KING OF ASHES REVIEW
King of Ashes by Raymond E. Feist.
This is the first installment in the Firmane Saga. The betrayal of an ancient alliance between five kingdoms and the ripple effects across the two continents sets the stage for the coming struggle. A hidden heir of the fallen kingdom who knows nothing of his legacy returns to the land of his birth with dark skills and an inner fire, of which he aims to learn the origin and what it means for his future. Joining him is an equally talented girl with secret orders and torn loyalties, as well as a very talented blacksmith who too has unknown parentage.
New alliances, spies, assassins, and hidden magic make this story pulse with intrigue and keeps the reader engaged page after page. We await the continuation of this series with great anticipation.
