Prince Of The Blood
« on: August 07, 2004, 04:20:10 AM »

I've read the new APE of POTB.  Besides some mention of events from the Legacy series I didnt really notice much difference.  Mind that I hadnt read it since it first came out in 1989, but I really didnt see that big of a difference.  Those hoping for a better written portion on the Locklear situation will be disappointed.

Meanwhile I continue on my quest to re-read all the Midkemia books before Exile's Return comes out on September 6th.  I'm almost done with SOADQ.  Its going to be close.

I'm also putting together a timeline of events while I'm reading the novels.  At the beginning of SOADQ, 68 years has allapsed since the beginning of Magician:Apprentice.  That would make Pug and Tomas 81 years old.

Don't go too quick and miss out on too much of the information, Tomas. Make your deadline and enjoy the books at the same time. I was planning to do the same thing as you are, but I got lazy... :P

I finished the book a few weeks ago and found there were new references to Riftwar Legacy books and Jimmy the Hand book, Plus more action at the end of the book in the Empresses court. Other than that there was maybe the odd paragraph here and there, but not much at all different in my view. If you have the money and want to read it then buy the book, but I don't think its an essential purchase like the APE of Magician was.
