5.0 out of 5 stars One of the finest books I have had the pleasure to read, 11 Nov 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Magician (Riftwar Saga) (Paperback)
I have never before been compelled to write a review, but feel the splendour of this magnificent novel deserves further praise.

I am somewhat new to the fantasy genre, having only read Philip Pullman's Dark Materials trilogy about ten years ago, and Iain Banks' Transition in recent months.

In all truth, I had never heard anything of Feist's books, and it was only by chance that I saw Magician on offer on Amazon. I read the description and thought it sounded a promising concept. It only took a few pages before I was completely hooked - transported to a faraway world I immediately wanted to know all about. We are taken on an incredible journey through the author's wildest imagination.

Feist's ability to transport his readers to his world is matched only by his ability to create believable, three-dimensional characters. The usual fantasy characters are all here, plus a whole host of new friends and foes to get to grips with.

I won't harp on and on as I don't want to give away any of the plot. What I will say is this - If you enjoy epic fantasy, or even just appreciate great writing, then this is the book for you.

I've just finished this book in the last half hour and I intend to start the second in the trilogy this evening. Magician is one of the finest books I have ever had the pleasure to read, and has rekindled my own desire to write fiction. In a word, a masterpiece.
