Raymond E. Feist Ì 7 Summary

characters Faerie Tale characters ß Faerie Tale 107 In rural upstate New York Life was wonderful full of magic and about to be altered irrevocably by a Magic real than any he dared imagineFor with the Magic came the Bad T. Raymond E Feist b 1945 is one of the leading fantasy writers in the contemporary US literary scene best known for his massive Riftwar Saga series Barb and I read the latter in the early 90s and liked it although I ve never reviewed it here and we never followed it up with any of the succeeding series I was inclined to think there was a limit to how many magical existential threats one kingdom in a fantasy world could realistically be expected to encounter in succession and suspected that the severe case of seuelitis was mostly an attempt to milk the settingcharacters for cash That said I did think the first series was involving and well written with lifelike characters who are engaging and a plot that s often emotionally compelling it also didn t feel so dependent on Tolkien as Terry Brooks Shannara series openerHowever my first introduction to Feist s work was this stand alone novel read as a public library check out a few years earlier not long after it was published I still consider it the best of his books that I ve read and it made a strong enough impression on my memory that I feel comfortable reviewing it after than 30 years without having a copy in front of me Though it will necessarily be a shorter and less detailed review than some of mine areIn the author s present a well to do family very successful Hollywood scriptwriter his second wife roughly 20 year old daughter from his first marriage and a pair of boys on the cusp of their teens move into a long empty old country house Erl King Hill in the wilds of upstate New York It doesn t take long like about the first page for the reader to be made aware that this house and its environs are a habitat for the Fae and a place where their reality intersects with ours and it turns out that there s even much much and deeper significance to the connection than that Feist will disclose all of his mysteries only in his own good time and meanwhile all of the Hastings family members are in for a puzzling stressful and ultimately scary and potentially lethal adventureInteraction of the supernatural with the mundane world is a motif I really like in fiction and it s here in spades A few scenes here take place in Faerie so I ve classified this as fantasy but the bulk of the tale plays out in this world I ve recommended it for fans of supernatural fiction as well Much actual traditional lore about the Fae from European cultures mostly Celtic and Germanic is worked in here very nicely such as the Wild Hunt Wieland the smith the Seelie and the Unseelie Courts we even have a cameo appearance of Thomas the Rhymer All of the Hastings family members are likable characters that you root for and wish well and they all play significant roles in the story including the boys who get to show their mettle The other characters are also vital and realistic Feist does a great job with his plotting and he provides some romance to add pleasant flavor to the stew it has an insta love uality but despite that uibble and despite some implied premarital sex it comes across as genuine love This isn t a kid s book despite the two younger characters but there s no explicit sex and bad language is restrained there are two f words but in perspective it s a 420 page book It s not a deep read that grapples much with profound spiritual or philosophical uestions but for me it was a really enjoyable page turning read If Goodreads used half stars in its rating system I d actually have given the book 4 and 12 Emily Brontë irrevocably by a Magic real than any he dared Right Package Wrong Baggage imagineFor with the Magic came the Bad T.

I decided that it was time to re read this one Even though I ve read this twice already Feist is scaring the crap out of me to the point that I have to set it aside sometimes I will be with it for a few days I m sure even though I m putting today s date on the review I can do this because I know my rating won t change esp since GoodReads doesn t let a person give a book than 5 stars Damn this is scaryFeist is certainly one of the best in the genre His descriptions of the worlds he visits are vivid you not only see them you feel them His characters are absolutely real including the fantasy supernatural ones This is the first of Feist s works that I read and on re reading the magic holds For my money this is his best Feist like King and children themselves knows that kids are often the targets of the Bad Things and that they must and do struggle with evil he doesn t shy away from these truths His magical beings live in a different sometimes overlapping reality with it s own rules The blurbs refer to the book as harrowing and forboding Both are true This is one scary tale on multiple levels Enjoy Just don t read it home alone in the dark
