    Yeah ive read it, its an alright read, unforunatley he takes a while to get into anything interesting.

    However i loved All his books, got me into the whole genre, i only have Mistress of the Empire left and im finshed.....

    Here are a few questions for Feist Fans:

    Favourite Character? Personally, Jimmy the Hand, hes cocky, but has a right to be.

    Favourite Book? The Kings Bucanneer was one of my favourites, Although it doesnt quite beat Magician, and the other riftwar ones were as good also.

    and a more dark question, do you think he is overdoing the whole, "Is an untested child fraught with danger, and grows up defying all odds to be a greaet *whatever* e.g warrior, magician, thief. I mean, he did it with Pug and Thomas, Mara, Talon, Nicholas, The Twins, Eric and Roo, and William. The only one you can really get away with is Jimmy, as he was already a great thief when we met him.

    What do you think?

    Yeah, thats very nice art, although, ive always thought the point in books was that you got your own image of the people in your head, and some of the pictures of people just seem wrong to me.....but then again it is nice to see how others intupret the books.

    I'm happy that you like it Legend and Angel of Chaos my friends. It took awhile working with Mr. Feist to get his vision adapted the way that he wanted. Whenever we have some new art that is public, I will be sure to keep you informed :)

    I went to the one in Manchester this year! He's a truly funny and awesome guy, it has to be said! =) He ended up talking more about writing and what it's like being a novelist than he did the book, 'cause he didn't want to give away any spoilers for the 2nd in the series, which has just been sent to the publisher (I believe).

    Someone actually asked "If Pug and Tom were in a fight, who do you think would win?"
    That made everyone laugh.
    Feist's answer: it's all down to chance; who gets in that lucky fatal blow, or who misses a parry.

    I had to work this year. But at least I already have a whole bunch of signed books from the last one ^^. He talked mostly about writing then but also about characters (so long as no spoilers were involved). It amused me that for several people he seemed just as interested in finding out where they came from/where they were going as the audience did.
