"For centuries, the five great kingdoms of Andalane have coexisted peacefully. Then, Steveren Langene, King of Ithrace, known as "Firemane" for his brilliant head of red hair, is betrayed by his counterparts, and a bitter war engulfs the world. Ithrace, the Kingdom of Flames, is destroyed by battle, ending an ancient balance of power. As a Free Lord of Osean, Daylon Dumarch owes allegiance to no king, but knows it is unwise to betray any of them. So when an abandoned infant is found secreted in Daylon's pavilion, he instantly realizes that the child must be the missing heir of the slain King Steveren. The child is valuable--and vulnerable. A cunning and patient man, Daylon keeps the baby's existence secret, sending him to be raised on the Island Kingdom of Coaltachin, the Kingdom of Night, where the most powerful and lethal soldiers--a Ninja-like warrior sect called the Nocusara, the "Hidden Warriors"--Are trained. Years later, a young man named Declan, also an orphan of unknown parenthood, earns his Masters standing as a swordsmith. Blessed with intelligence and skill, he unlocks the secret to forging King's Steel, the apex of a weaponmaker's art shared by only a 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 an exiled swordsmith--will discover their fates entwined, and that the legendary, long-ago War of Five Crowns has never truly ended ... and that they must see it to conclusion"--… (lisätietoja)

I received an advance reader copy of King of Ashes in exchange for an honest review. I would like to thank Raymond E. Feist and Harper Voyager.

So, most all of the other reviews have given the basic premise of the book so I’m not going to go over that again. I don’t write reviews often, but as this was an ARC it’s only fitting to hold up my end.

What did I think of this book? Well, I very rarely finish a book if I don’t enjoy the authors voice. Since I did finish it, you can be comforted that after the long silence Raymond E. Feist’s writer’s voice is not rusty.

While I am not a fan of the political intrigue angle these days as much as I used to be when I read books like George R. R. Martin’s GOT back in the 90’s, the balance was enough that I never really wanted to put it down and moved on to something a little less political. ( )

Having read the far majority of all of Feist's works before now, and even doing so recently, I was pretty astounded to learn that he had a NEW fantasy series. One that requires no previous knowledge or the need to rely on vast previous worldbuilding.

In other words, this is a perfect book to jump into, assuming you want an absolutely gorgeous and detailed kingdom, some rather fully-fleshed out political entities, and two ideal YA character-candidates reminiscent of some of Feist's much earlier (and excellent) work involving two rather precocious princelings. Or their sons.

This is also Feist at the top of his game. He's learned many hard lessons over the years and he has honed all his best strengths into building this book into one hell of a grand Epic Fantasy intro. War hasn't come, but the trap has been laid.

It's unfortunate how much I love these two main characters.

A brilliant young Smith on the rise, kin to the Barony but unknown to any but the Baron and his bastard brother.

And another orphan who is the last son of a king of the Firemanes, red-headed people betrayed and wiped out... who also happens to be the source of magic in the land. He is saved on a whim by the Baron who betrayed his father to death, was allowed to be raised in secret by a clan of assassins.

This couldn't bite anyone in the butt. I'm sure of it.

And yet, with this rather traditional High-Fantasy treatment, I must stress that the devil is truly in the details. It rises and falls with how good the writing is, how invested we get, and how much fun we have.

This book not only holds up well against any modern standard but goes quite a bit farther in that it has deep, wide-reaching roots and a fantastically enjoyable tone.

In other words, ya'll be fools to pass this up if you're into good modern fantasy written by a master of the field with all the heart of the classics (some of which, HE WROTE).

Hatushaly is an utterly stupid name. TMNT stupid. Hero in a Hatushaly?

Apart from that glaring error this is a great book and great start to an epic series.
Feisty's earlier works are regarded as genre classics although I've always found them a bit MEH!
Yeah I said it. Drab, meandering and missing their marks.
Not so KoA which a much more mature effort. Goes straight for the jugular. A juggling act with two heroes and possibly a heroine POVs but never a dull moment because all the CORRECT plot elements are present.

KoA ticks the intrigue box KA-POW! Assassin school training BOOM! Blacksmith training BAM! Pirates KRUNCH! Orphan boys (X2) KA-BOOM! Understated sensible romance BLESSED RELIEF!
YEEAHH BOYEEE! We have a live one here.

Overall, the multiple POVs don't drag and you look forward to each exciting chapter. Usually in these books I have characters whose chapters I just skip because they do nothing for me but FIREMANE burns bright and I can't wait for the sequel - although it won't be as good obviously. ( )

This book is dedicated to the memory of Johnathon Matson.

He was perhaps the finest man I've ever known. His generosity, support, and affection went so far beyond any business relationship, he held me together more than once. He never judged; that was the heart of his wisdom, ant the wisdom of his heart. His memory will endure and he is missed everyday.

Angry dark clouds hurried across the sky, foretelling more rain. A fair match for today's mood, conceded Daylon Dumarch. The battle had ended swiftly as the betrayal had gone according to plan. The five great kingdoms of Garn would never be the same; now the four great kingdoms, Daylon amended silently.
