Двама от виновниците вече са загинали от ръката му, но Тал няма да се откаже, докато не разкрие причините за убийствата и не накаже техни

I quickly consumed this Fantasy pap middle chapter after enjoying the paint-by-numbers origin story in 'Talon of the Silver Hawk'.

I wanted to spend more time with our hero Talon (or 'Tal' as he's known now) but his company is starting to wear thin. There's just something so pedestrian about this series. It's enjoyable, and yes, Raymond E. Feist still writes with 'vivid imagination' as the back cover proclaims, but the problem is he already imagined this stuff three or four times before, and now
'What did you do over Easter, Danielle?' I will no doubt be asked when I dawdle into work bright and early on Tuesday morning.

'I read', will be my half asleep reply.

And that will be the ridiculous truth. I have done nothing but read, eat, ducked into work to clear the chute, done my washing, and slept. And then I read some more.

"King of Foxes" is the second instalment in the "Conclave of Shadows" series. It continues to follow Talon of the Silver Hawk/Tal Hawkins as he becomes a spy, a prisoner,

In which Raymond E. Feist displays absolutely no creativity whatsoever. Ugh. I know in my review of the first book in the series, I was ranting about what a lovely trait a bit of predictability can be... but seriously, I'm pretty stupid. This book did absolutely nothing I haven't seen in another fantasy novel; furthermore, it did nothing I haven't seen in a FEIST novel. It's pretty bad when you start cannibalizing your own plot lines.

What doesn't suck: Um. Lets skip this part.

What sucked: In the
This sequel picked up right where Talon of the Silver Hawk ended. And as Talon of the Silver Hawk, or Tal Hawkins, developed, he became a stronger and more likable character. Some of the hardships he faced could have made this a much darker book, but lucky interventions in the same vein as the last book, kept Tal optimistic and surprisingly upbeat.
I wonder what will happen in the next book, especially considering the fate of the villain....
My favorite scene, though, was the shark/beach scene -

Book picks up first book pace very well and one adventure follows an other with even a variant of Count Monte Cristo story. There are rough edges and some scenes do not play as well as it might/should.

In the course of book 1 the main character was getting less and less likeable. But in this book he starts to realise that not all changes are good. The struggle he has with his own personality was more interesting than the physical fights. Though I felt that there was one situation that got resolved a little too easily. It's under the spoiler tag.

I really wanted to give this a 3.5 - after reading it I was certain a 4 would be sufficient, but after mulling over it I have decided to drop it down a notch.
I felt a little cheated by this book. Sure, it had some swashbuckling snippets and intrigue, but in the end the reader comes away with so little.
The foundation of the story is lost to another storyline; one I had no real connection with. Who did I care about more - the big-hearted 11y.o. Talon or man-whore 23y.o. Talwin; clearly the vir

Вторият том подхваща историята оттам, откъдето ни остави автора с финала на първата книга от поредицата. Тал Хокинс се завръща в Ролдем, за да намери начин да се превърне в част от свитата на херцог Каспар, и след известни маневри успява. Новото назначение на Тал бързо тръгва в посоката, която Конклавът на сенките е предвидил, и ородонът се превръща в доверен човек на своя най-върл враг. След изпълнението на една-две деликатни задачи, обаче, херцогът показва истинското си лице, и Тал е предаден, ...more

The second instalment of a brand new epic fantasy from the master of the genre.

Among the Orosini tribe, every boy must undergo the traditional manhood ritual in order to understand his place in the universe and discover his manhood name. Kielianapuna must survive on the remote mountain peak of Shatana Higo until the gods grant him his vision. But Kieli has already waited for four days and nights, and now he is cold, lonely, despairing, and very, very tired... When he is woken by the terrifying

The second book in the Conclave Of Shadows trilogy finds Talon/Talwin manipulating himself into the service of Duke Kasper of Olasko, the very man who ordered the death of his people, and thus in proximity of the vile magician Leso Varen, the target the Conclave has sent him after. But,a horrible betrayal sends Talwin to a remote prison to die, and while others may submit to defeat, the tenacious Orosini might yet turn this twist of fate into a strike for revenge.

Another enjoyable read by Feist and a good follow up to the first book of the trilogy, “Talon of the Silver Hawk”. The majority of the story was really enjoyable and fluid but the ending came up short and sort of tied things up nicely which seems odd to say this is the 2nd book in a trilogy.

I found that there wasn’t much character development after the first book, which did play out little like a training montage in some parts, but I don’t think the story lacked for this and could concentra

An unworthy follow-up to the first of this trilogy, King of Foxes bore little of what made Talon of the Silver Hawk worthwhile and even twisted up some of it so that it came out badly.

In the second half of the previous novel, Talon became a somewhat generic character, though it was somewhat excusable since he was playing a role and crafting a persona for himself. However, for the vast majority of King of Foxes, that person is the only character Tal evinces. Talon became almost completely subsume

This rating is really a 4.5, but I didn't think giving a 5 was justified. I liked this book more than the first in the series (Talon of the Silverhawk) mostly because it had much more action and the plot seemed to flow more naturally than did the first book. A criticism that I have for this book is that while the main character evolves throughout this book (and the first) his evolution seems to be forced by the author to further the plot in some places. Feist should have spent a few more pages a ...more

Tal Hawkins is suave, dashing, daring, the best swordsman in the kingdom (he won a contest), AND he gets all the girls... though, he does have a stupid sense of honor (one that only pops up when it's necessary to advance the plot) and occasional parenthetical regrets and misgivings based on his primitive tribal upbringing. This one is slow to get started, and mostly predictable, then Tal gets humbled, imprisoned, has his arm cut off (though it grows back later), and then the novel roars ahead at ...more

Having had this on the shelf for several years, I picked this up looking forward to returning to Kelewan after a long absence.
However, although it is a decade since I read The Magician and the tremendous Daughter/Servant/Mistress of the Empire trilogy, my memory of them is going to be far fonder than my memory of King of Foxes.
It was not a bad tale, but I found it pedestrian, unimaginative and as the plot unrolled, the potential for manifold suprises, twists and political machinations which had

Like the first, another quick and enjoybale rea. It's been several years since I've read any of the Riftwar books and fortunately it did not affect it as those characters that did reference it, did so only obliquely.

While it is a continuation of a classic trope (the loner on a quest for vengeance) it actually set up a third book that takes the story in an unexpected direction. Looking forward to seeing where it goes from here.
Janannie Clough
This series is not as complex as his past novels it is very simple, but still enjoyable. Looking forward to the third book in the series, as i feel there was not enough depth to the character Tal Hawkins, so a change of character will be refreshing.

This is a great continuation from Talon of the Silver Hawk. It picks up on Tal's character and how he has become a man of importance in the kingdom. He is still seeking vengeance for the slaughter of his village years prior, but has also carefully created a life for himself with the tutelage of the Conclave of Shadows.
This book pretty well clears up the plot line of Tal, and probably should have been the end of this arc of the myth of Midkemia. When I read the last page I recall feeling that sen

Took a while to get into,probably my fault as I thought it was the second in a set I'd started reading but two opening books of trilogies have similar names although it does feel as if I needn't read talon of the silver hawk now as quite a lot of it is recapped in this book so I won't rush to get the 3rd in this trilogy too soon as I find too much cross referencing annoying.

“Remember, never rely on one plan, Tal. Always have two or more in place when you undertake something perilous. If the first one fails, go to the second plan. If the second plan fails, go to the third.” “If the third plan fails, Your Grace?” Kaspar laughed. “Then run like hell if you’re still alive.” 0 likes
