The Belgariad Book #3
Ce'Nedra, Imperial Princess of Tolnedra, was confused. Everyone knows the tales of the Orb protecting the West from the evil God Torak are just silly legends. But here she is, forced to join a dangerous quest to recover that stolen Orb. No one believes in sorcery, but Garion's aunt and grandfather seem to be the fabled sorcerers Polgara and Belgarath. Even young Garion is learning to do socerey. Garion, a farm boy is totally unsuitable for an Imperial Princess. Yet, for some reason she has the urge to brush back his hair, and comfort him. Now he is going to a strange evil tower to face some horrible, powerful magician, and she cannot be there to watch over him. He might be killed, and she may never see him again.

Great series

I like this series a lot. It can move a bit slowly at times, but the entire series is better than most I have either read or listened to.

A solid fantasy story, great voice, slightly distracting accents

A little slow in parts but the characters were charming and I enjoyed getting to know them. I found the readers voice very pleasing and easy to listen to. The use of modern world accents was distracting to me though. Ce'Nedra’s accent was particularly odd.

Great character development and flow. Not very much action at times, but still continued to keep my interest.
