From Publishers Weekly This final volume of the quintet begun with Guardians of the West finds Belgarion, the Child of Light, racing to his cataclysmic and long-prophesied meeting with Zandramas, Child of the Dark, which will determine the future of the world. His small band--consisting of, among others, his wife, Ce'Nedra; members of his shape-changing family; and his former enemy, Zakath, Emperor of Mallorea--is joined by Cyradis, the blind seeress of Kell, who is foreordained to decide which will win, the forces of Light or those of Dark. From the mysterious city of Kell they are directed to Perivor, bastion of chivalry, where they will learn the location of the meeting place, Korim, the Place Which Is No More. After various adventures and encounters with Zandramas's agents, the final battle of wills is joined, with Belgarion becoming privy to astonishing revelations about some of his companions. This volume is not for a newcomer to Eddings's series; while it ties up loose ends and brings the hero and his friends to a happy conclusion, the meeting that the previous four books have been foreshadowing is anticlimatic.

From Kirkus Reviews Fifth and final chunk of Eddings's enormous Good vs. Evil fantasy (most recently Sorceress of Darshiva, 1989). Finally, then, we have reached the showdown in the Place Which is No More. Cyradis, the blind title character, must choose between the Light (Garion's candidate, Eriond the godlike) and the Dark (the evil sorceress Zandramas has selected Geran, Garion's young son, as her representative). Naturally, the fate of the entire universe is at stake. The role of the good guys is to counter and neutralize the plots and deceptions of Zandramas, so that Cyriadis can make an honest choice. No prizes for guessing which she chooses. Various Gods, Orbs, dragons, and whatnots embroider the proceedings; Eddings's usual jolly banter enlivens the dialogue; yet the showdown--promised through five long, long novels--amounts to nothing much. Fans and nonfans alike will rejoice that the series is concluded at last. -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP.
