The Serpentwar Saga is set in Feist's world of Midkemia. The first trilogy (done in four paperbacks), The Riftwar Saga, introduced us to some memorable characters (Pug, Thomas, Jimmy the Hand, Arutha) and to the world of Midkemia. After the Riftwar Saga, Feist wrote two loosely-connected novels (Princes of the Blood and The King's Buccaneer) that dealt with the children of the heroes of the first books. The Serpentwar Saga picks up after that and carries on a similar plot but introduces several new characters, not least of whom are Roo Avery and Erik Von Darkmoor.

Wow, this is the second time I have read this book, and I say... wow, again. The strong point of the book is the characters themselves, they are deep, and i enjoyed how REF presented how they coped with trauma. I enjoy the threat they are up against, a war coming that involves magic and a behemoth of an enemy. I found myself laughing at this book, as Bobby deLoungeville reminds me of the drill instructor from the film 'Full Metal Jacket'! A definately good read and not at all a waste of time!!!! Well done REF!

The Serpentwar Saga continues in the vain of the fourth and fifth bridging books of the Riftwar Saga. Feist brings to bear his full armoury of genre evolving scope and the battles that are fought here shift the boundaries of the Tolkienesque "last ditch fight for the people". Larger in scale than the first series and fulfilled an important flaw left wide open after Sethanon.
