Young Tal Hawkins was the only survivor of the massacre of his village -- rescued, recruited, and trained by the mysterious order of magicians and spies, the Conclave of Shadows. Already exceptionally skilled in swordsmanship, he has since developed into one of the secret society's most valuable agents, keeping ever alert for the opportunity to arise when he can avenge the craven slaughter of his family and friends. That time is now. Posing as a nobleman from the distant Kingdom of the Isles, he gains entrance into the court of the Duke of Olasko, the bloodthirsty and powerful despot whose armies put Tal's village to the sword. But the enemy is cunning and well protected -- in league with the foul necromancer Leso Varen, dark master of death-magic -- and to gain the Duke's trust and confidence, Tal Hawkins must first sell his soul. Only by swearing an oath of allegiance to his hated nemesis can Tal hope to get close enough to kill the Duke and bring his empire crashing down. But the tyrant demands that his new acolyte prove his loyalty with blood. Sent off to do his "master's" malevolent bidding -- each depraved mission more odious than the last -- the Talon of the Silver Hawk faces a spirit-crushing dilemma. Only through evil can his vengeance succeed, yet his alternatives are more terrible still: madness, torture, damnation, and a slow, lingering death in the Fortress of Despair.… (més)

This one turned out quite a bit darker than the first, happily, and the hero of our tale got himself very nicely snagged as a minor noble in a big chaotic game of the Duke.

The duke is, of course, the king of foxes, and he really won’t be outfoxed.

All told, I had a good time, enjoying a lot of intrigue fluff, long-game revenge planning, and natural reversals. It’s game of thrones, Feist-style.

There is nothing groundbreaking here, but it was entertaining, and that’s all I’m looking for at the moment. :) ( )

King of Foxes is the second book in the Conclave of Shadows subseries within the larger Riftwar Cycle series by Raymond E. Feist. The story continued to focus on the characters introduced in the first book and moved forward with the story begun there.

This was another solid, enjoyable read. I really don’t have much to say about it that I didn’t already say about the first book. I was actually surprised that most of the plot seemed to have been wrapped up by the end even though there’s one more book in the trilogy. There were some revelations near the end that seemed likely to be setup for the next subseries, but maybe we’ll learn more about it in the next book too. Also, the thing that happened at the very end of this book combined with the title of the next book does give at least a hint as to what the next book might be about. I’m looking forward to finding out what happens next. ( )

Better than the first book, more robust and well-rounded. ( )

In dit boeken volgen wij Klauw (Claus) tijdens zijn verdere pogingen om wraak te nemen op Hertog Kasper. Hij komt voor grote dilemmas te staan als hij aan het einde van het boek een keuze moet maken.

De eerste helft van het boek was nogal cliche-vol. In de twee helft werd het boek heel wat beter, zo ongeveer na de ontsnapping van Klauw en de overige gevangene uit het fort met veel actie.

De titel is naar mijn mening niet gelukkig gekozen. Er was geen enkele verwijzing naar of connectie naar een Koning der Vossen.

After Talon's triumph in the fencing court of Roldem, he's also managed to deal with a number of those people who had killed his people but their master, the powerful Duke Kasper of Olasko still lived and Talon had to find some way of insinuating himself in that Duke's court, both to fulfil his oath to his slaughtered people and on the orders of the Conclave of Shadows who needed to know more about the duke's magician Laso Varen, a man who had gained a terrible reputation on little evidence

Again, Talon finds himself thrust into a variety of situations that try him to near destruction, especially his incarceration on the Duke's special prison island. At that point, the story does descend into rather unlikely areas as Talon is able to build an alliance that would bring down the most powerful ruler outside the Kingdom. ( )
