However, this is a different story, Japanese type invaders come through a "rift" to the world of Midkemia and attack the inhabitants. This is a world similar to medevial Earth, with Earls, Dukes, Barons, etc., all at odds with each other. The Tsurani are the invaders from another earthlike world which has a very stratified society. Both the Tsurani and the Midkemia forces are human, but both are hunted and must do battle with "the Dark Ones", elves who hate all humans and whose goal in life is to eradicate them. A force of Tsurani and one from the Midkemia forces, both in desperate straights from the cold weather and worn from a previous battle, find themselves reluctantly joining together when they are attacked by the Dark Elves, purely a matter of the survival of both the Tsurani and Midkemians. The story goes on from there to a happy ending.
This book was quite enjoyable, had a nice plot and gives one something to think about concerning wars.
Not being at all familiar with Raymond Feist's works, I was a bit dubious, as I am not too interested in fantasy, magic, wizards, etc. However, this book had little of that and instead was a very insightful treatise on how two deadly enemy forces can join to battle a force even more deadly than they, just to survive.
This was a "hard to put down" book and I highly recommend it to readers of military genre books. Good stuff!
I was a bit disappointed in the ending, though, as it seemed as if the authors were tired of the book and just wanted to end it quickly, jumping to an era obviously years later and quickly sketching the lives of the all the main protaganists.
My only criticisms are that the story was a little too predictable, and I thought they tried too hard to tie this story in with MAGICIAN. It seemed like every once in a while they would throw in a few pages harking back to the classic, just to prove they were still in Midkemia; the story would have been better without. However, it was a mere annoyance, and overall I enjoyed the book and can't wait for the rest of the series!
