This review is from: Krondor: The Assassins (The Riftwar Legacy, Book 2) (Paperback)
As a fan of the Riftwar saga, this book, and The Betrayal are no where near up to the same standard. It is patently obvious that this was taken from a role playing computer game, with characters more set in their "types" of theif, fighter, magician etc. Part of the success and readability of the first works of his is that they were supra-types: characters rose above the shallow but necessary compartments of the role playing genre and characters such as Thomas became mighty warriors also imbued with magic, and characters such as Arutha had none of these traits yet still managed to become the lead character. With this new series we clearly see that characters have been put in neat little boxes and Feist rushed this out to make a quick buck.
