I have to confess to having read this triology (Daughter, Servant & Mistress of the Empire) maybe over a dozen times now. For me this is the ultimate science fantasy, and easily outstrips anything Feist does on his own, though I enjoy those too.
With Janny Wurts, Fiest manages to achieve a greater depth to his plots that otherwise he lacks in Riftwar etc.
By creating Mara as the central character, JW & REF explore interesting side issues that are lacking in other fantasy, where the dominant character is usually male.
The whole issue of the Tsurani culture and politics, though clearly taken from the Far East, is a novel and refreshing idea to put in a book, and the continual comparisions made to the 'barbarian world'of Midkemia throughout is a interesting moral byplay for the characters in the book. Particularly good are the characters Arakasi, with his Spy Network, the radical Light of Heaven who supports Mara covertly & Lujan, Mara's Force Commander (who could easily have been left behind in development). All characters are explored thoroughly and developed, to the point where sometimes you can almost pre-empt their actions as you get to know them. Even the 'bad guys' receive the same attention, which is unusual, and make compelling reading. Tasiao, the warmonger, Jiro, the scholar, but whose 1st advisor Chumaka, pits his wits against Arakasi in the third book, is a wonderful piece of writing. These really are the sort of books you can lose days reading. The intrigue is compelling, the quality of writing, both in narrative and dialogue surpasses anything that these 2 writers have achieved individually.

This final installment of the Empire saga is fantastic Feist at his best...(along with Janny).
I don't won't to give too much away but the book has an explosive start and from that point, it's impossible to put down. If you liked the last two, then you'll love this one and probably be reading it whenever, and wherever you can.
Mara has her biggest struggle for survival yet. Not only has she lost her beloved Kevin but she has to fight everyone who wants her dead to keep the Acoma name going. Even with her newly appointed title of Mistress of the Empire, there are mnay who are plotting her demise.
Enter Jiro of the Anasati. Still bitter over Mara's rejection of marriage many years ago, Jiro will stop at nothing to see her
delivered to the Red God. Mara also has to find out who is employing assasins to try and end the Acoma name. As she seeks the answers she gets further and further to the truth that a certain sector of the Empire do not wish to be uncovered.
Mara will have to face the Assembly of Magicians sooner or later, the almighty force of the Empire...they are beyond the law.
There is so much more to enjoy in this book. It involves a great journey Mara has to endure to seek the truth. New powers enter the story and a huge battle is drawing inexorably close.
The one thing I loved about this book is that it is an explosion of events. Things are happening all over the place and there is never a dry moment....like you find in the first and second novel.
Arakasi is also focussed on a lot more in this book. He belongs in the hall of Feist Legends (i.e Jimmy, Pug, Arutha, Nakor). The reason for him being the best Spy Master in the Empire is shown in a great chapter at the start of the book. And there is a great on-going battle of wits and subterfuge between himself and Jiro's right-hand man, Chumaka.
Please enjoy this book,...it's a great ending to a great saga.

For anyone who has read the first two books , this is a stunning ending to one of the best written trilogies ever, also the cho ja get to do something! If this is the first book you have looked at get "daughter of the empire" first or you'll be totally lost as the plot dose focus on alot of the politics in the other two books

I've read the majority of the REF books but have to say the 'empire' trilogy is the ebst of them all. A truly absorbing portrayal of a different (to western readers) culture. I especially appreciated the portrait of the 'heroine' of the books. It is rare to get a strong female lead character who isn't merely a cliched version of either the astoundingly beautiful yet fiesty princess or the warrior woman/amazon.

I'm reviewing Feists' (and those involved with him) works in Chronological order. Unfortunately for some books there are new books and covers being re-released in March 2013 so reviews for the old books can no longer be posted. Not so clever AMAZON.

Anyway this review is for the chronological reading of books by Feist and others that all link Medkemia and Kelewan and form the Riftwar Saga. This one is for Part 3 of Janny Wurts' trilogy culminating in the book. Mistress of the Empire.

SO intially it goes:-

Magician 5 stars
Jimmy the Hand 2 Stars
Horored Enemy 4 stars
Murder in LaMuT 3 stars.
Daughter of the Empire 5 stars
Silverthorn 4.5 stars
Darkness at Sethanon 5 stars
Servant of the Empire 5 stars
Mistress of the Empre 5 stars
and so on ... look for the rest of the reviews in the coming months.

The last and final book in the Riftwar link in from Janny Wurts is, in strange contradiction the worst and the best of the series. It's the best because it is a much 'fuller' story and a far more in depth look at plots and plans and the book takes on more of an 'Epic Quality' you feel there's far more going on, there's lots happening and it's a really great read. So why is this also the worst of the books. Well it panders and plays to a female reader far more. There's lots more emotional drama and a little bit too much of the 'happily ever after' syndrome. Janny pulls at the heart strings really well but at the same time she tied up the ends a little too tidily.
