Sometimes you randomly pull a book out of the wall in a bookstore and you get lucky.

12 years later I've read virtually everything he's written, and every spring I am at the bookstore waiting for his new book the day it comes out.

This is the first book he wrote about the world of Midkemia. More than just fantasy... underlying discussion of religion and the nature of good and evil. ( )

Cardboard. The characters were cardboard, the conversation was wooden, and the story was derivative. This book has sat in my to-read pile for ages, and now that I finally got around to it, I really wanted to like it. I didn't.

Bummer. ( )

This is simply one of the most epic must read Fantasy series of all time. It has an amazing width and breadth, characters you will remember twenty years from now, mostly Jimmy the Hand and Pug, and is just the beginning of a much larger story. If you were looking for a book to inspire a solid year of reading you could get wrapped up in this series and still not be done, but not through lack of trying.

Quite simply a young boy discovers he is something more than anyone else. He has a source of power that means instead of reading a spell from paper, which is the traditional form of magic at the time, he envisions it in his heads, performs a higher level of magic and saves the life of a princess. Thus begins his journey.

For Pug this is just the beginning and if you want to follow him until he is an old man that has lived many lives you have that option. Enjoy. ( )

A wonderful story that should be read together with its sequel. ( )

Epigraph
A boy's will is the wind's will, And the thoughts of youth are long, long thoughts. – Longfellow, My Lost Youth
Dedication
This book is dedicated to the memory of my father, Felix E. Feist, in all ways, a magician.
First words
The storm had broken.
Quotations
This worrying about the future is a dry sort of work. I think it would be benefited by a mug of strong ale.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553564943, Mass Market Paperback)

To the forest on the shore of the Kingdom of the Isles, the orphan Pug came to study with the master magician Kulgan. But though his courage won him a place at court and the heart of a lovely Princess, he was ill at ease with the normal ways of wizardry. Yet Pug's strange sort of magic would one day change forever the fates of two worlds. For dark beings from another world had opened a rift in the fabric of spacetime to being again the age-old battle between the forces of Order and Chaos.
