    The second Demonwar fantasy is an exciting thriller

    Insane necromancer Belasco called up and sent demons to destroy Midkemia. However, a shaky alliance between enemies, especially Pug the Black Sorcerer of Sorcerer's Isle and the Conclave of Shadows led by field agent James Jamison defeated the Demon King Maarg and his horde (see Maarg Rides a Dread Legion). Although they won that battle, the war is far from over as Belasco has other demonic contacts ready to fight.

    In the Valley of Lost Men, Belasco regroups with Dahun the demon as they unite in a level of dark magic never tried before. Still healing physically, they have no time to do so mentally especially to grieve for so many valiant, who died in their just cause, James warns the band of Midkemia protectors that the next battle has begun. James, Pug, Amirantha the necromancer, Brandos the warlock, Sandreena the Knight-Adamandt, the Star Elven siblings, and others set out to end the latest deadly threat; none of the brave heroes and heroines expect to come back alive.

    The second Demonwar fantasy is an exciting thriller that continues the latest demonic assault on Midkemia. The story line is fast-paced and fun to follow as the various cast of heroes and the two prime villains make their magical skills and species seem genuine. Well written even long time fans wondering when Pug will start receiving medicare will think two ways about Yogi Berra's comment "deja vu all over again" as Raymond E. Feist like Mantle and Maris hits back to back home runs though his saga has that sameness feel from the previous series. Still readers will enjoy the latest battle against the demon minion.

    This Book Delivers

    After the devastating loose on Sorcerer's Isle, this book delivers more mystery, more powerful magic, and more suspense than its really great predecessor. After witnessing the unbelievably horrific dark and deadly rituals of the Black Caps, the question still remains, what is Belasco up to and how will this help him kill his brother Amirantha? Pug and his son Magnus are closer due to their dramatic lose, and the trouble with closing the portal/rift from Hub World is being dealt with by them and the Taredhel brothers. All of what the Demon Masters thought they knew about demon lore barely amounts to anything, when they try to get their hands on the one book made of living flesh that can reveal all of hell's closely guarded secrets. Sandreena's thoughts continue to be crowded with Amirantha. Hopefully the conflict she has with Amirantha will be resolved before her distracting thoughts and emotions about the warlock get her and/or her team killed. Ultimately, how will the mightiest of magic wielders not only fight, but also survive against the insane Belasco and a Demon King up to dark evil that will leave Midkemia like all the other worlds the Demon Legion has been to? Totally devoured of all life! All I'm sure of is that the next trilogy Raymond E. Feist writes will trump even these two, as his work gets better and better, and as more of the interesting and somewhat forgotten history of the Chaos Wars unfolds.
