Long recovered from the ravages of the Riftwar, the land and people of the kingdom of the Isles thrive. Nicholas, the youngest son of Prince Arutha, is intelligent and gifted but vastly inexperienced. In hopes of hardening him, his father sends him and his irreverent squire, Harry, to live at Rustic Castle Crydee to learn of life beyond the halls of privilege. But within weeks of Nicholas and Harry's arrival, Crydee is viciously attacked by unknown assailants, resulting in murder, massive destruction, and the abduction of two young noblewomen. The raiders have come from a pirate haven and are no ordinary foe ... but an enemy connected to dark magical forces that threaten the lands Nicholas will someday rule -- if he survives.… (mehr)

Another fun read from Feist. It started out a bit too YA for me, but then I got I latched on to the characters, and Feist writes them well.

The youngest Prince of Kondor is sent to his uncle's Dutchy to experience life away from Court, where things will not be so easy on him. Chaos ensues when the Dutchy is attacked by unknowns, and Prince Nicholas' cousin is kidnapped. Nicky and his Squire Harry set off with Admiral Amos across the great Seas to the other side of the world. Lots of action and a few new characters. Ticking off another series in the Feist Catalog.

Easy to listen to with interesting characters. The king's nephew sails to the rescue. ( )

I really hope Nicky shows up a lot in the books after this. He's quite possibly my favorite of all the characters. ( )

This one is a surprisingly complicated plot with one of my new favorite characters in Feist-land. :)

Nicholas is forced to do a lot of growing, of course, but what's surprising is just how comprehensive the tragedy is compared to his reactions.

Simple puppy love evolves into survival, ideology, and duty. But the scope and the scale quickly flies beyond the initial and we travel across the world, new lands to explore or be horrified by, and above all, far-ranging effects.

This is definitely not the simple fantasy tale that I was expecting. :) And moreover, it is entertaining. It's also somewhat hard to stomach in some circumstances... after all, being captured by slavers and forced to endure some really bad things isn't meant to be easy.

All said, I really loved this book. Feist seems to have his finger on my pulse. :) ( )

The King’s Buccaneer is the second and final book in the 3rd published subseries of Raymond E. Feist’s Riftwar Cycle. The story stands alone from the first book and takes place 9 years later. It has different main characters and a separate story, although we see some returning secondary characters. In some ways, this is more of a sequel to the first series than anything, but I guess this is an ongoing plot thread that we'll see throughout the various subseries.

The previous book focused on the twin sons of Prince Arutha. This book focuses on his third and youngest son who is sent off on what is supposed to be a simple journey to visit family and gain some experience, but of course he gets caught up in unexpected and dangerous events. The familiar and beloved characters from previous books are mostly absent, but we do see a few: We see a tiny bit of Arutha in the beginning and even less at the end. Jimmy doesn’t show up at all, although I think he’s mentioned once or twice. Pug does get some page time here and there. Borric and Erland, the twins from the previous book, barely make an appearance although some events from their book are referenced. Amos does play a good-sized role, so it was good to see him again. Martin shows up a bit also. Ghuda and Nakor, secondary characters from the previous book, play similarly prominent roles in this book.

This book was published around the same time as the final book in the Empire trilogy that he co-wrote with Janny Wurts. I may be reading too much into that timing, but it seems to me like he learned some things from that collaboration experience. He did allude to that a bit in his notes at the end of the book, although without any specifics. This is the first of his solo books in this series in which I thought he wrote some good female characters. They aren’t as prominent as his male characters, and that’s fine, but some of them had more strength of character and were more interesting to read about instead of only existing to support or spur the actions of the men. On the other hand, Abigail was annoying as heck. I feel sorry for Marcus for ending up with her and I hope he comes to his senses soon. This book is also less insta-lovey. There was some insta-attraction, but I’m perfectly fine with that and consider that realistic. Happily, he didn’t spend a ton of time dwelling on the relationships as they developed, but at least there was some actual sense of development happening in the background as the story progressed.

I liked the story, but for some reason it didn’t always hold my interest well. My interest came and went, and I really don’t know why. I liked the main characters, but I didn’t feel as much investment in them as I did for the main characters in previous books. There were still plenty of exciting parts and funny parts and other great moments, though. ( )
