    " While I did enjoy At The Gates Of Darkness, I must also admit I was a bit disappointed. Rides A Dread Legion set up a potential epic three sided conflict between The Star Elves, Midkemia and The Demon Hordes but, it never materializes. In fact if it weren't for the two outcast brothers helping Pug and company and a few mentions here and there, The Star Elves are all but, left out after being set up so predominately in the last book. What we get is entertaining as Pug and The COnclave Of Shadows are trying to stop the demons and their human ally, the mad sorcerer Belasco from a full scale invasion. But, the actual events are on a much smaller scale then what the set-up in book #1 appeared to be indicating and one feels a bit cheated. There is plenty of adventure and peril but, the confrontation we're waiting for erupts only in the final chapters and then is dealt with just as quickly. Raymond E. Feist is a master storyteller so, I was not bored and I was surely entertained, it's just that the first book delightfully sets up such an epic confrontation and what we get would serve to be a minor conflict in the middle of one of his earlier books. A letdown but, still a fairly entertaining one. "

    " Great entry into Fesit's decades-long epic Riftwar saga. I think I somehow skipped "Rides A Dread Legion", but wasn't confused much, so he did a great job of giving back story but managing to make it feel self-contained. The titles to his books are starting to sound a bit like emo-metal song titles, though. "

    " The book is classic Feist. THe read was a bit faster than some others of his books that are filled with more background which makes the book more exciting. The enemy in this book is so pervasive one wonders why the land of Midkemia did not confront this scourge full force a lot earlier in Feists' writing nonetheless the buildup to the confrontation is quite dramatic. I doubt any of Feists' trilogies can rival the ones with the legendary figure of Prince Arutha whose personality towered above the pages of the book nevertheless Pug assumes at least some of this mantle of leadership and acclaim even though his persona is not as dynamic as the Princes'. This leads to my last query which is i was expecting another trilogy here especially given the lack of conclusion to who is the hidden enemy behind the enemy. Perhaps the chaos wars will clear thus up however for those of us too busy to be involved in this daily it would be nice to have a clear sense of this. For my part, I surely hope a trilogy conclusion emerges from this series before the one begins. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gary Gray | 1/21/2014

    " I've read all of Feist's books and enjoy each one, some are better than other but all are enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul Clark | 1/14/2014

    " Sequel to Rides a Dread Legion. Lives up to Feist's reputation though manages to be a little short. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate | 11/12/2013

    " Summed up by "Meh". Could do better..... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nupur | 10/29/2013

    " I made the mistake of picking up this one before reading the first part. Nothing in the style or the story to make me want to read another. A let-down. "

    " The adventure of Pug is starting to sound like Stargates...but still, its a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Oliver | 9/13/2013

    " exciting but a bit short (not even 300 pages)... clearly a setup for the Chaoswar series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trent | 3/14/2013

    " Pretty good, ending was a bit quick and anti climatic. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gerard | 2/1/2013

    " Read quite quickly over a week. Good storytelling with familiar characters. A little on the short side. Still leaves me wanting more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Todd | 7/17/2012

    " From Magician's Apprentice to this book Pug's character development is astounding. This is a solid book and worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wileyacez | 6/10/2012

    " Okay--excellent illustration of WHY I like Feist. The first book zoomed along, setting up plot. Second book slows up, makes you care about the various characters. By the time I got to the end, I couldn't wait for the next series to come out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andre | 4/19/2012

    " A new Feist novel. A continuation of the world story that is recipesque by now but well done and devoured quickly. "

    " The book didn't keep me interested enough, it was kind of boring. Didn't seem to be any different than other books of its type, I would of liked a little more action and suspense. "
