Pawn of Prophecy - David Eddings

By the numbers.

Get farm boy. Check.
Know powerful wizard. Check.
Need magic thingo. Check.
Get helpers. Check.
Fight dark lord. Check.
Get away unscathed. Check.

Or, if you are young and haven't come across anything else, this will seem better at the time. It won't seem better if you only read it because of having read everything else and it was your sister than had it.

Anyway, absolutely standard ordinary fantasy offering that is very light and designed to appeal to a female audience.

2.5 out of 5
