The whole of the magnificent Riftwar Cycle by bestselling author Raymond E. Feist, master of magic and adventure, now available in ebook
Twenty years have passed since the end of the Riftwar.
Prince Borric conDoin and his twin brother Erland have been summoned back to their father’s court in Krondor. Prince Arutha has decided he needs to tame his spirited progeny and teach them statecraft and responsibility. Shortly after they arrive home, therefore, he orders them to Kesh, to represent the Isles at the Empress’ seventy-fifth jubilee. But before the new ambassadors depart, they are attacked.
The foiled assassin’s suicide reawakens fears that the Nighthawks – a brotherhood of killers for hire – are active once more. But the truth is far more disturbing: the assassin was a member of the Royal House of Kesh…
Despite the dangers, Borric and Erland’s mission continues, it being vital to sustaining the fragile peace between the two nations. But the brothers have little idea of the exotic world of Kesh, the strange players at this alien court, nor the hidden forces intent upon tearing the empire apart.
“Epic scope… vivid imagination… a significant contribution to the growth of the field of fantasy.”
“Well-written… intelligent… intriguing.”

This welcome continuation of The Riftwar Saga picks up 20 years after A Darkness of Sethanon leaves off. In part a coming-of-age story, it tells of Borric and Erland, twin sons of the Prince of Krondor. Carelessly lighthearted, they soon learn the need for responsibility in times of danger. Borric, the elder, named heir to the throne of the Kingdom of the Isles, is sent with his brother in place of their father to the Jubilee of the empress of Kesh, a powerful neighbor. An attempt on Borric's life forces the party to follow a secret route. During a raider attack, Borric is seized as a slave and thought dead, leaving Erland as heir. While the royal entourage continues its trip, Borric escapes--but keeps his identity secret. Meanwhile, Erland has been introduced to the splendors of the palace of the world's most powerful ruler, and to the much looser sexual mores of the Keshians. He also begins to enjoy a position of prestige and influence. Several deaths occur before the plot against both countries can be unraveled in Feist's lively tale, where a solid backdrop and engaging characters inhabit a well-rounded fantasy land.
Riveting, entertaining, grabs you and won't let go!
