Overview

END OF THE QUEST

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.

This 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!

    Finally the series gets interesting

    After the disappointment of the first three books we come to this book. The fourth book of the series is by far the best and is actually pretty interesting to read. The characters are now more familiar and the dialogue doesn't seem so corny. There are still a lot of unanswered questions that I do not think will ever be answered, but the story is getting much better and enjoyable.

    Unquestionably Great

    Castle of Wizardry is my favorite book in the Belgariad series. When asked why this is, I had to admit it was probably because of the character Ce'Nedra and her growth in this installment. Aside from Liselle, I'd say that Ce'Nedra is my favorite character of the series, and seeing her grow as a character (not only through the series, but in this book especially) was definitely worth the read.

    Great

    I love this book. I love its characters: from the thief, Silk, to the sorceress, Polgara, to the protagonist, Garion. The characters however (after 4 books) start falling in a repeating pattern and the only thing that keep you reading is the hilarity they evoke as they react with problems.

    Terrific

    It is a amazing book that constantly keeps your attention and leaves you hanging on to the edge of your seat. You grow to love the characters and hate their enemys. Over all is a terrific story though a little gory at times I would recommend it to teenagers and adults.

    So spiffy!

    I think that this whole series is very interesting. Great for those who like science fiction and adventure. David Eddings captures those who read and enchants them!
