Getting better after a drop in quality of previous books,
This review is from: Flight of the Night Hawks (Darkwar, Book 1) (Paperback)
Personally I felt the conclave of shadows books that precede this are the wealest of the Midkemia novels. Not that they are bad but merely average, here Feist takes the story he has been building slowly and changes up a gear. It feels more epic, there is a greater sense of urgency and more importantly a ripping yarn.
If you have never read one of Feists books stop reading now and look up magician, this is not the place to start. It is familiar territory, action, intrigue, magic and murder. The usual staples are here as are many familiar faces, while I make this sound like feist by numbers I should say that part of the appeal of reading an ongoing saga is the familiarity with the world and its populas.
If you have read feist before you won't be disappointed.
