Another terrible effort,
This review is from: A Kingdom Besieged (The Chaoswar Saga, Book 1) (Midkemian Trilogy 1) (Hardcover)
If you explored the Hall of Worlds for a thousand years you will still fail to find an author as lazy as Feist. He writes the same things over and over again. The same sentences, expressions, phrases have been littering his books for the last ten years. The reason? This lazy author can not be bothered. His word processor probably has auto complete enabled to automatically turn "6 inches" to "six inches over six feet in height". I wish that was the only one, I could put up with that. But reading his mercifully short book had me face palming every ten minutes.
Why do I read his tortuous books? Because he somehow managed to write a great series when he started out (Riftwar) and I want to know how it ends. Well done Feist, I am a mug. You win.
Straight after finishing A Kingdom Besieged I picked Steven Eriksen's A Crippled God up off the shelf. I could not wait, the filth of Feist had to be washed away immediately. It was a tonic.
