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.
Was this series worth £79.50?
Congratrulations... you have just finished spending nearly £80 on an audio book series. Was it worth it. Well, actually, probably, yes... so long as my wife does not find out!? Worth going back and listening to them all again?... probably. As good as Jane Austen?... Lets be fair... what could be? Admittedly you could probably take a family of four to pizza hut for the same cost but I doubt you would get as much pleasure.
A Fantastic Series of Stories.
Brilliantly written, intriging characters and convoluted plot lines. The sort of story that once finished you almost want to listen to the whole lot over again. Cameron Bierley (spelling??) really does bring the story alive, I've downloaded and listened to the entire series, right from Pawn of Prophecy. The narrator has a dazzling capacity to apply not only different voices but also personalities to each character. My one complaint (and it's not a big deal) would be Cameron's pronunciation of certain words, such as Quay, Viscount and Amphitheatre, but his style more than makes up for these minor mistakes, overall he's a brilliant story teller. Many thanks to David Eddings and to Cameron Bierley (apologies for spelling errors?) for providing such a fantastic series of stories. Highly recommended.
