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.

Such an epic recording

I have read these books over and over in the last 25 years, the last time perhaps 20 years ago. To be able to hear them during my commute over 5 weeks, really enhanced my experience. the audio caused me to slow down, and I believe I heard the story more deeply. Looking forward to starting the Mallorean story, the next chapter in the story.....

A Perfect Ending in this First Five Book Series

The fifth and final book in the Belgariad series is outstanding. This book is full of adventure as Belgarath, Belgarion and Silk continue their journey to the final fateful meeting of prophecy. Belgarion's princess has raised an army and that army draws attention away from what the others are doing. It is full of adventure and danger and battles. This is a great final book to this series. It takes you to a good ending, while leaving you wanting more. And the Mallorean series is just waiting in the wings so you can continue the epic journeys of this magnificent group of characters.

I just can't emphasize enough how much I love these characters. David Eddings has a way of really exploring these characters and making you feel like you really know them. Each character has a personality. Each one is different and you can't help but love them all for their differences. Character development is so important to me and these books definitely deliver.

The story is itself is intriguing and full of adventure. It is an epic adventure for sure and I love it. This was one of my favorite series over 20 years ago when I first read it and it is still an amazing story and easily one of my favorites.

I can't imagine this series being read by anyone other than Cameron Beierle. He gives each character their own voice and with his telling I love the characters even more than I did the first read through. He really does such a fantastic job on his narrating.

mildly disappointing

this book wasn't as exciting as the others in the series. I found the middle difficult to get through and the final battle was too predictable. the epilogue saved it but still.

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.

Good coming of age book

David Eddings has a relaxed positive style of writing that is easy to follow and enjoy. David was one of the earlier pioneers who helped develop the fantasy genre. The Belgariad is an enjoyable romp through an imaginary world.

A solid ending

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 '...

very enjoyable; the story flows at an adventurous rate not to quickly and not to slowly.
