THE ENDLESS QUEST
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 the 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.
But where that might be they still had no clue.
David Eddings (1931–2009) was an American author. Eddings' first books were general fiction and sold moderately. He later switched to writing epic fantasy novels and achieved best-selling status. David Eddings' wife, Leigh Eddings (1937–2007), is uncredited as co-author on many of his early books, but he later acknowledged that she contributed to them all.
Born in Spokane, Washington, and raised in the Puget Sound area north of Seattle, he received his bachelor of arts degree from Reed College in Portland, Oregon, in 1954, and a master of arts degree from the University of Washington in 1961. He served in the United States Army, worked as a buyer for the Boeing Company, and was also a grocery clerk and a college English teacher.
