Questions about the order of books.
« on: March 09, 2005, 04:57:29 PM »

Ok Hi.
if have a question that i cant seem to resolve on my own.

I have read the following feist books in this order :

Daughter of the Empire
Servant of the Empire
Mistress of the Empire
Magician
Silverthorn
A Darkness at Sethanon
Prince of the Blood
The King's Buccaneer
Shadow of a Dark Queen
Rise of a Merchant Prince
Rage of a Demon King
Shards of a Broken Crown
Krondor the Betrayal
Krondor: the Assassins
Krondor: Tear of the Gods

Now tear of the gods ends  :

Spoiler: show
With Sidi talking to the dead goddes Hilda and him saying something like "the battle is lost but the war aint"


Now i seem to remeber in one of the previous books i read that  Pug said something about a
Spoiler: show
great battle he had with the dark and powerfull magician Sidi
But according to Crydee.com the next books in the serie (Krondor: The Crawler and Krondor: The Dark Mage) have not been released yet.

So i am wondering how pug could have had that battle when the book has not been written (or just not realesed) yet. Or am i missing something ?

I kinda post this because i am quite anxious to find out what happens next.

Thanx for taking the time to read this and perhaps even answer it.
kind regards Subigo.

The reason the rest of the Krondor series hasn't come out yet is due to contract issues I do believe. I wouldn't expect to see that series finished for some time yet.  

Yes
Spoiler: show
Pug apprently does do battle with Sidi in the Krondor series at some point.
I believe this is mentioned in the Serpent War series?? I could be mistaken its been to long since Ive read the books.  The Krondor series is a relatively new series still and the other books are older. So in the Serpent war when that is mentioned about Pug, it will be written about eventually in the Krondor Series.  I hope that makes sense, Im running on little sleep right now.

I think its also in the Serpant War books, not 100 sure like Sceptre. The Serpant war books were released before the Krondor books, but is set in a time frame after the Krondor books. thats how people can refer to events that have not been writtern yet but would take place in the final 1 or 2 Krondor books.

If it wasn't Sidi he sensed out there, it was another like him, and either possibility left Pug feeling dread and fear."

Well to my knowledge, they might not be finished or released (which sucks) but i heard on here that he was thinking about making both ofthose books into a whole one, but im sure thats just a romour and not fact. Time will tell though my friend.

Well I think it sucks that we don't get to see these krondor books, all because of copyright problems...

Maybe we can convince Ray to convert them to e-book, and let someone hack his pc.  So we can all have them...
Sounds  maybe stupid, but we'd have the books wouldn't we...
The only problem is that He doesn't receive any money

Well no good getting them converted to ebook as you would have a blank document, as the last books in the Krondor series have not been writtern.

« Reply #10 on: March 21, 2005, 10:29:51 AM »

Seeing the order that Subigo read the books in, i thought i'd propose the question of what your recommended order of reading would be?

In my post in the pinned thread, i listed the books as near as i could to when the books took place.. (hence the short stories and legends books being mixed in with a split magician) but that's not necessarily the order i would recommend.

My recommended reading order would be:

Empire Trilogy
Riftwar Saga
Short Stories
Legends of the Riftwar
Riftwar Legacy
Prince of the Blood
King's Buccaneer
Serpentwar Saga
Conclave of Shadows


My reasoning for reading the Empire Trilogy first is that it introduces you to the Tsurani culture. That way, when you read Magician, you don't just view them as "the enemy" as i did my first time through the book.

The rest of my order is pretty self-explanatory, though I'd recommend reading the short story The Messenger directly before reading Murder in LaMut.


So. What order would you recommend (or do you prefer reading) the books?

I'll go along with that Alrin. Although Magician should be the first for everyone IMO. Plus, not many people (myself included) were too impressed with the Empire Trilogy.

I loved the Empire trilogy. i read it after the Riftwar Saga but i thought it was a good order to read them in.

You must remember that much of the Krondor stories between the Riftwar and Prince of hte blood are spun out of the Games (Betrayal at Krondor and Return to Krondor) THat is Krondor: The Betrayal, Krondor: The Assassins, and Tear of the Gods. I believe he is also writing about The Crawler. THese are all stories that have been mapped in the games, but he had to put them to paper. He has said that it is very difficult to put a game into book form, that is why it is taking so many books.
