I have read all three of the books in this series, and by far this is the best. The characters are both realistic and admirable. The story sucks you in and if you have read Fiests Magician's apprentice series the clever way the authors tie this in makes the reader feel like they can relate to the conflicts in this book. I have re-read this book several times- it's like a good movie that you just can't get enough of. It is rare to read a book where the main character is a woman- and even rarer to read one where the main character grows and changes so dramatically. The book itself encompasses so many different scenarios that it is hard to get bored. I would definitley recommened reading daughter of the empire before this one- and maybe even magicians apprentice and the sequal to really understand all the nuances in this book - but if not READ THIS BOOK- it is wonderful.

Apart from the last 50-60 pages, I found this book rather dull and a bit too long. I felt as if most parts dragged on for too long. There were ocassional parts where I would want to keep reading, but for most of it, my eyes became tired and I found my mind wandering. It was a bit too much to get my head around. However, the ideas and the storyline I still found interesting.

This trilogy, while set in the 'other' universe, is a wonderful addition to the Riftwar series

Awful, overdramatic narration and language. Mary Sue'ish protagonist whose decisions are always right, and whose plans always succeed in face of all opposition and disapproval. I've read and enjoyed Magician by Raymond Feist, so I must assume that it is Janny Wurts that have provided the purple prose. In fact, the story is so weak, and lacking in comparison to Magician, that it seems as if Feist have made a rough outline of the trilogy, and handed it over to Wurts who has then made a wish fullfilment story. I didn't think the second book could be worse than the first, but the amount of exposition about the events of books one, convinced me otherwise. This is a trilogy, not a series of loosely connected novels. It should be possible to expect the reader to have read the previous novel, and thereby avoid boring her with recapping the entire storyline.

The saga of Mara of the Acoma continues. Mara still spends much of her tume dealing with Minwanabi plots to bring her life to an abrupt end. Along the way she finds new and interesting thoughts and ideas being laid before her by one of her Midkimian slaves. Mara finds herself learning that the Nail the stands up gets the hammer. Mara does an excellent job avoiding that hammer with the help of her loyal advisors.

Book two of this trilogy continues development of the characters and the changing opinions of the main protagonist. The authors have the ability to really engage the interest and emotions.

Once again the dynamic duo of Feist and Wurts have put together another great book. I enjoyed this book as much, if not more than the first book. Their combined writing styles keeps the story going at a good pace that is never boring. Once you start reading you do not want to put it down. They kept true to the characters and managed to add new demensions to the main ones. This whole series is very entertaining and engrossing. I can't wait to read the next one, Mistress of the Empire and highly recommend all of these books to anyone and everyone.
