Publisher's Write-Up

Set twenty years after the events in The Riftwar Saga, Prince of the Blood follows the adventures that erupt when a group of powerful nobles attempt to overthrow the Empress of Kesh, bitterly dividing the court. In the centre of the conflict are the two princes of Krondor, Borric and Erland.

When Borric escapes and makes a desperate journey back to the court to warn of the traitor's plans - which if they were to succeed, would start a war that would tear the Empire apart.

From the author of the phenomally successful novels in The Riftwar series comes the newly revised tale of swashbuckling adventure in one of the most popular fantasy worlds ever created. Prince of the Blood is the classic, action-packed saga of conflict and love, magic and legend, from the master of epic fantasy.

This takes place twenty years after the Riftwar saga, the Kingdom is peaceful. Arutha and Anita are married and have had children. Their twin boys, Boric and Erlund, are of an age to participate in court duties, although they would appear to prefer gambling and frequenting low class drinking establishments. Upon arriving back from the court of Baron Highcastle, they are found by Duke James and baron Locklear and delivered back to their father who is less than pleased with them.

Trouble has been brewing with Great Kesh, and the boys are despatched to the court pf the Empress with a delegation to stop a war from starting. The travelling group are separated with Borric feared dead, leaving his younger brother the heir apparent. They arrive in Great Kesh to find a conspiracy which places them all in danger, caught trying to figure out who is responsible for playing the factions off against one another.

You know that I have a very soft spot for the writings of Raymond E Feist, and this is no exception. Set within the familiar Kingdom but with the added charm of a different culture, Feist tells a great story. I know that some Science Fantasy series are very samey, but I still enjoy all of these and look forward to new excerpts.
