After GRRM, I went on to read Raymond E Feist’s first Riftwars Saga, . I approached this one with trepidation, more so than with George, because I was well aware that it was published in the same year I was born, so I wasn’t sure if that would make it harder and denser to get through. I was pretty surprised that I really enjoyed it, and while I haven’t moved any further along in the series, I definitely will at some point.
The Riftwar was a decade-long war which culminated between two , and . The major combatants were the Empire and the although other factions supported them, such as the and the for the former, and the and for the latter.Drawing a timeline through all of the books of the Riftwar Cycle would reveal a different order to the books than how they were published. The following is the chronological order of the books. Should they be read in this order? That is up to the reader. With these books broken into individual mini-series, if read in this order, you will find yourself jumping between these mini-series. Some of the books build upon information from previously published books, so some characters, locations, or even events may be referenced as if the reader has already been introduced to them. So this order is not the recommended reading order, but it might be an interesting read the second time around.In , Duke Borric discovered the King to be a man of vision, and also a man of doubtful sanity, given to outbursts of temper and rambling discourse. Duke of Rillanon, Borric’s uncle by marriage, warned that the burden of repelling the Tsurani, should they come, would fall to the Western lords. The King distrusted the Prince of Krondor, dreaming of plots against the crown, and was even leery of Borric, who followed after Erland in the succession. He refused to allow the armies of the east to leave the Eastern Realm. Then came the Tsurani invasion and Rodric put aside his suspicions, giving Borric command of the Armies of the West. Borric and his companions rushed westward as the Riftwar began.Playing some Heroes of Newerth RiftWars with my friend Bertan (Baddog in-game)
