Summary

The penultimate volume in the Conclave of Shadows series from worldwide best-selling author Raymond E. Feist. Featuring one of the most fascinating characters and scenarios ever created in the genre, the series promises to become one of the great all-time classics in the field.

Once absolute ruler of his nation, Kaspar, former duke of Olasko, has been cast into exile. Abandoned in the wilds of a continent on the other side of the world and left with nothing but his wits and determination, he must fight merely to survive. Armed with guile, cunning, and an iron will, he starts his odyssey with a single goal: to return to his home and avenge himself upon the man who cast him down, Talwin Hawkins.

But fate has other plans for Kaspar, and as he struggles against adversity he encounters dangers greater than any he had imagined. More is at stake than he realized, and Kaspar is but a single player in a far greater game than he imagined, for pitted against the Conclave of Shadows are the agents of the Dark Empire, a looming menace that threatens not only Kaspar's homeland but the entire world of Midkemia.

A Good End To An Alright Series

I had read some reviews saying the Conclave series was a real step down in terms of quality however I thought this book ended the series well and I found myself to be gripped enough to want to listen to the next chapter immediately. I liked the fact that the story was from an alternative character’s perspective as it provided a fresh approach to telling the story of this universe.
