The quest was over. The Orb of Aldur was restored. And once again, with the crowning of Garion, there was a descendant of Riva Iron-grip to rule as Overlord of the West.
But the Prophecy was unfulfilled. In the east, the evil God
Torak was about to awaken and seek dominion. Somehow, Garion had to
face the God, to kill or be killed. On the outcome of that dread duel
rested the destiny of the world. Now, accompanied by his grandfather,
the ancient sorcerer Belgarath, Garion headed toward the City of Endless
Night, where Torak awaited him.
To the south, his fiancée, the
princess Ce'Nedra, led the armies of the West in a desperate effort to
divert the forces of Torak's followers from the man she loved.
The Prophecy drove Garion on. But it gave no answer to the question that haunted him: How does a man kill an immortal God?
is the brilliant conclusion to the epic of The Belgariad, which began
in Pawn of Prophecy--a novel of fate, strange lands, and a Prophecy that
must be fulfilled--the resolution of the war of men, Kings, and Gods
that had spanned seven thousand years! From Goodreads.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this Belgariad series. If you like fantasy, a few love stories and some humorous bantering among friends, this series of books has it all. Definitely worth a read. Having read this series I might check the 2 sequels about Belgarath and Polgara.
