Cover: convincing. Actual story: No.
Honored Enemy (Legends of the Riftwar) was indeed an epic found in the world of Midkemia. Can I promise its exaltation? No. This book, undoubtedly, was not at all written by Raymond E. Fiest but his sidekick, some unpopular author. I am convinced that this second-hand author did all the writing while Fiest dictated the facts about Midkemia, its culture, who the Tsurani are, and basic history of the Riftwar, so that the other author had a chronicle of information to weave a book. Obviously, the book acquires insubtle literature completely 'not Fiest's', rather a whole new vocabulary, stanza form, diction, and summary. Thus, I conclude that this novel was not written by Fiest. Sure it was somewhat of a read but ultimately the novel's stratum and substratum was altogether unconvincing. And every page of the book I found myself tracing through the consistent use of the 'D' word. D**m this and D**m that, and for one who excludes those words in his life, I was complemently irritated and bored at its vast use. Obscenity within a book is not a keen dialogue of a novel and it is easily frustrating to some readers. The book: different. The promising cover: deceiving. Conclusion: ultimately disappointing.
