Publisher's Summary

Discover the fate of the original black Magician, Pug, and his motley crew of agents who safeguard the world of Trigia, as prophecy becomes truth in the first book of the last ever Midkemian trilogy.

The Darkness is coming…The Kingdom is plagued by rumour and instability. Kingdom spies in Kesh have been disappearing - either murdered, or turned to the enemy side. Information has become scant and unreliable; but one thing appears clear. Dark forces are on the move…Since Pug and the Conclave of Shadows enforced peace after the last Keshian invasion, the Empire has offered no threat. But now factions are rising and Jim Dasher reports mobilizations of large forces in the Keshian Confederacy.

As the men of the West answer the King's call to muster, Martin con Doin - left as caretaker of Crydee Keep - will suddenly be confronted with the vanguard of an invading army. He reminds himself that he is a year older than his legendary ancestor, Prince Arutha, was when he stood firm against the Tsurani invasion, but Arutha had an army to command, and Martin is left with old men and young boys.

Massive events are about to unfold, events which threaten the future of all human life in Midkemia….

    Story
    "Old school fantasy."

    Having drifted away from Feist many years ago - as his Midkemia novels became poorer and poorer, and all he seemed to be doing was milking the magnificent "Magician" - I was intrigued to see that he was finally wrapping the series up. And so I jumped back into his world, and it's a lot of fun so far. The writing's still as clunky and cliched as always but it works as a great slice of escapism, and it's great to be back in Crydee after all these years. I've read hardly any of the intervening 20-odd books but it's easy enough to get to grips with the characters and context, and I'm looking forward to the rest of the trilogy. (Excellently narrated too.)

    "A Kingdom Besieged"

    having been a fan of Raymond E Feist since his first book, I was little apprehensive about having someone read his story to me, would the voices match my interpretation of them, would the excitement come across in the same way I read it, would it work....this is my first audio book....I need not have worried, a magnificent interpretation of the story, although I hadn't envisaged some of the accents but once locked in, they worked...beautifully read and a great, great story that stands alone whether you are familiar with his earlier books in the story...totally hooked and driving and air flights will never be the same...
