Publisher's Summary

Set 20 years after the events of the Riftwar, Prince of the Blood follows the adventures of Prince Arutha's sons in the dangerously unstable Great Empire of Kesh. Twenty years have passed since the end of the Riftwar. Prince Borric con Doin and his twin brother Erland have been summoned back to their father's court in Krondor. Prince Arutha has decided he needs to tame his spirited progeny and teach them statecraft and responsibility.
Shortly after they arrive home, therefore, he orders them to Kesh, to represent the Isles at the Empress' 75th jubilee. But before the new ambassadors depart, they are attacked. The foiled assassin's suicide reawakens fears that the Nighthawks - a brotherhood of killers for hire - are active once more. But the truth is far more disturbing: The assassin was a member of the Royal House of Kesh….
Despite the dangers, Borric and Erland's mission continues, it being vital to sustaining the fragile peace between the two nations. But the brothers have little idea of the exotic world of Kesh, the strange players at this alien court, nor the hidden forces intent upon tearing the empire apart.

Almost perfect

Another great story by Feist. Not as 'epic' as his previous novels it nonetheless has the strong, constantly evolving characters that I have come to love within Feists writings.
The narrator again annoys me with the pronunciation of some names and words but does a very good job of differentiating characters.

shorter but still fantastic

at around half the length of most of his previous books this one still manages to feel like a grand saga. it also introduces probably my favourite character from the series "nakkor the blue rider" :p. well worth the time to listen to /read
