Epic. In the manner of the sagas. Convergent, and clearly paving the way for the nine following series in the rich Riftwar Cycle.

2nd in my Year of Feist. Next up Daughter of the Empire, the only one of the Empire Trilogy I've read before. ( )

I was trying to work out throughout reading why I wasn't enjoying the Riftwar trilogy as much as I have enjoyed some of Feist's other series, and I realised the answer was semi in the question - I read it out of order. I wasn't feeling the tension or the build up to the end, because I knew the over all outcome. I knew what would happen. I knew what characters lived (to a most part), so there was nothing enthralling within the book to pull me.

I personally had more interest in Arutha and his bunch in this book, and found myself drifting from Pug, Tomas and Macros, and their storyline. I enjoyed Amos Trask, and Guy, and the whole concept of Armengar.

Pug's storyline was a little too big for me to grasp, and I found I didn't enjoy it as much as the other storylines going through at the same time.

Over all, this book was alright. For me. Wasn't my favourite in the series, but wasn't my least favourite either, so it is sitting somewhere in the middle.

I think I am looking forward to taking a break from Feist at the moment and to come back again another time and hopefully enjoy a new trilogy, maybe. ( )
