Read from February 16 to 20, 2012

The second novel in the Chaoswar series included an awesome beginning, which introduced an interesting new character, a dark elf, who is son of the legendary Gorath (protagonist from "Krondor: The Betrayal") and an epic ending, which promises a stunning third book in the series. Unfortunately, between the beginning and the ending we had a lot of pointless intrigues and boring journeys in which the heroes defeated groups of very weak enemies. Even the major battle in the royal court of Roldem was with creatures, who are average in power in the universe of Mr. Feist. And for a final saga, I expected spellbinding battles between extremely powerful individuals and armies. I may get them in book three. But book two, although solid as an stand-alone adventure, disappointed me, when put in the grand scheme of things.
Still, I would prefer Feist to any other author of epic fantasy, excluding maybe Terry Brooks.
