"Meh i've read better."
3 stars"

It didn't live up to it's hype. I had high expectations because this book was highly recomended and so I was expecting something magnificent. The story felt rushed and I was expecting some twists or surprises but I never got them. I read magician after reading the “a song of ice & fire*” series so I was hoping for something similar. It was enjoyable but not what I was expecting.

Raymond E. Feist's classic fantasy epic, Magician, has enchanted readers for over twenty years. The revised edition was prepared to celebrate the tenth anniversary of its publication, and incorporates over 15,000 words of text omitted from previous editions. At Crydee, a frontier outpost in the tranquil Kingdom of the Isles, an orphan boy, Pug, is apprenticed to a master magician -- and the destinies of two worlds are changed forever. Suddenly the peace of the Kingdom is destroyed as mysterious alien invaders swarm the land. Pug is swept up into the conflict but for him and his warrior friend, Tomas, an odyssey into the unknown has only just begun. Tomas will inherit a legacy of savage power from an ancient civilization. Pug's destiny is to lead him through a rift in the fabric of space and time to the mastery of the unimaginable powers of a strange new magic.


Shortlisted for BBC Big Read Top 100 2003.
