Preview — Castle of Wizardry by David Eddings. I listened to the audiobook narrated by Cameron Beierle and he did an excellent job with the series. Ce’Nedra immediately assumes she has been jilted by Garion and destroys her apartments within the Citadel, while Polgara knows the truth and proceeds to more effectively destroy everything in her rooms, and causes a titanic thunderstorm overhead. Thereafter Mister Wolf follows an invisible trail through several regions until they are arrested.
