EXILE'S RETURN is the penultimate volume in the CONCLAVE OF SHADOWS from worldwide bestselling author Raymond E Feist. Featuring one of the most fascinating characters and scenarios ever created in the genre. The series promises to become one of the great all-time classics in the field. Once absolute ruler of his nation Kaspar, former Duke of Olasko, has been cast into exile. Abandoned in the wilds of a continent on the other side of the world and left with nothing but his wits and determination, he must fight merely to survive. Armed with guile, cunning and an iron will, he starts his odyssey with a single goal: to return to his home and revenge himself upon the man who cast him down, Talwin Hawkins. But fate has other plans for Kaspar, and as he struggles against adversity, he encounters dangers greater than any he had imagined. More is at stake than he realised and Kaspar is but a single player in a far greater game than he imagined, for pitted against the Conclave of Shadows are the agents of the Dark Empire, a looming menace that threatens not only Kaspar's homeland, but the entire world of Midkemia.… (més)

This book took a slightly awesome direction, breaking the usual storytelling mold we've gotten used to in Feist-land.

The previous novel's villain just became this novel's hero. :) He was so crafty, so unpredictable and cool, he needed an encore. :) And he got an encore, exiled in a distant land, in chains, and left to his own devices.

And yet, he gets transformed in his journey. :) Not bad. Not bad at all. :)

Oh, and the Geas had nothing to do with it. :) Or the revelations that the whole world was about to become a feeding ground for evil pouring in through thousands of portals. Or the discovery that evil really is madness. :)

I think I had more fun with this one than I have in the last five or six novels. Maybe more. But then, I'm a sucker for redemption novels. :) ( )

Exile’s Return is labeled as the third book in the Conclave of Shadows trilogy, a subseries of Feist’s larger Riftwar Cycle. Unlike his other subseries, this book did not bring the current storyline to a clear conclusion. It ended not exactly with a cliff hanger, but with a looming (if not unexpected) problem revealed right at the end of the book plus a major unresolved mission.

For the most part, I enjoyed this story as much as the previous two in the trilogy, although it really veered off on a different path. The second book had wrapped up the main story surrounding the main character of the first two books, and this book has a different main character, one we have some reason not to be very fond of. He isn’t an unsympathetic character, but I didn’t warm up to him as much.

I thought the story was pretty interesting. It started off as one thing that I liked and that was told well, but I wasn’t sure I wanted an entire book of it. Before I could get tired of that, things got a bit stranger, even a tiny bit creepy for a brief time, and my interest grew. Then we started to learn how that fit into the bigger picture and that was interesting too, and there was some good action at the end.

I wasn’t quite prepared for the incomplete story after all the previous subseries had ended more conclusively. For me it’s not a big deal since I’m reading the whole series more-or-less all at once, with usually just a single-book break between each subseries. Still, it left me undecided on whether to take my usual between-subseries break after this book or jump straight into the next subseries while I still have the momentum going. I decided to go ahead and take my break anyway, but I’ll use one of the shortest standalone books on my list. If I had it to do over again, I’d have taken the break after the second book and then gone from this book straight to the next subseries. There are only 3 subseries left to go, and I’m wondering if the next two will both end in a similar way. Hopefully the last one won’t! The title of the very last book certainly sounds final. ( )

The change in point of view was jarring, but the main character showed true growth, which was interesting in this context. ( )

De beschrijvende tekst klopt niet helemaal. Claudius Haviks (Klauw) heeft nimmer Hertog Kaspar van Olasko gedood!

De hoofdpersoon in dit boek is niet Claudius Haviks, maar Hertog Kaspar, zijn vijand uit de vorige delen. De hertog heeft verschrikkelijke dingen gedaan. Na te zijn verbannen uit zijn land en naar Novindus te zijn gebracht is het aan Kaspar om te overleven. Dit lukt hem, ternauwernood. Kaspar zweert om terug te keren naar zijn land, en wraak te nemen op Claudius en Quint Havrevulen die zijn tirannieke regime omver wierpen. Niet langer onder de invloed van duistere magiër Leso Varen begint hij meer en meer zijn daden uit het verleden in twijfel te trekken.

En nu.. komt Kaspar in het bezit van iets zo duister en krachtig dat het het leven op Midkermia en de rest van de wereld kan vernietigen. En de enige die hem kunnen helpen om het te vernietigen zijn diegene die hem afgezet en verbannen hebben.

Langzaam begint de Hertog te veranderen, en uiteindelijk zal hij het Conclaaf der Schaduwen helpen.

Dit boek is het derde deel in een trilogy, maar is meer een op zich zelf staand verhaal dan een voortgang van de vorige twee delen [b:Klauw van de Zilverhavik|18491798|Klauw van de Zilverhavik|Raymond E.

Feist|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1371068132s/16023654.jpg|2930911]. Hoewel het boek traag startte kwam het al snel tot een goed te lezen verhaal. Hoewel ik het einde wel zag aankomen, kwam het toch als een verrassing.

After assiduously following the exploits of Talon in th eptrevious two entries in this series, he is rather callously dumped by Feist and we follow the exploits of Kaspar, the former duke of Olasko. Left weaponless and alone on th ewindswept plains of Novindus the former duke has to survive that inhospitable continent's many perils if he is to regain his former throne.

But is he the same person as he was before he was deposed? As he makes his way through all that Novindus can throw at him, Kaspar reluctantly comes to the conclusion that he isn't - not just because the evil influence of his court magician has worn off, but because he has genuinely come to see that his previous life wasn't leading him anywhere he really wanted to be. Along with that revelation, Kaspar falls in with a group of other exiles from the Kingdom and it's environs. A trio of traders are all that remain of a larger venture that had attempted to find wealth in this distant land but their discovery of a strange suit of armour was, instead, leading to their deaths. As Kaspar began to understand what they were up against he realised that the.. thing represented a threat to all life on Midkemia and the only ones who could help were the members of the Conclave of Shadows who wanted him dead...

By this time I found the series was getting a little too repetitive in many respects and while it was interesting to see Kaspar changing some of that was a bit unlikely in my opinion ( )
