Rise of a Merchant Prince

Rise of a Merchant Prince

A TALE OF WEALTH AND AMBITION IN A WORLD OF MURDER, MAGIC AND INTRIGUE.

Roo Avery, recently returned from a harrowing brush with the armies of the Emerald Queen, is now free to choose his own destiny and his ultimate ambition is to become one of the richest and most powerful merchants in Midkemia.

But nothing can prepare him for the dangers of the new life he has chosen where the repayment of a debt can be as deadly as a knife in the shadows. Even those closest to him are suspect and as Roo struggles to build his financial empire, betrayal is always close at hand. His instinctive cunning will serve him well, but he will soon realise that the road to success is far from smooth.

And while Roo works towards achieving his goal, the memory of the distant forces of darkness are never far away. For the war with the Emerald Queen is far from over and the inevitable confrontation will pose the biggest threat yet to his new found wealth and power.

    4 to 4.5 stars - the continuing saga of the Kingdom of Midkemia vs the Emerald Queen.This book was very entertaining! While it stood on its own, it is very obviously part of the larger Serpentwar Saga...

    Oddly enough, I had a lot more fun with this than I expected I'd have with a title with MERCHANT and PRINCE in it. As a matter of fact, I pretty much loved every part of Avery and his rise to grand we...

    Giving this two stars very regretfully, but I can't bring myself to give more. Throughout the reread of Feist's books, I've rediscovered bits, I've reevaluated bits and I've come across things I never...

    I read this book and continued the series to give it one more chance. I wasn't a fan of Shadow of a Dark Queen, and I was even less interested in this book.The story focuses on a character who was ext...

    This book is cute. It shows the preparations for the larger story.It doesn't discuss the unlikeliness of both characters from the earlier books having ridiculous potential, being able to quickly move ...

    Well shucks, Mr. Feist, you've bamboozled me again. Yet again I found myself unable to put the book down and once again I was pretty disappointed when I did. Some small steps were taken to resolving t...

  • Timelord Iain

    Like this one more than the first book in the Serpentwar Saga, but had similar feelings as the story progressed... I LOVED the first third of the book... there's just something about watching the deve...
