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.

Rides a Dread Legion

A marvellous example of Raymond E Feist's fantasy story craft. The many disparate characters are seamlessly interwoven into a story that keeps you literally spellbound. Having read most of Feist's earlier works this is up there with the best. Throughout the novel there are tantalising references to previous adventures. It's a shame they aren't yet available to listen to. Can't wait to experience these past favourites if and when they become available on audible.

Proffesionally narrated, epic fantasy story.

This was the first audibook of Feist I have listened too. As with the paperback versions I was spellbound. Fantastic narration for a fantastic storyline. Looking foward to more of Feist's work on Audible.

great story, good performance.

The story as usual is well paced and enjoyable to the end.

I personally don't think the voices of some of the characters are portrayed well, especially that of Thomas. and the pronunciation of some words borders on rediculous.

Different Worlds and Emotions!

If you could sum up Rides a Dread Legion in three words, what would they be?

Foreboding, Epic and Confronting.., I'd chuck in unexpected too!

What did you like best about this story?

The delivery and the reconnection with familiar characters and some new ones :)

What does Peter Joyce bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

A personality for each of the Characters that only enhanced my experience and guided my imagination.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes - this is a book that makes you feel hope, fear, excitement and a deep sadness.
