Set 10 years after the events in Prince of the Blood, this book is a remarkable adventure of mystery and magic.
In Amos Trask's ship, Prince Nicholas and Squire Harry set sail for a friendly visit to Uncle Martin in Crydee.
But while the two are guests in Crydee, disaster strikes.
Nicholas, third son of Prince Arutha, is a gifted youngster, but sheltered by life at his father's court in Krondor. To learn more of the world outside the palace walls, Nicholas and his squire, Harry, set sail for pastoral Crydee, where Arutha grew up.
Shortly after their arrival, Crydee is brutally attacked. The castle is reduced to ruins, the townspeople slaughtered and two young noblewomen - friends of Nicholas - are abducted. As Nicholas ventures further from the familiar landmarks of his home in pursuit of the invaders, he learns that there is more at stake than the fate of his friends, more even than fate of the Kingdom of the Isles, for behind the murderous pirates stands a force that threatens the entire world of Midkemia, and only he is destined to confront this terrifying threat.

"Great story, rich characters, highly recommended!"
Great story, deep rich world and characters that suck you in. Literally the only thing I wasn't mad about was that he killed off a lot of old beloved characters from the earlier books with barely a mention. The reader is fantastic, his voices and acting bring the characters to life! Highly recommended!
a bit slow to start but once things kick off it becomes a gripping tale of sea and adventure
"Its not Magician or Daughter of the Empire"
It not magician or daughter of the empire but still dam well worth the reading
I read all these books a long time ago, since then I lost my sight and need to use audio. Peter Joyce makes magical again for me! So good to get a fresh 'view' on a book.
"A really good addition to Mr Feist's world"
as this story stands alone really well with some good new characters and of course the magnificent Pug
"I have always liked this infill"
No, but it is a good representation
Prince of the Blood and Shadow of a Dark Queen
The beginning sequence where Nakor and Ghuda meet again and start their journey
