Publisher's Summary

From King of Ashes to Queen of Storms, it’s all built up to this—the thrilling conclusion to legendary New York Times best-selling author Raymond E. Feist’s epic Firemane saga.

War has swept across Marquensas. Ruthless raiders have massacred the inhabitants of Beran’s Hill, including Gwen, the beloved wife of Declan Smith. Hollow of heart, his hopes burned to ashes, Declan swears to track down and destroy the raiders, an ambition shared by Baron Daylon Dumarch, whose family was massacred as they fled the capital.

Meanwhile Hava, whose gift for piracy has seen her acquire the treasure ship Borzon’s Black Wake and the swift Azhante sailing vessel, Queen of Storms, and won her the name of “the Sea Demon,” is closing in on the whereabouts of those who unleashed the murderous hordes.

Her husband, Hatushaly, the last remaining member of the ruling family of Ithrace, the legendary Firemanes, seeks to control the magical powers he has inherited. He is able now to visualize and even travel among the filaments of energies that power all existence: the furies. But will he be able to channel his magic in time to combat the deepest, darkest threat the world of Garn has ever faced?

Extremely disappointing

This series first two volumes were some of the best written books I've read in the last 10 years. Tight well written plot with interesting and memorable characters left me binge listening and feeling a profound sadness when the books came to a end. I was very excited for this new book in the series. Well its TRASH, TOTAL TRASH! I Supect that it's been farmed out and ghost written by some hack who wrote for the c.w. batwoman show, ITS THAT BAD! Around 5 hours in things totally go off the rails in favor of a cheap lasy clichéd pg-13 hackjob of a plot. It's like season 8 of game of thrones lol.

not a fan

well performed, but the story is meh. It rushed to an abrupt end and just seemed disjointed.. So many things that are interesting are introduced but then barely expanded on.

Worst of the trilogy

I wasn’t a fan of the ending. The last half of the book felt slapped together and didn’t tie things up in a way I liked. Performance was great and the characters amazing.

Strange ending to what had been a good story.

This was a disappointing ending to this series. It introduces a new subplot but doesn’t build upon it in an interesting way. What was the main narrative is essentially wasted and tied in an unsatisfying bow. Honestly this last and novel is by far the weakest in the series. The ending was bad. The book lacked coherence, emotion and connectivity to the main material. The writer ended the series by not utilizing the protagonist at all in the main narrative. Sad end to a series that had potential.

What a way to ruin a trilogy.

First off, let me say that I am a Feist fan, and if you have not read the Magician or the Empire (with Wurts) series, you are missing out. I enjoyed the first 2 books of the Firemane Saga. They were good, solid stories that had me looking forward to the final installment. What I received was a thrown together, half effort that challenges Game of Thrones (HBO series) for worst ending in fantasy.... ever. I understand there are times that a story does not go the way one would like (or hope) it to go. This is not that... I feel that I was cheated. The effort (and talent) disappeared in the final book and I am disappointed that this product ever made it to the public. If this is what is to be expected for his future work I will look elsewhere for my fantasy fix.

I did think Thorpe did a fine job as the narrator. Needs to add a few voices as 3-4 characters had the same voice. (I am sure that is easier said than done)

Good, but the story feels a little rushed.

I really liked the world building and character development in the first couple of books. Feist created an interesting world with enjoyable characters. The betrayal was a great backstory and I enjoyed the build up across the first two books. I liked how the first two books in series stood well on their own without any need of riftverse ties. A lot of the characters reminded of other characters from the riftverse. Balven felt a lot like old Jimmy the Hand during the serpent wars. Hatu felt a lot like Talon of the silver hawk. Ratigan felt a lot like Rupert Avery. Yet they all worked well in the books despite giving off heavy vibes of previously used characters. I personally liked Declan, Hava, and Bodia the most. They had arcs and conflicts that I found interesting. Declan’s battle trance was always something that caught my interest and left me
Waiting for further explanation.

I felt that the narrator preformed very well. He showed a great range and helped bring a lot of life to the characters. His performance kept me immersed in the story. His portrayal of Ratigan And Hava were particularly impressive to me. My only critique in regards to the narrator is when he attempted to express extreme emotion in a female tone. It just didn’t hit the mark.

SPOILERS COMING BELOW.


As much as I love tying the riftverse into this story and getting more Nakor it left the end of the book feeling a little anticlimactic and abrupt. I felt like the inclusion of the riftverse made the book feel like it needed a lot more. Like there definitely could have been another book to this series. It would have been great to have the lands of the pride lords further explored and better fleshed out. The inclusion of the dread lord left me wanting more content surrounding it. Hatus powers leave the audience begging for more. I don’t know if Feist plans on creating more content with Hatu, Bodai, Hava, and Declan but I would definitely welcome it.

Despite my criticism I deeply enjoyed both the story and the performance and as always I hope I live to see more work inside or outside of this universe from Raymond E Feist

Amazing as always

As always, Raymond E. Feist manages to tell a story about a world that is beyond epic, i will never understand how one can in such detail have you experience a journey across an entire world. Just the way Magic works is beyond impressive.
