  1. The King has no male children, so it looks like one of his twin nephews, Borric and Erland has to take the crown after his death The twins are typical spoiled brats, so their father Prince Arutha of Krondor sends them as ambassadors to Kesh the old and mysterious nation think ancient China along with James aka Jimmy the Hand , Locklear, and some other familiar characters The ambassadors stumble onto a conspiracy, and it is up to the wonder boys Borric and Erland to save the day.What do you get i [...]

  2. I am one of the few who had not read a Feist before this This is the 2004 Author s Edition, rewritten a tad Taken on its own, this is a fairly standard entry in the swords horses inns serving stew genre Plus 1 for the bad guys not being the mustache twirling all evil cardboard characters they often are Plus 1 for not having the equivalent of orcs plodding infantry that are there to be slaughtered by our heroes Plus 1 for Nakor, who made me think of Master Li from Barry Hughart s magnificent fant [...]

  3. The makers of Seinfeld had a motto No hugs, no learning It s one of the things I like, for example, about dark fantasy a la Joe Abercrombie Feist puts himself to the other end of the spectrum A pair of royal twins get sent to a foreign land for a light diplomatic mission, and for some seasoning There are assassination attempts, sales into slavery, some betrayals, a lot of good old fashioned male fantasy sex, and, in the end, lots of hugs and lots of learning I enjoyed it, though I found it most [...]

  4. As you know, I have many weaknesses I ve listed them several times Once I ll say I am weak for devil may care princes A spoiled prince who learns a few lessons on his journey is a tried and true trope, and I m a total sucker for it I thought I hit the jackpot with twin princes I thought I was going to experience a rich fantasy court setting Feist is, depending on your social circles, considered one of the granddad s of fantasy, after all What I got instead was surprisingly lackluster.Borric and [...]

  5. Mr Feist is one of the old guard , in my opinion, as far as fantasy authors are concerned He is also, in my opinion, one of the endearing of these I loved Magician and it s sequels, especially A Darkness at Sethanon These novels established the setting and feel of the Riftwar canon Prince of the Blood is the next in this canon, following A Darkness At Sethanon It s a stand alone work, but it does have a place in the series and readers will recognise quite a few characters from the earlier novel [...]

  6. You will notice that this book has a different style from the epics that Feist has produced e.g the Riftwar Saga This one is meant for a lighter read, as evident in the humor and sometimes not so serious portions evident in the book Surprisingly, it turned out to be rather fitting given the 2 protagonists Erland and Boric, the twin sons of Prince Arutha of the Riftwar fan The two are as you would expect of powerful and rich, yet well meaning, nobles I don t usually like such characters, but thes [...]

  8. With Prince of the Blood, Feist takes a rather firm step away from epic warfare, elves, wizards and the like, and instead tells a tale of treachery, plots to destroy an empire and the clash of cultures It s something new for Feist, and a rather large step away from the fantasy genre, so it s only the question if he can pull it of The answer is yes, despite some character flaws and minor plot issues.The main protagonists in this less fantasy like story than the other novels in the Riftwar Series, [...]

  9. En het boek is uit Heerlijk verhaal, heerlijke humor In feite zit in dit boek meer humor dan in de vorige boeken De plot is ietsje minder geloofwaardig Ik geloof bijvoorbeeld nooit dat ze view spoiler Borricks lijk zouden hebben laten liggen om niet te laat te komen bij de keizerin Alles wees erop dat die keizerin ook geen oorlog wilde en het lijkt me dat een kroonprins toch iets te belangrijk is om niet zeker te weten dat hij dood is voor je verder gaat, al heeft hij tien tweelingbroers Ze hiel [...]

  10. For me this was the series that got me hooked on reading I had an English teacher in high school that would let us write 2 book reports per quarter which got you a C over all in the class So all I did for a year was read in class, write the reports and take the test blind Got an A I tore through this series and have been reading since.Feist is an amazing story teller and his world of Midkemia sets the stage for some really crazy and beloved characters Of all the series I have read I think back o [...]

  11. This one is a pretty amusing send up on the spoiled royals go into the world and learn a thing or three about humility and noblesse oblige It s amusing because Feist writes well, if a bit pedantically It s amusing because Hey Jimmy the Hand I missed this guy Locklear too, good to see you The twins are going to figure it out, because this is high heroic fantasy, and all Feist s good guys get it figured out one way or another They are really punks to begin, so the transformation is very feel good [...]

  12. I preferred this book to the previous Feist I read but still felt that it was quite slow and took a while to engage my interest This may have because of the change in characters I was still interested in Jimmy and Locky than the two princes I am also finding it a bit confusing as to the best order in which I should read these books Most of the lists I have found on line suggest reading this after the original magician trilogy but several events were mentioned which made me feel that I had misse [...]

  13. Oh, I loved this book While I didn t remember all of the details of the plot, from reading it a long time ago, once again, it was Feist s wonderfully entertaining characters that stayed with me Nakor and his oranges, in particular I had a lot of fun re reading this book and while Kesh has a lot of similarities to the Tsurani, there were unique enough characteristics to make this lush world detailed A great deal of fun to read, this is definitely one of the highlights of the series.

  14. While this book was by no means one of Feist s bests, I sincerely enjoyed it because it revisited Midkemia 20 years after the Riftwar ended I always enjoy revisiting worlds and characters that I loved, and among my favorite fictional characters ever are Jimmy the Hand, Arutha conDoin and Pug the Magician This books revisits all of them, as well as new and interesting characters.

  15. Welcome back to the Midkemia reread This week it s time to take a look at Prince of the Blood, the first of two stand alone novels, which Feist wrote after finishing the Riftwar Saga In my memory of it Prince of the Blood was one of my favourite books in the entire Riftwar Cycle, as I loved the intrigue and adventure of the story And while I still massively enjoyed Prince of the Blood, held to today s standards there are some serious problems in its portrayal of the Keshian royal ladies So even [...]

