This is probably my favorite book ever. Feist makes his characters so easy to relate to and makes you want to see them do well. This book keeps you on your toes by moving quite quickly and yet not being to complex to understand. Although, it is useful to read his other books before reading this series or you may miss some of the finer points.

I have to say that I'm glad I stumbled upon the work of Raymond E. Feist. To date I've only read three of his books (the first three of the Serpentwar saga). Quite simply, Feist is a tremendous author. In Rage of a Demon King we are presented with a nation which becomes flooded with war. To me, Feist's greatest skill is in how he moves these characters through these situations. No character becomes boring because they're too powerful. From Roo, whose only weapons are his wit, wealth and simple blades, to Tomas, who is backed by a kingdom of elven warriors, is a member of a race who were powerful enough to challenge the gods and whose best friend is one of the most powerful mages who ever lived, every character is faced with real problems and challenges. I found Roo's flight with family and friends from the forces of the Emerald Queen particularly gripping. It was excellent that a main character could be made so vulnerable. Other good qualities include Feist's pacing. R.A. Salvatore is the only other author I've read who can keep you turning pages so quickly. All in all, I highly recommend the Serpentwar Saga to any fantasy fan out there, particularly Dungeons and Dragons fans.
