OK, its not another Magician but its not all bad either May 31 2011
By Manly Reading - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Thirty-odd years ago Feist wrote a book called Magician, about the rise to power of a pair of young boys, Pug and Tomas. There was then a few more volumes to create an excellent trilogy, and then a whole lot more storytelling. Perhaps part of the problem Feist created for himself is that at the end of that trilogy both Pug and Tomas are powerful, well-nigh unbeatable heroes. How do you maintain the challenge across another 25 novels?

Sometimes its easy to lose track of the scope of what Feist has written here: he has covered 100+ years, multiple generations, various physical locales, and yet still keeps going, at least for another few novels yet. What he has done is in one sense unparalled.

At the Gates of Darkness is best viewed as part of a greater whole. Yes, you can argue that Feist has one trick for a villlain, and that is reveal that they are a puppet for something even bigger and darker, but on the other hand he is pretty brutal with his characters too, not afraid to kill them off, either in battle or of old age, so for all that there is a view Feist writes "soft" stories, I have to disagree. With all that given though, this entry in the saga is somewhere between pedestrian and segway: it's a light read, able to be knocked over in a few hours, and enjoyable enough, but not earthshattering, for all its teases us with a new view of demons.

The star elf brothers Gulamendis and Loramendis get a lot of screen time, as does Amirantha and warrior-priest Sabreena. All characters have interesting quirks, but are not quite as fully rounded as (say) Arutha, Jimmy the Hand, or even Erik von Darkmoor. Still there is enough here to keep you reading. In a few years time perhaps this book will seem better with some necessary set up for later volumes, or perhaps it will be revealed as a pointless digression from the main plot. If you've read Feist before, get this: its not Feist's best work, but its still OK. If you haven't read Feist, don't start here: go get Magician, read that, and keep going from there as it pleases you.
Set firmly in the Feist tradition Feb. 6 2013
By The Reviewer Formerly Known as Kurt Johnson - Published on
Format: Hardcover
In this sequel to Rides A Dread Legion, Pug and the other members of the Conclave of Shadows find that their defeat of the Demon Lord Maarg bought them less time than they expected. An unholy alliance of necromancers and demons are seeking to open a rift, allowing demons into Midkemia, and the Conclave must put a stop to it, no matter what the cost.

OK, well I must start out by admitting that I am a huge fan of Raymond Feist, and have been for years. I thought that this was a good book, very much in keeping with his Serpentwar and Darkwar sagas. There is a lot of action and adventure and mosters and magic, and some interesting plot twists.

I agree, this isn't Mr. Feist's most original book, but I did like the previous books and I like this one! The end seems a bit tied up, which suggests that something different is going to happen in the next book (I hope).

What can I say? I really did enjoy this book. I found it an exciting and enjoyable read, one set firmly in the Feist tradition. I think a lot of this book, and can't wait until the next book comes out!

[By the way, I am still hoping that the author writes a book or series of books set in the Hall of Worlds.]
It hooked me in a way the first book struggled to. Aug. 7 2014

Definitely better than the first book in the duo ("Rides A Dread Legion"). This might be because the first book ended before the climax and felt like "too much" setup, but I think it's also because the author discovered the character's voices a little more and hence they feel a little less contrived.

It hooked me in a way the first book struggled to, and I'm tempted to continue reading other parts of the "saga" despite not being a huge fantasy reader (the tropes get to me!).
