"Totally gripping... A fantasy of epic scope, fast-moving action and vivid imagination." -- The Washington Post Book World
From the Publisher
"He held the fate of two worlds in his hands...
Once he was an orphan called Pug, apprenticed to a sorcerer of the enchanted land of Midkemia.. Then he was captured and enslaved by the Tsurani, a strange, warlike race of invaders from another world.
There, in the exotic Empire of Kelewan, he earned a new name--Milamber. He learned to tame the unnimagined powers that lay withing him. And he took his place in an ancient struggle against an evil Enemy older than time itself.

Remember Pug, the apprentice to Kulgan, who has been taken prisoner by the Tsurani. Is now the property of the Shinzawai. There he is visited by a Great One - a Magician on the Tsurani Homeworld of Kelewan - where Pug is discovered to have magical talents. He is taken and trained to be a Great One, and is given the name Milamber. As a Great One he finds he is the talk of the Empire for his ways. And that he is one who gathers power from both this World and Midkemia. And at the Imperial Fetival, during the Entertainment humiliates the Warlord. He is banished as a trader, and is to be killed. He escapes back to Midkemia. With his wife Katala, and son William. And with the aid of Macros the Black closes the Rift.
The book was completely gripping from cover to cover. Feist used imagination beyond belief, to bring a Fantasy Novel, worth reading over and over. A must for the avid fantasy buff, all that you could ever want is in this book!
The book had fast action on the epic level, and it makes you unable to put the book down. There is no doubt that Raymond E. Feist, has come close to outdoing himself!
It is here that we learn of the intricate fascinating world of Kelewan (the Tsurani home world) where giant, intelligent insectoid creatures called Cho-Ja reside, as well as six legged bovine creatures called Needra.
Bees are not yellow and black striped but bright red, eagles have yellow bands on their wings, and hawks are purple.
Unlike Pug's homeward Midkemia, where the flora and fauna are more like our own.
The culture of Tsuranuanni is very much Japanese/Korean and we explore the intriguing politics of the five great families of the Empire, the Keda, Tonmargu, Minwanabi, Oaxatucan, and Xacatecas, the Warlord and the near godlike Emperor, the Light of Heaven. Tied up in this are the 'political parties' representing the aspirations of the noble families, such as the Blue Wheel Party, the Jade Eye Party, the Golden Flower Party, the Party for Progress, the Party for War and others.
Then there is the Assembly of Magicians or Great Ones.
Milamber is to play a large part in creating great changes that will see a climax to the war between Tsurani and the Kingdom. He has become of the Empire, married to a girl, from Kelewan, Katala.
Meanwhile on Midkemia, Thomas has donned the armor, given to him in the cave of the dragon, of the great Dragon Lord, or Valheru, Ashen Shugar.
He becomes a mighty warrior, a thing of great power, but causes disconcertion among the Elves of Elvandar, where he lives, who fear the return to domination by the Valheru. This is complicated by the fact that the elf Queen Aglaranna has fallen in love with him.Read more ›
It made sense to me that Pug should go for Katala intstead of Carline.Carline wasn't amazingly nice to him.
The magic was at its best in this book.Pug used all different elements ,and his training was fascinating and different.Overall ,I loved it.
Pug has been a slave for several years in Kelewan.As soon as a Tsurani wizard finds that he has magic,Pug loses his memory ,and earns a new name:Milamber.He is trained for wizardry by the wizard that tooks his memory ,and told that his memory will return in his training.But also ,he must learn that he is not Tsurani(he has forgatten his heritage)and that the Tsurani's doings are wrong.
Meanwhile,Tomas ,the dwarves,and the elves,are desperatelly fighting against the Tsurani.Tomas soon realizes that the Sword of Ashen-Shugar that he bears is taking over him.He desperately struggles with the sword,as well as the Tsurani.
Feist fans must read this(after Magician:Apprentice.
