Disappointing. ( )
  willowcove | Sep 1, 2010 |
This book should be popular with Feist fans for one particular reason, because it features one of the best characters of the early books, Jimmy the Hand. Jimmy must track down a rash of assassinations and murders in Krondor, using his old connections to find out who's behind them and stop them before they cause a disaster. This book is a little more personal than most Feist books, as there are no large armies or hordes of invaders, and the key to solving everything isn't magic, its Jimmy's cleverness. ( )

Continuing the RiftWar Legacy trilogy, the Empire deals with the sudden influx of assassins into Krondor. ( )
  xavierroy | Oct 5, 2009 |
This is the 2nd book in the Riftwar Legacy. Krondor seems to be having an unusually large number of strange deaths, which Jimmy the Hand is able to trace to the Night Hawks, but there seemed to be someone controlling several different groups that by all rights shouldn't be coordinating together. Whispers of The Crawler get back to Arutha through Jimmy. The trail takes them deeper and deeper into the labyrinth of plots. Our daring heroes try to keep the kingdom safe. ( )

This book is dedicated to all the editors who have put up with, inspired, corrected, and aided me, to the ends of improving the work and making me look good: Adrian Zackheim, Nick Austin, Pat LoBrutto, Janna Silverstein, Malcolm Edwards, and my current guides, Jennifer Brehl and Jane Johnson.

Also, to Peter Schneider, who has done far more on my behalf than he realizes.

My deepest thanks to them all.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0380803232, Mass Market Paperback)

Something is rotten in the state of Krondor: the Mockers, the gang of goons and bullyboys that were James's colleagues back when he was known as Jimmy the Hand, have been decimated in vicious fighting on the rooftops and in the sewers. That, and a seemingly random slew of murders, tips off the Crown that some outside concern is attempting an underworld power-grab right under the Prince's nose. Raymond E. Feist's second Riftwar book, Krondor the Assassins, continues the action of Krondor the Betrayal with Prince Arutha and Squire James back in the Midkemian capital, returning triumphantly from their campaign against the Tsurani magician Makala and moredhel headman Delekhan. But Arutha quickly sends James, née Jimmy, back into the city's seedy underbelly to investigate, and in the process he forms a sort of Krondorian secret service. Could the assassins of the Nighthawks be responsible, or perhaps some Keshian interest? James, naturally, begins to suss the situation out, which becomes even more complicated when a hunting party including the visiting Crown Prince of Olasko is beset by shape-shifting magicians.

James and Arutha, both classic feel-good-fantasy heroes--the type of guys with a twinkle in their eye who seem virtually indestructible--eventually track their enemies down to a deserted Keshian fortress, facing assorted assassins, demons, and evil priests in the process. Not the most imaginative or compelling fantasy around, but The Assassins is still a fun romp for fans of the Krondor band. --Paul Hughes
