    Looking Forward...

    This third book was better than the first, but not as good as the second. I am assuming that the tie-in to the video game is what made this series seem rather rushed. The biggest issue with this book is that the fight scenes all seem rather repetitive. That said, it still contains story about some of the greatest characters in fantasy, and it is definitely worth the effort to read for long-time Feist fans! If you like Feist, you might also like Juliet E. McKenna, Glenda Larke, and my favorite, Maggie Furey!

    Great book

    Once again Feist has produced an award winning novel. I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters are well-developed and the story is intriguing. The books leaves the reader hanging at the end though, with the mysteriousness of the crawler and the epilogue.

    Another good book.

    It was exciting to be on another adventure with Squire James. With the addition of a different magician, Brother Solon, and more insight into the Wreckers Guild, it helped fill in the gaps from all of the other series. Having played the computer game, it was interesting to see how R.F. built the story from that vantage point. The only part that was lacking was 'Who is the Crawler'. It was not his best book, but it was a good read and I can't wait until the next one. He truly is the best in his craft.!!!

    Exciting fantasy

    The race to gain the holiest relic of Midkemia, the Tear of the god, is on between the malevolent forces of Sidi vs. the magician Jazhara and his side. If the evil sorcerer Sidi gains the gem, he will control Krondor because the Tear enables the possessor to communicate with the Gods. To do so, Sidi sends a killing machine, Bear the Pirate, to bring back the gem. Jazhara and his cohorts sail to keep the gem safe. <P>However, with Krondor¿s strongest protectors out at sea, criminal mastermind Crawler begins his plan to wreck havoc on Krondor. Time is running out as the two frontal attacks leave Krondor in jeopardy. The heroes must stop Bear, gain control of the Tear of the Gods, and return in time to prevent the Crawler¿s bloody massacre. <P> KRONDOR: TEAR OF THE GODS is the third fantasy tale in Raymond E. Feist¿s Krondor series. As with THE BETRAYAL and THE ASSASSINS, the story line is non-stop action and adventure on an epic scale. Sub-genre fans will fully enjoy Mr. Feist¿s fantasy feast, as the gifted author knows how to spin quite a tale. References to the first two books might slightly confuse new fans, who should read the first two books in order before trying this one to enhance the flavor of a cleverly designed plot. Still, this tale for the most part stands alone as a well-written novel that will provide much enjoyment to its readers. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Another Fiest Success

    Krondor: Tear of The Gods, the third installment in Fiest's Riftwar Legacy series picks where Krondor: The Assassins leaves off. James, squire to Prince Arutha is assigned to formally meet Arutha's new court Magician, the beautiful niece of a Keshian Lord, Jazhara on her arrival to Krondor. Before James, (the former boy-thief Jimmy the Hand, from the Riftwar series) can return her to the palace, they are plunged into the depths of intrigue. James and Jazhara set off to recover the holiest of Midkemian relics, while William, son of Pug the Magician, Lieutenant of Arutha's Army, and Friend of James and Jazhara is sent on a manhunt to capture Bear, a pirate with a rather nasty temperment and a magic amulet that make him somewhat hard to kill. Action, adventure, and some really nasty bad guys are in store for all. Fiest uses his mastery of descriptive imagery to transport the reader in to the scene in a way few authors can. The characters come alive and are three dimentional. and of course there is the usual Fiest comic relief. The Riftwar Legacy series is based on a computer game, which in turn was based on Fiest's original Riftwar series. Only Fiest could pull such a rich plot from the randomness of such a game. This is a wonderful read

    Another good read from Feist.

    This another great book to add to your collection if your a Feist fan. This book brings together characters you only hear about in the other series. It also shows how powerful the tear of the gods is. If you like Feist definately read this book.
