A sweeping new epic fantasy series from worldwide bestselling author Raymond E Feist, marking the 20th year since the first publication of his first novel, Magician. Featuring one of the most fascinating characters and scenarios ever created in the genre, The Conclave of Shadows promises to become one of the great all-time classics in the field. Among the Orosini tribe, every boy must undergo the traditional manhood ritual in order to understand his place in the universe and discover his manhood name. Kielianapuna must survive on the remote mountain peak of Shatana Higo until the gods grant him his vision. But Kieli has already waited for four days and nights, and now he is cold, lonely, despairing, and very, very tired When he is woken by the terrifying sensation of sharp claws piercing his skin and finds a rare silver hawk upon his arm, it is such a disorientating moment that he is not sure whether it has even happened, or whether it was a vision. Returning to his home, nameless and still a child, Kieli stumbles upon devastation. His village is being burned, his people slaughtered. Although it means certain death, Kieli throws himself into the battle Against all the odds, he survives, alone of all the Orosini, who have been cut down where they stand: every last man, woman and child. A distant voice echoes in his mind: Rise up and be a talon for your people The visitation of the bird on Shatana Higo was indeed his naming vision. He is a boy called Kielianapuna no more. Now he is Talon of the Silver Hawk, a man who must avenge the murder of his people, whatever that may take… (mere)

I forgot how much I enjoyed the Conclave series! ( )
  BooksForDinner | May 24, 2024 |
Its almost 30 years since I can remember sitting up half of the night reading Magician.
I enjoyed Siverthorn & A Darkness at Sethanon.
But probably the Empire books with Janny Wurts are the ones I enjoyed the most.
Maybe 20 years ago I read the Serpentwar Saga. I can't remember too much about it anymore and was getting bored towards the end.

This book starts generations later. Refers to a few historical figures I vaguely remember and is the perfect place for my re-entry into the world of Midkemia.

I found this book quite enjoyable. Easy to read, but a fair touch below my recently read Rigante series by David Gemmell. I'll finish this trilogy at least and hopefully will be engaged enough to continue into the follow-up series.
If it's really good, it might entice me back into a re-read of the earlier series.

But so many other books out there to read.... ( )

Long story short, this book is basically a training montage with a battle at the end. It did not inspire me to pick up the rest of the series. ( )

Heroes Journey. Traditional.

That being said, I honestly had a good time following this future era, post-Krondor war building of a hero. Young/old Pug is here, briefly, but for the most part, this is not of magic, but the crafting of one quick boy into a hell of a weapon.

Simple premise, really, and one we've all seen, but I really enjoyed the journey. The last of his tribe, he's taken in by the Conclave of Shadows, full of magicians and spies, trained and inducted in their order, and is sent out into the world to infiltrate and get everyone ready for the evil that spreads through the land.

This is Feist at his most crafty. The story might be old but it is still very entertaining. Lots of sword-play, some intrigue, and even more REVENGE. :) In other words, all the things we usually turn to when it comes to old-style fantasy. I've read much worse and only a few that do this better. But all-in-all? I can definitely recommend this for sheer entertainment value if not world-building, epic-building, or mind-blowing reveals.

Talon of the Silver Hawk is the first book in Conclave of Shadows, yet another subseries in the very long Riftwar Cycle by Raymond E. Feist. After the previous 7 books which had returned to some earlier time periods in the series, this book resumes our forward chronological progress and is set about 30 years after the Serpentwar Saga.

This was a solid, entertaining read. It mostly focused on brand new characters and less familiar settings. I really liked the characters, including the main character, Talon. Talon was maybe a bit too talented with too many different types of skills to be completely believable, but I enjoyed him and his story anyway. This book didn’t hold anything groundbreaking or unusual for epic fantasy, and in fact it depended on several tried and true tropes, but Feist writes them well and I never lost interest.

I had been hoping to see some follow-up with Jimmy the Hand’s grandsons, Jimmy and Dash, but the 30-year jump in the time frame means we skipped over the events I’d been interested in seeing at the end of the Serpentwar Saga. The characters were briefly mentioned, but not seen. I don’t know if we’ll get to see more of them in later books, but I get the impression from the subseries titles of the remaining books that we probably won’t go back in time to fill in any of that 30-year gap unless there are some flashbacks. In any case, I also look forward to seeing what happens next with the characters introduced in this book. ( )
