Here is the bottom line. If you like David Eddings and the previous series you will like this audiobook. If you did not then you won't. Mr. Eddings work is a fairly polarizing point amongst readers. You usually either love him or hate him. I think this is a good read although it gets 3 stars because it bogs down in unnecessary details at points.
Some others did not like the narraration of the series but I am not one of them and found it enjoyable. There is nothing groundbreaking hrer, but it is a good solid comfort story.

With the knowledge of what god is a threat to the tamuli empire Sparhawk and his friends have to go out and get the one item that can fight the strength of a god. at the same time the queen starts to help the emperor overthrow his own government.
David here goes back to writing with two points of interest again. sparhawks adventure recovering the blue rose and his queens point of view as she helps uncover who is a undermining the government and how to overthrow it. this is where he excels I think. unlike his other books in the belgariad series where it was one persons story in each part here they are happening at the same time keeping things more linier.

Would you try another book written by David Eddings or narrated by Kevin Pariseau?
David Eddings is a great author and I have loved his books and read them all. but the narration is awful, I cannot recomend this to anyone.

'Domes of Fire' redefined what a perfect book was to me and this follow up is close to it's perfection with one small hiccup; a small part of this book retcon's the first trilogy to tie it better with this trilogy,. The first brief element of this retcon was brilliant fixing my main complaint with 'The Sapphire Rose', however subsequent elements seem to be too perfectly moulded, not crafted but almost forced. It's such a small element in a book where the characters, setting, pacing and direction makes this a most read AFTER 'Domes of Fire'.
