This was an exciting book, however, the end was a bit cheesy... the whole witnessing creation thing is just too weird for me to enjoy... plus there is too much explanation of how the world of Midkemia was created. It detracts from the rest of the book, which was exciting.

I liked some of the twists that took place throughout the book, such as who the enemy is, and what it does. Even Murmandamus is not as he appears...

The book contains amazing battle scenes and is excellent.

After Magician, I didn't think he could do it again, but he sure did!!!!
Silverthorn I enjoyed, I even came to love Arutha as I had Pug & Tomas, but Darkness was another piece of pure genius, a master of his art!!
The twists and turns in the story keep you on the edge of your seat, or bed! His imaginative description of Armengar was fantastic. It painted the whole city in my mind in colourful glorious detail and the battle of Armengar had my heart pounding, as it was with Martins dash for help past the brotherhood of the dark path.
Jimmy the hand very quickly became my favourite character,he always was destined for greatness. What a hero and a great friend he is to Arutha.
Every part of this book was so well thought out, it is every bit as good if not better than Magician.
A major must read, big thanks to Feist for another highly entertaining glimpse into his imagination.

After reading the first chapter i couldn't stop. I was riveted by the amazing twisting plot and deep story line. Having read all his books this one is by far his best.
