    I received an advance reader copy of King of Ashes in exchange for an honest review. I would like to thank Raymond E. Feist and Harper Voyager. For many generations, the five great Kingdom's had enjoyed a time of peace and prosperity. Each realm had its own Monarch and the story be...

    I received an advanced reading copy in exchange for an honest review. Feist is back in form as the King of Ashes establishes a promising and solid foundation for a completely new saga away from the massive Riftwar Cycles multi-series. Five kingdoms used to co-exist in Garn, sprea...

    I was a big fan of Feist's Riftwar books back in my younger days but lost track of the series more than a decade back. I was hoping that reading this brand new fantasy series of Feist's would inspire me to go back and try a full reread of the much more intimidatingly sized Riftwar seri...

    It was fantastic to read a new Feist book. It confirmed yet again that he is one of my favorite authors! This book felt like the start of a great story but really like a start, hence 4 stars. In the end it was really picking up and I can't wait for the next installment! ...

    Its interesting that the release date for this was a few weeks before in Australia vs the USA. I have always been a massive Feist fan, and grew up reading about Pug. It was probably one of my first ever fantasy reads which I became obsessed with. This has all the hallmarks of a Feist f...

    Haven?t read anything by this author but heard great things about it. I?m very excited to read this. ...

    A new Feist, not only a new Feist but a new series, this has been a book i have waited for with some anticipation. I?ve been a fan of this writers work since my early reading days, Magician was a revelation, how fantasy could be written, to be epic and sweeping, and yet immediate and...

    I received an ARC of this book and here is my honest review. After 30 books in the Riftwar world which include 10 separate series Raymond Feist is back with a brand new series in a brand new world and it is amazing! The prologue is about 50 pages and sets the stage... Five king...

    Damn. I had high hopes for this, but it just fell flat. I've been picking away at the digital ARC for the better part of two months now, and it's finally time to shift it into the DNF pile. More than anything, this reminded me of how bland Feist's work can be without a solid cast of...

    Starts off in the middle of a battle with some Song of Ice and Fire like intrigue and nastiness. Four kingdoms of the land gang up on the fifth and wealthiest one and destroy it. Firemane's infant son is secretly spirited away. Then we flash-forward 17 years to when the boy, Hatu, has ...

    This was the first Feist book I've read, and I'm impressed! I'm definitely going to have to read his other stuff now after this book. I loved his world-building, and the characters were so well done. The only thing I didn't like about it was the fact that some things were repeated a fe...

    "King of Ashes" was the last book in my pile of winnings from the Goodreads drawings. I regret that it took me this long to finish it, but I was busy. So now I would like to post my review. Years ago in Japan, the ninjas were a force to be reckoned with. They were not only skilled a...

    4.5/5 Mon avis en Français My English review I discovered Raymond E. Feist a long time ago and when I heard about this new series, I was once again intrigued. It must be said that the synopsis, full of mysteries, made me really want to know more! We discover in parallel tw...

    I?ve read several excellent fantasy novels recently and so it was with some reluctance that I picked up this one, thinking the odds of yet another 5-star fantasy novel would be unlikely. Nevertheless, I was most pleasantly rewarded by perhaps the best of the batch, for this one start...

    http://delivreenlivres.blogspot.com/2... Une début d'histoire bien épique et pleine de potentiel que j'ai pris plaisir à lire malgré quelques défauts dont le fait qu'on a un peu l'impression de n'avoir lu qu'une longue introduction une fois le livre refermé. Quand j'ai vu q...

    Since when did the genre known as Fantasy come to mean "political intrigue in a fake medieval Britain, plus some running away from bad guys"? This is a book about a magic person, in which practically no magic is used or experienced whatsoever. But the thrilling plot! And the depth o...

    What upset me the most about this book was the potential I saw in it. I normally go for better writing but can overlook that if the concept is interesting enough, and there were some genuinely intriguing plot points that hooked me into it and kept me reading in the beginning. The whole...

    I had a quick look at others reviews of this, after I had finished this book. Just to see what others were saying about the storyline. I am a long time reader of Feist, ever since magician was released here in the Uk. In fact I spent part of my first every wages on a copy, which was...

    3.5 stars rounded down. So this is Feist's first book outside Midkemia for an awfully long time. I was, and am, a huge fan of his even though the later books in the series had some serious issues. It's fairly obvious from the start that he is trying to be a little edgier here. There...

    Fans of Feist will be thrilled to discover a whole new world which Feist will explore in this new series. They may also find it refreshing that Feist has apparently refreshed his repertoire of fantastical settings and creatures/magics. Fans of Feist will not be disappointed, and will h...

