The writing was pedestrian, the story uninspired, the plot ludicrous, the characters one-dimensional, and the series overall reads like a D&D adventure. But what can I say? I really enjoyed this book! It is refreshing these days to read a heroic fantasy in which the good guys are unambiguously good and the ending is unambiguously happy, and in terms of providing escape, this is pretty much as far out as far out fantasy gets. Feist is not a master of his craft, but he knows how to keep you turning the pages. And you know, D&D really isn’t so bad; I kind of miss it.
