Overview

Flight of the Nighthawks (Darkwar Saga Series #1) by Raymond E. Feist

A portent of annihilation awakens the powerful sorcerer Pug in the dead of night—a dread vision warning of a vast and terrible army descending upon the exposed heart of Midkemia. Even the formidable might of the Tsurani Empire will not beat back the alien invaders. And in far Stardock town, two boys—untrained, unready, and barely come of age—will be called upon by the mysterious Conclave of Shadows to confront a sinister plot that implicates even the highest-ranking nobles in the land. For a nightmare of treason, intrigue, and murder is brewing among an ancient Brotherhood of Death—a clan of merciless assassins whose name is spoken only in fearful whispers . . .

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

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!

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......
