Read reviews from the world's largest community for readers. Captives of His Imperial Majesty Zandramas had stolen Ki.
Then a horrible, fatal plague struck the city of Mal Zeth, closing it against all traffic in or out. In this fourth book of The Malloreon , Garion and his companions continue their desperate search for Zandramas, the Child of Dark and abductor of Garion's baby son, Geran. Led by the Orb from Mallorea to the island of Melcena, they discover the place where the Sardion once rested and also find Senji, a self-taught wizard whose undamaged copy of the Ashabine Oracles carries a message for Garion from the evil god Torak.
As Zandramas' intention to fulfil the Dark Destiny becomes clear, Garion and his friends know that they must travel to Kell. But the friends are not alone in their search as the prophecies of Cyradis, the Seeress of Kell, begin to be fulfilled. Troubles and delays continued to mount as Garion, Belgarath, Polgara, and the company pursued Zandramas across the known world.
Possessed by the Dark Destiny, she had stolen Garion's infant son to use in a ritual that would destroy all that was fair and good. Always the quest led onward, across and beyond the continent of Mallorea, where the evil God Torak had once been supreme until Garion slew him. And always Zandramas was one step ahead of them.
The armies she had raised, led by a Demon Lord, threatened to cut them off on one side; on the other, the forces of Emperor Zakath were seeking to capture them. Zandramas was taunting them and spying on them, flying over in the form of the great dragon, while the Dark Destiny changed her and etched away the last of her touches of humanity.
Somehow, as the Seeress of Kell had warned them, they had to be at the Place Which Is No More for the ritual at the same time as Zandramas, if they were to have a chance to defeat her evil schemes.
Now in the final stages of their quest for his son, Garion and his companions travel to Kell to consult the only undamaged copy of the Mallorean Gospels. For centuries the Seers have guarded this book from the Grolims and even had their wizards put a curse of blindness on any Grolim who tried to enter Kell.
So, as proclaimed in Guardians of the West , Belgarion the Godslayer sets out with those who must join him: But Zandramas the Sorceress will not be outdone. Though she may not enter Kell she still has young Geran and should she reach the final meeting place with him, then Garion must slay his son or their world will be no more. Time was running out for Garion and his companions in their quest to recover Garion's infant son and heir.
If they could not locate the Place Which Is No More, Zandramas, the Child of Dark, would use Garion's son in a rite that would raise the Dark Prophecy to eternal dominion over all the world - and all the universe! Only the Seeress of Kell could reveal the site of that mysterious place - and that she could do only once Garion and Polgara had fulfilled an ancient prophecy in the mountain fastness of the Seers. Kell was closed to Zandramas - but her dark magics could enable her to force the knowledge of the location of the site of that final meeting from the mind of one of Garion's party.
Determined to claim the world for the Dark God, she laid her traps and dispatched her foul minions. But Garion would let nothing stand between him and his son, well aware that the fate of the world depended on his successfully completing the quest that fate had laid out for him at the beginning of time.

The book also depicts the life of Errand, Polgara's ward.
During his years under her care, Errand displays near- omniscience ; this puzzles Polgara and Belgarath. During the same years, Errand encounters a lesson learned telepathically from an ancient tree and two contacts with people important to his destiny. The inciting action of the story occurs when Garion and Errand are both summoned by the Orb of Aldur, and the Voice of Prophecy warns them "Beware Zandramas!
Thereafter Garion and Belgarath seek to discover the identity and purpose of Zandramas through records of ancient, dubious prophecies. Ultimately, Garion learns that he is still a figure of prophecy and bears the responsibility of defeating Torak's successor, the "Child of Dark".
Subsequent to Garion's discovery, his regent Brand is murdered by assassins sent to kill Ce'Nedra and her newborn son Geran. The assassins are traced to the Bear-Cult, a legion of ethnocentric fanatics dedicated to reunification of the empire divided among the sons of Garion's ancestor King Cherek. In response, Garion and other descendants of Cherek destroy the Bear-Cult, but are unable to prevent the abduction of Prince Geran. Harakan escapes shortly after the revelation of his true identity.
