“An epic reading experience.”<_o3a_p>

San Diego Union-Tribune<_o3a_p>


Acclaimed, New York Times bestselling fantasist Raymond E. Feist gets his masterful Serpentwar Saga off to a spectacular start with Shadow of a Dark Queen. Feist’s classic epic fantasy adventure returns readers to ever-imperiled Midkemia, a breathtaking, richly imagined realm of magic and intrigue, where two unlikely heroes must rally the forces of the land to stand firm against a malevolent race of monsters intent upon conquest and annihilation. Locus magazine calls Shadow of a Dark Queen, “the place to start for those yet to discover Feist’s fantasy worlds.” For fans of Terry Goodkind, George R. R. Martin, and Terry Brooks—and for anyone not already in the  thrall of this astonishing author’s literary magic—that is excellent advice indeed.<_o3a_p>

Raymond E. Feist is the multipleNew York Timesbestselling author or coauthor of thirty previous books—all but one of which are Riftwar Cycle novels. He lives in San Diego.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good read and fantastic plot advances. This is a good read that brings in some of the characters from Princes of the Blood and King's Buccaneer. New shift in perspective and tactics as well as interesting new characters to know and care about.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feist Does It Once Again Bringing us almost fifty years after the infamous Riftwars, Raymond E Feist immerses us into the world of Midkemia once again with the closure of The characters that we remember and introduces us to all new ones. Letting you meet Erik and Roo, an illegitimate son of a noble and a town rogue , Feist shows you a new threat to the great Kingdom of The Isles and quite possibly all of Creation. In the far continent of Novindus, you're shown the horrors of war and the ravage of insane fanaticism. In Shadow Of A Dark Queen you'll find yourself riveted to the same inequitable storytelling that Feist gave to you in the popular Riftwar Saga and continued to show you in such books as Prince Of The Blood and The King's Buccaneer. Shadow Of A Dark is the first book in the Serpent Wars Saga By Raymond E Feist. An excellent read that will keep you turning the page until the other three books in the Serpent Wars Saga can no longer be ignored, Shadow Of A Dark Queen will entertain the fantasy lovers and non-fantasy lovers alike.

Two unlikely heroes are destined to oppose the malign forces that threaten their lives and the survival of their world. 0380720876+Roo and Eric have survived military adventure in the South and helped warn Midkemia of the seemingly unstoppable horde of the Serpent Mages that is conquering their world. But life goes on, and even heroes have to make a living, so Roo begins his life as a businessman--one who can cut a deal as quickly and easily as he can a throat. 0380720884ýA loyal soldier and a wealthy merchant have served bravely in an enduring war that is ravaging their land--but their courage is no longer 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.