    It has been a long while since we saw anything new from Raymond Feist. I loved his early books, but ended up confused by all the various sagas he produced and kind of lost the will to live. Thank Goodness this is a new series with no reference to his previous works. A world with fiv...

    After 20+ books in the same world it's great to see Feist trying something new and pulling it off. He's playing to his strengths and it's still very much a Raymond E. Feist book, in a good way. The world is new with a grittier and lower fantasy feel, unburdened from the 1980's epic ...

    King of Ashes is the first in a new series, and I have to admit I rather enjoyed it. The chapters alternate between the two main protagonists, Declan and Hatu. Declan is an apprentice smith, while Hatu is being tried by a secret society in the arts of assassination and crime. Each y...

    I grew up reading Raymond E. Feist books. His Magician series was one of my favorites as a teenager. I read the next several series that take place in the same world and noticed a pattern. He started throwing in a lot of sexual content for no apparent reason. It was never extremely gra...

    This wasn't something I had high expectations of going in, but it didn't even really clear that low bar. It's not even so much that it's bad, but that there wasn't anything particularly great about it -- it's like Feist is still writing the same epic fantasy I was reading growing up in...

    Fans of Feist will be thrilled to discover a whole new world which Feist will explore in this new series. They may also find it refreshing that Feist has apparently refreshed his repertoire of fantastical settings and creatures/magics. Fans of Feist will not be disappointed, and will h...

    "There was no precedent for this butchery, and no one could reconcile what they were about to see with what they understood of the traditional order of things. History taught that a king did not kill a king, save on the field of battle." For centuries the five kingdoms in Garn have ...

    Un fantasy senza fantasy. I miss magic and sense of wonder. Cosa è successo a questo scrittore, un tempo originale, ricco di idee, i cui libri traboccavano di magia, creature fantastiche e avventure in mondi suggestivi e tutti da scoprire? Feist evidentemente è stato contaminato da...

    Originally published at Reading Reality It takes a very special kind of magic to capture lightning in a bottle. Magician had just that kind of magic, but that was a long time ago and world away from Firemane and King of Ashes. In the intervening decades (Magician was originally publ...

    It has been a long while since we saw anything new from Raymond Feist. I loved his early books, but ended up confused by all the various sagas he produced and kind of lost the will to live. Thank Goodness this is a new series with no reference to his previous works. A world with fiv...

    Feist has his top game going on with KoA! Wonderful start to a new series and I'm already feeling homesick and ready fro start the next installment. Fantastic world building and characters. The entire book felt a little like a prologue but it completely worked and really primed me for ...

    After 20+ books in the same world it's great to see Feist trying something new and pulling it off. He's playing to his strengths and it's still very much a Raymond E. Feist book, in a good way. The world is new with a grittier and lower fantasy feel, unburdened from the 1980's epic ...

    King of Ashes is the first in a new series, and I have to admit I rather enjoyed it. The chapters alternate between the two main protagonists, Declan and Hatu. Declan is an apprentice smith, while Hatu is being tried by a secret society in the arts of assassination and crime. Each y...

    I received an advanced reading copy in exchange for an honest review. Feist is back in form as the King of Ashes establishes a promising and solid foundation for a completely new saga away from the massive Riftwar Cycles multi-series. Five kingdoms used to co-exist in Garn, sprea...

    I was a big fan of Feist's Riftwar books back in my younger days but lost track of the series more than a decade back. I was hoping that reading this brand new fantasy series of Feist's would inspire me to go back and try a full reread of the much more intimidatingly sized Riftwar seri...

    It was fantastic to read a new Feist book. It confirmed yet again that he is one of my favorite authors! This book felt like the start of a great story but really like a start, hence 4 stars. In the end it was really picking up and I can't wait for the next installment! ...

    Its interesting that the release date for this was a few weeks before in Australia vs the USA. I have always been a massive Feist fan, and grew up reading about Pug. It was probably one of my first ever fantasy reads which I became obsessed with. This has all the hallmarks of a Feist f...

    Haven?t read anything by this author but heard great things about it. I?m very excited to read this. ...

    A new Feist, not only a new Feist but a new series, this has been a book i have waited for with some anticipation. I?ve been a fan of this writers work since my early reading days, Magician was a revelation, how fantasy could be written, to be epic and sweeping, and yet immediate and...

    I received an ARC of this book and here is my honest review. After 30 books in the Riftwar world which include 10 separate series Raymond Feist is back with a brand new series in a brand new world and it is amazing! The prologue is about 50 pages and sets the stage... Five king...

