Waiting on Wednesday is a meme I’ve participated in for years which lets readers share their excitement for books coming out soon, and this week my pick is for a series which I’ve been enjoying for the last few years.  Anyway, the novel I’m eagerly awaiting is . . .

Length: 512 pages

For centuries, the five greatest kingdoms of North and South Tembria, twin continents on the world of Garn, have coexisted in peace. But the balance of power is destroyed when four of the kingdoms violate an ancient covenant and betray the fifth: Ithrace, the Kingdom of Flames, ruled by Steveren Langene, known as “the Firemane” for his brilliant red hair. As war engulfs the world, Ithrace is destroyed and the Greater Realms of Tembria are thrust into a dangerous struggle for supremacy.

As a Free Lord, Baron Daylon Dumarch owes allegiance to no king. When an abandoned infant is found hidden in Daylon’s pavilion, he realizes that the child must be the missing heir of the slain Steveren. The boy is valuable—and vulnerable. A cunning and patient man, Daylon decides to keep the baby’s existence secret, and sends him to be raised on the Island of Coaltachin, home of the so-called Kingdom of Night, where the powerful and lethal Nocusara, the “Hidden Warriors,” legendary assassins and spies, are trained.

Years later, another orphan of mysterious provenance, a young man named Declan, earns his Masters rank as a weapons smith. Blessed with intelligence and skill, he unlocks the secret to forging King’s Steel, the apex of a weapon maker’s trade known by very few. Yet this precious knowledge is also deadly, and Declan is forced to leave his home to safeguard his life. Landing in Lord Daylon’s provinces, he hopes to start anew.

Soon, the two young men—an unknowing rightful heir to a throne and a brilliantly talented young swordsmith—will discover that their fates, and that of Garn, are entwined. The legendary, long-ago War of Betrayal has never truly ended . . . and they must discover the secret of who truly threatens their world.

  1. Reblogged this on Archer's Aim and commented:
    I’m often searching for a new book to read as soon as I finish one. I’m between books at the moment and I’m looking at this series. I must say there are several authors I need to read and Raymond Feist is one of them. This series is going on the TBR.

  2. I’ve been sitting on a digital ARC of this for a while, and am anxious to get into it. I’ve always been a Feist fan, and given how strongly he ended Riftwar, this should be good (although all the publication delays do make me curious).

  3. Pretty excited about this one too. I got an ARC last week which I’m eager to dive into. It’ll be my first Feist.
