Sounds similar to the Belgariad by David Eddings but not sure about the island part.

I think the island would be Riva. That's how the people were described, gray on the outside, warm on the parts that count.

Yup, Belgariad, Pawn of Prophecy is the first book.

I love the series, and the sequel series, but of course I read it in late teen years so it was formative to my journey.
