Overview

Krondor: The Assassins (Riftwar Legacy Series #2) by Raymond E. Feist

New York Times bestselling fantasist Raymond E. Feist has created a world unlike any other-a sprawling kingdom coveted by enemies on all sides; a bustling center of commerce and magic, vibrantly alive and eternally in conflict; a place of unparalleled wonders where great heroes are bred to be ever-vigilant of those who would succumb to evil's seductions. This is Midkemia and its glorious center, Krondor-now imperiled by an insidious malignancy that grows from within.

A plague of murder has overrun Krondor. Prince Arutha-newly returned from battle with the Morehdel chieftain Delekhan and the renegade magician Makala-is concerned about the rash of unexplained assassinations in his capital city. And so he dispatches his most trusted agent, Squire James-formerly the thief known as Jimmy the Hand-to discover the source of the deadly epidemic.

James's hunt will lead him to the dank depths of Krondor-through subterranean tunnel and sewer system to a terrible war that is raging in secret far beneath the streets. For here rival criminal gangs are locked in a death struggle for control of a city's vice-dangerous gangsters who go by the name "Mockers" and others in the thrall of a mysterious being known as "The Crawler." But the deeper the delves, the closer Squire James gets to the true nature of the horror that has already left untold dead in its wake-a nightmare of corruption and deceit that threatens to destroy his liege and reduce Krondor to ruins. Ensnared by dark, intricate plots and dastardly magics, James must now race to prevent one last murder-the one craven, unthinkable slaying that will plunge Krondor into the all-consuming flames of war without quarter.

Although the first Krondor novel felt a little rushed, the second book was much better! This series is great in particular because it involves some of the best characters in fantasy: Jimmy the Hand and Arutha. Overall, if you are a Feist fan, read this series. If you just want a great fantasy, read this series!! If you like Feist, you might also like his "Daughter of the Empire" series with Janny Wurts. Also, "The Last Stormlord" by Glenda Larke, and "Thief's Gamble" by Juliet E. McKenna were comparable reads!
