Publisher's Summary

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.

A truly enjoyable read.

A good read in that it was an easy tale to follow, very well written with enjoyable characters and hateable bad guys.
As is usual Peter Joyce made the telling of the tale so good you could almost feel you were in the story watching it all from a short distance.

Brilliantly read, thoroughly enjoyed the story!

Peter Joyce is always a pleasure to listen to. He brings the story alive. And the story itself was captivating and exciting. After loving the riftwar saga I was hesitant to read on in case of a let down but I was not disappointed at all.

Amazing Story. Terrible Narrator

Raymond E Feist books are legendary and magnificent. The original Narrator they used for Magician not from Harper Audio was amazing, however Peter Joyce makes the top 10 of worst narrators on audible. Accents are shocking with men sounding like screeching women, he cant pronounce word properly using his own take on names, and overall just a very bad performance.

As for the story .. amazing, amazing, amazing .. but narrator spoils it sadly.
