As the Riftwar tears Midkemia apart, enemies trapped in the frozen Northlands must trust each other to stay alive. . . . In the sprawling, embattled land of Midkemia, fate can form strange alliances. Nine years into the bloody and ongoing Riftwar, Dennis Hartraft's Marauders are cold, hungry, and exhausted. Having only just survived a disastrous encounter with their sworn enemy, the Tsurani, the soldiers are headed for a frontier garrison, where they will be able to rest and recover. But Hartraft's company arrives at the same time as a Tsurani patrol, and both sides discover the stronghold overrun by a migrating horde of dark elves called moredhel, a foe so deadly and vicious the bitter enemies must band together and fight as one. But can their hatred for their mutual enemy overcome their distrust of each other? As the two groups, bound to each other by their common foe, make their way across the unknown Northlands to freedom, they have to struggle with not only the elements and the enemy, but also their consciences. For, with both sides carrying painful scars from past wars, each man must ask himself what is more important: one's life or one's honor?… (més)

What a pleasant surprise!

I kinda expected some old side stories placed at the end of the original Riftwar taking place on the outskirts in the cold north, but not a REALLY GOOD novel about enemies banding together to survive against an implacable foe alien to both.

The tale itself is pretty simple in outline but really told well in detail. The nitty gritty is what this is all about, keeping their men alive at all costs, the dangers and distrust, the cultural exchanges, the growing trust, and of course, the knowledge that they would eventually have to square off and kill each other... eventually. :)

As a novel that really affected me, this kinda did the job better than most of Feist's other novels. :) Odd, right? The big action and the epic awesomeness is missing here, instead focusing on a deep tale of friendship in adversity. :) Totally recommend. ( )

Honored Enemey is the first book in the Legends of the Riftwar subseries which is in the larger Riftwar Cycle. The books in this subseries are all co-written with a different author and, at least going by this first book and the title of the subseries, it appears they all take place during the time span of the very first book (or set of books depending on how you read it), Magician. This book is co-written by William R. Forstchen, an author I’m not familiar with.

The story focuses on original characters that I don't believe we've seen before. The only familiar characters I noticed were during the prologue. The story is pretty heavily focused on battles and enemies and vengeance. There is definitely more content to it than that, but these things are always driving the story. Both the story and the characters took some time to grow on me. I found it pretty tedious early on, and didn’t care much about the characters at all. My interest slowly picked up after the Kingdom soldiers and the Tsurani started working together against the Moredhel.

I couldn’t tell a dramatic difference in the style of this book with Forstchen as a co-author versus the style when Feist writes alone, aside from it being more battle-focused than his other books usually are. Maybe it also had a little less humor, at least of the sort that made me laugh, although I did still laugh a few times. I thought it was a pretty solid story. It held my interest after the slow start, and there were some good moments in it that I really enjoyed. It just didn’t hold anything particularly special for me, so I’m giving it 3.5 stars but rounding down to 3 on Goodreads. ( )

Negen jaar in de oorlog tussen het Koninkrijk en de Tsurani. Het front is redelijk stabiel, met zo nu en dan wat kleine acties tegen elkaar. Tijdens een slag tegen de Tsurani raken de troepen van Dennis Hartraft vast achter de vijandelijke linies. De Koninkrijk Troepen en de Tsurani worden gedwongen om samen te werken tegen de hun beider vijand, de Moredhel

Dit boek is meer een militaire fantasy dan het gebruikelijke soort. De vertrouwde personages uit de eerdere boeken komen hier niet in voor, behalve dan een verwijzing naar een aantal. De sub-plots waren indrukwekkend, en naar mijn idee beter dan het hele verhaal zelf.

Wat mij bevreemde was dat de beide legers een soort vakantie hielden gedurende de tijd dat ze vast zaten in de vallei. In plaats van mogelijke uitwegen te zoeken, of zich voor te bereiden verdeden ze hun tijd met het baden, feest vieren en zich bezig houden met de religieuze vieringen van beide partijen. Ze hadden schijnbaar tijd genoeg om een badhuis te bouwen.

This is another in the shared worlds series of books set in Midkemia, this time with William Forstchen taking up the reins of the shared storyline. In this story winter is setting in and Kingdom forces under the command of captain Hartraft are making a final sweep through the contested northern lines, aiming to rest up in one of a series of forts established for just this purpose. Unknown to the raiders, a Tsurani patrol is also intent on reaching the same outpost. Not for shelter, but to breach Kingdom lines. And just in case we haven't enough players in the game a group of moredhel are intent on suckering both sides into a confrontation with each other. But both Kingdom and Tsurani solders know what their fates will be if they fall into the hands of he moredhel and when the scale of their plight becomes clear, an uneasy truce is declared - the enemy of my enemy may not be my friend but they're a damned sight better than my enemy.

This is another book where I couldn't really sense who wrote which bits, a fairly good sign as I am unfamiliar with Forstchen so there is nothing that is glaringly off and there are some genuinely suspenseful moments though, having read the book, I knew the main protagonists would (mostly!) survive.

Much better read. Probably thanks to the co-writer ( )
