What This Book is About…
To save the future of both empires, the powerful sorcerer Pug and the Conclave of Shadows have journeyed into the darkest of terrain: the Dasati home world. There, traveling undercover among the bloodthirsty and ruthless Dasati, they have encountered Bek, a disturbing young stranger whose secrets may prove more important than Pug knows.
And back in the realm of Midkemia, as the young warriors Tad, Zane, and their friends protect the Kingdom from raiders, Miranda finds herself a prisoner of the Dasati, and, even more ominously, of Pug’s nemesis, the evil sorcerer Leso Varen. And Pug finds himself allied with a friend thought long dead, a friend whose remarkable powers will be sorely needed in the battle to come . . . a battle that will bring them all together in one great struggle for the future and very soul of Midkemia.
What I Thought…
Another amazing novel to add to an ever growing series. If you enjoy epic fantasy then this book is a definite must read. Raymond E Feist is a fantastic author and doesn’t at all fall short in this book.
As always Pug’s character is one of my most favourites. It’s as though the lands just can’t be saved in the right way unless Pug has a hand in it. However in this book he is much needed to destroy the hateful Leso Varen. of purse it isn’t as easy as just killing him with a knife, but as always Pug and the Conclave manage to succeed in the most adventurous way.
Overall, I believe anyone interested in the fantasy genre would kick themselves for not diving into this series. I give the book a rating of 9.5 /10 stars.
