I just started Prince of the Blood, book 1 of Raymond E. Feist's Krondor’s Sons Series (part of his Riftwar Cycle).
A giant of Fantasy, I thought it high time I gave Feist a try – albeit in a manner that was not committing to his proportionally large Riftwar Cycle. Hence I now enter the Kingdom of the Isles, a realm blessed by peace yet threatened by the Empire of Great Kesh in the south and two young heirs for whom responsibility is just a word. Threats which now appear to be on a collision course. Oh, and did I mention assassins and the game of intrigue?
