Publisher's Summary

The RiftWar is done. But a fearsome army of trolls and renegade humans, emboldened by the drug of destruction, has risen in strength from the ashes of defeat. There is one, however, who defies the call to battle....

New York Times best-selling fantasist Raymond E. Feist returns to a beleaguered realm of wonders and magic - where war is an enduring legacy; where blood swells the rivers and nourishes the land. Attend to this hitherto untold chapter in the violent history of Midkemia - a towering saga of great conflicts, brave acts, and insidious intrigues. It is the story of a traitor who rejects the brutality of his warlike kind and casts his lot with the human targets of their fierce aggression. It tells of mysterious deaths and sinister machinations - and signs of a time when the fate of many civilizations rested in the able, unfaltering hands of RiftWar veterans Squire Locklear and cunning thief-turned-squire Jimmy the Hand. It chronicles the powerful awakening of Owyn - apprentice magician of untried strengths - and celebrates the selfless achievements of Pug, the great sorcerer of two worlds. Welcome now to astonishing new corners of a world you have not yet fully explored - and prepare to experience true excitement, blood chilling terror...and the triumph born from the doom aimed at the beating heart of a kingdom.

Love Feists books

Love the books and love the narrators voice. Only thing that throws me off is the narrators pronunciation of names and places.

Books in a series...

The story is fantastic... but this is book 11ish in the series. The narrator came up with his own pronunciations instead of listening to book one and keeping the continuity.

Best so far!

Of the dozen or so books by Feist I have listened to, I would say this was the best so far; A few small mysteries running in-tandem with the main story, favorite characters returning, and even an ending which was both good and slightly sad. Looking forward to tge rest of this series.

Fills a need but not for me

If you are in need of more questing and your life is filled with a paucity of bravado, swaggering and staggering, then this book is certainly made to order. I have positive recollections of the Riftwar series. But now I am wanting more not less touching on the human experience, beyond “who will attack me next”.

Pronunciation is important

This is a good book from one of the best fantasy series available. Unfortunately the narrator mispronounced most of the names and locations in this book. It was very distracting and detracted from the immersion in the story which is actually very interesting. Disappointing is a good single word summary of the performance...

Overperformed

While I appreciate the narrators effort and skill, it is a bit overdone and distracting when it comes to character voices. It’s not a relaxing listen and the interpretation of the characters tamber and accents are quite distracting.

Otherwise it’s a fantastic story if a bit predictable and not as compelling as the Riftwar Saga. Still a fun read.
