From Publishers Weekly
Feist and Stirling bring humor and pathos to 13-year-old Jimmy the Hand's third escapade (after 2002's Murder in La Mut). Krondor's ever-resourceful boy thief, not content with helping Princess Anita and Prince Arutha make a seaward escape from the city's viceroy, rescues Hotfingers Flora and some unlucky fellow thieves from prison. Jimmy goes into exile with grateful Flora, hoping to find her Land's End relatives, and soon winds up aiding another damsel in distress: fellow teenager Lorrie Merford, searching for her younger brother, who was kidnapped by her parents' killers. This simple, charming fairy tale will appeal to adult fans of the Riftwar books as well as mature teens who don't mind a bit of romance in their sword-and-sorcery.

Honoured Enemy, the first in this collaborative series, has sold 50,000 copies in hardback. In conjunction with the chronicler of alternative US history, Steve Stirling, Raymond Feist returns to tell the full tale of one of his fans' favourite Riftwar characters, pickpocket and confidence trickster Jimmy the Hand. Jimmy, boy thief of Krondor, lives in the shadows of the city. Gifted beyond his peers, he is a pickpocket with potential. Aiding the Prince Arutha in his rescue of Princess Anita, Jimmy runs afoul of Black Guy's secret police. He flees to Sarth, home to others who tread a dangerous path, and more, to a dangerous presence unknown even to the local thieves and smugglers. The final volume in the Tales of the Riftwar sequence maintains the energetic invention of its predecessors.
