Summary

Third in the massively successful Krondor series inspired by Feist's global best-selling computer game Return to Krondor. A drop in the ocean?

A raid upon the high seas signals an attack of unprecedented magnitude by the forces of darkness. For the holiest of holies, the Tear of the Gods has been lost to the Temple of Ishap. After a raid planned by Bear, one of the most brutal pirates to sail the Bitter Sea, goes dramatically wrong, the colossal gems sink below the waves.

So begins a story of the Tear of the Gods, the most powerful artifact known to the Temples of Midkemia. For it allows the temples to speak with their gods. Without it they are lost for a decade, until another gem is formed in the distant mountains.

Squire James, William, and Jazhara, new court magician, must seek out the location of this gem with Brother Solon, a warrior priest of Ishap, and Kendaric, the sole member of the Wreckers' Guild, with the power to raise the ship. They are opposed by the minions of Sidi, servant of the Dark God, who seeks to possess the Tear for his own ends or to destroy it, denying it to the forces of light.

This third tale in The Riftwar Legacy is a breathless race for a priceless treasure. It's a race against time, against the myriad sinister and competing evil forces desperate for the all-powerful prize, and ultimately against the fundamentals of nature, which in Midkemia can be as formidable as the gods themselves.

another gripping story..

another gripping story. The only downside I found was the editing of the first few chapters. It didn't flow very well, with gaps between the different bits of niration .But this didn't stop the enjoyment of this book. .

Great Series, Great Story, Great Delivery

I'm a big Raymond E. Feist fan, did enjoy reading all his books when I was younger, so when I saw the narrated version, I jumped at the chance. I've heard several narrators for different types of book and love the way Peter Joyce delivers the dialogue, painting a tapestry of events and personalities that flow with the environment. Well worth a listen
