Synopsis: In the final book of The Belgariad the journey do destroy the evil god Torak continues. Ce'Nedra leads the Western Army in a bold fight in order to create a diversion while Garion, Belgarath and Silk head to the City of Night for the final fight. The future of the world hangs in the balance.
My Thoughts: This book moves at a much faster pace than the previous books. There is more action and it follows more characters. Although this could be confusing the previous four books have spent so much time establishing each of the characters that it is easy to follow along the different strands. This also helps the pace. The conclusion of the book is not all that surprising but supremely satisfying for fans of the book. All in all the series delivers the message that as long as you do what is right you will be rewarded and those who do wrong will be punished.
"Thus concludes The Belgariad, which began with Pawn of Prophecy. And while History, unlike mortal pen, does not cease, the records beyond this point remain as yet unrevealed" (pg373)
