Books 24 through 27: The Riftwar Saga
The Magician has been sitting on my table for getting near a year, but I've been daunted by it's sheer size. I finally crack it open, and wonder of wonders, I love it! Feist's world(s)building is almost unparalleled and his story telling is spectacular. His prose can be clunky at times and the "mysteries" are obvious and the endings are predictable, but he takes us on such a special journey getting to these places that it doesn't matter. The difficulties I had centered on the almost dopey characters that were fairly central as well as just too many easy outs. But overall, the ride was just awesome.
