From the Publisher
"He held the fate of two worlds in his hands...
Once he was an orphan called Pug, apprenticed to a sorcerer of the enchanted land of Midkemia.. Then he was captured and enslaved by the Tsurani, a strange, warlike race of invaders from another world.
There, in the exotic Empire of Kelewan, he earned a new name--Milamber. He learned to tame the unnimagined powers that lay withing him. And he took his place in an ancient struggle against an evil Enemy older than time itself.

Tsurani traits seemed to be drawn from Japanese samurai, Aztec and even ancient Roman traditions, and not always the best of them. Pug/Milamber starts as a captured slave, becomes a paramount Great One by virtue of his magic, and must find a way to end the Riftwar between his two worlds. Even though his magic plays a critical part in all that, Mr. Feist is more interested in the politics of both worlds. Kingdom politics become complicated for the conDoin line, but the politics of the other world are absolutely byzantine.
Pug/Milamber is a central character, but others are just as fully formed -- one of the great strengths of the series. Most readers will want to read more to see how their favorites fare, but the two books that make up "Magician" are complete in themselves.
And yes, this is the same review I gave to the first book, and everything still applies!
It is an entertaining story, providing great character development for characters with long futures in this ongoing world. The events in the first two books are important reads in the series.
