    DescriptionSet ten years after the events in "Prince of the Blood", this book is a remarkable adventure of mystery and magic. In Amos Trask's ship, Prince Nicholas and Squire Harry set sail for a friendly visit to Uncle Martin in Crydee. But while the two are guests in Crydee, disaster strikes. Nicholas, third son of Prince Arutha, is a gifted youngster, but sheltered by life at his father's court in Krondor. To learn more of the world outside the palace walls, Nicholas and his squire, Harry, set sail for pastoral Crydee, where Arutha grew up. Shortly after their arrival, Crydee is brutally attacked. The castle is reduced to ruins, the townspeople slaughtered and two young noblewomen - friends of Nicholas - are abducted. As Nicholas ventures further from the familiar landmarks of his home in pursuit of the invaders, he learns that there is more at stake than the fate of his friends, more even than fate of the Kingdom of the Isles, for behind the murderous pirates stands a force that threatens the entire world of Midkemia, and only he is destined to confront this terrifying threat.

    Review text
    Feist returns yet again to Midkemia, the world of his "Riftwar" trilogy (Magician, Silverthorn, A Darkness at Sethanon), this time focusing on the younger generation: his protagonist, Prince Nicholas, is the son of a main character in the trilogy. As the title suggests, the story is a generic swashbuckler, with no pretense to great originality or depth. Sent to a frontier outpost for a taste of the rugged life, Nicholas and his friend Harry are thrust into danger when pirates raid the town and make off with hostages, including the ruler's daughter. With the help of a crusty old admiral, Amos, the boys sail off in pursuit. After a variety of adventures - shipwreck, starvation, ambush, sorcery, and plenty of combat - they arrive home safe, ready to assume the responsibilities of leadership. Feist includes a full complement of colorful supporting characters (some familiar from previous volumes), exotic settings, and fantastic marvels - including a dragon. Feist's large body of fans, and younger readers who haven't seen it all before, will probably find this one exactly to their taste. More sophisticated readers may be annoyed by the author's plodding style, especially at such generous length. (Kirkus Reviews)
