Where has the fantasy gone?,
By A Customer
This review is from: Prince of the Blood (Riftwar Series) (Paperback)
After reading the first threee books of Feist's amazing riftwar saga I looked forward to Prince of the Blood. But I was in for a surprise. Firstly, this book is set some twenty years after the events of the riftwar, so Feist decided to kill off some older characters during those years. Secondly, the fantasy elements that made his first books, seem to have disappeared. Thinking I was buying a fantasy book, I was quite disapointed. But the good story and characters nearly make up that. If you enjoyed the first books, and you really want to know whats happens to the twin boys, Borric and Erland during their cross into adulthood, I fully recommend it.