  16. This stood up to the the test of time better than I thought, even though I generally don t like reading fantasies about teenage boys as the main protagonists It has been so long since I read this last that I couldn t remember who was the guilty party in the conspiracy It was as if I was reading it for the first time I do like political intrigue, but after reading books where it is complex and layered ie Game of Thrones , this book s intrigue is pretty simplistic I admit being surprised at a majo [...]

  17. Twenty years after the Riftwar see Magician, Silverthorn, and A Darkness at Sethanon , the 19 year old twin sons of Prince Arutha are a couple of trouble making scamps They certainly don t have the maturity to rule over the Kingdom of the Isles in the world of Midkemia And now that Arutha has declared his intention to renounce his claim to the throne, should he outlive his brother King Lyam, Borric and Erland are first and second in the line of royal succession It s a pretty pickle So, Arutha se [...]

  18. Feist is a fun new find for me The fantasy was compelling The reader of the audio Version was a delight to listen too I m going to read Feist I hope you discover or rediscover his work.

  19. This Author s Preferred Edition of Raymond E Feist s bestselling coming of age saga celebrates the fifteenth anniversary of its publication Feist introduces a new generation of readers to his riveting novel of adventure and intrigue, revised and updated as he always meant it to be written It is a work that explores strength and weakness, hope and fear, and what it means to be a man in a kingdom where peace is the most precious commodity of all.If there were two impetuous and carefree men in the [...]

  20. Depois de ler os quatro livros de O Mago , tinha de ler O Pr ncipe Herdeiro , uma vez que gostei muito da primeira serie, especialmente dos ltimos dois, nomeadamente de algumas personagens que aparecem nesses dois volumes, em especial o Jimmy ou James Como ele faz parte destes novos livros, bem como Arutha e a sua fam lia que eu tamb m gosto bastante ,achei que fazia todo o sentido eu ler estas aventuras dos filhos de Pr ncipe Arutha Gostei da hist ria diferente da d O Mago, e ainda bem porque n [...]

  21. While somewhat of a side story to the main sequence of Feist s Midkemia based books, PRINCE OF THE BLOOD is nonetheless a great book, full of all the things that keep readers coming back to Feist time and again Great characters lead the list, but this book also has an intriguing plot, lots of action, and a wonderful and new setting to explore The book picks up 20 years after the close of A Darkness at Sethanon, with Arutha s twin sons, Borric and Erland, having grown into typical adventure seeki [...]

  22. Apesar de se poder ler este livro sem ler primeiro os quatro livros que comp em a saga O Mago , a verdade que se desfruta melhor O pr ncipe herdeiro se for lido na sequ ncia dos anteriores.No livro em apre o reencontramos algumas das personagens mais emblem ticas do Mago Arutha, Anita, Jimmy, Pug e Gamina E tamb m algumas novas personagens, nomeadamente os dois g meos que d o o nome ao livro, os herdeiros coroa de Kondor, os g meos Borric e Erland e que, para al m de herdeiros coroa, s o uma das [...]

  23. Wholly cow That synopsis is long I love that I got to read about Arutha and Anita s kids The twins are very different but very similar to their father and mentors I really enjoyed their character development They started out as spoiled royal brats, but their trials and journey turned them into men Seeing James and Locklear as adults was fun They turned out just as I knew they would I wish Jimmy the Hand still got to spy and do thief stuff, but I suppose he has his duties now It was fun to see Ja [...]

  24. The Riftwar Saga Magician, Silverthorn, A Darkness at Sethanon are some of my favorite books of all time, and made me love fantasy novels They made me want to read of Raymond E Feist s works, and thus I read Prince of the Blood This book is a side story that takes place after the Riftwar Saga and it follows Arutha s eldest sons Borric and Erland after they are sent into the Keshian Empire on a diplomatic mission They end up getting drawn into a dangerous situation and a story of court intrigue, [...]

  25. The first in the small series Krondor s Sons and the first written after the emphatic Riftwar Saga, Prince of the Blood was, put simply, awesome.Borric and Erland begin as selfish brats, but of course, like all 19 year olds, they just require a bit of tenderising Which they most certainly get.Set on the back drop of The Empire of Kesh and their brutal and debilitating politics, Borric and Erland must represent their father my bae, Arutha at the 75th Jubilee of the Empress of Kesh The boys discov [...]

  26. It s been a couple years since I ve reread this book, since when I do a Feist reread I usually get stranded post Sethanon, but it was as nice as I remembered it The princes are exactly the right balance of annoyingly spoiled and amusingly charming that you end up liking them than disliking them It s also gratifying to see them mature as the book continues I enjoyed spending time with Jimmy and Locky and the new characters were delightful Ghuda Bule 3 and I already know Nakor is sticking around [...]

  27. Another excellent adventure in Midkemia This one takes place 20 years after the events of the last book and focuses on Arutha s twin sons, Borric and Erland They re sent as ambassadors to Kesh to teach them to be men and how to rule, a fate they never expected to inherit As usual, things do not go to plan This one doesn t have the big battles of the last series, instead we get a glimpse into the politics of the Kingdom and Empire where the danger is subtle, but just as deadly The characters are [...]

  28. It started out as just good I liked the characters in the Riftwar Saga so it was nice to revisit them, but as you got into the story the speed picked up and the story got really good Borric s storyline was my favorite and I enjoyed the characters that joined him At first I thought re introducing Gamina was a bit lame, but she helped explain the story, so I can see why she was included in the story I am reading the books in the recommended order ie by published date , but I have to admit that at [...]
