Na de strijd om de Levenssteen tegen de zwarte elf Delakhan en zijn troepen in het stadje Sethanon, keert prins Arutha terug naar Krondor. In de stad is de sfeer grimmig. ...more
Honestly, this is the first part of the series where the books are starting off a little slow and the story is not sticking with me quite as much. That is likely a result of the first book in this trilogy being based on a video game and the fact ...more
Interessante sub-plots en intrige's. Het boek had een goede vaart en problemen werden opgelost door menselijk vernuft en moed, in plaats van te vertrouwen op Puc's magische krachten. Eindelijk zien we wat er in de jeugd van William gebeurde.
Goede karakterontwikkeling, een verhaal dat je lokt en je niet los laat voor je het helemaal gelezen heb.
The beginning can always be three things: amazing, meh and worst ever. Based on that, you decide whether you're going to read it. Amazing usually indicates you are going to love the other books also. If you like it enough to start it, you're probably going to invest a lot of yourself in that installment. T ...more
Na de strijd om de Levenssteen en het offer van een magier genaamd Patrus waardoor een scheuring kan worden gesloten keert Prins Arutha terug naar de hoofdstad om deze in "puin"terug te vinden. Er zijn vele brute moorden geweest onder leiding van ene kruiper en de snaken missen hun leider de Oprechte man, zou hij zijn vermoord? En golf van meer geweld wordt gevreesd.
Nog steeds zijn de boeken van Feist volgepakt met actie, avontuur en humor. Vooral het laatste maak ...more
We have Prince Arutha and very briefly Pug, Pug's son William and the true star of the book Squire James (formerly Jimmy the Hand) who just happens to be my favorite character in the 30+ book series.
It's a stand alone novel - the plot centers around a war that rages in the underworld - the Mockers are being challenged by someone known as the Crawler. So we've ...more
Gladly that wasn't the case. This book felt way better than 1st tome of The Riftwar Legacy. It lost the feeling of the poor scritp to medicore RPG game and felt more like story. This time we focus mostly on one person, squire James. We get only one new character that ...more
I have been Buddy-Reading this series over the last couple of months with a ‘book-club’ friend who had not read Raymond E. Feist’s work before. As I have been a long-time fan of his work, I have compared it to The Lord of the Rings books but have actually enjoyed this series more. When I mentioned this to my friend, she immediately wanted to read the series, and convinced me to read them with her- not that it was a big ask 😊.
It is an epic fantasy saga- with wonderful world building and scene se ...more
This was a fun read, with Feist’s character work coming through strong. It manages to finish off the story satisfyingly while also setting the stage for the final book in ...more
So far, these series are slowly becoming the most entertaining while I can observe the development of the mighty Prince of the West and his almost brother, Duke of Krondor.
New York Times bestselling author Raymond E. Feist returns us now to a place of unparalleled wonders--a sprawling kingdom coveted by enemies on all sides; a bustling center of commerce and magic, vibrantly alive and eternally in conflict. This is Midkemia, where great heroes are bred, and its glorious center...
Prince Arutha--newly returned from battle--is concerned about a rash of unexplained assassinations that plagues his capital city. And so he commissions his most trusted agent, Sq...more

Like its predecessor, this volume is based on the late '90s Krondor games (which are in turn based on Fiest's world and previous books). There are still hints of the videogaming origin like "we have to complete this side quest before we can go to the next area", but the pacing is much improved, and it actually feels like Feist's ...more
