First Line Friday
This is my first time doing First Line Friday.
I am hoping that this will be a fun post where I can share the first line of a book and you, might find a new book to read. I will be sharing books from my personal library as well as from arcs (Advanced Reader Copies) that will be published soon.
Head over to Hoarding Books to see who else is participating!
The book for this Friday is:
The Pawn of Prophechy (Book One of the Belgariad)
The First Line is:
“The first thing the boy Garion remembered was the kitchen at Faldor’s farm.”
Synopsis from Goodreads:
A magnificent epic 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!
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 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?
For a while his dreams of innocence were safe, untroubled by knowledge of his strange heritage. For a little while…
