If you don't want to lose sleep, than avoid this book. The story is quite engaging and will be hard to put down. Throughout, Feist conitues to entwine action with fantasy. Excellent.
**A book I would also recommend is The Unsuspecting Mage by Brian S. Pratt. This, the first installment of The Morcyth Saga is a great beginning for a new author. Battles, magic, gods, secret passages and intrigue, all the elements of a classic epic fantasy! Any fantasy reader will enjoy it.

The king has no heir and the twin sons of Prince Arutha learn that they are next in line for the kingship, one to rule, and one to be in the shadows of the other at all times. On the heels of this discovery comes an attempted assassination, kidnapping, slavery, and palace intrigue on grand scales. Fiest will keep you guessing till the end. A well thought out book with good descriptions, and interesting settings.

In this sequel to A Darkness at Sethanon, author Raymond Feist takes us back to his magical world of Midkemia. Arutha's sons, Borric and Erland, are growing up to be wild; given to drinking, gambling and wenching. However, Borric is destined to be King of the Isles, with Erland being a mere step away from the throne. And so, the boys are packed off to the Empire of Great Kesh, to represent the Kingdom at the Empress's Diamond Jubilee. However, there is a conspiracy at work in Kesh, and one of its goals is the death of Borric conDoin! The twins are going to have to grow up, and quick, if they are to stay alive!
This book is a decided step away from the Elves and Wizards theme that dominated Mr. Feist's early works. Instead, this book places the (non-magical) main characters in a situation where they must use their wits and abilities to succeed - a theme that dominates the rest of his Midkemia books.
Overall, I must say that I loved this book! I really enjoyed the exotic setting, with the author mixing in familiar Earth cultures in an entirely unfamiliar arrangement. Also, even though I do like wizard characters, I thought that Mr. Feist still did a good job of using magic as an integral part of the story, even if it is not the central part.
So, I would say that I liked the setting, I liked the characters (a very nice selection of different sorts, but working together in an entirely believable way), and I liked the story. As a matter of fact, I would say that if this is not my favorite Midkemia story, it is one of my top 2! I really enjoyed this book, and highly recommend it to all fans of Fantasy literature!

When this book first was about to come out I was waiting with so much excitement only to be diappointed... too orientalist for my tastes...

This is a stand alone sequel to the Rift War series, and if anything its even better! The action is more exciting, and so is the romance, but with the same great colorful and interesting characters and plot.

As said before by another reviewer, this book is a little more mystery than the usual Feist fantasy, but that didn't make it any less adventuresome or captivating. It started out a little slow, but once it picks up it's hard to put down.
Feist is a phenomenal author. He weaves intricate tales of adventure, mystery, and magic into a complex, rich geographical background. He also holds true to established history and fits in nostalgic anecdotes for old fans.
I read Prince of the Blood in two days. Couldn't put it down.
This is my second time reading Feist's Riftwar and Serpentwar sagas.
I recommend reading this series from the beginning, starting with Magician, to get the full effect of the books that follow.

This book is a great continuation of the Riftwar saga. It's definitely different in tone, lighter and faster, but entertaining nonetheless. All the characters are wonderful and likeable. The best character is Nakor who interjects a lot of humor into this book. A must read for Feist fans!

When you say the word Feist you know it's going to be great. Well this book doesn't dissapoint. Read about Arutha's kids and learn how they gain the wisdom to rule their kingdom in the future. Another 5 +++ star book. Another question of why?? is the Hero so much better?
