Book 63: Krondor's Sons
I knocked out Feists Magician trilogy (or quadrology depending on your viewpoint) earlier this year. I enjoyed it, even if it was a bit dopey thematically. After immersing myself in so much dark fantasy, returning to more epic and moral fantasy felt like watching the Disney version of Game of Thrones. There was just very little to keep the book at anything more than a surface level, plot driven, vaguely intersting story. I guess it's just a bit sappy. The only part that worked was the culture clash, but even that was overdone. Still, Feist is a fast paced writer so it didn't feel like a waste. I just wish the people were more interesting.
