Publisher's Summary

Discover the fate of the original black Magician, Pug, and his crew of agents who safeguard the world of Trigia, as prophecy becomes truth in the last book of the last-ever Midkemian trilogy, the final volume in the epic Riftwar Cycle.

The dragons are calling.… Civil war is tearing apart the Kingdom of the Isles, for the throne lies empty and rivals are converging. Having spirited his beloved Princess Stephané safely out of Roldem, Hal - now Duke of Crydee - must turn his attention to the defence of the ancient realm so that a king can be anointed by the Congress of Lords, rather than by right of might. But the greatest threat may well lie out of the hands of men.

Somewhere in the Grey Towers Mountains something not of this world is emerging. It will require that alliances be made between mortal enemies if disaster is to be averted. Elves and men must stand together, ancient heroes must rise again, dragons must fly and Pug, Magnus and the other magic-users of Midkemia must be prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice if the whole world is to be saved.

Bad

This was a poor ending to a great 'series' Feist keeps writing the same book over and over juts changing the characters names.
His explantion of 'stuff' and extra dimensions et. al. and the uber enemy in this book is purile, tedious rubbish.I groaned every time he went on to have his characters try to explain physic 101 in terms of 'stuff' silly silly silly....

A real shame as i would place the 1st there books in the magaican series in my top 10 favourite books

Great end for the greatest story

If you could sum up Magician’s End in three words, what would they be?

fascinating great story

What was one of the most memorable moments of Magician’s End?

The way the story ends with all the gods and the decisions, did not only justify the name for the book as a proper ending.

What about Peter Joyce’s performance did you like?

Peter Joyce's voice acting has been with several of this storyline books and i think he adds something special to the characters emotions and brings to life all of the story.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

When gods bow to a little man

Any additional comments?

If anyone reading this didn't read all books since the start, please do. You will be in for great moments and in my opinion the greatest epic fantasy story so far that could captivate me book after book after book.

Fitting end to a great story

Not to be missed ending to an epic multi life spanning story line. Narrated perfectly by Peter Joyce. I just hope the other books in the series get the same attention and narrator as I'm missing a great part of the series when the publishers decided to use another narrator.
I really hope to see more of the new Midkemia in the future.

I will be lost.

Well the saga is over. I will miss all the characters as Peter Joyce narrated this so well. I have listened to all the books I can and this was a fitting end to it all. Peter doesn't get all the words right but does fill your ears with the characters and surroundings of the story

A fitting end to the saga!

What did you like most about Magician's End?

I think Feist managed to wrap up the saga well. He's been introducing the philosophies of magic and life in his universe over the series of books and this provided a fairly fitting end, indeed perhaps the only fitting end.

Any additional comments?

There are countless elements left to be tied up. I often felt that the grand, universal scope of some of the elements rendered some of the poltical squabbling a little meaningless. But Feist kept the story moving and never got too bogged down in any particular details, I felt. <br/><br/>A nice conclusion to a long journey.

Awesome

I have really loved this series, like many others I bought Magician and was hooked from the outset, fitting end to one of the best Fantasy series ever. Gripping conclusion to the long journey and highs and lows of Pug and his companions. Think I will have to go start at the beginning again.

Fantastic End

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

this book is another classic written by Feist, the characters are very well established but you still feel like you have learnt something from the book and people, its a great end to a fantastic series and well worth reading.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Pug of course, he is a fantastic and diverse character .

Have you listened to any of Peter Joyce’s other performances? How does this one compare?

He is a great reader, very good and differentiating each character.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

the final chapter.

At least it finished ...

I shouldn't have read this last trilogy. The magnificent 'Magician' - which I read over 20 years ago - is a book I remember extremely fondly, but now, as a 37 year old, I found these books tiring and hard work. The writing is clunky as hell, the characters static and clichéd, and the plot forced and predictable; I'm glad it's over. The moral of the story? Leave your childhood stories in the past. (Narrated very well though.)

Dissapointed Fan

I have always loved Raymond E. Feist. In this book he repeats much of what occured in the previous books. Having read all the previous books I found this extremely tedious. His new ideas are always exciting, but I felt the book required some severe editing.

The greatest 4 months of my life

Over the last 4 months i have listened to Peter Joyce reveal the worlds and lifetimes created by Raymond E. Feist in the series called magician.

I have been moved my mind is always thinking of the lifes that were portrayed in the series i miss characters i wish i could hear them again. I wish i could hear Jimmy the hand fall in love or feel the power Eric vondarkmor had, cry when willam and gamina gave there lives for what they loved. This series is long but its more then just a series of books, it is centuries of life every detail every void, every desert path, every castle, every being.

i will recommend this journey to everyone

Thank you Raymond E. feist and Peter joyce you have given me something to love more then i ever thought.

Worth it. Peter Joyce is back.

So good to have Peter Joyce back for the final instalment. Only gripe is I wish he had done some home work and listened to some of his previous voices for the characters. His character voice for Nakor was a bit disappointing.
All in all just about everything else was spot on.

Absolutely baffled at this end. Loved the narrator, the story, the characters!
Only thing missing was Nakors usual accent, which I had grown very fond of over the years.

Closure

A fitting end to a series of books that have spanned over a decade of reading for me. R.E.F is probably my favourite author and this last trilogy has all the hallmarks that make Feist great. It's hard to say goodbye but it left me with a smile on my face, the way it ended was very clever. Peter Joyce is great and I'm glad it was narrated by him, he has an excellent grasp of emotive vocal expression and is a master of the pause for effect.

WARNING: You might cry.... I did

What did you like most about Magician’s End?

Epic, Pug and company deserved a fitting end, they got it here. I have loved and hated with these Characters from the very beginning, with people like Martin Longbow, Jimmy the Hand, Arutha, Eric, Roo, Macros, Nakor, Miranda, Thomas and of course, Pug, this series has taken me on adventures I never imagined, to finally let them rest and close out their stories in such a wonderful way while still giving that glint of hope we all needed it could only be done by a true master of his craft. Feist created a world to rival and equal that of Robert Jordans Wheel of time and that is saying something.<br/>If you have not read the entire list of series that bring Midkemia to life, then do not spoil it by starting at the Magicians End, you MUST understand Midkemia and it's role to truely appreciate this masterful work.<br/>To finally let Pug go brought a tear to my eye, to those of us who have loved this story from the beginning and those who are just finding it, we all should say Thank You Raymond E Feist, for bringing these wonderful people into our lives and allowing us to share this world with you.

What other book might you compare Magician’s End to, and why?

I am not sure it can be compared to another book, it is the end of a legacy and as such, should remain a masterpiece in it's own right.

What does Peter Joyce bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

When I first heard Peter Joyce I was skeptical, But his voice gives real depth to the characters, he draws you into the story and makes you feel every thrust of the sword.

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

I did listen to it all at once, sleep be damned.

Any additional comments?

I will listen to and read the entire Midkemian saga from start to finish many many more times, I find myself missing them.

Bitter sweet.

A satisfying end to an amazing series. I just hope they go back to the beginning (Magician) and do the entire series in audio format with Peter Joyce doing the narration.
