This is a fun fantasy adventure. It is Book #2 of the Belgariad. I have not read Book #1 Pawn of Prophecy but this book contains a prologue, which I am assuming filled me in. The main character, Garion, is a 13 or 14 year-old-boy and acts like it. His "grandfather" and "aunt" have set out with him and a band of interesting characters to save the world--in this case to try to prevent the bad guys from waking an evil god. They pass through a number of kingdoms facing their own problems that are being exacerbated by the bad guys. The band picks up a few additons and finds out more information about what is happening and Garion learns more about himself as they go. There is no conclusion in this book. There are 5 books in the Belgariad.

Meghan The prologue to book two is different from the prologue to book one. The prologues set the historical stage for their respective books, but do not fill the reader in on what they have missed previously. While I doubt you need the background of Book One for the following books to make sense, it should be understood that there is information missed if you skip around in the series.

Fake Name I thought I got it pretty well without reading book 1. Garion was on a farm, magical aunt and uncle, leave with quest group... honestly, there's nothing here new enough to require reading book 1. I never once felt lost while reading the first 50 pages or so of QoS (as far as I got).
