5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly strategic
"Rise of a Merchant Prince" is exactly what the title portrays it to be: the rise of Roo from a common person (who narrowly escaped a death sentence in the previous book and was merely friend to Erik whilst off soldiering in Novindus) to the one of the richest people in Krondor.
Roo's tale is captivating and a refreshing change in the world of Midkemia...

3.0 out of 5 stars Mediocore
This book is a far cry from the empire series. While the main plot (the story of Roo) deserves respect (its nice to see someone write about the importance of economics in a fantasy novel), the various su-plots are just thrown haphazardly into the novel. The characters are almost all uni-dimensional and cardboard (with the exception of Roo). This is especially...

4.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent adventure told by the Master, Jan. 12 1998

Ce commentaire est de: Rise Of A Merchant Prince (Mass Market Paperback)
Feist surperbly creates intrigue, lust, and suspense in this novel. The story is full with adventure as the reader endures victory and sadness with the characters. Another enthralling Feist novel which will hook readers and leave them anxious to read his NEXT novel.

2.0 out of 5 stars This is not Science Fiction Fantasy., May 12 1998
By A Customer
Ce commentaire est de: Rise Of A Merchant Prince (Mass Market Paperback)
This is basicly a cheap romance novel with a very minimal amount of fantasy, except for Roo's business acumen. Roo has few redeeming features. By far Feist's worse try. I am not sure I even wish to look at "Rage of a Demon King" now.

1.0 out of 5 stars Feist needs some new ideas, Nov. 7 1999
By A Customer
Ce commentaire est de: Rise Of A Merchant Prince (Mass Market Paperback)
Worst thing Feist has written yet. They'd been getting steadily worse for a while but at least they remained entertaining. This book was a struggle to get through. Erik and Roo are his dullest characters yet. Mindless.

1.0 out of 5 stars A disappointing work., Aug. 1 1998
By A Customer
Ce commentaire est de: Rise Of A Merchant Prince (Mass Market Paperback)
This novel was even worse than Shadows of a Dark Queen; it is an awful work of sloppy writing by a novelist whose success has gone to his head. Grossly inferior to the Riftwar Saga.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, but not the best, July 31 1998
By A Customer
Ce commentaire est de: Rise Of A Merchant Prince (Mass Market Paperback)
It was a good book, but not nearly as fast paced as his others. There isn't much fantasy involved, more of it is set in a city. A good book, as all of his are, but not his best.

Ce commentaire est de: Rise Of A Merchant Prince (Mass Market Paperback)
This is one of Fiest's best books. The thrill of Roo becoming a Merchant Prince, becoming rich, getting married and having children. A must read for all book lovers.

This book shows how brilliant Feist can write by changing the scene totally from one of fast paced adventure, to one of slow moving mind power!!
