Honored Enemy (Legends of the Riftwar, #1)Honored Enemy by Raymond E. Feist
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a pleasant surprise!

I kinda expected some old side stories placed at the end of the original Riftwar taking place on the outskirts in the cold north, but not a REALLY GOOD novel about enemies banding together to survive against an implacable foe alien to both.

The tale itself is pretty simple in outline but really told well in detail. The nitty gritty is what this is all about, keeping their men alive at all costs, the dangers and distrust, the cultural exchanges, the growing trust, and of course, the knowledge that they would eventually have to square off and kill each other... eventually. :)

As a novel that really affected me, this kinda did the job better than most of Feist's other novels. :) Odd, right? The big action and the epic awesomeness is missing here, instead focusing on a deep tale of friendship in adversity. :) Totally recommend.
