Rides a Dread Legion: Demonwar Saga, Book 1

A lost race of elves, the taredhel or 'people of the stars', have found a way across the universe to reach Midkemia. On their current home world, these elves are hard pressed by a ravaging demon horde, and what was once a huge empire has been reduced to a handful of survivors. The cornerstone of taredhel lore is the tale of their lost origins in the world they call simply 'Home', a place lost in the mists of time. Now they are convinced that Midkemia is that place, and they are coming to reclaim it.

Publisher's Summary

A lost race of elves, the taredhel or 'people of the stars', have found a way across the universe to reach Midkemia. On their current home world, these elves are hard pressed by a ravaging demon horde, and what was once a huge empire has been reduced to a handful of survivors. The cornerstone of taredhel lore is the tale of their lost origins in the world they call simply 'Home', a place lost in the mists of time. Now they are convinced that Midkemia is that place, and they are coming to reclaim it.

Ruthless and arrogant, the taredhel intend to let nothing stand in their way; but before long, Pug and the Conclave realise that it's not necessarily the elves, but the demon horde pursuing them where the true danger lies. And hanging over Pug always is the prophecy that he will be doomed to watch everyone he loves die before him...

    "Disappointing"

    This book is very disappointing. I am a long term fan of Raymond Feist's books and I have read all the books he has ever written, many of them multiple times. Unfortunately, I think he has finally run out of ideas and he is now recycling old ones unashamedly. There is nothing new in this book, and every section leaves you with a feeling of de ja vous. Far too much time is spent on scene setting, and there is far too little action. The characters are not particularly engaging and I felt myself on the verge of giving up listening multiple times. To make things worse, the narrator is quite unsuitable. His performance oozes pomposity, and I felt that the accents he uses for different characters often felt quite inappropriate. I bought this book as soon as it became available, with a great feeling of excitement - but I won't be so trusting in future.

    "Good book, average narration."

    I thoroughly enjoyed the book itself, but the narrator's voices for the characters were inconsistent and unconvincing. At some points, it became difficult to tell who the narrator was trying to vocalize, the voices were often that similar and interchangeable. Also annoying was the narrators tendency to have the characters *sigh* constantly.

    In all, I'd recommend reading this book instead of listening to it - its a good story, but unfortunately the narrator isn't quite up to scratch this time. Four stars for the book, Two for the narration.

    "FANTASTIC!!!"

    I will be honest, this was the first Raymond E. Feist book I have read (Listened to) and then went onto At the Gates of Darkness, I absolutly loved the two books, with Peter Joyce narrating them made it just as good too. I am so hungry for more, WHY is there none Raymond E Feist's other books on this site? I WANT MORE lol I highly recomend this book and book 2 'At the Gates of Darkness'

    "Rides a Dread Legion"

    A marvellous example of Raymond E Feist's fantasy story craft. The many disparate characters are seamlessly interwoven into a story that keeps you literally spellbound. Having read most of Feist's earlier works this is up there with the best. Throughout the novel there are tantalising references to previous adventures. It's a shame they aren't yet available to listen to. Can't wait to experience these past favourites if and when they become available on audible.

    "Proffesionally narrated, epic fantasy story."

    This was the first audibook of Feist I have listened too. As with the paperback versions I was spellbound. Fantastic narration for a fantastic storyline. Looking foward to more of Feist's work on Audible.
