5.0 out of 5 stars An absolutely great book!, 15 Aug 2003
By 
Kurt A. Johnson (Marseilles, IL USA) - See all my reviews
In the far off town of Crydee, two boys prepare for their upcoming apprenticeships. Thomas dreams of being a great warrior, winning great renown, and becoming an accustomed guest of the elves, while Pug dreams of becoming a great magician, the most powerful in the world. When men of the Tsurani Empire on a far-off world open a magical rift to Pug and Thomas's world, a great war begins, a war that will lead the boys on adventures beyond their wildest imaginations.
This is the first book in a two-book series that describes a great war between worlds. The Kingdom is based on medieval Europe, while the Tsurani are based on Asian (primarily Japanese) cultures, which provide for some fascinating interactions - Knights, elves and dwarves on one side, and honor-bound warriors, magicians and fantastic creatures on the other.
This is an absolutely great book, which is sure to please any fan of fantasy literature! At the beginning, you may expect it to be another repetition of themes found in J.R.R. Tolkien, but author Raymond Feist quickly moves beyond the familiar, and carries the reader into a whole new world. I found this book to be completely impossible to put down, and I highly recommend it to everyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing fantasy classic., 9 Sep 2012
This book is one of the best fantasy books available in the market. Written in simple layman language makes it easy to identify with the characters, the story is very moving and throughout the whole book, you can't stop but amaze yourself about the wonders this fantasy-epic adventure has to offer. It was also the first fantasy book I read when I was a youngster. I still remember how it broadened my mind's eye scope of the world, the world of fantasy, of course!
