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.
If you like fantasy you will love this book as much as I did. This is one of the first real fantasy books I read that I fell in love with and immersed myself in. I read this book in one day and couldn't put it down. The way Raymond E. Feist uses the words to create a dream like world captured me inside its depths and held me still until the last word was finished and then I had to have the next book. (The Review for the other books will come soon) It was a good thing my brother had most of the books by Raymond E. Feist. I was able to get right into the next book and the story continued.
The main reason I started reading this one was that my brother was reading them and he told me pretty much that I would love them and had to read them. He let me borrow this one and that was it I was hooked.
I loved following the characters in their world and getting to know more about Pug ( the main character). I love the wars and the love in this story.
The way Feist writes is so vivid that every detail I could see in my head like I was sitting down and watching a movie instead of reading a book. I love with a writer can hold you and create the images in your head.
The twists and turns of this amazing book will keep you on your toes, I know it did for me. The way Feist, creates his own world ( love the map of the world in the front of the book) is so detailed that you feel like you are almost there walking through the trees with Pug and Kulgan, you almost feel as if you in Krondor itself. This is a wonderful saga that I could read all over again and it would still hold that magical feeling to it!
I loved the different races of characters in this book, like other fantasy books, there are plenty of elves, dwarfs, regular people, even amazing magicians. I couldn't get enough of the different characters in Feist's books!
I really hope you all read this book if you haven't. I know you wont be sorry!
My rating of this book is:
