“Feist constantly amazes.”
“Feist has a command of language and a natural talent for keeping the reader turning pages.”
The Chaoswar—the fifth and final Riftwar—is in full, explosive swing in Raymond E. Feist’s A Crown Imperiled, the second book in the acclaimed, New York Times bestselling fantasist’s monumental saga of courage, conflict, and bitter consequence. Once again, Midkemia, the author’s brilliantly conceived fantasy milieu, is in gravest danger from outside invaders—and from treacherous forces within—as the death of a powerful leader throws the world into chaos and threatens all hope of enduring peace. Returning in A Crown Imperiled are some of Feist’s most memorable characters—including the great sorcerer, Pug, who has been a fan favorite since his introduction in the author’s beloved classic, Magician—and the action, as always, comes fast and furious. The Chaoswar Saga is the master fantasist working at the peak of his powers, and further proof why Raymond E. Feist, like Terry Goodkind, George R. R. Martin, and Terry Brooks, is one of the true giants of epic fantasy fiction.

I did not want to put this book down! I hate to wait on the next one but I will.
I've been a fan of Raymond Feist's books since Magician-Apprentice. I've enjoyed the continuity the series has brought, but each novel has progressively lost its allure.
This particular novel had some serious errors in terms of the storyline. There was a chapter wherein Pug had discovered something and in a later chapter is presented that Magnus had discovered it. It's so obvious that it makes you wonder if they proof read this before releasing it.
There are also a number of grammatical and spelling errors that just take away from enjoying this book.
I never thought I'd ever want a refund for a book. But sadly, in this instance I would.
Funny thing is I would still continue to buy his books simply because of my attachment to the characters. I just hope that Mr. Feist takes better care in the next book and think of his loyal fans and try to give us something worthy of his first 4 novels on Midkemia.
A kingdom besieged
Excellent on of his better efforts in the last four years.
