    (809)

    Legends tell of the evil god Torak coveting the power of the Orb of Aldur. Prophecy also speaks of a time when he will again awaken to seek dominance over all the world. Now the Orb has been stolen by a priest of Torak, and that time is at hand. Belgarath the Sorcerer and his daughter, Polgara the arch-Sorceress, are on the trail of the Orb, seeking to regain it before the final disaster. With them goes Garion, a simple farm boy only months before, but now the focus of the struggle.

    Story

    The Belgariad was a favorite of mine when I was a teenager. I'm so pleased to share this with my daughter now. We had a long car ride coming up, so we downloaded this book. The story and characters are as fun today as they were 30 years ago. And Cameron Beierle is a master at getting the characters just right. It's hard to believe that one man can make so many voices!

  • Tigana

    Tigana is the magical story of a beleaguered land struggling to be free. It is the tale of a people so cursed by the black sorcery of a cruel, despotic king that even the name of their once-beautiful homeland cannot be spoken or remembered.

    But after years of devastation, a handful of courageous men and women embark upon a dangerous crusade to overthrow their conquerors and bring back to the dark world the brilliance of a long-lost name: Tigana.

    Story

    I particularly enjoyed the author's note (read by the author) at the end because it nicely summarized the way I feel about really good fantasy. Tigana has been one of my favorites for years. The heroes aren't always heroic and the bad guys aren't all bad. It's a beautiful story and Simon Vance is an excellent narrator. He brought the story to life if a new way for me, which is why I buy all my old favorites as audio books.
