The infant son of Garion and Ce'Nedra had been foully kidnapped. And thus, they begin the great quest to rescue the child, with the immortal Belgarath the Sorcerer, his daughter Polgara the Sorceress, and inevitably the little Drasnian, Silk. Guided by the Orb of the god Aldur, their way leads through the foul swamps of Nyissa, then into the lands of the Murgos where they must face a horrible danger to not only themselves, but to all of mankind. For the Dark Prophesy had not vanished when Garion slew the evil god Torak. Instead, it had fled to Zandramas, who planned to use the child in a rite that would insure that Dark would triumph over Light. Thus continues the epic quest, across new Lands and among strange peoples.

This is the first book in a continuation series by David Eddings. I thoroughly enjoyed the first series (5 books)and was hopeful that the characters would be the same in this saga- they were. I have completed this series as well and I feel that it has lived up to the first. Some people might not like the fact that it is very parallel to the first, but I still enjoyed it. It does not have the continuous action that a lot of fantasy authors have, but character and plot development keep me hooked. I am very sorry that this ended David Eddings writings of Belgarath and his crew because I feel as though I knew them like a family due to the quality writing style of the author and reading style of Cameron Bierely.
