Publisher's Write-Up

Chaos threatens to overwhelm two worlds as the most dangerous force ever encountered threatens to invade Midkemia, while the most treacherous magician in history - the madman Leso Varen - begins to wreak havoc on the world of Kelewan.

Pug and the Conclave of Shadows are determined to find Varen, only to discover that he has usurped the body of one of the most powerful men in the Empire of Tsuranuani - a Black Robe and member of the Assembly of Magicians. Pug has the almost impossible task of uncovering the true identity of the fiendish magician in an entire city full of Black Robes.

Murder, mayhem, horror, and the darkest evil await Pug's son, Magnus, and his companions as they attempt to discover the ultimate source of the terrible threat that hovers over Midkemia and Kelewan. Leading a desperate expedition into the realm of the Dasati, the vast and malevolent empire which is threatening his homeworld, Magnus hopes to find the key to defeating this enemy who is capable of overwhelming the combined might of two worlds. But even if he does, the companions will have a desperate struggle to return home with their vital information.

Three worlds will teeter on the brink of destruction as the third Riftwar: the Darkwar, is unleashed.

Rating 7/10
Raymond E. Feist was born in Southern California and educated at the University there where he graduated in Communication Arts. He is the author of the best-selling Riftwar saga.

Into A Dark Realm is book two of the Darkwar sequence.

Two worlds are under threat as the most dangerous force ever attacks the kingdom of Midkemia. Kelewan also is suffering from the antics of the mad Lesso Varen who has taken over the body of one of their most powerful men.

Pug searches for his son Magmus as he leads an expedition into this wicked Empire. Even if he succeeds, he has then to survive the dangerous journey home.

I’m not sure how I felt about this book when I first began it. It simply felt like all the rest of the action sagas out there. The beginning didn’t grip me and no real action happened at all very much. However, the story was good, with characters that were believable up until a certain extent. It all depends what is your taste. I know there are readers out there who love Feist’s work, but for me it really didn’t keep me hooked. However, as I say each to their own tastes, get this book and it might just surprise you.
