Publisher's Summary

Legends tell of the evil god Torak coveting the power of the Orb of Aldur, until he was defeated in a final battle. 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. He had never believed in sorcery, wanting no part of it. Yet with every league they travel, the power is growing within him, forcing him into acts of wizardry that he can't accept. His fate is inextricably woven into the fabric of an unfolding prophecy for glory or doom.

    "Light & Entertaining"

    Have read this as a kid & still love it now even as an adult. I come back to it after many years have passed when I have forgotten the story already. It feels like reading it again for the first time.

    "a little much on the narration"

    I originally read these books when I was younger and naturally when I saw them on audible I felt the need to revisit this wonderful story

    The story is as great as it was but the narration seems lacking ......it seems like all the characters accents change from chapter to chapter and even from sentence to sentence sometimes

    less embellishment would serve better

    "Great Book"

    I have read these books before and I always love them. I think that the story is well told and the characters are not one-dimensional. The only thing that I don't like about the audiobook is that the narrator is inconsistent. The accents that he uses for the characters change frequently and he flips back-and-forth. What sentence a character could sound French and the next German or Russian. This could be so good if he would apply the same accent to the same character throughout the book.

    "good plot and dialogue, irritating narrator"

    I've enjoyed the book and series on the whole but was quite annoyed with the narration. Aside from minor items (always saying "secession" when in context the word must have clearly been "succession", for example), the narrator had very little consistency in intonation or even in pronouncing characters' names. While I realize that there are rather a lot of people introduced over the course of the series, and many countries, a single character sometimes sounds Russian, Swedish, Irish, or American. Given the structure of the series, it would make sense for each country to have a designated accent and stick with that. But at a minimum, I would like consistent accent and intonation for individuals we spend a lot of time with!

    "Terrible narration"

    The narrator's male character voices usually sound pretentious and flamboyant. Garion's Voice they randomly picks up a English or Australian accent. Overall this narrator gets very very annoying the more you listen to him.

    "Queen Of Sorcery by David Eddings"

    After the breathtaking events of \"Pawn Of Prophecy\", the reader is dying to know what happens next. Here, Eddings continues to show us his genius, plunging Garion in to a world in to which he is not prepared to go. Full of wit and wisdom, this continuation of the epic adventure sees Garion being kidnapped, comming to terms with the fact that sorcery is in his family, and meeting more people on the quest, about which, he still knows little, but upon which he has embarked ... a must read for all Eddings fans.
