Third in the massively successful Krondor series inspired by Feist's global best-selling computer game Return to Krondor. A drop in the ocean?
A raid upon the high seas signals an attack of unprecedented magnitude by the forces of darkness. For the holiest of holies, the Tear of the Gods has been lost to the Temple of Ishap. After a raid planned by Bear, one of the most brutal pirates to sail the Bitter Sea, goes dramatically wrong, the colossal gems sink below the waves.
So begins a story of the Tear of the Gods, the most powerful artifact known to the Temples of Midkemia. For it allows the temples to speak with their gods. Without it they are lost for a decade, until another gem is formed in the distant mountains.
Squire James, William, and Jazhara, new court magician, must seek out the location of this gem with Brother Solon, a warrior priest of Ishap, and Kendaric, the sole member of the Wreckers' Guild, with the power to raise the ship. They are opposed by the minions of Sidi, servant of the Dark God, who seeks to possess the Tear for his own ends or to destroy it, denying it to the forces of light.
This third tale in The Riftwar Legacy is a breathless race for a priceless treasure. It's a race against time, against the myriad sinister and competing evil forces desperate for the all-powerful prize, and ultimately against the fundamentals of nature, which in Midkemia can be as formidable as the gods themselves.

OK so to set some context. Raymond got into bed with Sierra over a video game based on his novels. He then, for whatever reason, decided to try and write novels alongside the game. (All of this can be found on his website) These novels lack all of the in depth flavour and thrills that the Riftwar Saga produced. It's as if they were written by someone else. The characters lack depth and colour and simply seem to behave ina shallow and superficial maner. The plots are boring and in fact you can imagine them being little side quests in a computer game. All in all a lot of damage doen to his reputation. I'm *really* looking forward to re-reading the next few books which are not associated with this awful period of writing. I have heard that JIMMY and THE CRAWLER (The forth book in the series has been started. This is apparently free of the game's/Sierra's influence so I have high hoped for it when it comes out but I'l look at that later. There's rumours of a fifth book. Lets see. Anyway the book was given 3 stars and to be fair 2 of them were simply because this is feist and his previous works keep me coming back but if it had been anyone else he'd have been toast.
A great book especially if you enjoy extremely well written characters that make you laugh, smile and cry.
