A magnificent epic set against a history of seven thousand years of the struggles of Gods and Kings and men - of strange lands and events - of fate and a prophecy that must be fulfilled!THE BELGARIADIt had all begun with the theft of the Orb that had so long protected the West from the evil God Torak. Before that, Garion had been a simple farm boy. Afterward, he discovered that his aunt was really the Sorceress Polgara and his grandfather was Belgarath, the Eternal Man. Then, on the long quest to recover the Orb, Garion found to his dismay that he, too, was a sorcerer.Now, at last, the Orb was regained and the quest was nearing its end. Of course, the questors still had to escape from this crumbling enemy fortress and flee across a desert filled with Murgo soldiers searching for them, while Grolim Hierarchs strove to destroy them with dark magic. Then, somehow, they must manage to be in Riva with the Orb by Erastide.After that, however, Garion was sure that his part in these great events would be finished.But the Prophecy still held future surprises for Garion - and for the little Princess Ce'Nedra!Thus continues book four of THE BELGARIAD… (més)

I'm feeling like this series could have been two good books instead of dragging out over five books of declining quality. Garion unexpectedly finds himself king! Ce'Nedra gets some armor and becomes the speech-giving inspiration for the army! One more book is required before the epic saga concludes! ( )

Listened to audio narrated by Cameron Beierie. Their story continues from the end of 'Magician's Gambit.' They've acquired the orb but must escape with it and are making their way back to Riva. There's an interesting side story with Relg and the slave woman Taiba, with hints that their story will have importance later. Garion and Ce'Nedra are in for a big surprise when they reach Riva and discover Garion's identity.

This is such an epic fantasy tale, it's easy to forget that Garion and Ce'Nedra are still very young. The author reminds us and confuses with both of them acting very immature and childlike one minute, then very mature and responsible the next. Both of these characters finally start to grow into their roles within the prophecy and become leaders in their own way. Garion hopes to head off war by confronting Torak, while Ce'Nedra steps into the Queen role by gathering the forces necessary to protect the kingdom.

This story seems to meander as we take side trips to learn about other characters and events and just when you think we're getting to the end, you find out you have to wait for the next book for the final confrontation.

A terrific series advances. The characters continue to be enjoyable and the quest becomes more touch and go for time. ( )

Finally, we’re (mostly) back on track: Garion gets to know his place in the big picture, Ce’Nedra finally becomes a character and not some one-dimensional caricature and Belgarath shows some human feelings.

Whenever we’re not witnessing our heroes travelling but get to know them in their “natural habitat”, things get really interesting.

I’m certainly never going to recommend “The Belgariad” to anyone but a teenager but at least this book made me actually want to finish the series instead of DNF’ing. I hope the fifth book doesn’t make me regret my decision...

Vierde deel uit de serie 'Kronieken van Belgarion'. In dit deel krijgt prinses Ce'Nedra eindelijk een persoonlijkheid. (Bel)Garion was in dit deel nog steeds een vrij vlak figuur, terwijl hij toch de hoofdrol in deze serie zou moeten spelen. ( )
