Description

"Feist has the universe firmly under his control."
--Contra Costa Times

"Feist has a natural talent for keeping the reader turning pages."
--Chicago-Sun Times

Midkemia's fifth and final Riftwar--the devastating Chaoswar--explodes in the opening volume of Raymond E. Feist's spectacular new epic fantasy trilogy of magic, conflict, and world-shattering peril. A Kingdom Besieged is a breathtaking adventure that brings back Pug--first introduced in Feist's classic debut novel, Magician, and now Midkemia's most powerful sorcerer--who faces a major magical cataclysm that forces him to question everything he's ever held as true and dear...including the loyalty of his beloved son Magnus. The Chaoswar promises to be the crowning achievement in the three decades-long career of a New York Times bestselling master fantasist who rules the sword and sorcery universe along with Terry Goodkind, George R. R. Martin, and Terry Brooks.

Back cover copy

For years following the terrible Serpentwar, the Empire of Great Kesh remained peaceful, but now dark clouds of conflict gather once more. Rumors abound from the Kingdom's far western borders of spies missing, murdered, and turned. Powerful legions from the Keshian Confederacy are being mobilized, and an attack is all but certain. As his legendary ancestor Prince Arutha did, Martin conDoin, middle son of the Duke of Crydee, must defend the lands against the invaders. But Arutha commanded a mighty army. Martin has only old men and young boys.

Pug, Midkemia's most powerful magician, fears what is in the wind, for he senses an encroaching darkness whose growing power surely spells his world's end. And soon the Kingdom's enchanted defender will find himself questioning everything he's ever held true and dear . . . including the loyalty and desires of his beloved son, Magnus.
