I think this book is the best in the series so far. It is the 3rd book of the series and in my opinion the fastest moving. Don't get me wrong, I loved the first two books as well. In those books there were parts that I felt that they were drawn out when talking on politics, war strategies, etc. That just happens to not be my thing. In this book not so much.
All in the kingdom is well. Lyam and his brothers just finished making rounds to visit other cities, Arutha is in love and everything seems to be going great when evil starts to enter Krondor. The book is filled with love, magic, creatures, fighting, etc. All which makes it a fast read and very enjoyable.
If you've read the first two books, I highly recommend this one.
lots of fun. I like the new characters introduced
The thrid book of the Riftwar saga. A poison bolt strikes down the princess on her wedding day and Prince Arutha will stop at nothing to find an antidote. He must find the mystic herb Silverthorn which is only found in the north, home of the dark elves.
