David Eddings - This is like Bonanza, or like I Love Lucy. There will be other fantasy series, but there can never be another that's so seminal, that so captures the essence of fantasy. Big Dave and Little Leigh grow their heroes from the ground up, and they grow the best. I'd owned the hard copy before but was pleased to get it in eBook form. I re-read the whole series and found it as engaging as I did years ago. I particularly enjoyed the characters, though, admittedly, they were stereotypes of the genre.

Enchanters' End Game. Author : David Eddings

Enchanters' End Game. Author : David Eddings. Here is the brilliant conclusion to the epic of The Belgariad, which began in Pawn of Prophecy-a novel of fate, strange lands, and a Prophecy that must be fulfilled-the resolution of the war of men, Kings, and Gods that had spanned seven thousand years!

The Belgariad is a five-book fantasy epic written by David Eddings, following the journey of protagonist Garion and his companions, first to recover a sacred stone, and later to use it against antagonist Torak.

The Belgariad is a five-book fantasy epic written by David Eddings, following the journey of protagonist Garion and his companions, first to recover a sacred stone, and later to use it against antagonist Torak. Volumes include: Pawn of Prophecy (1982). Queen of Sorcery (1982). Magician's Gambit (1983). Castle of Wizardry (1984). Enchanters' End Game (1984).

Enchanter’s End Game delivered a strong finish to the Belgariad. Not strong enough to prompt orgasmic reflexes, but strong enough to earn a respectable nod and healthy snap and sigh as I close the book on the last page. Honourable mention to resident evil guy, Torak. Lesser known fact: Leigh Eddings co-authored this book! The reason she did not appear on the cover, or even get a mention, was that the publisher, Lester Del Rey, believed back in 1982 that multi-authorships were a problem and that it would be better if David Edding's name alone appeared on the books. Sure, Lester, whatever.

Enchanter's end game. Excerpts from The Book of Torak~. HEAR ME, YE Angaraks, for I am Torak, Lord of Lords and King of Kings. And finally, for Leigh, my beloved wife, whose hand and thought have touched every page, and who has joined me in this making - even as she joins me in all that I do. PROLOGUE. Bow before my Name and worship me with prayers and with sacrifices, for I am your God and I have dominion over all the realms of the Angaraks.

Discover the magic of The Malloreon–David Eddings’s acclaimed series, the sequel to his bestselling The Belgariad.

The Belgariad, Vol. Two: Castle of Wizardry, Enchanters' End Game (The Belgariad, Discover the magic of The Malloreon–David Eddings’s acclaimed series, the sequel to his bestselling The Belgariad. Now the first three Malloreon books appear in a single volume, taking us on an epic quest across strange lands among gods, kings, sorcer.

Enchanter’s End Game is the fifth and final book in The Belgariad, an epic fantasy series by David Eddings. The Orb of Aldur was restored. And once again, with the crowning of Garion, there was a descendant of Riva Iron-grip to rule as Overlord of the West. But the Prophecy was unfulfilled. In the east, the evil God Torak was about to awaken and seek dominion. Somehow, Garion had to face the God, to kill or be killed.

HEAR ME, YE Angaraks, for I am Torak, Lord of Lords and King of Kings. Each Destiny was Absolute, and in that final meeting, all that was divided should be made one. In that instant, all that was, all that is, and all that was yet to be should be gathered into one Purpose.

Title: Enchanter’s Endgame Published: 1984 Synopsis: Garion, Belgarath . Eddings finishes with a sprint. Whatever pacing issues exist for Castle of Wizardry, they ain’t in Enchanter’s Endgame

Title: Enchanter’s Endgame Published: 1984 Synopsis: Garion, Belgarath, and Silk are traveling to Mallorea to face the evil god, Torak, in one last battle  . Whatever pacing issues exist for Castle of Wizardry, they ain’t in Enchanter’s Endgame. The story is fluid and the mood is set with the opening scene of Garion and his friends leaving Drasnia. The tone of the story is a little more dark and serious, but then that’s appropriate. As far as they all know, this is the end of the world for one side of the conflict. I still have the original copy I was giving back in the ‘80s.

