Similar standard to the first book. Quite enjoyable, entertaining reading.
For a while it felt like this trilogy would be similar to the original Star Wars.
ie, The first book finishes with the end of a relatively minor mission and the second setting up suspense and a cliffhanger for the third.
Instead this second book finished similar to the first and it appears that young Tal has accomplished all he needs to.
It makes me wonder where the third book will go? Probably setting up for the next series?… (more)

I found this quite enjoyable.
The first book in the trilogy seemed to introduce some new characters but was not particularly memorable. This book is really setting up the characters and action for the next book(s).
In the previous book I was wondering about the introduction of Tad & Zane and how they were going to figure in the future. Seems like Feist had similar wonderings and introduced Jommy as their third wheel who is quickly taking over their storyline as he has a lot more personality about him while the other two I find underwhelming.
This book is building up the anticipation. Interesting new world and society entering the game. Multiple players and a. feeling that they will all be involved in the final climax.
Hope there is at least a mini-resolution in the final book of this trilogy. I think it's the last one I own and I probably want a short break to read something else before tackling the next chapters in the story

I've read this straight off the back of the preceding Talon of the SilverHawk series (or whatever it was called).
I gave those books 4 or 5 stars, but this one I struggled with a bit.
Presumably the young boy characters introduced in this book will do something important in later books, as will the other new characters.
Talon, Kaspar, Caleb, etc from the last few books were central, without any of them being a real focus of this book. Pug, Miranda & Nakor also prominent enough.
I felt it built up towards the end, but despite Feist trying to keep the evil magician's identity a secret until the final climax I found it fairly predictable.
