Publisher's Summary

Troubles and delays continue to mount as King Garion, Belgarath, Polgara, and the company pursue Zandramas across the known world. Possessed by the Dark Destiny, Zandramas has kidnapped Garion's infant son and plans to use him in a ritual that would destroy all that men value. Always one step ahead, taunting and spying on Garion and his party in the form of a great flying dragon, Zandramas races to beat them to the "Place Which Is No More".

Desperate to arrive at the ancient ritual site at the same time, or face disaster, Garion and his friends must defend themselves against Zandramas' armies, led by the Demon Lord on one side of them, and the forces of Emperor Zakath on the other side. To make matters worse, they have no idea where to find the "Place Which Is No More".

    "Cameron Beierle Does Eddings Justice"
    If you could sum up Sorceress of Darshiva in three words, what would they be?

    Pretty damn awesome


    Which character – as performed by Cameron Beierle – was your favourite?

    He always voices Silk or Belgarath so very, very well.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, split into two halves.

    "Sorceress Of Darshiva by David Eddings"

    In this penultimate part of the "Malorian" Garion and his friends are desparate to find the ancient ritual site, where the fate of the world, and of the prince Garan will be decided. However, they are caught between two oposing armies and must escape, in order to continue their quest. More surprises are in store as an unlikely addition to their company arrives, and they must save yet more people from the fate and terror of the dark, dragons and demons. A must read for all Eddings fans.

    Story
    "Golly I love this series!"
    Where does Sorceress of Darshiva rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    At the very top


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Poledra.. She just is the bomb. I think cause she started out as a wolf. She just "has" it.


    What does Cameron Beierle bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is so talented with the diferent charaters. I really appreciate his talent


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The rags. I am glad she didn't remember


    Any additional comments?

    This series is a must for serious fantasy buffs. You will really enjoy it

    Story
    "Calling all Eddings fans!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Sorceress of Darshiva to be better than the print version?

    I have both and lost my print version. I hate moving. Listening to the character vocalizations is humorous. I sometimes disagree with the tones given to the character, but they were well played. I wish that a print version would go along with the audio version in tandem.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is only a part of the story of Garion and his families quest to right his world.


    What about Cameron Beierle’s performance did you like?

    His different voices were distinct most of the time that I did not need who said what most of the time.

    I did not especially agree with his voice for Belgarath; otherwise a masterful performance.He sounded to upper crust and British. I never thought of him in this fashion. He was a storyteller that could play many parts.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Use the book title.


    Any additional comments?

    I am a David Eddings fan. I was saddened to learn of his death several years ago. His writing style and humor will be missed.

    Story
    "One step closer."

    I think it's safe to say that Cameron Beirle has found his footing. His characterizations show almost no choppiness here and his overall narration is very crisp and clear.
    Having escaped the clutches of Emperor Zakath of Mallorea and later eliminated the strange magician Menga, revealed to in fact be the same man responsible for the attempt on Ce'Nedra's life during her pregnancy, Belgarion and company continue their pursuit of Zandramas. The trail leads into the territory of the aristocratic but courteous Melcene people. Despite all the setbacks thus far, Belgarion learns much to his surprise that he is less than a week behind Zandramas and that she, like him, must still uncover the final piece of the puzzle, that being the location of the final meeting, the mysterious and oft referred to "Place which is No More." Eventually Garion learns that this crucial information can only be found in the Book of the Seers, which is kept under close watch in the mysterious city of Kell. But reaching the holy city of the Dals will not be an easy proposition. The companions know all too well that not only are the minions of Zandramas out to hinder them, but also those of the mad sorcerer Irvon, the last living disciple of Torak. And of course Zakath himself doubtless has agents out to recapture them. A well-written tale told by a fine narrator. I couldn't put it down for long.
