Set 10 years after the events in Prince of the Blood, this book is a remarkable adventure of mystery and magic.
In Amos Trask's ship, Prince Nicholas and Squire Harry set sail for a friendly visit to Uncle Martin in Crydee.
But while the two are guests in Crydee, disaster strikes.
Nicholas, third son of Prince Arutha, is a gifted youngster, but sheltered by life at his father's court in Krondor. To learn more of the world outside the palace walls, Nicholas and his squire, Harry, set sail for pastoral Crydee, where Arutha grew up.
Shortly after their arrival, Crydee is brutally attacked. The castle is reduced to ruins, the townspeople slaughtered and two young noblewomen - friends of Nicholas - are abducted. As Nicholas ventures further from the familiar landmarks of his home in pursuit of the invaders, he learns that there is more at stake than the fate of his friends, more even than fate of the Kingdom of the Isles, for behind the murderous pirates stands a force that threatens the entire world of Midkemia, and only he is destined to confront this terrifying threat.
Another super yarn from the pen of Feist with Peter Joyce's excellent portrayal of the cast of characters.
Best read in order of sequence in the Pug/Magician books, but at a minimum, read the first trilogy starting with 'Magician, otherwise references to certain characters will mean diddly squat!
This book is set mainly at sea and on the antipodean continent of Novindus, giving it fresh perspective and detail from previous books. The never ending story telling skills of Feist, along with his ability to describe objects, people and events while keeping my interest is something special.
I really enjoyed this book, but I have enjoyed every one in the Midcamia saga so far, so I AM biased. I got a refund on one book with a different American narrator........AWFULL!! Stick with Peter Joyce narrated stories.
I'll be buying another one with my next credit.
I've purposely avoided talking about the actual story line of this book so as not to spoil it for others who com after me. You'll have to trust me . 😇

Great story, deep rich world and characters that suck you in. Literally the only thing I wasn't mad about was that he killed off a lot of old beloved characters from the earlier books with barely a mention. The reader is fantastic, his voices and acting bring the characters to life! Highly recommended!

Peter Joyce brings the characters to life. Enjoyed listening to every minute of it. well done
The story builds in tempo and takes you through the twists and turns at a measured pace. Peter Joyce providing a sterling performance building depth to the characters, and continues to draw you into the story. Everytime I get to the end of a book, I'm sad that it has finished....
A thrilling tale read beautifully with such depth as to make me feel as though I were there. Bravo.
I just want to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is not only an outstanding story but Peter Joyce delivers it like no other narrator could.
I would definitely recommend this book narrated by Peter Joyce.
a bit slow to start but once things kick off it becomes a gripping tale of sea and adventure
It not magician or daughter of the empire but still dam well worth the reading
I read all these books a long time ago, since then I lost my sight and need to use audio. Peter Joyce makes magical again for me! So good to get a fresh 'view' on a book.
Peter Joyce is always a pleasure to listen to. He brings the story alive. And the story itself was captivating and exciting. After loving the riftwar saga I was hesitant to read on in case of a let down but I was not disappointed at all.
great new characters and always fantastic old characters. Narration is fantastic as always with Peter
sets up the next set of books nicely? fleshes out beloved characters nicely, all while delivering a new and fantastic adventure on the high seas! yaarrr!
Peter Joyce is a good narrator for Feist but this book seems a little weak compared to Prince of the Blood
Young Nicky is given the limelight he deserves. About time. Well done again Mr Feist
A truly great story. A lot of fun to listen to and it mixes the sad, embrassing in with the anger, frustration and joy perfectly
Love the book. Love the author. his style appeals to young and old. The narrator also does a great job bringing the book to life
The Rift war Cycle are great books. Easy reading with intricate plots. I love them.
read novels twice, now, 10 years later on audio
love the characters the story blending
once I have read all I'll probably start again😊
