Random House, Inc.
Here David Eddings continues his bestselling The Malloreon in this story of ancient, opposing Destinies battling for control of a world and for the fate of all Gods and men.

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 for a ritual that would destroy all that men valued.

She was always one step ahead, taunting and spying on them, flying over in the form of a great dragon. Her armies, led by a Demon Lord, threatened on one side; on the other were the forces of Emperor Zakath, seeking to capture them.

Somehow, as the Seeress of Kell had warned, they had to be at the Place Which Is No More for the ritual at the same time as Zandramas, or face disaster. 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.
