    Pug is back

    In Midkemia, Pug the sorcerer is sleeping with his beloved wife Miranda when the nightmare awakens him. He envisions the deadly soldiers of Dasarti, but this time they attack him seemingly successful unlike what happened years ago in real life. Miranda as always provides him comfort as she knows her Pug has lived through lifetimes of tragedies and traumas cleaning up the calamities of others. Still very concerned with what he saw in his dream, Pug convenes the Conclave of Shadows to meet on Sorcerer¿s Isle ASAP to interpret what this means and prepare for the worst that he anticipates is coming. --- At the same time two teenagers, Tad and Zane due to some misadventures arrive at the Isle too. Though untrained they are now part of the sorcerers led by Pug preparing for unknown strife against an unknown adversary. However, as Nakor and Magnus interpret things including scrolls from the future sent back by Pug to Pug, they realize the enemy is the lethal Nighthawk assassins accompanied by Pug¿s life long enemy the evil wizard Sidi, who Pug thought was dead, but is back as Leso Varen. To the victors goes Midkemia. --- Two years have passed since Pug¿s last save the world adventure (see EXILE¿S RETURN), but this time the opening tale of the Dark War saga seems more like a transition tale even with Sidi back (one time too often) as a personal adversary to the tired beleaguered hero. The story line is action-packed and introduces two new teen heroes who to them Pug seems like ancient history. Though well written and exciting, FLIGHT OF THE NIGHT HAWKS is clearly for those who have followed Pug from his juvenile days (see MAGICIAN) as he appears off kilter and seemingly (speculation on my part) set to pass the mantle to the next generation though he is in the middle of the fray. --- Harriet Klausner

    masterfully writen

    this book was amazing its kinda funny b/c i went to england like in november of 2005 and i happend to be right next to a boarders book store so i went in hoping to see somthing i would lik eand BAM right there in front of me was this, i cant even call it a book its just to plain a word for it, a novel, no a master piece. pug is back and better than ever in this thrilling new adventure featuring two young boys named tad and zane who are adopted by pugs younger son calis. calis , married to the boys foster mom, takes the boys to learn a trade when they are waylaid by bandits. after being greviously wounded calis is transported(with the boys) to his fathers island. this book includes gods manifesting them selves in other mortals, sutes of armer filled with souls and a whole other world trying to open rifts between midikemia and themselves, while at the same time some one has revived the kingdoms worst enemy, the Night Hawks. its a battle agenst time to stop assasination murder and the whole world from being inslaved by a ruthless race of beings......

    Flight of the Night Hawks, the Darkwar trilogy, Book 1

    On the surface, "Flight of the Nighthawks" tells the story of two "brothers", coming of age to be men, Tad and Zane, which Feist does really, really well. I find the more interesting part of the story is how Pug and Nakor continually discuss the very nature of good and evil, while Pug's mind is always on his new family and the one that he has lost. They are also trying to deal with the threat of the Dasati invading Midkemia, through a new rift that is open with the help of the Great Ones. Also, they must find Leso Varen, who has returned. But, can they defeat him this time? There are a lot of great characters in this novel that I love, and the further investigations into the Nighthawks, the Talnoy and the Gods themselves are more than enough to keep me reading. I really love this book! Raymond E. Feist does not disappoint! A definite must read!

    Kill Sidi/Leso Already...

    This war with only one true Nemesis is taking forever. Can't the author think of something else? This is getting boring...always facing the same enemy can be taxing...although they triumph at the end of every book, its rather pointless to make the enemy bungle a few moves to lose and still come out alive...

    Very good

    Very good. I've been reading Feist for years and I would recomend this book to anyone. I was glad to see Pug back in a major role.

    Really?

    I love feist. I love Midkemia. I do not like what Feist has done with this series. They speak of Pug as the greatest magician ever. So tell me why he can't kill Leso Varen, but a regular mortal like Talon and Kaspar can?...I don't understand. I love the characters of Tad and Zane. I found the book interesting although it was still filled with the nonsense of catching Leso Varen. Whats the greatest magician ever affraid of? In the Conclave of Shadows series it even talks of Magnus someday beibg more powerful then Pug. So you mean to tell me....Pug, Miranda, Nakor and Magnus can't defeat Leso Varen...Give me a break. Im just so tired of these magicians. I would like the series alot better without them. Thats my only complaint about this series. it's time for Leso to die so the story can move foreward. The worlds greatest magicians can't kill Leso, but a young human named Talon can throw a ball at his face and then break his neck....COME ON FEIST!!!!............Never the less, I love the world of Midkemia and will continue to read......ENJOY....

    Re: Publishers Weekly Review

    While Feist may never enter the realms of epic fantasy literature like Tolkien, Robert Jordan or David Eddings, he is well worth the read. Their review makes the book sound as though it is not well writen, but they are quite mistaken, as Feist has a way of pulling the readers into the novel and creating a world that is almost real with it's history and detail. His language is easy to read, and I guess that is detremental for Publisher's Weekly, but to me it in no way detracts from the story. I do agree with the other reviewer that it seems geared towards people who have already read the other Midkemia novels, though you can get through it if you haven't.
