I was given Magician as a present about a year ago and since then I have been avidly chasing up as many as I could find of Feist (and Wurts). The Daughter of the Empire took you through Mara's early adulthood when she was still really a child expected to run the Acoma House and not get assassinated in the process. You really feel for Mara as she is forced to marry for political stability and use her wiles to extricate herself and her heir. I often found myself being outraged at how she was treated in the marriage (which is I am sure the intention of the authors). The destruction of the Minwanabi House has become her goal in recompense for the deaths of her father and brother. The Servant of the Empire sees the House of the Acoma as strong but not without enemies. It focussed much more on the "barbarian" slaves and the class system than before. Mara buys Midkemian soldiers captured in the Riftwar but finds herself drawn to one, a tall red headed slave named Kevin. Unbenownst to Mara, Kevin is the son of a noble himself and so chaffs for his freedom greatly while being the leader by the rest of the Midkemians with him. Becoming Mara's lover, he is torn between his love for her and the seemingly inexplicable nature of her world where he is regarded as little more than her property. Mara is herself in turmoil as she finds herself challenging tradition more and more. All the while she is being systematically hunted by the family of her enemy house, and fears greatly for the life of her son. The story here intertwines with Magician but seen from the Tsurani world. The Destruction of the Games by Pug sent more ripples in motion than was ever considered in Magician from the Midkemian side. The Mistress of the Empire...well...I am only a couple of chapters into it but already it looks to surpass all that has gone before. I can't wait!

Format: Paperback
Servant of the Empire is the second book of the Empire triology, It is a superbly written book and you cannot stop yourself from being drawn in to the machinations of the 'Great Game'.

After winning a battle against the Minwanabi in the previous book, Mara, Lady of the Acoma, sets out to increase her families strength while pitting herself against the might of the empire.

What i like about this book, having already read Magician, is that you know some event's that will happen but you see it from a new perspective. Milamber at the Games, the betrayal by Kingdom forces.

All in all a brilliant read and my favourite of the Tsurani trilogy.

If you haven't read this series then do - you'll know why when you're still sat there at 4 in the morning keeping your eyes open with matchsticks but still unable to put the book down. Excellent characterization, particularly Kevin. (After you've read this series give REF's other books a read too - you won't be disappointed.

Builds wonderfully on the first novel. The action and keeps coming and the stakes rise each time. Excellent.

being a fan of this author i really enjoy his style and Jenny Wurts seems to add to it flawlessly. Wasn't sure I really liked the ending as it seemed rushed and cut short but still entertaining. The whole trilogy was a joy to read.

Second In the trilogy. The setting and characters expertly woven into the backdrop of a human vs alien cultures without sci-fi.
Fascinating how Feist continues the descriptive text and pulls the reader further into his fantasy worlds. It is so readable but must have been challenging to write!
