From the New York Times bestselling author of the Riftwar Cycle—including the original Riftwar, the Serpentwar, the Darkwar, the Demonwar, and now the Chaoswar—comes the latest entry in one of the most treasured and enduring sagas in modern fantasy.
A Crown Imperilled
War rages in Midkemia once again, and behind the chaos, disquieting evidence points to dark elements at work.
As enemies march across the realm wreaking destruction, its brave and loyal defenders battle to survive—a struggle made more perilous now that Jim Dasher's trusted intelligence network has been cleverly dismantled. Region by region, Midkemia is being ripped apart, and the loyal spy and his allies find themselves overpowered at every turn.
Signs of the kingdom's impending doom surround them. King Gregory of the Isles has yet to produce an heir. Roldem and Rillanon have each been plagued by palace coups that threaten to topple their thrones. Lord Hal of Crydee and his great friend Ty Hawkins, champion swordsman of the Masters' Court, have been entrusted with smuggling Princess Stephané and her lady-in-waiting, the lovely and perplexing Lady Gabriella, out of Roldem to safety. But the rising danger has made finding refuge treacherous.
Nowhere is safe, including Ylith, Midkemia's strategic bastion, where Hal's younger brothers Martin and Brendan hold off an onslaught of brutal Keshian Dog Soldiers and a mysterious force from beneath the sea. Yet courage alone is not enough to withstand the continued enemy assault. Without reinforcements, hope of success fades. Martin, Brendan, and their compatriots know that while losing Crydee, the legendary city on the kingdom's edge, would be devastating, the realm can still be saved. But if Ylith falls, all is lost.
As Jim, Hal, and all their brothers in arms fight for their lives, Pug and the Conclave of Shadows embark on a magical quest to hunt down the dark force orchestrating the destruction before Midkemia is annihilated. And time is running out. . . .
I enjoyed many of his earlier books. This book was a chore to read. Moves slowly to no conclusion. Maybe next in series might be better but afraid of boring myself again.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer

Enjoyed it, excited Feist is writing well again and building up to a grand finale worthy of Pug. Some tiring editing issues that all of his books have lately suffered, but one of... Read morePublished 6 months ago by Amazon Customer
Great read although just the beginning of a very engrossing story of massive proportions. Heaven, Hell, Magic, Monsters, it has it all!Published 6 months ago by MileHighProphet
