Love this book, been waiting a long time, and it was worth the wait. I can not wait for the rest of the books in the cycle

Centering more on Arutha and his clandestine mission, to a degree, Silverthorn departs from Pug. It does not hurt for this, but helps to continue Feist's progression of opening a larger story to his audience.
At the outset of this series, I considered him to be slightly deficient, but Nicholas Guy Smith has developed into a solid narrator. While he doesn't possess a wide range of unique voices, in this third entry into the Riftwar Saga he shows himself more than capable of a compelling reading.
In many series, the penultimate book lacks a satisfying resolution. Not so with Silverthorn. It is, however, within this conclusion that it suffers. It completes the tale, but it feels as though it was wrapped hastily and without the time and consideration that the rest of the novel exudes. Minor events seem illogical and the number of pages given are few (perhaps more of an editing decision).
Again, the deficiencies here really are insignificant enough to reduce it to 4 stars. This is a well-written tale with characters we're growing to enjoy, love, and even respect.
