Legends tell of the evil God Torak coveting the power of the Orb of Aldur, until he was defeated in a final battle. Prophecy also speaks of a time when he will again awaken to seek dominance over all the world. Now the Orb has been stolen by a priest of Torak, and that time is at hand. Belgarath the Sorcerer and his daughter Polgara the archSorceress are on the trail of the Orb, seeking to regain it before the final disaster.
With them goes Garion, a simple farm boy only months before, but now the focus of the struggle. He had never believed in sorcery, wanting no part of it. Yet with every league they travel, the power is growing within him, forcing him into acts of wizardry that he can't accept. His fate is inextricably wound in the fabric of an unfolding prophecy for glory or doom.

I'm so glad these wonderful books have been added, but disappointed that iTunes decided to skip some of them (in the middle of the series)!
Truely one of the great series out there to read or listen to. I have not listened to this book, but have read it. So I cannot comment on the narrator. But the book is outstanding.
The Belegariad has become one of my most favorite book series. I recomend it to any fantasy lover.
