One of the titans of the fantasy genre is back with a new series that combines the lore of his “Firemane Saga” and “Riftwar Cycle.” Hatu and his friends Hava and Donte have traveled through a rift to Sorcerer’s Isle, where they meet up with Magnus and the reincarnation of Pug. Hatu needs to harness his powers to confront the threats that endanger both worlds. Meanwhile, back in their home world, Declan fortifies their defenses and leads a new kingdom against the Church’s pursuit for world domination. Faced with the devastation wrought by the Pride Lords and the competing powers of the Bitter Sea, it’s easy to root for this large cast of scrappy characters and their camaraderie. With an enchanting plot, engaging battle sequences, and nautical intrigue, this is a tale that transports readers into new worlds.
VERDICT Feist (Master of Furies) is a skilled author of epic fantasy, and this compelling crossover has the same adventurous spirit as his other books. He has established a sweeping and expansive world that thrives upon the elements of classic fantasy.
