Book Description

April 1997 The Serpentwar Saga (Book 3)

A loyal soldier and a wealthy merchant have served bravely in the flames of an enduring war that is ravaging their land. But swords, bows, wits and courage will no longer be enough to defeat the scourge that is descending upon their home. For a foul and terrible thing has escaped from a world already devoured to feed on one consumed by chaos -- an insatiable nightmare creature of dark and murderous nature which seeks to own and corrupt the very source of life itself

The final conflict is joined, pitting serpent against man and magician against demon. For those who battle in the cause of good, there will be victory...or there will be doom for all.

There can be no other outcome.

Product Description

From Kirkus Reviews

Feist's fantasy saga continues (Shadow of a Dark Queen, 1994; Rise of the Merchant Prince, 1995) as the folk of Midkemia, already battling the snaky Saaur and their Emerald Queen, face an invasion of hungry demons seeking new wellsprings of toothsome lifeforce for their insatiable leader, Great Maarg. Returning to the fray are the familiar magicians Pug, Miranda, and Macros, along with soldiers Erik von Darkmoor and his sidekick, Roo Avery--and they will still need help from their former enemies, the Black Robes of Kelewan. There's probably a kitchen sink in here somewhere, too. Somehow, Feist always manages to wring out another plot twist or scrape together a new and improved gaggle of bad guys to keep the stew bubbling; the real puzzle is how the fans tolerate his graceless, often downright inept prose and limping dialogue.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best series ever!! Feb. 10 2006
By Rylin
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I for one believe the Serpent War series, all 4 books, is perhaps one of the MOST! entertaining series of books I have yet read. In fact, I have reread them more than almost any other in my extensive collection. I like the way his characters evolve and don't stay as they were in the beginning. That's the way life is. I loved Roo in the Rise of a Merchant King and the battles in Rage of a Demon King, when they finally reach the shore "Bigger just makes em easier to hit". So many memorable quotes and exciting strategies. Couldn't put it down.
Another series which I truely enjoyed, is The Morcyth Saga by newcomer Brian S. Pratt. Exciting, thrilling, and logically done. Excellent story telling. If you haven't tried it, read The Unsuspecting Mage and you'll see what I mean.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVED IT!! April 1 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is about 1 million times better than "Rise of a Merchent Prince" a book that I little actually dislike but will not re-read agian either.
In this book preety much everything pays off from the first two books we have a lot of conflict on all fronts and while some of it doesn't get wrapped up smothly it all comes to more than a satisfactory conclusion. At a point this book is just one drawn out slugging match with the forces of the Emerald Queen.
Everyone who has possibly even remotly been in a Feist serise of books has a part to play and for the most part this works out really well.
My favorite sequence in the whole book is the conversation between Duke James and the leader of the Thives Guild. This is a book that I will gladly rwead agian.
Overall-Took a while to get going but in the end it packs quite a punch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Danger Adventure and Much More! July 22 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Just when you think things are going to be ok. Feist launches into another war which leads to the destruction of most of the kingdom. From the Lizard Men to the Serpent Priests Feist doesn't disappoint. Once you pick up this book you can't put it down. Another Feist 5 +++ star book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the midkemian series Sept. 28 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read all the Feist books dealing with the Midkemian world. The "Pro" review from Krokus states they don't know why Raymonds fans keep buying these books...Guess they just don't get it. Rage is the BEST of all the books he's wrote so far. And boy he killed off some main characters in this series. For those who read this book I'll just leave you with these words from the book "As Jimmy The Hand comes back home".

3.0 out of 5 stars Better Oct. 13 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Rise of A Merchant Prince" disappointed me for its slow progress and pause of the overall story to focus on Rupert Avery's development as a business men. It wasn't the sole story in the novel, but it was the main focus. "Rage" is back on track with the overall conflict between Midkemia and the Emerald Emperess's Army advance. So much happens in fact, it made me wonder why another novel in the series is necessary. There are some ends left untied, but overall overthree quarters of the plot gets settled. I'm glad to see the return of characters from previous novels and Feist isn't afraid to show the seriousness of the conflict in not all make it through this novel, which only makes sense. Boredom would set in if all the good characters made it through every conflict with only minor scratches.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good climax to an entire setting. April 14 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book isn't just the climax to the Serpent War set of books, it is a sort of climax to the whole set of Midkemia novels. Feist obviously subscribes to the belief that retiring old characters should be done well and heroicly. The followup book is simply to tie up all the threads of the action of this well-done book.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Best book in the serpentwar saga Nov. 1 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Feist captures your attention as he leads you through the epic story of Eric, Roo, and many other intreging characters. He knows his territory well, and uses great detail to express his point. The novel was excellent, and gives a good picture of the war as it happened. The only let down was that when you finish the book, you think "That's it? That war was solved so quickly!" Luckily, there are many, many other Fiest book with interesting and exotic wars for fantasy fans to read.
