Raymond E. Feist was the fourth fantasy writer I ever read. The first was Michael Ende - The Never Ending Story, followed by Anne McCaffrey's Dragonflight, then Tolkien's The Hobbit. Magician had all the elements of the first three authors that satisfied my young mind's craving for adventure. Yet where the point of difference set Feist apart, was in his story of the Royal family, the conDoin dynasty. There are certainly other departures, yet this storyline has allowed the world of Midkemia to flourish through successive generations and give the new plots a scope that few authors could hope for. Feist ranks as the most consistent and prolific Fantasy Writer of his generation.

Riftwar Saga/ Serpent War SeriesThese books are absolutely amazing! I first read Magician: Apprentice at the age of 10, and ever since then I have been hooked. Both the Riftwar Saga and the Serpentwar Series captivated me and had me wanting more. I have read the books many times, and each is as enjoyable as the last. In my opinion, there should be movies made about both series, they are far better than Lord of the Rings. I would definitively pay to see any one of these books in theater, and would recommend it to all my friends. The way Feist builds his world makes me feel as though I am in Midkimea along with Pug and Tomas, on Kelewan with Milamber, or fighting alongside Eric and Roo on the plains of Novindus. Mr. Feist, I congratulate you on your amazing books. Keep up the good writing.
