I have no recollection of ever disliking a Book by Feist. I have tried to read everything he has written. His character portrayal and plot development are outstanding. This book is set in a medieval type of environment. Five kingdoms ascribe to the Covenant which is a peace accord when one organizes a betrayal of the
, the Firemanes. Daylon Dumarch, the Baron of Marquensas, is an unwilling participant in the betrayal and is fraught with guilt. The plot revolves around Hatu and Declan who eventually find each other. kingdom of Ithrace
Feist books are always a treat. He leavens this book with a touch of magic but it is primarily the maturation of Hatu and Declan who, no doubt, will be the principals in books to come. The weave of the book is tight with each seeming aside being pulled into the main theme. I can’t wait to see what abilities will be attributed to the Firemane.
This is an excellent book and I highly recommend it.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
