Feist-y Storytelling

Magician Books by Raymond E. Feist
Lately I have been raiding my bookshelves looking for something that I haven't read in a while. I go through phases where it seems like I've read everything a million times, and there's nothing left in the house to read.

This inspires feelings of despair, but they're generally short lived.

To move past the despair, I picked up a book I haven't read in a while, Raymond E. Feist's Riftwar series. This story spans two worlds, and is one of my all-time favorites.

The story begins with the book Magician, which is usually found as a two-parter, though it was originally written as one. Publishers knowing best, it was broken into two books to make it more appealing to the consumer.

This is the beginning of a story that covers two worlds, a huge war, and has all the best elements of any fantasy story: Elves, Magicians, Princes, Thieves, Dragons, and much more.

The best part of this story is that it is only the beginning of an ongoing series, and it just seems to keep getting better and better.
