“Feist has the universe firmly under his control.”
Contra Costa Times

“Feist has a natural talent for keeping the reader turning pages.”
Chicago-Sun Times

Midkemia’s fifth and final Riftwar—the devastating Chaoswar—explodes in the opening volume of Raymond E. Feist’s spectacular new epic fantasy trilogy of magic, conflict, and world-shattering peril. A Kingdom Besieged is a breathtaking adventure that brings back Pug—first introduced in Feist’s classic debut novel, Magician, and now Midkemia’s most powerful sorcerer—who faces a major magical cataclysm that forces him to question everything he’s ever held as true and dear…including the loyalty of his beloved son Magnus. The Chaoswar promises to be the crowning achievement in the three decades-long career of a New York Times bestselling master fantasist who rules the sword and sorcery universe along with Terry Goodkind, George R. R. Martin, and Terry Brooks.

    " Now to find the next one. "

    " Love, love, love these books! :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rich Carducci | 1/6/2014

    " Excellent read, Feist has come back with a great story. His last two book cycle lacked a bit but he has come back much stronger and the twist at the end was fantastic and has me wanting for the next book. For those criticizing the book because they have not read the others, that is unfair and I recommend reading the other books and you will appreciate the story more. I feel he does just the right amount of retellng to refresh those who have been reading the series for years without delving too far into the past. I must admit I still favor the sections that focus on Pug as he is by far my favorite character, probably because he has been around since the beginning. Followers of the series will not be disappointed, newcomers I recommend starting with the beginning of the series. I really is a fantastic tale. Last comment: why only four stars? The book could have been longer and the story expanded on more. I am not necessarily a fan of 900 page over written epics (a la GRR Martin) but he certainly could have expanded this 350 page entry by about 100 pages or so and added some more richness to the tale. "

    " The ending was a bit anti-climactic. Not his best work, but it was OK "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danya | 12/27/2013

    " A very comfortable pace. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andre | 12/18/2013

    " Another Feist novel with the end of the world coming and heroic larger than life characters. A bit recipiesque but he does it well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susanne | 12/15/2013

    " Very nice and comforting to meet the "old gang" again :-). But why the spoiler mentions Pug's son is betraying him - gross overstatement!!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Willowamber | 12/8/2013

    " Too many strange names for me to remember who everyone was - kept having to back track to remind myself... it got irritating. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew Cranley | 11/4/2013

    " Another Feist book that enriches and expands the already wide and varied universe that is Midkemia "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leisuresuitlarry | 10/17/2013

    " Probably the best book since the Serpentwar series. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Neal | 10/12/2013

    " I used to really love Feist, but nowadays the dialogue makes George Lucas look like Oscar Wilde. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James Hurburgh | 9/7/2013

    " Sad to hear that this is the last series in the Riftwar Cycle, however this book is an amazing start to the end of the world Feist has created. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James | 8/7/2013

    " Had never read any of the Riftwar books and i felt like there was a lot of references to previous series. Liked characters and writing but the lack of knowledge of back story took something away for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gregory | 7/24/2013

    " It is on the weak side of four stars, but I did really like it. Had trouble putting it down. On the other hand, everything substantive I can think of to say about it contains spoilers, so I'll just leave it at that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorie | 1/18/2013

    " 3.5 stars, actually. I could see where i was going, and I hope he does the new storyline well in the next book. This one seemed almost like a primer for new readers, and a refresher for those of us who have read them all, but many long ago. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Johan | 7/16/2012

    " Still an entertaining read. Bit better than previous books. I hope the series will draw to an end soon. It feels like the author's creative juices have dried up some time ago. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Craig Leimkuehler | 12/4/2011

    " Pretty standard stuff, but I liked it. Comfortable like a good easy chair. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mitchell | 6/30/2011

    " A good book, as Feist always puts out. I'll admit, a lot of his newer stuff sort of runs together in my memory, such that I'm never quite sure where I am and which books I've read. That being said, I always enjoy his books, and look forward to more adventures with Pug. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alice Sabo | 6/7/2011

    " Only got about a 1/4 of the way in and gave up. Too many characters setting up action that I think should refer to previous books that I haven't read in too long to remember. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stargrave | 5/17/2011

    " Not worth reading if you haven't read and like his other books. I mistook the #1 as an entry point. Boring and blandly written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 5/11/2011

    " I clearly missed a lot of the in between ones definitely improved toward the end "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kris | 5/4/2011

    " Better than some, not his best, slightly below average for Feist. A Good story that felt a little short-changed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dennis | 5/2/2011

    " Ray outdid himself. New characters to truly enjoy again and a complete twist that I wasn't expecting at all.

    I can't wait for the next book. "

    " I greatly enjoyed this one! I've enjoyed all of the Midkemia books. In this one we meet some new characters and see many of the usual ones as well. I read it in one day. It is always hard for me to put down Feist's books! Can't wait for the next one! "
