I hate having to do this with an author who was once my favourite but here comes another poor review.....

I guess I shouldn't have been overly surprised given his recent efforts (for my main gripes, see my review of King Of Foxes) but like many loyal readers, I simply wanted to know what happens to a number of characters and worlds about whom I care greatly. I've felt that he has been rushing his books for too long, probably spending six months every year putting his feet up (and why not, he's earned the right to do so) but then spending the remaining six hastily putting together as many pages as he can muster in a short space of time in order to meet his publishers' demand that he put out a book roughly every twelve months.

The last book, Into A Dark Realm, ended so abruptly that I thought maybe Feist had died before he finished writing it. This latest offering literally picks up where the last one left off without any recap whatsoever, almost as though he threw what he had written at the publisher in order to meet their deadline and then carried on writing, so as a standalone book it would make almost no sense to a reader who hadn't read the last couple of books. Other reviewers have mentioned the factual mistakes so I won't go into these apart from to say that it simply isn't good enough. Equally, the number of typos in the book is disgraceful; HarperVoyager should hang their heads in shame.

I understand that Feist has started work on his next series and I pray that he will be allowed time to do them justice. I really don't care if I have to wait five years for the first book if that means it could present some value for money.

I finished this book feeling fairly satisfied with the ending: questions were answered - major ones - character arcs were tied off, and storylines were brought together and concluded. But it simply doesn't captivate like the Riftwar and Serpentwar Sagas.

The characters aren't developed, explored and furthered enough; I never feel like I know or can relate to many of Feist's newer characters. I also feel I'm losing touch with Pug and Tomas (barely used, and where he was, it didn't really fit into the conclusion), as their emotions and motivations aren't explored as they used to be, or as authors like Jordan or Martin might do. To be fair, Feist has always focused on scope, grandeur and philosophy (and on this last he's still the best), but it wouldn't kill him to explore his main characters more fully. Instead the feeling is that he's ploughing on doggedly for the ending - the last 30% - the best stuff of this entire Darkwar Saga.

And this last 30% IS really good. Oldschool Feist - scope, ambition, twists, ruthlessness and a load of action and magic. Very entertaining stuff. We find out the truth about that mercurial and brilliant character, Nakor, and the strange young warrior, Ralan Bek. Bek is one of Feist's best creations since Serpentwar, and his nature and abilities were always a pleasure to read about. The truth behind Nakor wasn't handled as well as it could have been, but was by no means a failure - it is just that you can sum his role up in a sentence, instead of listening to the luxury of his life story, as every Nakor fan yearns to do. We also have a twist in the foes the Conclave think they are facing - a good one, but one that reminded me too much of a big one we've witnessed before. Come to think of it, we've witnessed it twice before...

4.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better, but still good 30 April 2009
By R. Bell
A must read for any Feist fan. I agree with the other reviewers that it is not as good as his earlier works, but I still read it through without putting it down once.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best for a long time! 12 Oct 2008
The last few Feist books, whilst all very good, have had the feel of "smaller" novels without the grandeur of scope that the Magician or Serpentwar series had.

This is back to the things that brought us to Midkemia and Kelewan in the first place. Vast empires, lots of magic and feeling of scale - the feeling of the Riftwar. Huge of scope - this is a rollicking ride with a stupendous ending.

There could be at least two full books in this one and I look forward to the 20th anniversary "directors cut"

Read it, and then like me - read it again.

This is the last book in Feist's the Darkwar trilogy, now for a bit of the story.

In this novel we see the evil and blood thirsty Dastai gain a foothold in the world of Kelewan, the Tsurani warriors do there all to fight agianst the death magic of the Dastai mages and the brutality of there warriors, on there side though they have some of the great military leaders of Midkemia, Eric Von Darkmoor, the former Duke Kasper and from the far land of of Novindus the general Alenburga to fight and lead the warriors, but will that be enough? On the Dastai home world we see Pug and his followers battle the evil Dread Lord and his minions with the aid of the white, a political and military group of Dastai who strive for the good of their people, but will they all make it out of the battle alive?

This is a good book, it's no where near as good as his previous work but it is still worth reading, the one point the irked me was in the book we see Feist tell that Eric Von Darkmoor served all his like with the Kingdom and was never married or had children, when any fan of Erik's knows his was married to Kitty in the Serpent war saga, this mistake is unforgivable when you consider Erik is one of the main characters in Fiest's work, hence the reason for three stars and not four.

I hope this review was of some help to you.
