I am loving this series. It is fun, it has romance, it has political intrigue, it has battles and it is built in a fascinating world.

The heroine, Mara, is going to be one of my favorite fantasy ladies of all time. She is strong, intelligent and loyal. The loyalty to Clan is important, but in a world where it is not acceptable, she is loyal to her servants and slaves. Her relationship with the barbarian from Midkemia grows and we also get to explore new areas of this fantastic world Feist created. Having Jenny Wurts along for the ride has doubled the pleasure of reading this story. ( )

Not as good as the First book in the trilogy, In my opinion Kevin was a mistake to bring in to the story. ( )

I honestly think this second book in the trilogy is better than the first. Maybe it's due to getting used to the characters and the initial worldbuilding over on the other side of the pond... or I should say, the other side of the universe through the Rift from the previous Rifwar books... but I honestly don't think so.

This is a lot more solid than the last, focusing more on Kevin from the other side, the whole slavery issue, and plenty of war footing to round out the politics and the solidification of the House.

And then, there's the whole thing about SMITING ONE'S ENEMIES in every way possible, even saving enough energy for mercy which is NOT accepted, letting her DESTROY with impunity. :)

Very fun. I'm fully on board to rip through the third book in this trilogy. :) ( )

Hoewel ik het vorige deel [b:Dochter van het keizerrijk|17726775|Dochter van het keizerrijk (De Kronieken van het Keizerrijk, #1)|Raymond E. Feist|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1404847825s/17726775.jpg|2960453] maar 3 sterren gaf, is dit boek er zeker 4 waard. Misschien zelfs 5, maar dat is iets wat ik weinig zal doen. Het was een dik boek (op mijn e-reader instellingen kwam ik uit op ruim 700 pagina's) met een plot die naar mijn mening met minder had toegekund. Het tempo van het boek was redelijk, hoewel het soms voort leek te slepen. Sommige namen waren slecht te onthouden. Regelmatig zat ik met 'wie is dat nou weer'.

Ik kan me slecht inleven in vrouwelijke hoofdpersonen, maar in het geval van Mara was dat niet het geval. Er was veel romantiek in het boek, zeker tussen Kevin en Mara.

Mooi einde. Op naar het 3e deel van deze trilogie [b:Vrouwe van het keizerrijk|16015623|Vrouwe van het keizerrijk|Raymond E. Feist|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1371390718s/16015623.jpg|2960486]. ( )

Servant of the Empire is the second book in The Empire Trilogy by Raymond E. Feist and Janny Wurts.

This book continues with the same level of depth and nuance that the first book had, and the story continues to be full of political intrigue as well as having a few good moments of military action. The first book held my attention without fail, and I still enjoyed this book very much, but I did think it had several slow spots. Part of these were due to segments of the story where the characters were waiting for information or for something to happen, and sometimes I started to get a little restless. Other parts involved seeing events from the Tsurani perspective that were already familiar to me from the original Riftwar Saga, removing some of the suspense. On the other hand, I did also really enjoy seeing how those events affected people on Kelewan and how they played a role in larger events that we didn’t know about in the other subseries, and the story really did require that the events be explored in detail or it would have rung false.

There was hardly any romance in the first book, but this one has a prominent romantic subplot. When I first read it in my early twenties, I was actually quite invested in that subplot. In fact, it’s one of the few things about the story that I still remembered from so long ago. This time around, I was less enthusiastic about it and I think this part of the story is really where most of the slower spots came from for me. It doesn’t use any really annoying romance tropes, at least not in my opinion. It’s handled pretty well, I just didn’t feel any investment in it this time. Mara is still quite young and I think her behavior was entirely realistic given her background and past experiences, but her obsession and confusion did get irritating sometimes. I found myself sympathizing with Nacoya quite a bit! I also had some trouble with Kevin’s behavior. I was disappointed with how easily he forgot his fellow slaves and how quickly he adapted to a life that went against his belief system for the sake of being with Mara. Of course, his influence played a huge role in the direction the story took and it wouldn’t have been the same story without that. I enjoyed a lot of the things Kevin brought to the story with his Kingdom perspective and his humor, but I think I would have liked it just a bit better if his influence had come without the serious romantic entanglement, maybe more of a relationship like what Mara and Lujan had.

Overall though, despite a few slow moments, I still really enjoyed the story. There were some great moments, and I especially enjoyed how everything wrapped up toward the end. As with the first book, this one tells a complete and satisfying story, wrapping up all the main plot threads while leaving room for more story to answer the question of “What happens next?”. Since I don’t remember much about what happens next, I look forward to finding out again.

I forgot to add this warning when I reviewed book 1, but both books 1 and 2 have a major spoiler on the map at the beginning of the book, at least in the U.S. Kindle editions I read. The Minwanabi estate is listed as “Acoma Estate (formerly Minwanabi)” and the Acoma estate is listed as “Old Acoma Estate”. This change doesn’t happen until near the end of the second book. I don’t remember noticing this when I originally read the series, so it may be an error that was introduced more recently when the e-books were created. ( )