    Damn. I had high hopes for this, but it just fell flat. I've been picking away at the digital ARC for the better part of two months now, and it's finally time to shift it into the DNF pile. More than anything, this reminded me of how bland Feist's work can be without a solid cast of...

    Starts off in the middle of a battle with some Song of Ice and Fire like intrigue and nastiness. Four kingdoms of the land gang up on the fifth and wealthiest one and destroy it. Firemane's infant son is secretly spirited away. Then we flash-forward 17 years to when the boy, Hatu, has ...

    This was the first Feist book I've read, and I'm impressed! I'm definitely going to have to read his other stuff now after this book. I loved his world-building, and the characters were so well done. The only thing I didn't like about it was the fact that some things were repeated a fe...

    "King of Ashes" was the last book in my pile of winnings from the Goodreads drawings. I regret that it took me this long to finish it, but I was busy. So now I would like to post my review. Years ago in Japan, the ninjas were a force to be reckoned with. They were not only skilled a...

    4.5/5 Mon avis en Français My English review I discovered Raymond E. Feist a long time ago and when I heard about this new series, I was once again intrigued. It must be said that the synopsis, full of mysteries, made me really want to know more! We discover in parallel tw...

    I?ve read several excellent fantasy novels recently and so it was with some reluctance that I picked up this one, thinking the odds of yet another 5-star fantasy novel would be unlikely. Nevertheless, I was most pleasantly rewarded by perhaps the best of the batch, for this one start...

    I was a big fan of Feist's Riftwar books back in my younger days but lost track of the series more than a decade back. I was hoping that reading this brand new fantasy series of Feist's would inspire me to go back and try a full reread of the much more intimidatingly sized Riftwar seri...

    It was fantastic to read a new Feist book. It confirmed yet again that he is one of my favorite authors! This book felt like the start of a great story but really like a start, hence 4 stars. In the end it was really picking up and I can't wait for the next installment! ...

    Its interesting that the release date for this was a few weeks before in Australia vs the USA. I have always been a massive Feist fan, and grew up reading about Pug. It was probably one of my first ever fantasy reads which I became obsessed with. This has all the hallmarks of a Feist f...

    Haven?t read anything by this author but heard great things about it. I?m very excited to read this. ...

    A new Feist, not only a new Feist but a new series, this has been a book i have waited for with some anticipation. I?ve been a fan of this writers work since my early reading days, Magician was a revelation, how fantasy could be written, to be epic and sweeping, and yet immediate and...

    I received an ARC of this book and here is my honest review. After 30 books in the Riftwar world which include 10 separate series Raymond Feist is back with a brand new series in a brand new world and it is amazing! The prologue is about 50 pages and sets the stage... Five king...

    Damn. I had high hopes for this, but it just fell flat. I've been picking away at the digital ARC for the better part of two months now, and it's finally time to shift it into the DNF pile. More than anything, this reminded me of how bland Feist's work can be without a solid cast of...

    Starts off in the middle of a battle with some Song of Ice and Fire like intrigue and nastiness. Four kingdoms of the land gang up on the fifth and wealthiest one and destroy it. Firemane's infant son is secretly spirited away. Then we flash-forward 17 years to when the boy, Hatu, has ...

    This was the first Feist book I've read, and I'm impressed! I'm definitely going to have to read his other stuff now after this book. I loved his world-building, and the characters were so well done. The only thing I didn't like about it was the fact that some things were repeated a fe...

    "King of Ashes" was the last book in my pile of winnings from the Goodreads drawings. I regret that it took me this long to finish it, but I was busy. So now I would like to post my review. Years ago in Japan, the ninjas were a force to be reckoned with. They were not only skilled a...

    4.5/5 Mon avis en Français My English review I discovered Raymond E. Feist a long time ago and when I heard about this new series, I was once again intrigued. It must be said that the synopsis, full of mysteries, made me really want to know more! We discover in parallel tw...

    I?ve read several excellent fantasy novels recently and so it was with some reluctance that I picked up this one, thinking the odds of yet another 5-star fantasy novel would be unlikely. Nevertheless, I was most pleasantly rewarded by perhaps the best of the batch, for this one start...

    Since when did the genre known as Fantasy come to mean "political intrigue in a fake medieval Britain, plus some running away from bad guys"? This is a book about a magic person, in which practically no magic is used or experienced whatsoever. But the thrilling plot! And the depth o...

