The astonishing first volume in Raymond E. Feist's bestselling Serpentwar series...Ancient powers are readying themselves for a devastating confrontation, and a dark queen has raised a standard and is gathering armies of unmatched might. Into this battleground of good and evil a band of desperate men are forced whose only hope for survival is to face this ancient power and discover its true nature. Their quest is at best dangerous and at worst suicidal. Among them are some unlikely heroes - Erik, a bastard heir denied his birthright, and his friend Roo, an irrepressible scoundrel with a penchant for thievery are accompanied by the mysterious Miranda upon whom all must wager their lives. She appears to be an ally but also possess a hidden agenda and may prove to be a more deadly foe when the final confrontation is at hand...

About the Author

Raymond E. Feist was born and raised in Southern California. He was educated at the University of California, San Diego, where he graduated with honours in Communication Arts. He is the author of many titles, including the bestselling and critically acclaimed 'Riftwar' saga. Feist lives in Sante Fe.


A dark and alien peril casts an lengthening shadow over Midkemia as another Riftworld saga begins almost a generation after the events in The King's Buccaneer . Erik von Darkmoor, bastard son of the local baron, flees to the city of Krondor after accidentally killing his legitimate and sadistic half-brother. Condemned to death, Eric and his childhood friend, Rupert (Roo) Avery, are provisionally spared to serve in a desperate mission against the reptilian Pantathians, who plan to conquer Midkemia and bring back their goddess, Alma-Lodaka, one of the ancient Dragon Lords. The boys undergo brutal training and join others of their kind under the half-elf Calis, known as the Eagle of Krondor, in a bid to pass as mercenaries in the continent of Novindus, current battle center for the Pantathians and their reluctant allies, the also-reptilian Saaur. A sensitive coming-of-age tale in which brutality and camaraderie are equally present, Feist's newest saga has a freshness of vision that suggests it will avoid the staleness that often eats away at multivolume epics. Author tour. (July)

Once again Raymond Feist confirms his status as one of the most entertaining authors of this generation. The compelling plot prohibited me from putting the book down, and I’m currently keenly awaiting his next novel. Fantastic plot, fantastic characters, a fantastic book. Shadow of a Dark Queen is a must-read for anyone with the vaguest interest in fantasy.

The second book in this amazing series. The evil Pantathians are on the move and get and trouble is brewing in the west. Old rivals have banded together to fight a force that seems to ever ending power and support. Lots of great characters, lots of adventure and action. Lots of fighting scenes, bravery and magic. This is a great series
