Synopsis (Amazon):  Long ago, the Storyteller claimed, in this first book of THE BELGARIAD, the evil god Torak 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 Garion did not believe in such stories. 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 know...?

Review:  Even though I had such bad luck with another series by this author, I decided to try again.  I guess I have found an author I just can't read.  This book was boring.  I probably could have finished it, but since the series is 10 books long, why would I want to?

Rating:  0 / 10
