I am permitted HTR spoilers mods? Anyway, believe this is due in the Spring in the US but over here in the UK, it officially came out last Thursday! My copy arrived Friday and I finished it yesterday. For now I'll keep the comments general so as to not spoiler - as I need to know the rules here - but if permitted, details will follow. Some time back Feist gave an interview where he mentioned 5 riftwars - the first of these was the war with the Tsurani, the second was the one with the Serpent Queen and then he sketched out 3 more in brief - DarkWar, DemonWar and ChaosWar. I say it was some time ago as after reading that interview I was inclined to return to his work having stopped at the dark finale that was Shards of a Shattered Crown and there's 6 hardbacks on the bookcase looking at me, so it's at least 7 years ago! But a more recent interview can be found here: http://www.fantasyguide.de/4683.0.html The DarkWar epic was told in the Conclave of Shadows and DarkWar trilogies and was indeed suitably cataclysmic, with a major character death and a major amount of destruction. In the same interview, Feist had explained the DemonWar was short but nasty and having now read the books, I see what he meant, for it earns its description. Yet in its finale, this series does something unusual in that it goes against convention - to say more will require spoilers though. Finally, in this final book of the DemonWar, it's clearer than ever that Feist is preparing for a final series. There are a number of revelations hinted at, which will likely be spelled out in the first book of the ChaosWar trilogy. The interview made it quite clear that this series will be of major impact as it draws it all to a close. So that's all for now unless I'm the only one around here reading Feist's stuff? I wouldn't say it's the most incredible work I've ever read, but like Brooks, I always find Feist's work very entertaining and great for light reading.
