Another page-turner from Feist,
This review is from: Rise of a Merchant Prince (The Serpentwar Saga, Book 2): Serpentwar Saga Bk. 2 (Paperback)
Despite focusing on Roo and his rise to the dizzying heights as the richest man in Krondor (if not the Kingdom), this is a worthy sequel to "Shadows of a Dark Queen" and continues to set the scene for the rest of the series.
As mentioned in other reviews, there are also episodes of Calis/Erik returning to Novidus, unravelling more of the mystery there which add blood-and-guts action to the mercantile battles facing Roo.
All in all, an excellent book, well worth reading if you're a fan of Feist.
