liked it

The Pawn of Prophecy series was a page-turner, but what I guess I really mean to say is that it was pulp light fantasy in the usual tradition with a thoroughly standard plot that he liked so much he used it in whole in his next series. What stands out for me after all these years are the characters. The plot may be trite, the good vs evil thing entirely overdone and the characters themselves the most common sort of stereotypes, but Belgarath, Belgarion, Silk and Polgara still live in my memory in spite of all that.

I don't think I've read this book specifically, apparently it's a prequel to the other two series. So take my comments, such as they are, as applying to the first series.
