Enchanters' End Game: The Belgariad, Book 5

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.

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.

    "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.

    "The next best thing to reading it yourself."
    If you could sum up Enchanters' End Game in three words, what would they be?

    All you could want and more to wrap up the Belgariad.


    What about Cameron Beierle’s performance did you like?

    He has a wide range of voices and accents. Some of his accents missed the mark, or weren't right for the characters, I think, but overall he was fun to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    Beierle had his faults--he gets a little carried away with his accents (and I think he misses the mark significantly on a few), but his narrations are the best so far.

    However, I seriously wish the narrators would put in the time to get the name pronunciations right. I really don't understand how they can mangle some of them so badly. Here's something "straight from the horse's mouth" I found after a 15 second Google search.

    "Cameron Beierle is amazing again!"

    I absolutely liked the story a lot, but what made it become love was the narration by Cameron Beierle. That man is TALENTED! 8 different accents and sooo much more. The ending was a great one, with the author taking the time to close all the loops of stories. If you have never read the Belgariad, listen to it now. If you read it before and liked it, listen to it now and fall in love with it.

    Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book.

    "If there is nothing else..."

    I guess that if you have nothing else in your library and can’t find anything else worthwhile to read, then this is not the worst choice that you can make. I read this book when I was still a kid, and loved it then, it is David Eddings after all. Since then I have become more stimulated by writers like Robert Jordan, George RR Martin, Brandon Sanderson etc. This might be one of those cases where I am simply over critical, but…

    "A satisfying conclusion."

    At the end of Castle of Wizardry Belgarion, newly-crowned King of Riva, set out with his grandfather Belgarath and Prince Kheldar of Drasnia, to seek out Cthol Mishrak, the City of Night, where the evil god TOrak has been stirring in his centuries-long slumber since the moment Belgarion laid hands on the Orb of Aldur. An epic confrontation is at hand that will decide the fate of all men. Meanwhile, Princess Ce'Nedra, daughter of Emperor Ran Borune of Tolnedra and betrothed of Belgarion, hatches a daring and dangerous scheme in the hopes of diverting the attention of the Angaraks, the worshippers of Torak, so that Belgarion might win through to face the enemy. The question, of course, is not so much whether she will succeed, but how many of her soldiers will she lead back home again even if the diversion succeeds? Of course the ultimate question is whether Belgarion will be strong enough to resist the full might of Torak himself.
    Once again I feel Cameron Beirle does a fine job with the narration. He seems to have found his footing both with the pronunciations of admittedly dificult names, as well as with the voices he gives to the characters. So all in all this is an excellent conclusion to an excellent series.

    "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.

    "Fascinating story"

    Wonderful end to the Belgariad series. This book can be a standalone but you get more out of it if you read the earlier books first. Parts of the book were a bit tough going but overall a very interesting listen. The narrator is very good too.

    "Never go back"

    I read this years ago along with the rest of them and thought they were great,BUT, on this revisit I was so disappointed. This felt like mechanical writing, the story was poor and I just did not enjoy it. May be me getting older but I do not think so.
