Publisher's Summary

The adventure concludes with the triumphant finale in the Riftwar Saga. Raymond E. Feist is an internationally best-selling author.

The battle may be over, but war is coming… The Kingdom forces may have won the first conflict but the enemy has a strong grip on Midkemia and invasion now seems inevitable.

Arutha travels north to confront the Dark Elves, but without help, Pug knows that Arutha's forces face slaughter. With Tomas he must scour the world - and beyond - to find the one person with enough power to give them a chance. If they fail, Midkemia will be the first of many worlds to fall to a madman with the power to dominate death itself…

A Darkness at Sethanon concludes Raymond E. Feist's bestselling Riftwar Saga.

    "I wish Peter Joyce was my dad."

    Brilliant book, read by a master. Peter Joyce could read my mother's obituary and I'd get pumped.

    Story
    "A great story brought to epic conclusion"

    Ending the rift war saga on a epic note, the story completes the one started in Magician. The only fault is the narrators pronunciation of some words and names.
    Specifically Arutha's name pronounced Aroota, and instead of saying "he leapt upon his horse" says "he leaped upon his horse". Cringeworthy.
    However overall a well read story.

    "Almost as good as Magician"
    If you could sum up A Darkness at Sethanon in three words, what would they be?

    Fan freaking tastic!


    What did you like best about this story?

    This book was well paced and delivered entertaining story throughout. Unlike book 2 (Silverthorn), this book almost rivaled book 1, Magician.


    Have you listened to any of Peter Joyce’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    This is as good as the first two books in terms of performance.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not until later on in the story. But still entertaining!


    Any additional comments?

    GET IT NAO!

    An action-packed adventure till the end! Can the reunited childhood friends save not only Midkemia but the whole universe? Are they strong enough to battle against an ancient power? While waiting on an answer, the reader must join the recklessly brave Prince Arutha and his companions in a world where they are hated not respected and can they trust an old foe?
    This last instalment of the Rifwar Saga Trilogy will keep you on the edge of your seat till the end. A definite MUST BUY TRILOGY.

    "Brilliant performance"

    An average end to an enjoyable trilogy. The first book, The Magician, is certainly the highlight. I say that because Silverthorn was shortlived, and Darkness at Sethanon - this book - does well to establish more about the story behind the story, only to rush the ending in a busy and confusing manner.

    Often it's left to the 'next line' from a character to explain what is happening, which can make it frustrating.

    It's certainly not bad, all of my comments are in fact relative only to the other two books.

    Plus, Peter Joyce's narration is sublime.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend if only to get to the end of the trilogy


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Remove the magician dream sequence elements


    Which character – as performed by Peter Joyce – was your favourite?

    Jimmy the hand
