Finished King's Bucceneer
« on: March 23, 2005, 01:46:56 AM »

Hi All,

I've finished reading King's Bucceneer (spelling?) and am really happy to finally see Pug, elves and magic being used once again.  Though the references to elves/magic were subtle (with a lot more focus on battle) it was nevertheless a relief after the absolute fantasy drought between the the empire series and PoTB.  Too much politics and "real people" events. :elf_gloop:

Is KB (finally) a sign of magic, elves, dwarves, goblins coming back into the picture?  Please be honest.  If not, then (sadly) the Fiest books end for me here.   I relly miss the magic of Magician and only two books from other authors have ever come close.

I've posted on this topic in several other threads since I started coming here and agree with you 100%.  Read the Serpent war series because it does have some fantasy in it, not as much as the Riftwar but more then KB.  The conclave series, sadly, has next to none.

Hopefully, the darkwar series will go back to this and from what I have read, it will

Hmm.....   sounds semi-convincing :-(

Well I bought the book just then anyways (2nd hand this time) so we'll see how it goes.

I dunno why but I just miss all that jazz about Elethel, Dwarves, Goblins, Moredhels, etc.  Seems unlikely that he will ever go back to that again.  Such a shame.  Why did he create such a world to begin with?

yeah serpent war has a fair bit of tomas and pug and nakor in it so there's still magic adn you find out about entirely new races so I think you'll like it dude. and you still got teh dwarves and elves in there too, more elves than dwarves from what I can remember though I gotta re read it.......

hey,

i really enjoyed kings buccaneer, was slightly different from his usual books. i actually did my rpr on this book and got quite a good mark considering i didnt write on the usual crap. i was actually warned against it though, sci-fi/fantasy i was told was not considered an adult genre. but i ignored him and wrote it regardless. anyway, back to the question... definitely read serpentwar, you would be missing out if you didnt read it. as usual a good mix of magic, battles, politics etc. that you usually get reading feist, thoroughly entertaining.

cheers,

I would say you should read the serpentwar series it because by the end, you'll get alot of inkling into magic, the universe, nakor.

Plus there are a whole bunch of very good new characters to discover.

I personally guarantee you will be happy you kept going.

As I remember (its been a few years back) there is a lot of magic in the serpent war, a lot of explaining and understanding about the magic that Feist uses in his books! There is also some elves, you got Calis in there, he`s an half eledhel and so he will be telling and explaining some eledhel stuff!

I had the same thing after PotB and KB but was happy I bought and read the Serpentwar, coze there the action was to be found again!

Krondor (if you like Jimmy as a character it doesn`t apply) was in my opinion dissapointing, and there is one really good legend book Honored Enemy with loads about eledhel and Moredhel, must recomend it also!

In my view defiently read the Serpantwar books, they have everything you would want in a fantasy book - action, magic, lots of different races and loads more cool stuff.

If you've read A Darkness at Sethanon you have to read the Serpentwar Saga. It's a must. Whilst being a seperate series on it's own, the story involves and expands upon a major plot point introduced in Darkness at Sethanon. Especially the 3rd book, Rage of a Demon King (considered by many to be his best book, after Magician)
