The King's Buccaneer Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Set 10 years after the events in Prince of the Blood, this book is a remarkable adventure of mystery and magic.
In Amos Trask's ship, Prince Nicholas and Squire Harry set sail for a friendly visit to Uncle Martin in Crydee.
But while the two are guests in Crydee, disaster strikes.
Nicholas, third son of Prince Arutha, is a gifted youngster, but sheltered by life at his father's court in Krondor. To learn more of the world outside the palace walls, Nicholas and his squire, Harry, set sail for pastoral Crydee, where Arutha grew up.
Shortly after their arrival, Crydee is brutally attacked. The castle is reduced to ruins, the townspeople slaughtered and two young noblewomen - friends of Nicholas - are abducted. As Nicholas ventures further from the familiar landmarks of his home in pursuit of the invaders, he learns that there is more at stake than the fate of his friends, more even than fate of the Kingdom of the Isles, for behind the murderous pirates stands a force that threatens the entire world of Midkemia, and only he is destined to confront this terrifying threat.

If you like a bit of escapism, this has you covered, the characters are exceptional, the story is compelling and fluid, I just can't say enough good about it.
Read it, love it, enjoy it.
Raymond E Feist is one of the handful of fantasy authors that I have collected and kept on my shelves over the years and re-read chronologically from time to time.
The King's Buccaneer continues the saga and as always is a good read, fast paced and entertaining.
Feist's epic saga is still one of the best fantasy series ever.
There are too many errors for the professional quality full-price ebook.
clintele for clientele
Drondorian for Krondorian
Ufe for life
failing for falling
certin for certain
Fulgan for Kulgan
finen for linen
Several missing open quotes at the start of paragraphs
some hyphens instead of em-dashes (elsewhere em-dashes are used correctly)
And that's just the first eight chapters. I haven't checked thoroughly, but I feel it gets a bit worse futher into the book.
Oh - and scene changes aren't marked out sufficiently well.
So: I'm pleased it's now available as a legal ebook. I'm slightly disappointed that OCR errors that shoud have been caught by spell check at least (Ufe ?) were missed.
Hopefully they'll fix the errors at some point.
The new characters were interesting and well developed and by taking the setting to another new place it gave a greater worldbuilding perspective to readers of the whole series.
I would heartily recommend this book to both new and regular readers of the riftwar cycle.
