The Seeress of Kell Audiobook

The Seeress of Kell: The Malloreon, Book 5

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.

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.

    "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.

    "The story is fun, narration distracting"

    I like David Eddings' book even if there are formulaic parts. They are, I think, intended to be fun and evoke emotion, not be fine literature. The narration removed the fun from the banter. Large chunks of the book had a long enough pause between words to be frustrating. The attempts to do female voices were irritating and the accents were distracting rather than adding depth. I'm sorry I spent a credit on this.

    "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.

    "The next best thing to reading the book yourself!"
    Would you listen to The Seeress of Kell again? Why?

    Yes. I love the book, and despite issues with Beierle mispronouncing some names and assigning odd accents to characters (seriously, why does Mandorallen have a Pythonesque-french accent?), his narration is a lot of fun to listen to while I drive.


    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

    "Nothing More Painful Than The End of A Good Series"
    What made the experience of listening to The Seeress of Kell the most enjoyable?

    As always Cameron Beierle performed the amazing words of David Eddings to perfection. However this book is my favourite and most poignant of his works as it hails the ending of two of my favourite fantasy series ever. The Belgariad and The Malloreon are extremely under-rated since they are so powerful!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The slow change in the characters as they crept closer to the final meeting between the child of light and the child of dark.


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

    Perfect performance as always. When I read any of David Eddings work, I hear it read in his voice inside my head.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "This Should Be a TV Series Not a Film"

    "Fantastic ending to a great saga."

    Having listened to the other 4 books in the series I did wonder how this one would end, and Eddings didn't dissapoint. I loved the narrators distinct voices for each of the characters, in particular Zakath. When I read the novels originally, Zakath came over two dimensional, but Cameron Beierle brings a depth and warmth to him that I had not seen before. If you have listened to the others, then please get this one as well, you wont be dissapointed.

    "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.

    "The Seeress Of Kell by David Eddings"

    This is the final installment in David Eddings' the "Malorean" comparable, with the "Belgariad" to Tolkien's "The Lord Of The Rings" in its breathtaking epic reaches, humour and pathos. Here, the band of travellers must reach their final goal, and the two prophecies, must at last decide who will reign supreme over the world. But Garion must choose one of his friends to become a god, and one must die ... but who? Read on and find out, unstopable and magical.
