Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Young Tal Hawkins was the only survivor of the massacre of his village — rescued, recruited, and trained by the mysterious order of magicians and spies, the Conclave of Shadows. Already exceptionally skilled in swordsmanship, he has since developed into one of the secret society's most valuable agents, keeping ever alert for the opportunity to arise when he can avenge the craven slaughter of his family and friends.

That time is now.

Posing as a nobleman from the distant Kingdom of the Isles, he gains entrance into the court of the Duke of Olasko, the bloodthirsty and powerful despot whose armies put Tal's village to the sword. But the enemy is cunning and well protected — in league with the foul necromancer Leso Varen, dark master of death-magic — and to gain the Duke's trust and confidence, Tal Hawkins must first sell his soul.

Only by swearing an oath of allegiance to his hated nemesis can Tal hope to get close enough to kill the Duke and bring his empire crashing down. But the tyrant demands that his new acolyte prove his loyalty with blood. Sent off to do his "master's" malevolent bidding — each depraved mission more odious than the last — the Talon of the Silver Hawk faces a spirit-crushing dilemma. Only through evil can his vengeance succeed, yet his alternatives are more terrible still: madness, torture, damnation, and a slow, lingering death in the Fortress of Despair.

Review:

"Devoted fans will welcome the author's focus on Roldem and the Eastern Kingdoms....The novel's relentless pace and explosive climactic battle will ensure another crowd-pleaser for Feist to add to his already impressive resume." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"The second Tal Hawkins novel expands the saga in Feist's usual deft fashion....The well-balanced pair of protagonists make this a particularly solid achievement for Feist." Booklist

Synopsis:

The second installment in Conclave of Shadows, the latest multivolume epic of adventure, danger, magic, and intrigue from New York Times-bestselling Feist.
