This is my favorite series of all time Feist got me back into reading when I couldn t stomach YA and didn t know where to go from there, when so much was changing along with my reading taste that I didn t even know what to look for in a book The complexity of the plot, the sub plots, and the most massive over arching plot I have ever encountered, is astounding and wonderful I expected at least some of the main characters to be obnoxious, but instead I got three beautiful princes, each with th This is my favorite series of all time Feist got me back into reading when I couldn t stomach YA and didn t know where to go from there, when so much was changing along with my reading taste that I didn t even know what to look for in a book The complexity of the plot, the sub plots, and the most massive over arching plot I have ever encountered, is astounding and wonderful I expected at least some of the main characters to be obnoxious, but instead I got three beautiful princes, each with their own brand of kindness and leadership, plus a great magician and his supportive, capable best friend I love everything about these books, and Feist completely changed my life I have read many other great books in the last years because of this series This book, like most others of this genre, is basically about the struggle between good and evil, but I think it presents its argument in a very unique way, especially using science fiction e.g the settings on two different planets as well as time travel There is also racial tensions between the inhabitants of both planets A good reflection of the modern world, I really liked the first two books in the series essentially the coming of age story of Pug as he becomes a magician , but didn t enjoy the latter two books Silverthorn and A Darkness at Sethanon, which struck me astypical epic fantasy fare, so overall 3 stars. I read these many years ago as a kid and thought that Pug was the bomb I was amazed at the magic and the depictions of war as not only blood and guts but an impressive exercise in tactics Lordy, I hadn t even read LOTR at this point Perhaps these books will still hold up upon a re read, continuing Feist s worlds where I had left off at the then current 4th book I loved it then, perhaps I ll still love it now. Raymond E Feist may have earned himself a name but for me his writing is nothingthan mediocre From the beginning of the first book I could tell the Saga would be fairly dry but, like any devoted reader, I soldiered on These books aren t all bad mind you, there are some saving graces though the captivating battles and torture scenes are sparse Mainly, the book sports a cacophony of pointlessness Pointlessness chiefly due to vapid, sophomoric writing and the inconsiderate use of cliches Raymond E Feist may have earned himself a name but for me his writing is nothingthan mediocre From the beginning of the first book I could tell the Saga would be fairly dry but, like any devoted reader, I soldiered on These books aren t all bad mind you, there are some saving graces though the captivating battles and torture scenes are sparse Mainly, the book sports a cacophony of pointlessness Pointlessness chiefly due to vapid, sophomoric writing and the inconsiderate use of cliches Considering the potential for scale in this saga Feist did a horrific job conveying the magnitude of the events unfolding The character development was so weak and without any zeal that I was in fact repelled by many of them I found myself not caring who lived or died In fact, I would have preferred if the author had started killing people off just to start spicing things up To Feist s credit a few of the characters were interesting like the thief boy Jimmy, and the dragon rider Tomas who inspired Paolini s Eragon In summation these books are worth a brief skim but nothingThis saga is not endearing in any way