'Come, Belgarion, Child of Light. I await thee in the City of Night ...' A confrontation that has been prophesied for thousands of years is racing towards a conclusion. For as Garion comes into his heritage as the Rivan King, Overlord of the West, and takes up the Orb of Aldur to protect the land, Torak awakes and his evil hordes of Murgo soldiers and Grolim priests march in his name. While the princess Ce'Nedra mobilises the forces of the free lands to repel the invaders, Garion heads for his duel with Torak - a duel upon which the fate of the whole world depends...

I read this series several times when I was younger and I was glad when they finally released a Kindle version. My only complaint is all the typos in the kindle version. For instance they consistently use the word Mallorca instead of Mallorea. It kind of pisses me off that no one has bothered to proof read this for typos before releasing.

The conclusion of one of my favorite fantasy world journeys. I recently have been listening to the Mallorean on Audible, because of course, I can't get the books on Kindle. Listening to the books have changed the way I viewed certain sections. Eddings work becomes much more predictable and character personalities a bit caricature like. Still, I will buy the whole set of the Mallorean on Kindle when it comes out.

I really enjoyed this entire series and have bought multiple copies to give to friends and family. I highly recommend it for those who enjoy fantasy. I also really enjoy that the books Polgara the Sorceress and Belgarath the Sorcerer retell the tale from other perspectives.

Everyone has their own preferences. Maybe read one of the overview novels to see if you are interested. I have always felt they were great books, but then again there aren't too many books I have met and disliked (except romance), I just liked these more than most.

I noticed that there were some negative reviews for this book and I was kind of surprised and how cutting some of those reviews were. Especially considering these people took the time to read 5 entire novels and then cut them all down. Why would you continue reading a series if you didn't like the first 4 books either (as stated in many of the reviews)? I guess I am just confused. I don't consider modern art to be art (a bunch or prescription medicine bottles in an open medicine cabinet is art?) so I don't go to modern art exhibits.

Also, if you look hard enough, you can see the likenesses between any two things quite clearly.

This is the last book in one of my all time favorite series. I first read it 30 years ago and have re-read it at least once a year since then. I see I have that in common with a lot of the other reviewers. To me, that is the hallmark of a great vs a good book...that you can read it again and again with the same pleasure you experienced the first time. This series is one of the great ones. If you haven't had the delight of reading it I highly recommend you do so. I envy you being able to experience it for the first time. Warning though..it is addictive. But, with these books, then the second series the Mallorean, Belgarath the Sorceror and Polgara the Sorceress there is plenty of material to indulge in.

Love this series and am reading it for the second time. I have the paperback books from 20 years ago but now I only use a Kindle. Unfortunately there was an issue with getting this on Kindle and I had to stop reading it about 3 months ago as you could only get it if you payed for the subscription service. Apparently that changed and I could finally finish reading it. Now it seems the same issue is occuring on the next series "The Malloreon". How long will I need to wait on this?

I first read "The Belgariad" series in the 1980's (if memory serves). Since then I have re-read this series every 5 years or so - it is just that well written, in my opinion and the story line is pretty engaging, I think. Every now & then I want to read a really good Fantasy book - this is my go-to series for that reason.

Enchanter's End game, part of the Belgariad, was a very enjoyable read. I'd owned the hard copy before but was pleased to get it in eBook form. I re-read the whole series and found it as engaging as I did years ago. I particularly enjoyed the characters, though, admittedly, they were stereotypes of the genre. They were meant to be though and reading their reactions to the same stimuli from each stereotype's POV was entertaining.

This was the final book of 5 and brought together most of the loose ends to resolution.

All in all, I really like the book as much as I had when I read it many years ago. The same can be said for the whole series.
I love this book, but the Kindle edition is riddled with typos, which is true of all the Belgariad digital editions. I have started the Malloreon, and while I'm only about a quarter of the way through the first book, it seems to be a cleaner copy. I'm not sure why the Belgariad seems to be typeset from a bad OCR scan and the Malloreon got a clean digital copy, but there you are.

Kindle difficulties aside, this is a fun read. I like this book best out of the series, because it's where the characters all seem to come into their own, and the conclusion of the story is a satisfactory end to a fun series. This isn't a heavy or complex series, but it's enjoyable all the same.
