couldn't wait to see how it all ended, though it's much too long for a single sitting.

Any additional comments?

A cynic might say everything wraps up too neatly, but after ten books with these characters I didn't want a George RR Martin-type ending. Everything ends just right.

Excellent book

Cameron Bierly is an exceptionally narrator. He effortlessly changes from one voice to another seamlessly weaving each character's unique personality into their voice.

I am finding more books done by Cameron Beierle.

I love how well the different voices were done, it really makes the story come alive. I do not like readers who read flat with no changes.

Weakest story of the series

I felt like this was the weakest story of the series, and was rather anticlimactic.

Bittersweet

I almost cried through most of this book. Everyone got what they deserved. Except for the readers .....I dont think I deserved that mysterious ending.

Anyways......I loved it. And now onto Belgareth the sorcerer

Excellent story ruined

Superb finale to the series which, to me, was totally ruined by a boring monotonous reading. I read somewhere that Mr Eddings had based his lands on standard types eg Sendar as English Arends as French etc. The reader seems to have done the reading in variations of whining American. Sorry but it totally grated on me and ruined a favourite book.

An old favourite but dated now.

Loved this 30 years ago but comes across very dated now in certain views.
I have struggled through the whole series as the narrator is terrible, the voices keep changing and never seeming to match the characters or the tone.

End of a great saga

Love it but I have to admit, it is just a little sexist and a little dated.
Well worth listening to.

Things repeat ...

I had almost forgotten this series of books which I read thirty years ago when I was a similar age to Garion.
re discovering them has for me been an incredible journey back into my youth, seeing how these things almost shaped the man I was to become. the story is one of loyalty, love and family. of belonging on a cosmic level.
if you haven't read these books do so. and fill your life with love

Note to narrator

Mr Beierle, would you pronounce the word moon mewn? or the word soon sewn? so why oh why do you insist on pronouncing the word noon as newn?? is it some sort aversion you have to speaking the word as it should be spoken?? Other than that excellent performance, 😏👍

Triumphant Conclusion

I’ve loved the Malloreon since I was a child and this book fills my heart to hear! The narrator takes a little getting used to but having heard them all by Cameron now, I’d struggle to hear them in the voice of any other.

Can't quite believe that's the end such an amazing author. Just wish the tales of belgarian would go on for ever.
