Raymond E. Feist
|Write generic fantasy novels, that are based on a world developed
along fantasy RPG lines. Ray spent a good deal of time developing the
world, Midkemia, which results in a world with a strong identity, that seems
quite realistic for a fantasy world. As a writer, I would say his plot are very well planned, with three
dimensional characters with real reactions, and feelings. None of his books are
ever bad and are always worth buying.|
He can be found on Compuserve's SFLIT forum.
- Set in the fantasy world of Midkemia. This is fantasy at its best. Ray introduces a brilliantly constructed fantasy world that has interesting characters, that interact smoothly. A strong story that unfolds at a good pace, while increasing in depth with every volume.
Prince of the Blood- While this is not a bad book, it lacks a strong plot. It does serve to introduce a new generation of characters and provides an update of what happened after the Riftware Trilogy.
The Kings Bucaneer- Better than Prince of the Blood, it is a prelude to the Serpentwar Trilogy. I liked the young prince Nicky, and found it interesting to watch him come to terms with his responsibilities.
- Returns to the fantasy world of Medkemia. The old enemy returns from beyond destruction in the Riftwar Trilogy. Excellent follow-up to the Riftwar series.
