Genre: Fantasy, Adventure, Age: Adult

Starting an epic fantasy series is pretty tough. You will have to get accustomed to another author’s writing, expand your knowledge on another fictional universe, and learn to love characters that you will follow for thousands of pages.

This book has been on my wishlist for a long time, and after a lot of ‘umming’ and ‘awwing’, one way or another, it’s now in my hands.

I was lucky enough to be sent this from the Waterstones team for review purposes. Not only is this the new re-release edition, with the lovely black cover, but it’s also the revised edition that contains more words that were in the initial book.

Whether this is truly worth the good reviews and high recommendations that I come across, only time will tell. I will be, of course, giving my true and honest opinion about Raymon E. Feist’s creation.

Read the blurb below!




In the westernmost province of the Kingdom of the Isles, upon the world of Midkemia, an orphan kitchen boy named Pug was made apprentice to the magician Kulgan. Here starts an adventure that will span lifetimes and worlds. Discover where the story begins.

The world had changed even before I discovered the foreign ship wrecked on the shore below Crydee Castle, but it was the harbinger of the chaos and death that was coming to our door.

War had come to the Kingdom of the Isles, and in the years that followed it would scatter my friends across the world. I longed to train as a warrior and fight alongside our duke like my foster-brother, but when the time came, I was not offered that choice.

My fate would be shaped by other forces. My name is Pug. I was once an orphaned kitchen boy, with no family and no prospects, but I am destined to become a master magician…
