9780380978007: Krondor: Tear of the Gods: Book Three of the Riftwar Legacy

Return now to a kingdom in constant peril; a land magical, scarred, and wondrous, where great heroes rise up from adversity to battle fearsome enemies who covet the riches within its borders. New York Times bestselling author Raymond E. Feist -- one of the world 's preeminent fantasists -- continues his extraordinary Riftwar Legacy with a sweeping tale of conflict, trial, and grim necessity, as the forces of good join together to staunch the golden lifeblood flowing from the pierced heart of Midkemia.

The vile sorcerer Sidi plans to strike the kingdom a fatal blow, setting his creature, the murderous pirate Bear, upon the high seas in pursuit of the vessel that is transporting Midkemia's most holy object: the Tear of the Gods. It is from this miraculous stone that all magic power is believed to flow. And if the Tear becomes the mage's trinket, the future will hold naught but terror, death, and unending night.

For Squire James, Lieutenant William, and the able magician Jazhara, the race is on to rescue the remarkable artifact from the bloodthirsty, unpredictable Bear and his despicable master who would use it to bring catastrophe down upon the world. But it will take greater-than-human swiftness. cunning, courage, and skill for the three to prevail. And the flight of her most peerless defenders will leave Krondor more vulnerable than ever to the terrible ambitions of the depraved.

For the mysterious criminal known as the Crawler is preparing to wreak bloody havoc to fulfill his dastardly secret agenda. Once again the sewers of Krondor teem with assassins and monsters as the hour of destiny nears. The fate of an imperiled world is in flux, as all manner of dark creatures are gathered for one unspeakable purpose: to breed the chaos that will hasten the destruction of Squire James and his brave companions...and bring about the total corruption of the Tear of the Gods.

About the Author:

Raymond E. Feist is the multiple New York Times bestselling author or coauthor of thirty previous books—all but one of which are Riftwar Cycle novels. He lives in San Diego.

From Publishers Weekly:

Book Three of the Riftwar Legacy gets off to a fast start, as pirates attack the ship Ishap's Dawn in order to steal the Tear of the Gods, a sacred magical gem being transported in the ship's hold. Bestseller Feist's latest action-adventure fantasy focuses on renewed trouble in Krondor, ruled by Prince Arutha, who's assisted by his loyal squires, William and James, and the new court mage, a Keshian sorceress named Jazhara. News of the Tear's disappearance comes on the heels of a seeming jailbreak, the destruction of the city's orphanage and the razing of a tavern connected with the Mockers, the city's official thieves guild. All seem linked to Bear, a crazed former pirate bent on recovering the Tear for himself and getting revenge on the partner who left him to drown in the wreck of Ishap's Dawn. Meanwhile Arutha's nemesis, the Crawler, is once again at work seeding the land with unrest and fear. James and Jazhara lead the investigation, moving from Krondor's sewers to the bleak cliffs of distant Haldon Head, overlooking the place where the Tear was lost and more than one ship has met its end. There they face an ancient evil with plans of its own for the Tear, and more than enough power to accomplish its desires. The latest chapter in the Krondor saga is sure to please Feist fans and win new ones among readers who crave Dungeons and Dragons-style fantasy adventure. Agent, Jonathan Matson. (Mar. 10) Forecast: As the creator of the computer games Return to Krondor and Betrayal at Krondor and winner of Computer magazine's Best Game of the Year Award, Feist will bring out the gaming crowd in addition to his already huge fan base on his 10-city author tour for this novel; expect hefty sales.
