9780006483342: Krondor: The Betrayal (The Riftwar Legacy, Book 1)

A new episode in Feist’s massively successful Riftwar saga.

From the endlessly inventive mind of one of fantasy’s all-time greats, comes a spellbinding new adventure featuring old favourites Jimmy, Locklear and Pug.

It is nine years on from the aftermath of Sethanon. There has been peace awhile and it’s been needed. But news is feeding through to the people of the Kingdom of the Isles that deadly forces are stirring on the horizon. The bringer of the latest tidings is Gorath, a moredhel (dark elf).

The bloodletting has started. Nighthawks are murdering again. Politics is a dangerous, cut-throat game once more. At the root of all this unrest lie the mysterious machinations of a group of magicians known as The Six.

Meanwhile, renegade Tsurani gem smugglers, a rival criminal gang to the Mockers led by someone known only as The Crawler, and traitors to the crown are all conspiring to bring the Kingdom of the Isles to its knees.

Review:

The video game industry has always drawn upon works of fiction for inspiration--sooner or later, the process had to reverse itself. Krondor: the Betrayal began its life as the bestselling role-playing video game of all time, written by Raymond E. Feist for Dynamix Inc. Feist, whose Serpentwar Saga has sold millions of copies and established him as one of the most popular fantasy authors of modern times, also wrote this novelisation which places the action of the game in the context of his fully realised fantasy setting, Midkemia. Feist's fans are legion. Long-time readers will be delighted at the return of popular characters Pug the Wizard, Squire Locklear and others, as they face the menace of a marauding elf war-chieftain and a mysterious cabal of wizards. But first-time Feist readers may find Krondor the Betrayal baffling and tiresome--without the momentum of the larger series, much of the story's effect is diminished. The video game influence in this book is unmistakable, as evidenced by an encumbrance of sword fights, multilevel conspiracy and two-dimensional characters. --Brendan J. LaSall, Amazon.com
