It had all begun with the theft of the Orb that had so long protected the West from the evil God Torak. Before that, Garion had been a simple farm boy. Afterward, he discovered that his aunt was really the Sorceress Polgara and his grandfather was Belgarath, the Eternal Man. Then, on the long quest to recover the Orb, Garion found to his dismay that he, too, was a sorcerer.
Now, at last, the Orb was regained and the quest was
nearing its end. Of course, the questors still had to escape from this
crumbling enemy fortress and flee across a desert filled with Murgo
soldiers searching for them, while Grolim Hierarchs strove to destroy
them with dark magic. Then, somehow, they must manage to be in Riva with
the Orb by Erastide. After that, however, Garion was sure that his part
in these great events would be finished.
But the Prophecy still held future surprises for Garion--and for the little princess Ce'Nedra.
continues the magnificent epic of The Belgariad, begun in Pawn of
Prophecy, Queen of Sorcery, and Magician's Gambit--a fantasy set against
a background of the war of men, Kings, and Gods that had spanned seven
thousand years--a novel of fate, strange lands, and a prophecy that must
be fulfilled! From Goodreads.
It is getting close to the end of the quest. I like the way the kings and the group of people we follow try to wind each other up all the time. They all also spy on each other and everybody knows it.
