I think I liked Nicholas the best of Arutha's sons. I loved this book more than all the books of this cycle other than the first three. ( )

Good continuation. ( )

Like the previous book in the series, this book is a bridge to the next trilogy. Again, this is about the royal family of Krondor, and how Arutha is training the next generation to take over for him. Its a good book with plenty of action, and it sets up the next trilogy nicely, though it does stand on its own. ( )

I really liked this book, as I do most of Feist's work, although he does have a talent for writing books which are long. This book continues the story line from the Magician (Apprentice and Master), Silverthorn and A Darkness at Sethanon. I like that, and have felt for a while that Prince of the Blood was a bit of a tangent from the main thrust of the series -- although characters which are used in later stories are introduced through that book.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553563734, Paperback)

Long recovered from the ravages of the Riftwar, the land and people of the kingdom of the Isles thrive. Nicholas, the youngest son of Prince Arutha, is intelligent and gifted but vastly inexperienced. In hopes of hardening him, his father sends him and his irreverent squire, Harry, to live at Rustic Castle Crydee to learn of life beyond the halls of privilege. But within weeks of Nicholas and Harry's arrival, Crydee is viciously attacked by unknown assailants, resulting in murder, massive destruction, and the abduction of two young noblewomen. The raiders have come from a pirate haven and are no ordinary foe ... but an enemy connected to dark magical forces that threaten the lands Nicholas will someday rule -- if he survives.

Long recovered from the ravages of the Riftwar, the land and the people of the Kingdom of the Isles thrive on the bounty of good times. Nicholas, youngest son of Prince Arutha of Krondor is intelligent and gifted, but vastly inexperienced in worldly matters. In hopes of hardening him, his father sends him and his squire, Harry, to live at rustic Castle Crydee to learn of life beyond the halls of privilege. Thus begins the most harrowing experience of their young lives. Within weeks of Nicholas's arrival, Crydee is viciously attacked by assailants unknown. The result: murder, massive destruction, and the abduction of two young noblewomen, friends to the prince. And Crydee isn't the only town that's been hit - towns up and down the coast have suffered the same merciless devastation. From out of the wreckage two facts become clear. The raiders have come from the distant Sunset Islands, home to pirates of every stripe - and possibly even farther away than that. But more significant, these are no ordinary pirates: their mission is connected to dark magical forces that have threatened the Kingdom before. As brother to the future king, Nicholas feels compelled to follow the abductors and rescue those taken from Crydee - but the threat he ultimately faces is one that places the fate of all of his people in his inexperienced lands.… (more)
