Been a big fan of the series since the first book was published and really enjoyed this story. That said I am shocked a book so full of errors could get as far being published. Numerous missing, additional or nonsensical words is bad enough, but mixing up two of the main characters so that they swap places between the start and the middle of the book and therefore a large part of a chapter makes no sense definitely costs at least a star on the rating.

I have read Feist for over 20 years. I have all his books in hardback (bar Magician) and have read many of them up to 5 or 6 times. Especially the early ones. I am not the sort of person to write reviews normally but things are so wrong in this book. I have never seen anything like it.

First, about the book itself: The book is littered with spelling and grammatical errors. There are so many that it becomes very distracting. I don't understand how it got published in this state

Secondly, about the author/story: There is a massive continuity error in the story, with one main character suddenly turning into another later in the book and for the rest of the story. For an author as experienced as Feist to let this error be published is beyond words. Without all the errors I would have given the book 2 stars.

Thirdly, The whole story: To me it had been clear for a number of years the Frist is tired of this story and characters. If you compare the early books to those released later, there is no comparison. There is no background to characters anymore. There is no richness to the writing. The recent books have just been stories told about characters that you mostly don't care about.
It makes me sad but I feel they are churned out to keep the money rolling in, and not for the love of the characters/story any longer. I loved these stories and to feel like I have to write a review like this saddens me greatly. I read a comment from Feist about the problems with this book where he apologises for the errors, but dissapointingly goes on to say that it is only 1 book in his 30 year history. I think that contemptuous comment says it all.
The next book is the final one in this 30 year arc, and you may think I would now not purchase it. You would be wrong though.

Feist's latest offering deserves 4 stars, delivering just what you've come to expect and a step up from the last book leaving it above the average for the series as a whole. However...

The kindle edition is riddled with errors!

Frequently the wrong words seem to have been auto-selected by the spell checker it was run through, and there are an astounding number of sentences with words missing. I don't know if the print edition is any better but I'm amazed that any publisher could let a title as large as this go to market in such an unpolished state.

The sheer quantity of errors knocks one star off what is otherwise a great read.

It seems Raymond no longer cares for what used to be a wonderful franchise. I find it such a same that he is ruining what could be an amazing story.

It seems to me he tried to push out 400 pages of utter rushed nonsense every year cashing in on people who have followed him from the beginning. The typo's alone show Ray is just rushing to meet a yearly deadline.

As far as I am concerned, I'm done with this franchise unless either

a) Raymond lets Janny Wurts or someone similar and committed take over or
b) Gets his act together and outputs a story worth reading. By all means take 2 years if this is the best you can do after 1.

This franchise deserves a better ending than you are giving it. I would rather the story didn't end that be mutilated like this.

This review contains SPOILERS!

I'm actually just reading this last 3 novels in this series and have come upon what i think is the massive error. In A crown Imperilled we come to a part where Magnus is investigating some strange energy vortex at the Pantathaians to do with the sven gari (???) I must have not been paying attention to be honest as i am not sure who the sven gari are? Is it the eggs? The children of the Pantathians? Anyway to my amazement Pug is not there he is back at Sorcerer's Isle. Which surprises me as im sure he said he would be investigating the Isle of Snakes himself personally...oh wait i did read a chapter on Pug meeting the leader of the Pantathians...uhh so why later do Amirth and Sandreena tell Pug about the strange lizard folk and he knows nothing about how they are so different and so on etc... To be honest im just going through the motions to finish this series. It has lost whatever magic and love it had at the beginning (Magician, Darkness Sethanon et al). The plot of the last 3 books so far i'm afraid has been quite poor...there is a repetitive thread tendency of the main characters to do something then all discuss it in a Conclave meeting...endless meetings....then theres the constant harping about the past ConDoins or Jimmy the Hand...perhaps to get us to care about these current characters..sorry but many of the current crop are very poorly developed and Feist does a poor job of making us care about them. I think its a mistake to use a beloved character like Jimmy the Hand as a technique to make us like Jim Dasher (great great grandson) Its poor sorry. Also the plot development of bringing back "Miranda" and "Nakor" is frankly ridiculous....
