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.

My favorite series.

This series has been the most wonderful fascinating journey. I started these books in the fourth grade and came back across them on audible now at 30. The relationships between the characters and the details described here fill your mind with the story. This narrater Cameron has done a wonderful job as well. With a particular accent and style to each character they really became alive for me. I recommend this whole series to any one who loves fantasy or just a good story.

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.

Note to narrator

Mr Beierle, would you pronounce the word moon mewn? or the word soon sewn? so why oh why do you insist on pronouncing the word noon as newn?? is it some sort aversion you have to speaking the word as it should be spoken?? Other than that excellent performance, 😏👍

Triumphant Conclusion

I’ve loved the Malloreon since I was a child and this book fills my heart to hear! The narrator takes a little getting used to but having heard them all by Cameron now, I’d struggle to hear them in the voice of any other.

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.

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.

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.

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.
