Here's where Raymond E. Feist differentiated from standard "boy saves the world" formula & went for more complexity & more mature themes. Jimmy the Hand started to become a steal stealer. It was pleasure to read when I was a teenager compared to grinding Tolkien which I avoided.

Starting with Magician, this is one of the best series within the fields of fantasy. Makes Tolkien look like a grandad pushing his trolley down the grocery aisle while babbling on about his incontinence.

Mar 01, 2010

Silverthorn is the astonishing sequel to Magician - and an even more stirring tale of the imagination. Once again the magical worlds of Midkemia and Kelewan come alive, peopled with princes, kings, squires - and warriors

In Silverthorn a new evil power that raises the dead and makes corpses do battle with the living threatens the new king of Midkemia. And a life-or-death quest is undertaken for an antidote to a poison that fells a beautiful princess on her wedding day. Silverthorn is a stirring tale of magic, chivalry and romance. It is a worthy successor to Magician - and an exciting prelude to the final volume in the Riftwar Saga, Darkness at Sethanon
