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.

    "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.

    "great tale"

    read both series a great many years ago. a few decades later, like a brand new tale. I am an OTR truck driver and the miles melted away as I listened. the multiple voices gave the tale a lot of depth. narrator done a great job I thought.

    "Loved it"

    I have re-read the Belgariad en Mallorean every year for the last decade or so. The story just flows so easily and sort of sooths my sole. However, from now on I will probably listen to it every year instead. The narator is brilliant. His ability to create distinctive and appropriate voices brings a new dimension to this much lived story. It raises it from brilliant to sublime

    "I first read the series back in the early 1980's."

    I first read the series back in the early 1980's. I have read it twice and listened to the audio books twice. Each time I read or listen it was like going home to visit an old friend. And each time that visit ends I long to return.

    "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.

    "Love-hate"
    What disappointed you about The Seeress of Kell?

    I must love this series as I've re-read it several times over the years. However, the humour is so bad in "Altheus" that it finally stopped my re-readings any of Eddings books. <br/><br/>Recently, I needed comfort whilst recovering from a feverish cold and ordered this audio book. Of course, one cannot skim-read an audio-book quite so easily and so I chose the last book in the series where everyone and everything is sorted out.<br/><br/>The narration made me laugh out loud in places - Belgarion as Sean Connery!? - Durnick as Michael Caine?! Hysterically funny.


    What other book might you compare The Seeress of Kell to, and why?

    The Seeress of Kell is like all other Eddings books. Lots of repetition e.g. "she lifted her flawless face" and "that's one to her".


    What didn’t you like about Cameron Beierle’s performance?

    The narration was a surprise, as mentioned above. Also, some of the names were pronounced with different emphasis to those I had in my head. However, that could be my mistake.<br/><br/>


    Any additional comments?

    As commented before, I have a love/hate relationship with the Eddings books. On the one hand they have interesting characters and are very easy to read. On the other hand, Eddings had so much potential as a writer, it is a pity that he (or "they" if you include his wife) gave so much emphasis on nauseous humour.

    "Great end to a great story"

    This is the culmination to an absolutely captivating series. The last book didn't disapoint and the characters will be sadly missed. Thank you David Endings.

    "A perfect end"

    On occasion this series could be faulted for timing issues, the apparent dragging out of the 'b' story and sudden rush of the 'a' story. This the final book demonstrates that the preconception of the main and sub-story can be flipped. This book suffers no timing issues using its now detailed history to really expand the story and add to the suspense and the conclusions are just perfect, rounding the whole series.

    "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.
