I admit to my shame I had not read this book (and I call myself a Feist fan). When I was in brisbane Camd was kind enough to give me an old copy of the book so I could finally read it.
Well I am VERY pleased I finally read it as it was an excellent read, I did not know what to expect when I started the book but by the end I felt silly not to have read the book sooner. I am pleased to see Ray can write a different stlye of book, though I could still tell he had wrote the book as he used his usual writing style.
I believe this would be the easiest book of Rays to transform into a movie, firstly its standalone and could be told in a 2 hour film. Also the budget would not need to be too high to get a good quality film.
I highly recommend this book to all Feist fans who have not read the story, it took me 3 days to read the first 150 pages but half a day for the final 200 as it was very gripping.
