I read both the Belgariad and Malloreon as a teenager. I still enjoy the story now, although some of the repetition between the two and the simplicity if some of Eddings' unidimensional characters grates a little. However, the main downside of these recordings is the narration. Cameron Beirle's voices detract from the story and while unlike some people I still find it listenable it is a shame that this is the only version. Can't help but wonder what a full cast version would be like.
Garion and his friends are captive, in the palace of Zakath, emporor of Maloria. They must escape, and fight the demon lord, terrorising the city of Karanda, and also intent on siezing prince Garan, to use him in a right, that would mean that the dark prophecy would reign supreme. More surprises and shocks are in store as Garion and his friends battle on, amidst the heartake of not knowing whether they will see the little prince again. An unforgetable read, as all of David Eddings' books are.
