I am afraid to say that i found King of Foxes to be a disappointment. Whilst it continued the Conclave of Shadows story line, it felt as Mr Feist was simply coasting along. Too much of what happened in the story was glossed over, and very little detail was given. On the plus side the book was well paced, and the pages slip by extremely quickly. However without a doubt this is not one of Mr Feist better efforts. I for one, will simply never be happy with explanations of the type 'well they have done bad things ! and hence must be punished' If there are evil plots, and greater depth to the story line, let your reader know it. Trust me, letting the readers have some insight does not distract from the story. As avid Feist readers will know, compare this book to Daughter of the Empire, when there were whole passages detailing both sides of the plot. This made for a compelling read. Sadly, King of Foxes, was not the book that it could have been.
