Reviews

Based on the award-winning Betrayal at Krondor computer game, this launch of a new series set in Feist's popular Riftwar world (Magician, etc.) lacks originality but offers plenty of action and enough familiar and new characters to keep loyal fans of Feist and that computer game happy. Squire Locklear has been sent to the Northlands after some trouble with a married man's wife. There, he captures Groath, a renegade Dark Elf who warns him that the Dark Elves are again rising up in a plot against the humans. The dream name "Murmandamus" has been revived and all manner of folk are flocking to his banner, even though those few in the know are aware that Murmandamus was simply a ruse in the last war, an illusion in which the Dark Elves were forced to believe and for which they were made to give their lives. Together, the Squire and the Elf travel to give this dire news to the Prince of Krondor, meeting along the way young Owyn, a magician with more desire than skill. Also joining in the deeds of derring-do are Jimmy the Hand, a former thief now promoted to King's Man, and Patrus, a field magician who was Owyn's first mentor. As disasters pile up, these valiant hunks struggle to foil the various evil plots that surround them before the Riftworld is embroiled in yet another messy interdimensional battle. Women barely make an appearance in this book, and the writing can be sloppy, but because in SF familiarity so often breeds content, those who played the game and now want to read the story may not care. (Oct.)

"ORIGINALITY AND WIT...A ROLLICKING TALE...[FEIST'S] NARRATIVE SKILL, INGENUITY AT CREATING SYSTEMS OF MAGIC, AND EYE FOR PLAUSIBLE MILITARY SCENARIOS STAND HIM IN GOOD STEAD. HIS MANY FANS WILL BE PLEASED".
