Publisher's Summary

A lost race of elves, the taredhel or 'people of the stars', have found a way across the universe to reach Midkemia. On their current home world, these elves are hard pressed by a ravaging demon horde, and what was once a huge empire has been reduced to a handful of survivors. The cornerstone of taredhel lore is the tale of their lost origins in the world they call simply 'Home', a place lost in the mists of time. Now they are convinced that Midkemia is that place, and they are coming to reclaim it. Ruthless and arrogant, the taredhel intend to let nothing stand in their way; but before long, Pug and the Conclave realise that it's not necessarily the elves, but the demon horde pursuing them where the true danger lies. And hanging over Pug always is the prophecy that he will be doomed to watch everyone he loves die before him...

This book is very disappointing. I am a long term fan of Raymond Feist's books and I have read all the books he has ever written, many of them multiple times. Unfortunately, I think he has finally run out of ideas and he is now recycling old ones unashamedly. There is nothing new in this book, and every section leaves you with a feeling of de ja vous. Far too much time is spent on scene setting, and there is far too little action. The characters are not particularly engaging and I felt myself on the verge of giving up listening multiple times. To make things worse, the narrator is quite unsuitable. His performance oozes pomposity, and I felt that the accents he uses for different characters often felt quite inappropriate. I bought this book as soon as it became available, with a great feeling of excitement - but I won't be so trusting in future.

Good book, average narration.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book itself, but the narrator's voices for the characters were inconsistent and unconvincing. At some points, it became difficult to tell who the narrator was trying to vocalize, the voices were often that similar and interchangeable. Also annoying was the narrators tendency to have the characters *sigh* constantly.

In all, I'd recommend reading this book instead of listening to it - its a good story, but unfortunately the narrator isn't quite up to scratch this time. Four stars for the book, Two for the narration.
