4.0 out of 5 stars High adventure and a departure for Feist, 28 Jun. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Prince of the Blood (Mass Market Paperback)
This novel is really one of Feist's best. Let's get real here: Feist could never be accused of being a great writer but what he does he does very well; and that is constructing shallow but entertaining fantasy adventure tales with likeable characters that offer a few hours of escape. Not that I'm complaining about that. I've been a fan since Magician.
This one is a bit of a departure for Feist being a stand alone adventure in Midkemia and more of a 'journey fantasy' than the strictly plot based Riftwar Saga books. As usual a slow start soon ratchets up into high action and adventure as Princes Borric and Erland traverse the great desert in Kesh on a diplomatic mission. They encounter assassins and the infamous Durbin Slavers Guild before running into Feist's two best characters: Ghuda and Nakor the Isalani (my personal favourite!) and eventually on into the Imperial City where they become enmeshed in the Empire's own seething political intrigues. This is actually my favorite Feist novel (even though Magician was a more original and fully realized tale with engaging characters).
