This was the conclusion of the Krondor series. It was good to finally see what happened cause there were hints on the (chronologically) next books but not many details, and I was really looking forward to find out who the Crawler was.
I wouldn't recommend this book to be your first try on Feist's world cause it's right in the middle of the overall story. But if you love epic fantasy you need to read the Riftwar Saga, starting from Magician.
I am really glad this book was published right before Magician's End (two more months for that one) cause it reminded me where it all begun, the characters that made me fall in love with the world of Midkemia. I can't wait for the end, although I am afraid it's going to be heart breaking.
