Publisher's Summary

Set 20 years after the events of the Riftwar, Prince of the Blood follows the adventures of Prince Arutha's sons in the dangerously unstable Great Empire of Kesh. Twenty years have passed since the end of the Riftwar. Prince Borric con Doin and his twin brother Erland have been summoned back to their father's court in Krondor. Prince Arutha has decided he needs to tame his spirited progeny and teach them statecraft and responsibility.

Shortly after they arrive home, therefore, he orders them to Kesh, to represent the Isles at the Empress' 75th jubilee. But before the new ambassadors depart, they are attacked. The foiled assassin's suicide reawakens fears that the Nighthawks - a brotherhood of killers for hire - are active once more. But the truth is far more disturbing: The assassin was a member of the Royal House of Kesh….

Despite the dangers, Borric and Erland's mission continues, it being vital to sustaining the fragile peace between the two nations. But the brothers have little idea of the exotic world of Kesh, the strange players at this alien court, nor the hidden forces intent upon tearing the empire apart.

    "Let down but still an ok read."

    I have loved and lived every sorry so far that's been penned by the great Mr Feist!
    However this is the very 1st one to let me down a little :(
    It just seemed like the characters are too forced into trying to be previous heroe roles.
    Previous stories, including the Empire trilogy, are illustrious adventures.
    This I'm afraid was a stroll to the pub and back.
    Never mind, still a true believer and will persevere with the rest!

    Story
    "Yet another well written piece of fiction."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Prince of the Blood to be better than the print version?

    Depending on what your reading ability is like, the audiobook version allows you to differentiate he voices and enjoy the ability to multi task. This edition is better than the first Feist novel (Magician) as the narrator has begun to understand he importance of inflection and tonality when reading aloud.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The underlining plots keep the reader riveted and the interesting similarities between the real world and Feist's Midkemia are helpful when understanding the subtle nuances of the novel itself.


    What about Peter Joyce’s performance did you like?

    Joyce has yet to master the art of reading aloud. The unusual choice of pronunciation is easy to get over once into the full swing of the tale. At times his voices are very similar, but are distinguishable in the end.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and no. 16+ hours of listening is quite an undertaking.


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoy yet another novel in Feist's collection. I just hope all of his novels will be on audiobook as the current selection cuts off the middle part of the series, making if difficult to understand the later books.
