Pawn of Prophecy ~~ David Eddings


Description
Pawn of Prophecy by David Eddings
WHILE THE DARK GOD SLEPT

Long ago, so the Storyteller claimed, the evil God Torak sought dominion and drove men and Gods to war. But Belgarath the Sorcerer led men to reclaim the Orb that protected men of the West. So long as it lay at Riva, the prophecy went, men would be safe.

But that was only a story, and Garion did not believe in magic dooms, even though the dark man without a shadow had haunted him for years. Brought up on a quiet farm by his Aunt Poi, how could he know that the Apostate planned to wake dread Torak, or that he would be led on a quest of unparalleled magic and danger by those he loved--but did not know? For a while, his dreams of innocence were safe, untroubled by knowledge of his strange heritage. For a little while...

Thus begins the first book of The Belgariad, a magnificent epic of immense scope, set against a history of seven thousand years, of the struggles of Gods and Kings and men--of strange lands and events--of fate and a prophecy that must be fulfilled!
