Summary

The second book in the Darkwar series, from worldwide best-selling author of Magician, Raymond E. Feist.

Chaos threatens to overwhelm two worlds as the most dangerous force ever encountered threatens to invade Midkemia, while the most treacherous magician in history, the madman Leso Varen, begins to wreak havoc on the world of Kelewan.

Pug and the Conclave of Shadows are determined to find Varen, only to discover that he has usurped the body of one of the most powerful men in the Empire of Tsuranuani, a Black Robe and member of the Assembly of Magicians. Pug has the almost impossible task of uncovering the true identity of the fiendish magician in an entire city full of Black Robes.

Murder, mayhem, horror, and the darkest evil await Pug's son, Magnus, and his companions as they attempt to discover the ultimate source of the terrible threat that hovers over Midkemia and Kelewan. Leading a desperate expedition into the realm of the Dasati, the vast and malevolent empire which is threatening his homeworld, Magnus hopes to find the key to defeating this enemy who is capable of overwhelming the combined might of two worlds.

But even if he does, the companions will have a desperate struggle to return home with their vital information. Three worlds will teeter on the brink of destruction as the third Riftwar, the Darkwar, is unleashed.

Compelling

Like Flight of The Nighthawks, this kept me hooked and wanting to continually listen at every possible opportunity. A good follow on and the core story is really picking up pace. I cannot wait to get into the next one.

Excellent


Highly recommended. Feist is a master storyteller, and it's very well read by Peter Joyce. Setting the series up for a rivetting finish.

Back on track

Much better than the first darkwar book. I still don't know why we have to follow the three boys. Their efforts seem detached and inconsequential in the big scheme of things.
But this book is good anyway.

Excellent. Raymond's books just keep getting better. Love the contrast in dynamics between the young knights and Pugg's group on the third plane.

Breath of Fresh Air

After a series of somewhat shallow books developing mostly known characters and little in terms of overall story development, at last the author gave us a breath of fresh air!

A new world, fresh characters and a vibrant story come together in a refreshing new book.

All masterfully told and brought to life by Peter Joyce.

Slightly dissapointing

Very abrupt ending. Messy storyline compared to previous books. Peter Joyce does a great job as usual
