A fantastic new novella from the master of magic and adventure. Best-selling author Raymond E. Feist returns to the city of Krondor and one of his most loved characters, Jimmy the Hand.
The Crawler: a name whispered in fear...
In the crime-ridden back alleys of Krondor, a rival gang has sprung up to threaten the Upright Man's Mockers. Does the Crawler control the rival gang? Where does his power come from? And does it threaten the peace of the Kingdom?
James, personal squire to Prince Arutha of Krondor, but in the underworld known as the thief and trickster Jimmy the Hand, must travel to Kesh in disguise. There, working with William, lieutenant of the prince's household guard and son of the magician Pug, and Jazhara, niece to the Keshian lord Hazara-Khan, he must attempt to unmask the mysterious Crawler and rid Krondor of his influence.
I'm a fiest fan he got me into this book,good
listen a bit rushed at the end but overall fine fits into the underlying story line through out all his books fills in a few holes
Having finished Magician's End I decided to have a go at one of the stand alone books.
It's a great shame that Peter Joyce has not done the narration, but this reader does OK.
The story is strong and this short book is surely improved by having a limited cast of players. The end is sad, made more so if you have read the other books and aware of William's fate.
This story also fills in some unanswered questions from previous books, but it works as a stand alone story too.
This book is not long though well read. It also closes off a few hinted events from earlier books.
However the ending was too simple and the book was far too short (that may be because I love Fiest and always want more) there were also none of the plot twists we expect from the author.
Not enough content to warrant full price. Also not narrated by Peter Joyce unlike the rest of the series.
It's an ok book. different reader which is annoying when you ate going through the series but you deal with it
And that's about it. Where's the rest of it?
That was a dismal ending to The Crawler story arc.
The only good point was the narrator, it was a nice change to hear else other than Peter Joyce read a Midkemia book. Not that there's anything wrong with Peter Joyce.
