It all began with the theft of the Orb that protected the West from the evil God Torak. Before that, Garion had been a simple farm boy. Afterward, he discovered he's a sorcerer. Now, at last, the Orb has been regained and the quest nears its end. Of course, the questors must still escape from a crumbling enemy fortress, flee across a desert filled with Murgo soldiers, avoid the Grolim Hierarchs seeking to destroy them with dark magic. After that, Garion feels assured his part would be finished. But the prophecy still holds several surprises for Garion, and for the Imperial Princess Ce'Nedra.

A Old-Time Cliffhanger
If your a fan, this is a must listen. Narration is suberb, with excellent characterization of the mains. You can sense Garion growing and maturing as the book continues towards it's climax. I was on my seat waiting to download this book to hear the outcome of the final battle of book three. And I've read the series twice.
Great books and the narration finally coheres.
The first book or so, the narrator seemed to not be able to pick a dialect for each character and stick with it. By this book, he seems to have settled into a steady groove, differentiating each character on a consistent basis. I don't absolutely love all the accent choices, but at least I can figure who is who just from the voice.
