A year after the events of Magician the Kingdom of the Isles faces a threat from an ancient enemy, and the heroes of the first book of Feist’s Riftwar Saga are once again called to action.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Pug is a young orphan who has been taken under the protection of the local Duke and has found a place for himself at the castle. On the day of Choosing, he is taken as an apprentice by the Duke’s magician, Kulgan, and sets about learning the ways of magic. Shortly thereafter, an unfamiliar ship is wrecked on the shore, and pretty soon the Kingdom is being besieged by invaders from another world.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s quite rare for me to give a book five stars, so when I tell you that this one deserves all five of them I’m not messing. I’ve previously read (and enjoyed) indie author H. L. Burke‘s fantasy series, The Dragon & The Scholar, so I already had some strong expectations when I started Beggar Magic, and it’s fair to say that her latest work has exceeded those expectations.
