From the New York Times bestselling author of the Riftwar Cycle—including the original Riftwar, the Serpentwar, the Darkwar, the Demonwar, and now the Chaoswar—comes the latest entry in one of the most treasured and enduring sagas in modern fantasy.

A Crown Imperilled

War rages in Midkemia once again, and behind the chaos, disquieting evidence points to dark elements at work.

As enemies march across the realm wreaking destruction, its brave and loyal defenders battle to survive—a struggle made more perilous now that Jim Dasher's trusted intelligence network has been cleverly dismantled. Region by region, Midkemia is being ripped apart, and the loyal spy and his allies find themselves overpowered at every turn.

Signs of the kingdom's impending doom surround them. King Gregory of the Isles has yet to produce an heir. Roldem and Rillanon have each been plagued by palace coups that threaten to topple their thrones. Lord Hal of Crydee and his great friend Ty Hawkins, champion swordsman of the Masters' Court, have been entrusted with smuggling Princess Stephané and her lady-in-waiting, the lovely and perplexing Lady Gabriella, out of Roldem to safety. But the rising danger has made finding refuge treacherous.

Nowhere is safe, including Ylith, Midkemia's strategic bastion, where Hal's younger brothers Martin and Brendan hold off an onslaught of brutal Keshian Dog Soldiers and a mysterious force from beneath the sea. Yet courage alone is not enough to withstand the continued enemy assault. Without reinforcements, hope of success fades. Martin, Brendan, and their compatriots know that while losing Crydee, the legendary city on the kingdom's edge, would be devastating, the realm can still be saved. But if Ylith falls, all is lost.

As Jim, Hal, and all their brothers in arms fight for their lives, Pug and the Conclave of Shadows embark on a magical quest to hunt down the dark force orchestrating the destruction before Midkemia is annihilated. And time is running out. . . .

    " I've been following Feist for years and I'm happy at every new one. This is not the best written, most original fantasy novel (I find them very recipe-esque) but is a satisfying one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julian Froment | 2/18/2014

    " This was a great book - however I was disappointed by the massive amopunt of spelling mistakes, grammatical errors and even a few sections where the wrong character was involved. For example where Pug was involved in tracking the Pantathians, when it should have been Magnus, or why did Magnus have to explain to Pug about the discovery of them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rich | 2/18/2014

    " Can't wait for the next book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrew Loach | 2/9/2014

    " I enjoyed the story, although toward the end I am a bit concerned about the level of escalation. What really hurt my reading experience was that my copy (and perhaps this was particularly the case for the e-book, I don't know) seemed to be poorly proofread, and to frequently have repeated or missing words. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 1/30/2014

    " I like the characters and convoluted plot in this one. Feist continues writing with extremely poor English, but I suppose I've gotten used to it enough to simply ignore it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Blake | 1/22/2014

    " As always, Raymond Feist keeps the pages turning, chapter after chapter, with amazing characters you never want to see die. Been reading his books for so long, his NEW books are as comfortable as a good cup of coffee in the morning or after a good meal. I am already wishing the next book was out so I can continue the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Johan Roets | 1/16/2014

    " Can't wait for the last book, setting a brilliant stage! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arno Vosfox | 6/26/2013

    " I don't know who he does it but somehow he keeps expanding the storyline, finding new stuff to throw in the story. Just amazing once again :D I'll have to read it another time I guess to fully understand all the new story lines but that doesn't matter;D "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bob Pilkington | 12/9/2012

    " This could be good, but was let down by really poor editing and clumsy proof reading. "

    " I liked this more than any of the previous 3 or 4 books. It's almost restored some of my faith in REF. "

    " Interesting, I am assuming there is one more to come or is this the end? "

    " Really good book, the last couple of books i thought were good but had nothing to suck me in or surprise me, until this one, and it ended on a massive cliffhanger, i cant wait to see what happens. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Edward Klose | 5/31/2012

    " I thoroughly enjoyed it! It looks like we are headed to the end of the series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristine | 5/30/2012

    " While I enjoyed the story, I was incredibly frustrated by the appalling editing. The problems with continuity and character, spelling, grammar, missing words and phrases made this book hard work to read. I'm a fan of Feist's work, but don't think I'll be reading any new book by him in future. "
