Long ago, so the Storyteller claimed, the evil god Torak sought dominion and drove men and gods to war. But Belgrath the Sorcerer led men to reclaim the Orb that protected the West. So long as it lay at Riva, the prophecy went, men would be safe. That was only a story, and Garion did not believe in magic dooms, even though the man without a shadow had haunted him for years. Brought up on a quiet farm by his Aunt Pol, 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 truly know.

For yet a little while, his dreams of innocence remained safe, untroubled by knowledge of his strange heritage. For a little while... thus begins The Belgariad, an epic fantasy of immense scope set against a history of 7,000 years. It tells of the struggles between ancient gods and mighty Kings, and of men in strange lands facing fated events, all bound by a prophecy that must be fulfilled.

    " I didn't love it as much as I remember doing when I was a teenager, but I still enjoyed it. It's the classic quest, and nothing about this telling of it strikes me as especially noteworthy or unusual, but it's a credible version of the classic tale. "

    " A terrific first book in the series, definitely hooked me for the long haul. Its just simple fantasy story, but that is absolutely what I wanted to read. I love the idea of a band of warriors/specialists wandering on an adventure to save the fate of the world. Ringers who are specialists and a motley crew, but together they make the most formidable band of heroes. It was clear from the first chapter who everyone 'really' was, but the ride is what we are in for on these stories. My favorite part about this was the story of the beginning of time, which definitely set the tone for the book. I also enjoyed having legends along for the ride. All in all, a good book and great start to the series. 3 1/2 stars! "
