About the Author

Feist is now firmly established as one of the world's leading fantasy writers. His Riftwar and Serpentwar Sagas have been global bestsellers for years. Born and raised in Southern California, Raymond E. Feist was educated at the University of California, San Diego, where he graduated with honours in Communication Arts. He is the author of the bestselling and critically acclaimed Riftwar Saga. He is co-author (with Janny Wurts) of Daughter of the Empire, Servant of the Empire and Mistress of the Empire. The Conclave of Shadows continued his phenomenal success, and includes bestsellers Talon of the Silver Hawk, King of Foxes and Exile's Return.


This first of a new fantasy trilogy from bestseller Feist (Exile's Return) reintroduces a now ancient but well-preserved Pug (the juvenile hero of Magician) plus numerous generic situations, not the least of which is the return of Pug's old nemesis, the evil wizard Sidi, and a further menace that threatens the land of Midkemia. All the characters talk in completely 21st-century vocabulary, and while some of the inhabitants of the imaginary setting have unusual names suggestive of alien language and culture, we also meet folks named Miranda, Tomas, Magnus, Caleb and Zane. The result does not add up to any sense of a real, other place like Middle Earth or Earthsea, in which mythic events might plausibly occur. Those looking for the numinous wonder of Tolkien or the beautiful language of Ursula Le Guin will have to look elsewhere, but readers seeking to move one step up from adventure-gaming tie-in novels will find this a good starting place.

Last seen in Exile's Return, top sorcerer Pug has such a nasty dream that he calls for a Conclave of Shadows. When two boys arrive at the conclave by accident, they're drafted to battle the evil Nighthawks. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
