The first book in the Riftwar series, in which a fantasy realm is invaded by a different fantasy realm from another dimension.

The inter-dimensional conflict is a concept with a bit of potential, but overall I have to say this was just really not a very good book. The version I have is the "author's preferred edition," and based on the explanation of the in the author's introduction, it seems one of the changes in this version is that some discussions of the history of the fantasy kingdom that were initially cut out by the editor have been restored. Alas, I can only think that the editor probably did him a big favor by cutting them out in the first place. It seems like at least a third of this novel is nothing but exposition already, and none of it is interesting at all. I can't help feeling that it reads as if Feist read The Lord of the Rings, with its long passages of worldbuilding and its slow journeys, and its big battle scenes and thought, "Hey, I want to do that!" but failed to grasp anything of what made Tolkein's world or his story so mythically resonant and so compelling. Which, in fairness, may actually be true for a lot of this kind of fantasy.

Oh, well. On the positive side, while the plot itself is ponderously slow, the actual pages often went by pretty fast. So it's a fairly readable novel, as not-very-good novels go.

I already have the second installment, which presumably picks up where this one leaves off, as nothing is resolved here at all. And I do intend to read it, if only out of some sense of completion. But I can't say I'm in any great hurry. ( )

I love this book! I first read it as a kid and have reread it every few years since then. Absolutely love the world this book spawned and I always keep up with his latest books.

I'm not usually into fantasy, but Raymond E Feist is a master storyteller and I would recommend his books to anyone. ( )

The Magician: Apprentice is the story of Pug (a dreadful name to pin on a kid) - an apprentice to Kulgan: the castle magician. There's not alot of magic in the story, however. There is also a little 14-year-old crush-triangle with the Duke's daughter. Pug's world is turned on its ear when the Tsurani invade from another dimension and story line splits into several as the key players are mobilized to protect the realm. There are elves, dwarves, and even an elderly dragon. I wanted to like this book more than I did - it's not a 3 star - but not quite a 4 for me... how about a 3 3/4? It took me quite awhile to read - mainly because I wasn't feeling swept away by the story. If I stumble over book 2 I may continue it and see how it all shakes out for Pug and the gang.

Re-read.

I devoured this book and the next four back in the late eighties and SERIOUSLY desired more... and yet, I never did get around to picking up all the subsequent books... until now.

Of course, I needed to re-read an old love and see if it stands up to the test of time, and you know what I found?

Fantastical fantasy goodness! I love it! And you know what's better? The author did a bang-up job of re-editing this "author-preferred" text. An extra 50k words, side plots, characters, and more rounding of the world. The old story was not touched, just enhanced. What can I say?

I like this novel better this time. :)

Great elements remain, and now through my YA-jaded eyes, what could have been a cringe-worthy love triangle was nothing of the sort. Becoming an apprentice, solidifying life-long friendships, going on an adventure full of pathos and seeming tragedy ends with lots of valor, gorgeous descriptions, and a vast, sweeping war.

Alien invaders in the literal sense, if not in an SF sense. Alternate world, rifts, magics, slavery, and SO MUCH VALOR! :)

I'm SO glad I'm revisiting this. I fully plan to read all the way through this next year. :) Yay! What a treat! ( )
