When it comes to this current title, however, I must agree wholeheartedly with other reviewers who have said that it seems to be a return to the old Feist. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and devoured it very quickly (much to my horror when I realized that I now have to wait and wait for the next book in the trilogy to come out). Without giving anything away by way of spoilers, this book contains a lot of intrigue between the major kingdoms and ends with two very surprising plot twists that made my jaw drop. I'm still not sure why the publisher has the Kindle edition priced so expensively, but if you're one of those people who find yourself teetering on the fence of whether or not to buy it, I would advise you to go for it -- expensive or not... If you're a fan of Feist's early works, you will not be disappointed!
Not much here in my opinion. The story will be unfolded as Feist releases more books, but this first in the series is not worth it at the moment. Wait for more installments to be released for a seamless read. That's what I've decided after this disappointing entrée.
PS ... giving the author repeated 1 star reviews because of wacky kindle pricing is bogus and unfair. Whining about kindle pricing is a publisher issue and is overwhelming the purpose of a book review. Amazon as the Kindle provider isn't even offering the kindle edition for gosh sakes. You are paying Amazon "partner" prices that are not doing Kindle any favors.
His latest books, this one in particular, are one dimensional and everyone in the book seems very much alike. He seems to move everyone around like game pieces, from one crisis to another, with very little explanation of what is going on. You don't get to know the characters or the communities and the worlds they live in. He goes into no one in depth, except in this book, the Child, a demon. He has also killed off all the interesting characters, and has replaced them (or not replaced them) with one dimensional and very boring people.
A well planned war is coming from Kesh, but what is going on in the City of Kesh, with the emperor and his brother who rule there? What is happening in Krondor and Rillanon? How did Pug and Magnus deal with the death of Miranda, and through at least 8 books, who is Magnus? What is his life like, who has he loved and what does he think? We have never gotten to know him after all this time. What is going on with the Star Elves and the Queen and Tomas? What is happening on the new world that the Tsurani have settled on? How are they coping with all the problems of rebuilding their cultures and societies? So many strings hanging out there, and so many unanswered questions.
In his recent books, the type face has gotten bigger and bigger, and the books shorter and shorter. It's too bad that he seems to have lost interest in his vivid beautiful worlds, and I am losing interest in this author as well.

Feist is one of my all time favourite author for any genre. I literally grew up with the Magician series from the beginning of Pug and Tomas. Read morePublished 25 days ago by Pongrapee Thongsrinoon