    What upset me the most about this book was the potential I saw in it. I normally go for better writing but can overlook that if the concept is interesting enough, and there were some genuinely intriguing plot points that hooked me into it and kept me reading in the beginning. The whole...

    I had a quick look at others reviews of this, after I had finished this book. Just to see what others were saying about the storyline. I am a long time reader of Feist, ever since magician was released here in the Uk. In fact I spent part of my first every wages on a copy, which was...

    3.5 stars rounded down. So this is Feist's first book outside Midkemia for an awfully long time. I was, and am, a huge fan of his even though the later books in the series had some serious issues. It's fairly obvious from the start that he is trying to be a little edgier here. There...

    Fans of Feist will be thrilled to discover a whole new world which Feist will explore in this new series. They may also find it refreshing that Feist has apparently refreshed his repertoire of fantastical settings and creatures/magics. Fans of Feist will not be disappointed, and will h...

    After 20+ books in the same world it's great to see Feist trying something new and pulling it off. He's playing to his strengths and it's still very much a Raymond E. Feist book, in a good way. The world is new with a grittier and lower fantasy feel, unburdened from the 1980's epic ...

    King of Ashes is the first in a new series, and I have to admit I rather enjoyed it. The chapters alternate between the two main protagonists, Declan and Hatu. Declan is an apprentice smith, while Hatu is being tried by a secret society in the arts of assassination and crime. Each y...

    Damn. I had high hopes for this, but it just fell flat. I've been picking away at the digital ARC for the better part of two months now, and it's finally time to shift it into the DNF pile. More than anything, this reminded me of how bland Feist's work can be without a solid cast of...

    Starts off in the middle of a battle with some Song of Ice and Fire like intrigue and nastiness. Four kingdoms of the land gang up on the fifth and wealthiest one and destroy it. Firemane's infant son is secretly spirited away. Then we flash-forward 17 years to when the boy, Hatu, has ...

    I was a big fan of Feist's Riftwar books back in my younger days but lost track of the series more than a decade back. I was hoping that reading this brand new fantasy series of Feist's would inspire me to go back and try a full reread of the much more intimidatingly sized Riftwar seri...

    It was fantastic to read a new Feist book. It confirmed yet again that he is one of my favorite authors! This book felt like the start of a great story but really like a start, hence 4 stars. In the end it was really picking up and I can't wait for the next installment! ...

    Since when did the genre known as Fantasy come to mean "political intrigue in a fake medieval Britain, plus some running away from bad guys"? This is a book about a magic person, in which practically no magic is used or experienced whatsoever. But the thrilling plot! And the depth o...

    What upset me the most about this book was the potential I saw in it. I normally go for better writing but can overlook that if the concept is interesting enough, and there were some genuinely intriguing plot points that hooked me into it and kept me reading in the beginning. The whole...

    I had a quick look at others reviews of this, after I had finished this book. Just to see what others were saying about the storyline. I am a long time reader of Feist, ever since magician was released here in the Uk. In fact I spent part of my first every wages on a copy, which was...

    3.5 stars rounded down. So this is Feist's first book outside Midkemia for an awfully long time. I was, and am, a huge fan of his even though the later books in the series had some serious issues. It's fairly obvious from the start that he is trying to be a little edgier here. There...

    Fans of Feist will be thrilled to discover a whole new world which Feist will explore in this new series. They may also find it refreshing that Feist has apparently refreshed his repertoire of fantastical settings and creatures/magics. Fans of Feist will not be disappointed, and will h...

    "There was no precedent for this butchery, and no one could reconcile what they were about to see with what they understood of the traditional order of things. History taught that a king did not kill a king, save on the field of battle." For centuries the five kingdoms in Garn have ...

    Un fantasy senza fantasy. I miss magic and sense of wonder. Cosa è successo a questo scrittore, un tempo originale, ricco di idee, i cui libri traboccavano di magia, creature fantastiche e avventure in mondi suggestivi e tutti da scoprire? Feist evidentemente è stato contaminato da...

    Originally published at Reading Reality It takes a very special kind of magic to capture lightning in a bottle. Magician had just that kind of magic, but that was a long time ago and world away from Firemane and King of Ashes. In the intervening decades (Magician was originally publ...

    It has been a long while since we saw anything new from Raymond Feist. I loved his early books, but ended up confused by all the various sagas he produced and kind of lost the will to live. Thank Goodness this is a new series with no reference to his previous works. A world with fiv...

    Feist has his top game going on with KoA! Wonderful start to a new series and I'm already feeling homesick and ready fro start the next installment. Fantastic world building and characters. The entire book felt a little like a prologue but it completely worked and really primed me for ...
