The third novel in the besetselling Sepentwar series. Midkemia is once again under the terrible shadow of the Emerald Queen. Her demonic forces gathered at the distant land of Novindus, she is ready to launch a devastating invasion against the Kingdom of the Isles.
Two men stand in her way: Eric Von Darkmoor, battle-hardened soldier, and the Pug -- warrior of magical powers. But it soon becomes clear that deeper, darker forces are at play than the Queen's impending onslaught -- forces of an evil so great it could tear the whole world apart.
About the Author
Feist is one of the world's leading fantasy writers. His Riftwar and Serpentwar Sagas have been global bestsellers for years. Born and raised in Southern California, Raymond E. Feist was educated at the University of California, San Diego, where he graduated with honours in Communication Arts. He is the author of the bestselling and critically acclaimed Riftwar Saga.
Feist's fantasy saga continues (Shadow of a Dark Queen, 1994; Rise of the Merchant Prince, 1995) as the folk of Midkemia, already battling the snaky Saaur and their Emerald Queen, face an invasion of hungry demons seeking new wellsprings of toothsome lifeforce for their insatiable leader, Great Maarg. Returning to the fray are the familiar magicians Pug, Miranda, and Macros, along with soldiers Erik von Darkmoor and his sidekick, Roo Avery - and they will still need help from their former enemies, the Black Robes of Kelewan. There's probably a kitchen sink in here somewhere, too. Somehow, Feist always manages to wring out another plot twist or serape together a new and improved gaggle of bad guys to keep the stew bubbling; the real puzzle is how the fans tolerate his graceless, often downright inept prose and limping dialogue.
