Summary

The adventure concludes with the triumphant finale in the Riftwar Saga. Raymond E. Feist is an internationally best-selling author.

The battle may be over, but war is coming… The Kingdom forces may have won the first conflict but the enemy has a strong grip on Midkemia and invasion now seems inevitable.

Arutha travels north to confront the Dark Elves, but without help, Pug knows that Arutha's forces face slaughter. With Tomas he must scour the world - and beyond - to find the one person with enough power to give them a chance. If they fail, Midkemia will be the first of many worlds to fall to a madman with the power to dominate death itself…

A Darkness at Sethanon concludes Raymond E. Feist's bestselling Riftwar Saga.

Pronunciation.

If Peter Joyce learned how to pronounce the names properly the story would sound a lot better.

Beautifully descriptive

An amazing escape into a wonderful world. The narrator compliments the author brilliantly, allowing you to be transported into a fantastically designed fantasy. The series has gripped me from the beginning, and these audio novels add so much more. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys fantasy, and a great series for anyone who wants to give fantasy a go.

Excellent ending to an even great series

Half way into book 4 I wasn't sure how this was going to end, but Feist has an amazing way of rounding things up. Masterful story telling and equally well read by Peter Joyce

Solid story in written form as well as audio form

The strong performance by Peter Joyce drives this fantastic crossover. I read this series in written form many years ago and I find that they are holding their own in audio format. This is a solid addition to the series

He writes about love in the same Way a potato would write about the irish

So i like this book. But i admit that i almost returend it. And Only did not because how much i liked the ending. Now i feel that he could write romance better, Cause the Way he does it now is Kinda short, to the point, and mostly bitter. So just like how a potato would write about the irish.
