Publisher's Summary

The penultimate volume of the mighty Riftwar Cycle. War rages in Midkemia but behind the chaos there is disquieting evidence of dark forces at work. Jim Dasher’s usually infallible intelligence network has been cleverly dismantled; nowhere is safe. He feels that the world is coming apart at the seams and is helpless to protect his nation.
Quiet palace coups are underway in Roldem and Rillanon; and King Gregory of the Isles has yet to produce an heir. In each kingdom a single petty noble has risen from obscurity to threaten the throne.Lord Hal of Crydee and his great friend Ty Hawkins, champion swordsman of the Masters’ Court, are entrusted with the task of smuggling Princess Stephané and her lady-in-waiting, the lovely but mysterious Lady Gabriella, out of Roldem to a place of greater safety. But is there any safe haven to be found?
Meanwhile, Hal’s younger brothers Martin and Brendan are attempting to hold the strategic city of Ylith against an onslaught of Keshian Dog Soldiers, and a mysterious force from beneath the sea. The Kingdom might lose Crydee and recover; but if Ylith falls, all is lost.An unknown player appears to orchestrating these conflicts. Can Pug and the Conclave of Shadows track down this source before Midkemia is destroyed?

wow, I thought because I skipped a few ...

my mistake, this is part of the series, also works as a stand alone.
I was enthralled, love when there is so much intrigue that you have to read just one more sentence. ....

A great book, ruined by the narrator.

Great book by Feist as always, but dreadful narration. The guy needs to learn how read clearly and consistently. Sometimes staccato, other times in a sine-wave of speed, other so fast it's difficult to know when a breath would be taken. Also he needs to learn how to pronounce certain words, as he's clearly guessing. Loved the book, hated tge narration.
