Castle of Wizardry represents a partial hiatus from the endless trekking all over the known world for Garion and his friends. Some of my complaints from the previous books are still present. Garion's mentors really were wasting a lot of time in training him for his roles. He finally finds out what his purpose is and why he's been caught up in world changing events, and he's still completely not ready for anything. There is some good, though rapid maturing and character growth for both Garion and Ce'Nedra. I'm also puzzled as to how Garion couldn't have seen it coming with the heavy and obvious foreshadowing put in by Mr. Eddings.
