Excellent book, plenty of action, interesting characters.

I've been a fan of Feist's books for about 8 years, and I've read almost all the Riftwar books and, having just finished it, I have to say that Honoured Enemy probably ranks among the best of his works. It may lack the epic scope and the feeling that worlds hang in the balance that other Riftwar books, such as Magician, have but this is possibly an advantage because the only thing that matters in this book is the fate of the characters who have to survive an extremely dangerous situation. The characterisation is good enough that it's easy to care about the fate of the two groups of soldiers from different worlds that have to fight together to survive. Even the enemy moredhel are well characterised with a strong motivation for the moredhel leader's hunt. The battle scenes in this book are as good as ever and seem quite authentic as well, although the final confrontation with the Moredhel was perhaps a bit short. In summary : a good back which I'd definetely recommend reading, even for people who haven't previously read any of Feist's books.
