Rage of a Demon King by Raymond E. Feist
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book really ends with a bang. The first half continues to build the preparations for the big war to come, fulfilling the promise of the first two books in the Serpentwar Saga, but it really goes above and beyond after ALL the great heroes and magicians band together to figure out what the hell is going on.
Gods. Lots of great worldbuilding happens here. :) Gaimanesque, elemental, and very cool.
I admit I've missed seeing so much of Pug and he takes a big role here. Thomas, too. And all the oddball magicians we've grown to love. But the tragedy is real, too. Pug loses the most. He also gains a lot in the end.
What can you expect in this novel aside from the magics?
Oh, just a nasty war and the destruction of Krondor. It has everything you lovers of mayhem might want. The stakes are the death of universes and the defeat a mad god, after all. All hands on deck! Expect a lot of deaths. Expected and unexpected.
Quite good. Quite enjoyable. Enjoyed this more than the last two. :)
