Pawn of Prophecy

Pawn of Prophecy (The Belgariad, #1)Pawn of Prophecy by David Eddings

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another story where a young boy is thrust into a world he doesn't understand. Although the protagonist remains pretty ignorant throughout the story, the answers to many questions are revealed to the reader. There are plenty left unanswered though, which makes me eager to read the next book. I liked the world that was created and the supporting cast seemed fresh and unique even though it was comprised of common archetypes (Old Sorcerer and Sorceress, Brawler, Thief, and simple Blacksmith). A great start to a series.
