This one just wasn't pulling me in like the first two. Stopped at 16%

So much fantasy goodness packed in this one. Even if the first two were complete in themselves, they still serve as perfect vessels to bring about a somewhat standalone adventure full of nearly all the characters we've grown to love. Even Pug has a role, but mostly we get to follow and love Jimmy the Hand and Arutha.

This is not a simple "find the freaking herb to save his love" quest no matter how simple the blurb makes it seem. Indeed, there's a lot of intrigues, big bads only hinted at in the first two novels, and evil much bigger than two worlds could handle even if they could band together.

No spoilers, but even this "nearly" standalone adventure has all the makings of epic greatness of a slightly different flavor from before despite the familiar characters. :) Indeed, it's the characters and the complicated plotting that makes this great.

So much set up for the next one! Completely necessary, of course. I remember Darkness VERY fondly from way back when. :)

Okay, so, I may not have loved this one nearly as much as the first two, but my complaints are few and far between. :) I can't see how it could improve other than combining books together into much larger tales for continuity. :) ( )

This series cannot compare to the Empire Trilogy. Since I read that first it’s been difficult to push though these books. I’m dropping this one here ( )

I read these books years ago and loved them. Listening to them now brings back good memories. Peter Joyce narrates wonderfully and is a pleasure to listen too.Has a few funny moments that you don't get in Magician. Looking forward to the next in the series! ( )

Boek 3 in de serie. Weer prachtig geschreven, en weer 5 sterren.

Puc heeft een kleine, maar belangrijke rol in dit bijna op zich zelf staand verhaal. Ook andere bekenden uit de vorige twee boeken maken hun opwachting.

De lang verwachte huwelijk tussen Arthura en Anita wordt abrupt verbroken als er een giftige pijl op hen wordt afgeschoten door een moordenaar.

Ook nu weer zijn er de grote gevaren te overwinnen op zoek naar een zeldzame plant, die groeit op een plek waar alleen de mordhel leven.

Een goede voorbereiding op dingen die komen gaan in volgende boeken.

Ik ga geen verder review schrijven. Liever lees ik het volgende deel: [b:Duisternis over Sethanon|2932935|Duisternis over Sethanon (De Sage van de Oorlog van de Grote Scheuring, #3)|Raymond E. Feist|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1204549587s/2932935.jpg|15940] lezen. ( )
