Publisher's Summary

Best-selling authors David and Leigh Eddings welcome fans back to the time before The Belgariad and The Malloreon series. Join them as they chronicle that fateful conflict between two mortally opposed Destinies, in a monumental war of men and kings and gods.
When the world was young and Gods still walked among their mortal children, a headstrong orphan boy set out to explore the world. Thus began the extraordinary adventures that would mold that youthful vagabond into a man and the man into the finely honed instrument of Prophecy known to all the world as Belgarath the Sorcerer.
Then came the dark day when the Dark God Torak split the world asunder, and the God Aldur and his disciples began their monumental labor to set Destiny aright. Foremost among their number was Belgarath. His ceaseless devotion was foredoomed to cost him that which he held most dear - even as his loyal service would extend through echoing centuries of loss, of struggle, and of ultimate triumph.

Cameron Beierle the Best Narrator

Any additional comments?

I read this book when it was first released. I love all of Eddings books of the 2 series this book relates to. Back in 2013 I bought this audio when it had a different narrator. It was ok, did not like some of his pronunciations but put up with it anyway. I just found out that this audiobook has been re-released with Cameron Beierle narrating and I HAD to buy it!! He is the best.

Beierle is best

I'm very glad that he got to do Belgarath. I enjoyed the previous eddings narrations he did and was pleasantly surprised to find this book had come out and that he kept to the same voices nearly a decade later. I wonder if he's going to be doing Polgara at all...

good story ruined by poor performer

I have enjoyed the works by David Eddings for many years but a health condition now means I have to rely on audio books. I do not know who thought Cameron Beierlie was a suitable person to provide audio but I can only think they must be deaf. A good story ruined by an appalling reader who cannot even maintain one accent per character making it almost impossible to follow conversations!

Brilliance

I've always LOVED David Eddings work. I've read and re-read his work many times. So many in fact that during the audiobook I actually knew some of the sentences word for word. It is with beautiful wonderful delight that the narrator exceeded my expectations which is amazing considering high those expectations where. If you are a fan of David Eddings work or if this is your first experience (if it is I'd recommend the Belgriad series before starting on this) then make the time to get this audiobook. It sets a high bar for all other works.
