Publisher's Summary

A poisoned bolt has struck down the Princess Anita on the day of her wedding to Prince Arutha of Krondor.

To save his beloved, Arutha sets out in search of the mytics herb called Silverthorn that grows only in the dark and forbidding land of the Spellweavers.

Accompanied by a mercenary, a minstrel, and a clever young thief, he will confront an ancient evil and do battle with the dark powers that threaten the enchanted realm of Midkemia.

Critic Reviews

"I found Silverthorn to be as exciting and absorbing as Magician in every way. The excellent characterization wedded to a tight and well-timed plot makes it one of the outstanding fantasy offerings of the season." (Andre Norton)

I cherish this series.

I have read these books many times. These characters are dear to me. I was so happy to get these in audio book form. But the narrator is ill suited for these books. His pronunciation of places and names pulls me out of the story. His performance is too sedate for this tale.

Another great book

Fiest does it again. Another great book. It ends a little abruptly but only makes me get the next one faster.

Some minor weak points, but an excellent 3rd book.

Centering more on Arutha and his clandestine mission, to a degree, Silverthorn departs from Pug. It does not hurt for this, but helps to continue Feist's progression of opening a larger story to his audience.

At the outset of this series, I considered him to be slightly deficient, but Nicholas Guy Smith has developed into a solid narrator. While he doesn't possess a wide range of unique voices, in this third entry into the Riftwar Saga he shows himself more than capable of a compelling reading.

In many series, the penultimate book lacks a satisfying resolution. Not so with Silverthorn. It is, however, within this conclusion that it suffers. It completes the tale, but it feels as though it was wrapped hastily and without the time and consideration that the rest of the novel exudes. Minor events seem illogical and the number of pages given are few (perhaps more of an editing decision).

Again, the deficiencies here really aren't significant enough to reduce it to 4 stars. This is a well-written tale with characters we're growing to enjoy, love, and even respect.

Brilliant!

Simply outstanding! Again Pug and Tomas lead the way. Arutha, Jimmy and the others must play their part. This series only gets better.

A formidable followup to Magician!

I've read this a few times in my life. A wonderful entry from a fantastic series. The performance was very well done and engaging.
