Reviews

The magician Pug and his Conclave of Shadows has beaten back the threat of civil war stemming from the terrorist actions of the Nighthawks, but another, darker threat arises that stems not from the world of Midkemia but from another realm, home of the murderous Dasati warriors. To save his world, Pug, his son Magnus, and two other companions must find a way to enter the world of the Dasati, an action that might mean their deaths. The author of Magician, Flight of the Nighthawks, and numerous other novels set in the world of Midkemia now introduces a new dimension to his universe and added new depth to recurring characters while creating fascinating new heroes and villains. With a fast pace and clean, crisp storytelling, this fantasy saga belongs in most libraries. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Praise for Raymond E. Feist and 'Flight of the Night Hawks': 'File under guilty pleasure.' Guardian 'Get in at the start of a master's new series.' Daily Sport

Feist's competent but uninventive second installment to his Darkwar Saga (after 2006's Flight of the Nighthawks) follows Pug the wizard and his grandsons-Jommy, Tad and Zane, now of military age-on their various magic-enhanced and bloody military quests to defy evil. Pug's search for the renegade sorcerer Leso Varen takes him from the land of Midkemia into the realm of the bloodthirsty Dasati, who are planning a war on behalf of their Dark God. Feist's narrative also follows the coming-of-age of the young Dasati warrior Valko, whose eventual enlightenment makes him an ally for Pug. Meanwhile, Pug's grandsons go to the University of Roldem, take commissions in its embattled army and prove themselves formidable soldiers. The author's depictions of battles, torture and the Social Darwinism of the ruthless Dasati society may not be suited to fantasy readers of all ages, but Feist's fans will look forward to the saga's final episode.
