    A Huge Fan

    I'm a huge fan of Raymond E. Feist's work, so it will come as no surprise that I really liked this book. It's difficult for me to find the words to express just how much I enjoy his work. His books are so good that I must wait until the series is completely released so that I can read them one right after the other. The action, fighting, and drama are so high and intense that I can't read one and wait until the next is released. The entertaining and knowledgeable Taredhel brothers Gulamendis, a Demon Master, and Laromendis a Conjurer, were essential to not only understanding about demon lore but also to learn how the Taredhel come to be so very different from the other Elves we are used to reading about on Midkemia. Amirantha, a warlock who is a summoner of demons, is more than he appears to be. And because of this, he is both a contributor and a victim of the Demon Legion. He's also got himself caught in a complicated romance. Every time that his and Sandreena's, Knight-Adamant of the Order of the Shield of the Weak, paths cross she punches him in the face, knocking him to the ground. Pug's mind is heavy with the price he must pay, to see all the ones that he loves die before him. With the aid of members of the Conclave like the multi-talented and highly secretive Jim Dasher and Father-Bishop Creegan of the Temple of Dala, they must find a way to interpret the vague and not very helpful insights given to him by the Oracle. Only by this group of potential enemies working together and gathering more and more information to answer the questions that keep mounting, will Midkemia be able to hold off the Dread Legion invading the last know habitable world.

    Hints of the past, but effective...

    My favorite element of Mr. Feist's writing is that he can take a standard mix of fantasy concepts, such as Elves, Dwarves and Goblins and find a way to mix them with effective character development. I am a long-time fan of the Magician series and found this new book to be a solid and entertaining work. It is very intersting to see how Feist is again able to reach back into his bag of old and reliable subject matter and craft a fresh story. The introduction of the Star Elves was brilliantly delivered. Feist made them just different enough to be new yet remain clearly as Elves which which we are familiar. Upon the very subtle mention of Angels, I had to stop and wonder why I never noticed their absence in previous stories. I suspect we will find the connection, somewhere on the Peaks of Quor. A good book and an above average Feist offering.

    We found more Demons! Or did they find us???

    Here we go again! More Demons!
    My review is mixed. I am a fan of Raymond Feist, and enjoy his political fantasy, having read and re-read the Serpentwar saga, as well as all his efforts. I enjoy his ability to take something pretty boring (like wheat trading) and make it page-turning reading. He is a Master!
    Saying that, I am aware that many of Mr Feist's fans enjoy swords and sorcery. This book is for them. As readers, we are focusing again on Pug, the magician. Unfortunately for me, I am tired of Pug. He is a worn-out character that in my opinion would be better used as a support figure, in a mythical role.
    I DID enjoy the rest of the book. There are new characters being developed, new branches of magic being discovered, lots of foul-tempered demons, another race facing extinction, and another branch of Elves returning back to Elvendar. To those who have read Mr. Feist's other books, these topics are unfortunately retreads of prior ideas. BUT, as I stated, I DID enjoy this book, which speaks to the author's ability as a wordsmith.

    Overall, I recommend this book. For those familiar with Mr. Feist's other works, this book is faithful, and deserves to be read. To those uninitiated, I would advise finding the lead book of his Serpentwar series, or the initial Magician novel. They are certainly the bset place for a Feist novice to start.

    Good Book

    Once again Feist tells a great story. His writing style is so easy to read and his stories usually leave you wanting more. This book, however, had a tendency to be a little slow and along the same lines as others he has written. It was still good reading and was an excellent start up for future books since I now want to know what happens next.
