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.

"Epic scope… vivid imagination… a significant contribution to the growth of the field of fantasy." (Washington Post) "Well-written… intelligent… intriguing." (Publishers Weekly)
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.
Fan freaking tastic!
This book was well paced and delivered entertaining story throughout. Unlike book 2 (Silverthorn), this book almost rivaled book 1, Magician.
This is as good as the first two books in terms of performance.
Not until later on in the story. But still entertaining!
GET IT NAO!
An excellent finish to the trilogy and a great addition to the world that has been created for this series.
"If you like wizards dragons you will love this ."
Really enjoyed it
Lord of the rings
all of it
This would make one hell of a film
Peter Joyce as always great .
on to more by Feist .
Still as good as the first time I read the story. A must to listen to.
"enjoyed book a lot"
enjoyed this book. very well read. fill words for stupid twenty word review that is insisted on.
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.
"Not as good as i remember"
I would recommend if only to get to the end of the trilogy
Remove the magician dream sequence elements
Jimmy the hand
Wonderful tale from stay to finish. Will read once again by Peter Joyce. I cannot wait for the next one!
one of the best trilogy I have heard downloading the other trilogy now pure brilliance.
A perfect end to the best of epic sagas.
I am left with a hole in my life that it's over... Oh well back to the start...
Jimmy reward lol grate story and grate reader all tho the gap in the speech where irritating but other wise just brill
"Feist at his best"
What I would call a real good read. read this series years ago and found them really entertaining. I use the audio books when driving my daily commute. A book lasts me nearly a month and breaks up the drive to and from work. I must give the advice buy in order as they will not make sense otherwise,
A great storyline with magic and murder.
Joyce is entertaining as always. A good narrator.
These books if made into a film would make LOTR look like a short film Fab story line and great characters.
Five star seller
