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.

Loved the economic chicanery subplot by Mallorean army procurement of buying lowly beans at set price & pocketing the profit scam or Silk turning the tables by controlling the entire crop & selling to greedy consortium.
Ditto Belgarath explained to belated alchemy university professor the economic implication of his co-worker's accidentally discovering fiberglass or not recovering the notes.
Author entertainingly broke tropes.
Seeress arm-twisting Emperor aka "the Empty one" into joining the group or artfully explaining history repeating for a reason.
Belgarath argued with his patron god on protecting Mallorean army from demon war sideshow.
Emperor could not throw Silk in jail in theory because Silk increased tax revenues in formerly stagnant economy.
Nice ending against the Demon Lords' meddling.
