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 been laid by Feist was surpased only by his failure to develop and deliver any of them.
Ultimately a good yarn, but you get the impression that Feist was not in the most bothered or creative of moods when he penned it; it could have been written 80 years ago.
