THE DRIVE OF PROPHECY
The quest was over. 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. On the outcome of that dread duel rested the destiny of the world. Now, accompanied by his grandfather, the ancient sorcerer Belgarath, Garion headed toward the City of Endless Night, where Torak awaited him.
To the south, his fiancée, the princess Ce'Nedra, led the armies of the West in a desperate effort to divert the forces of Torak's followers from the man she loved.
The Prophecy drove Garion on. But it gave no answer to the question that haunted him: How does a man kill an immortal God?
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!
David Eddings [The Belgariad series] -- 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.

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.
