The whole of the magnificent Riftwar Cycle, by bestselling author Raymond E. Feist, is now available in ebook
The world had changed even before I discovered the foreign ship wrecked on the shore below Crydee Castle, but it was the harbinger of the chaos and death that was coming to our door.
War had come to the Kingdom of the Isles, and in the years that followed it would scatter my friends across the world. I longed to train as a warrior and fight alongside our duke like my foster-brother, but when the time came, I was not offered that choice. My fate would be shaped by other forces.
My name is Pug. I was once an orphaned kitchen boy, with no family and no prospects, but I am destined to become a master magician…
Magician is the first book in Raymond E. Feist’s acclaimed Riftwar Saga. The trilogy continues with book two, Silverthorn.
“Epic scope… vivid imagination… a significant contribution to the growth of the field of fantasy.”

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
An influential touchstone of modern fantasy, Raymond E. Feist’s 1982 debut novel Magician has since spawned more than 30 books in the Riftwar Cycle, with a television adaptation in the works. This first book introduces apprentice magician Pug, who helps to repel demonic invaders arriving in his native Midkemia through a tear in the spacetime continuum. Besides introducing Pug and other enduring characters that feature in Feist’s later series, the ambitious novel spans entire worlds. Yet the grand narrative is grounded by intimate character work involving Pug and his allies, while familiar fantasy staples like elves, dwarves and rival kingdoms are given a fresh treatment. This remains the entry point into the expansive Riftwar universe.
This was one of the first novels i read about 7 years ago and the one that got me hooked on si-fi, fantasy novels, well worth the read over and over again
A must read for the Fantasy genre
Brilliant story telling that captivates from the opening pages to the very end.
The beginning of a legendary saga!
If you like old school fantasy (like I do) then you will love this entire series. This book has it all, adventure, magic, elves, dwarves, dragons and extremely well written battles that leave you breathless. I highly recommend ‘Magician’, this book is one of my all time favourites.
