Publisher's Summary

“Undeniably riveting.” (Booklist)

The terrible Emerald Queen is vanquished...but the war in Midkemia is not yet won, as the remarkable Raymond E. Feist concludes his magnificent Serpentwar Saga with Shards of a Broken Crown - a spellbinding tale of magic, conflict, and treachery that sees the rise of a new threat from the ashes of defeat, an evil poised to strike mercilessly at realm triumphant but weakened by war. 

This is epic fantasy adventure at its finest - a classic that stands tall alongside the best works of Terry Goodkind, George R. R. Martin, Terry Brooks, and other acclaimed fantasists. Feist once again works his breathtaking magic in Shards of a Broken Crown, and, as always, he “brings a new world alive” (Portland Oregonian).

Great book, marginal narrator

I’ve been reading these books since the mid ‘80s. Very wonderful stories that keep the reader, or in the case of audible, listener engaged.
The narrator, however, drives me up the wall. Where do his pronunciations come from? Aruta? Gatis? What is a leftenant? Nicholas Guy Smith did an excellent job with the first four books. Why couldn’t he continue with the rest?

ending issue

Listened to all 4 books, loved them all until the ending. Felt like a lecture, as if it was turned over to a liberal professor at the very end. Definite ideology applied to ending not appreciated. Satisfaction denied. Had I stopped after the 3rd book I would have felt better about them.

Great book! Wish Audible didn’t suck.

This is the second book I’ve read through Audible where about 30 minutes from the end, the player just completely fucks up and stops playing the book. This is completely unacceptable considering how much Audible charges and how they make it nearly impossible to cancel your subscription.

Excellent ending to this series

Great story plot & enjoyed that the characters were able to chose their destinies instead of going with tradition. Many interesting twists though out the book. Excellent read or listen for any one who enjoys excellent fantasy novels.

By far the worst book of the saga.

I've absolutely loved the previous three books. This one seems to be jumping from one story, character to the next. Two main characters were basically forgotten. The book is a big disappointment in my eyes, unfitting ending to great saga.