With these companions he must travel to the Place Which Is No More for the final meeting between Light and Dark that will decide the fate of the world. When all objections are overcome, the company assembles and departs. In this book, Belgarion and his fellow travelers learn more about the murderous woman Zandramas and of her minion, a white-eyed Angarak named Naradas.
During their stay in Nyissa they recruit Sadi, a eunuch expelled from Queen Salmissra's court. Sadi convinces the group to pose as slavers searching for escaped runaways as the Mallorean army ravages Cthol Murgos. When they enter the wastelands of Cthol Murgos, they are captured by the desert-dwelling Dagashi and given the task of secreting an assassin through the Mallorean army lines.
Eventually, they arrive in the palace of the King of the Murgos, Urgit, and discover, to Kheldar's surprise, that his father had sired the Murgo King while on a diplomatic mission many years before.
Urgit, upon learning that Kheldar is his half-brother, arranges for the group to travel south to the Isle of Verkat. Before they leave the city, they find that the Dagashi assassin is in fact Harakan. Garion and Harakan duel with swords until Harakan realizes he is about to lose and resorts to sorcery to save himself.
The group then sails south. En route, their ship wrecks and they must travel to the coast on foot. On the coast, Toth tells them that Cyradis has arranged a boat to take them to the island.
On the island, they are directed to Ashaba, Torak's ruined castle. Before they can leave the island, Mallorean soldiers come looking for them, and Cyradis, who must abet both Necessities equally, tells Toth to alert the guards to their presence. The book ends with the company being sent to Emperor Zakath's Imperial Stronghold. At the beginning of this chapter, Belgarion and his fellow travellers are brought to Mallorea.
Gradually, Zakath and Garion become friends. When a sudden plague spreads, necessitating quarantine, the questing party escape the city so as to continue their journey.
In escape, they are joined by the jester Feldegast actually Belgarath's 'brother' Beldin in disguise , with whom they approach Ashaba. Problems arise when they confirm the report of demons under the Demon Lord Nahaz, who has turned the sorcerer Urvon insane. Reaching Ashaba, Garion is tricked into believing that he sees Zandramas and his son meeting with Urvon and charges into the throne room.
Beldin, on seeing Urvon and his man Harakan, assumes his true form; this starts a battle with Urvon's forces, which ultimately results in Harakan's death. Nahaz faces the group of sorcerers and the Orb, ready to fight; but when Eriond comes to stand with Garion, the Demon Lord flees, carrying Urvon with him.
The group then continues east.
Travelling through the demon-infested countryside, and seeing horrors such as women impregnated by demons the births usually resulting in the mother's death , the group encounters Zandramas, who attempts to coerce Ce'Nedra within killing distance, until Poledra, Polgara's mother and Belgarath's wife, forces Zandramas to retreat. The party enters the Melcene Empire , where they discover that the Sardion, the moral opposite of the Orb of Aldur, was once kept in an undersea cave where traces of its power still resonate.
Upon reaching the University at Melcena, Belgarath finds an unmutilated copy of the Ashabine Oracles, which he has sought, and decides that the party must go to Kell to learn of the location of "The Place That Is No More".
Garion, in the same book, sees that in his sole moment of sanity , Torak specifically addressed Belgarion, demanding that if need be he should destroy the world, even kill his own son, rather than let Zandramas complete her plans.
This reflects a similar warning made by Cyradis in Guardians of the West. Having achieved this knowledge, the group return to Mallorea and travel overland. At some point thereafter, a suggestion is made that Torak's existence was an aberration and that another God shall appear to take his place. The party is recaptured by Zakath, who threatens to take Garion back to Mal Zeth with his companions as collateral.
At Beldin's request, Cyradis persuades him to release the party, offering herself as a hostage; Zakath does so and joins their quest. Shortly thereafter, Poledra joins them in the guise of a wolf , bringing an orphaned cub later domesticated by Ce'Nedra. Her identity is concealed from both characters and reader until the next book. The demons go after Garion's group, sensing the Orb 's presence, but Aldur infuses Durnik with his own powers, and he defeats and banishes Nahaz.
