9780002247221: Jimmy the Hand (Legends of the Riftwar)

From the endlessly inventive mind of one of fantasy's all time greats, comes a spellbinding new adventure of high magic, treachery and bloody war. This time in conjunction with master of alternative US history, Steve Stirling, Feist returns to tell the full tale of one of his fans' favourite most colourful Riftwar characters, pickpocket, montebank and confidence trickster Jimmy the Hand. Jimmy the Hand, boy thief of Krondor, lived in the shadows of the city. The sewers were his byways and a flea-ridden, rat infested cellar his home. Gifted beyond his peers, he was still but a nimble street urchin, a pickpocket with potential. Until the day he met Prince Arutha. Aiding the Prince in his rescue of Princess Anita from imprisonment by Duke Guy du Bas-Tyra, Jimmy ran afoul of Black Guy's secret police. Fearing reprisal and seeking an opportunity to advance his place in life, Jimmy fled the city and ventured north to the relatively safe haven of Sarth. Suspecting the rural villagers had never encountered a lad with his talent and nose for finding wealth ? other people's wealth, Jimmy was unprepared for what greeted him. For Sarth was home to others who trod the dodgy path, and more, to a darker secret, a dangerous presence unknown to even the local thieves and smugglers. Jimmy's youthful bravado and courage plunge him deep into the maw of chaos and death. An enjoyable fantasy novel for those that have read the 'Legends of the Rift War' series. This hardback book has 369 pages and measures: 24 x 16 x 3.5cm.

Jimmy the Hand, boy thief of Krondor, lived in the shadows of the city. The sewers were his byways and a flea-ridden, rat infested cellar his home. Gifted beyond his peers, he was still but a nimble street urchin, a pickpocket with potential. Until the day he met Prince Arutha.

Fearing reprisal and seeking an opportunity to advance his place in life, Jimmy fled the city and ventured north to the relatively safe haven of Sarth. Suspecting the rural villagers had never encountered a lad with his talent and nose for finding wealth – other people's wealth, Jimmy was unprepared for what greeted him.

For Sarth was home to others who trod the dodgy path, and more, to a darker secret, a dangerous presence unknown to even the local thieves and smugglers. Jimmy's youthful bravado and courage plunge him deep into the maw of chaos and death.

Review:

Honoured Enemy, the first in this collaborative series, has sold 50,000 copies in hardback. In conjunction with the chronicler of alternative US history, Steve Stirling, Raymond Feist returns to tell the full tale of one of his fans' favourite Riftwar characters, pickpocket and confidence trickster Jimmy the Hand. Jimmy, boy thief of Krondor, lives in the shadows of the city. Gifted beyond his peers, he is a pickpocket with potential. Aiding the Prince Arutha in his rescue of Princess Anita, Jimmy runs afoul of Black Guy's secret police. He flees to Sarth, home to others who tread a dangerous path, and more, to a dangerous presence unknown even to the local thieves and smugglers. The final volume in the Tales of the Riftwar sequence maintains the energetic invention of its predecessors.
