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.

    "Almost perfect"

    Another great story by Feist. Not as 'epic' as his previous novels it nonetheless has the strong, constantly evolving characters that I have come to love within Feists writings.
    The narrator again annoys me with the pronunciation of some names and words but does a very good job of differentiating characters.

    "entertaining and a nice diversion"

    very good performance from Peter Joyce who brought a thoroughly entertaining tale to life.
    moving the focus to Kesh enriches the world of Midkemia and this is where Feist is at his best.

    Worth the read or listen

    Story
    "another winner"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Prince of the Blood?

    I don't want to spoil things for others, so I'll just say 'the death of a young person in the latter stages of the story'. It was heartbreaking. The contents of Nakor's (? spelling) bag fascinates as ever. The relationships between the royal children and many others keep one gripped to the book.


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

    Peter Joyce IS the voice of The Riftwar Cycle. His narration of all the books is first class and he easily differentiates and brings life to each of the characters.<br/>There is one book on Audible narrated by an American, and I had to return it. Sorry, but he was awful.


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

    I'm not going to spoil this book for others. There are plenty of moving and memorable moments. James finds love and confronts his demons.


    Any additional comments?

    This is yet another great Riftwar story, one of the best, not that there is a bad book and the Audiobook versions are made greater by Peter Joyce.

    "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!
