    DescriptionThe second book in Raymond Feist's super-selling quartet: The Serpentwar Saga. Triumphant but overconfident after his defeat of the reptilian Sauur army, Roo must resist a beguiling seductress who threatens to undo him and all of Midkemia. Roo Avery, recently returned from a harrowing brush with the armies of the Emerald Queen, is now free to choose his own destiny and his ultimate ambition is to become one of the richest and most powerful merchants in Midkemia. But nothing can prepare him for the dangers of the new life he has chosen, where the repayment of a debt can be as deadly as a knife in the shadows. Even those closest to him are suspect and as Roo struggles to build his financial empire, betrayal is always close at hand. But while Roo works towards achieving his goal, memories of the invasion haunt him still. For the war with the Emerald Queen is far from over and the inevitable confrontation will pose the biggest threat yet to his new found wealth and power.

    Review quote
    Praise for Raymond E. Feist: 'File under guilty pleasure' Guardian 'Get in at the start of a master's new series' Daily Sport 'Well-written and distinctly above average... intelligent... intriguing.' Publishers Weekly ' Epic scope...vivid imagination...a significant contribution to the growth of the field of fantasy.' Washington Post
    Review text
    Part two of Feist's latest epic (following Shadow of a Dark Queen, 1994) set in Midkemia, the scene of his previous Riftwar saga, with certain characters making a reappearance. This time, against the backdrop of an impending invasion by Demon Lords, Erik von Darkmoor continues his adventures while his friend Roo develops a new career as a merchant prince. Meantime, the snake-humanoid Saaur have prepared an evil green stone, charged with the power of thousands of sacrificed souls, that is the key to opening the doorway to the world of the Demon Lords. Midkemia addicts will be accustomed to Feist's plodding, self-absorbed style and lack of true initiative, and should be content; newcomers needn't bother. (Kirkus Reviews)
