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.

a favorite I always enjoy going back to

I've read the belgariad series multiple times. when I got it on Audible I fell in love with it even more. Cameron Byerly does an excellent job of narrating this series. his characters come to life. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have each time I've listened.

I've read these books many times on my own and love the story and characters. I decided this last time I would give it a listen and was not disappointed. Cameron Beierle gave the characters so much depth. What a great performance and made me love these books on a whole other level!

An outstanding conclusion!

What made the experience of listening to Enchanters' End Game the most enjoyable?

The narrator brings all the characters, and their emotions, to life!

What did you like best about this story?

It's exciting and engaging!

What about Cameron Beierle’s performance did you like?

He's great at narrating the prose as well as voicing the characters.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The nameless boy playing his flute on the battlefield...

Any additional comments?

The final volume of the Belgariad has begun. The dark god Torak stirs in the east and Garion travels with the sorcerer Belgarath and the thief Silk to confront him. But standing between him and the god lies the lands of his followers, the Agerzaks.

In the south, Garion's fiancee, acting in his name, leads the army she's raised to distract the Agerzaks. She will keep the world's attention on her to give her fiancee the chance to slip through and defeat the dark god once and for all.

Danger swells for everyone. War has come to the West while Garion and his small group has to dodge trackers, demons, and Grolim priests eager for new sacrifices for their altars. Two prophecies hurtle towards each other and their titanic conclusion.

Enchanters End Game brings all the story threads together. The book is epic, bouncing around most of the world, seeing the impact of the impending war. Last book was Garion's coming into adulthood and responsibility, and now Ce'Nedra has her own lessons to learn. War isn't a game. It's deadly and serious, and those she cares for will suffer for the decisions she makes.

Garion's arc is much... simpler. He has already reached the pinnacle of his character growth is nearly over. He's made his choice in the last book, now he's marching towards his fate, facing the fear and dread as he comes closer and closer. His final lesson is a profound one, though.

Compassion.

Eddings does a phenomenal job bringing this series to a close satisfactory. I particularly enjoy his epilogue and the efficiency of which he gives all the characters their codas without bogging the narrative down with scene after scene by using a dream as a framing device, allowing him to spend a few paragraphs sketching out the important details and flowing onto the next. The only complaint I have is how little Garion we get in this with half the novel devoted to the war. I also would have wished him to have a more active role in the decisions. Eddings had him grow up into a man, ruling Riva and making decisions only to have him surrender to Belgarath and Silk again. I can see why, but it would have been nice for him to be more in command as our hero.

There are a few loose threads which Eddings uses to take us into a second series. He must have been thinking about the Mallorean because there is enough seeds planted to make the second series mostly work without having to do any major retconning of the ending (this is billed as THE final battle, but there's an extra round still to come).

All in all, the Belgariad was an amazing experience. It's always a pleasure to revisit Eddings in his prime. Fans of Fantasy, especially boys, will enjoy this series.

Does not stand up to other epic fantasy novels series. Builds to a flat ending.

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.

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.

I wasn't sure but now I am

Would you listen to Enchanters' End Game again? Why?

I loved these books as a kid and after reading the reviews, I was hesitant to listen to them. However, I now love the narrator. He really brings the characters alive for me and I can tell who is talking, just from the character voice most of the time. I was unsure about him during the first book but I am so happy I stuck with them. Brilliant.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I found it really touching at times. Listening to these books has really enriched my experience of them.

David Eddings will always be top marks.

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

I would recommend it purely on the book. The narrator is awful.
Every character has some stupid put-on accent and with this, sometimes the words are unintelligible.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Enchanters' End Game?

Not relevant. I'm not going to give spoilers.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The Narrator was Terrible.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, off my seat, having to rewind it to listen again due to the narrators ridiculous accents. I'm Scottish. I have a broad accent, but everyone sounds like they're a mix of an indian Australian American man. Even the women sound like men - which is to be expected.

Any additional comments?

I can't say it enough, about how terrible this narrator was, and how its ruined such a great great book and story in an odd sort of way.

An old favourite story. Many fond memories were revived and, if anything, it's improved by the narration.

What did you like best about this story?

This is a solid finish to a great series, it is not a heavy read/listen, but it does cover a well written coming of age story. I listened to this after enjoying the book as a teenager and it was like returning to long lost friends.

:-)

When I first read this series at 13yrs old, I couldn't bare to read the last book, as I could not bring myself to say good bye to the friends I had made here in. That is how good this is... Then my step farther informed me of the existence of a second series and several other spinoffs. This is my forth time now catching up with my ' friends '...
