A return to form for Feist in my opinion. Fantasy tropes galore but that's what I came here for. ( )
  brakketh | Dec 29, 2017 |
The Conclave of Shadows finds itself fighting a two front war; on the one hand the talnoy located by Kaspar in the previous series prove to be a beacon for a power from a lower plane of existence that if it made its way through to that occupied by Midkemia and Kelewan would totally overwhelm the combined armies of both worlds. It also looks like the deadly assassins, the Nighthawks, are back and the evidence seems to indicate that they are being controlled by the deadly Leso Varen who's been shown to find it difficult to stay dead and those nighthawks have a plan involving the royal family of Greater Kesh.. Into this confused mess come Tad and Zane, a couple of wayward lads come under the care of Caleb as he investigates Kesh.

All in all, the series was becoming a bit of a drag and while this was a reasonably engrossing film, especially when dealing with Kesh I found it relatively difficult to finish this book ( )

Feist has now ruined Midkemia for me. This was like eating week old porridge. You know it was good a week ago [ie, Magician: Apprentice and Magician: Master], but now? Disgusting.

I just gave up and I've given up on Feist. I'll stick to his old stuff, thankyou very much. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060792795, Mass Market Paperback)

A portent of annihilation awakens the powerful sorcerer Pug in the dead of night—a dread vision warning of a vast and terrible army descending upon the exposed heart of Midkemia. Even the formidable might of the Tsurani Empire will not beat back the alien invaders. And in far Stardock town, two boys—untrained, unready, and barely come of age—will be called upon by the mysterious Conclave of Shadows to confront a sinister plot that implicates even the highest-ranking nobles in the land. For a nightmare of treason, intrigue, and murder is brewing among an ancient Brotherhood of Death—a clan of merciless assassins whose name is spoken only in fearful whispers . . .
