Read for free: Rides a Dread Legion by Raymond E. Feist

Posted by Simcha 5:22 PM, under | 6 comments

For a limited amount of time you can download Rides a Dread Legion, by Raymond E. Feist, for free at Amazon. This is the first book in Feist's The Demonwar Saga and the download includes a bonus excerpt from At the Gates of Darkness.

Description: The last remnants of an ancient advanced race, the Clan of the Seven Stars, are returning at long last to their lost homeworld, Midkemia-not as friends, but as would-be conquerors. Led by the conjurer Laromendis, they are fleeing the relentless demon hordes that are sweeping through their galaxy and destroying the elves' vast empire planet by planet. Only by escaping to Midkemia and brutally overtaking the war-weary world can the last remnants of a mighty civilization hope to survive . . . if the Dread Legion does not pursue them through the rift. The magician Pug, Midkemia's brave and constant defender, is all too familiar with the Demon King Maarg and his minions and their foul capacity for savagery and horror, and he recognizes the even graver threat that is following on the heels of the elven invasion. The onslaught to come will dwarf every dire catastrophe his imperiled world has previously withstood, and there is no magical champion in all of Midkemia powerful enough to prevent it. Only one path remains for Pug and Midkemia's clandestine protectors, the Conclave of Shadows: forging an alliance of formidable magical talents, from the demon-dealing warlock Amirantha, brother of Pug's hated foe, and the demon-taming cleric Sandreena, to the elven Queen Miranda, to the warrior Tomas. However, uniting enemies and bitter, vengeful former lovers will be no easy task, and even together they may ultimately be unable to turn the death tide. But a failure to do so will most certainly ensure Midkemia's doom.This special free edition includes an excerpt from Raymond E. Feist's newest Demonwar Saga novel, At the Gates of Darkness.

When I saw this about a month ago for a free (you could preorder it for free for your kindle) I click on the buy. Later after telling my fiance I had a picked up a new Feist book, he was super excited. It was pretty fun. I haven't read it yet but plan on sometime soon.

I got this one too and a bunch of freebies. I am so addicted to looking through Amazon for free books - it's a sickness!

If you like the Feist books check out the text game at www.midkemiaonline.com. Basically you can play in a game world, with tons of other players, based on the books. It's cool.

So have any of you read this book yet? Is it any good?
Wonderbunny: I look forward to hearing your opinion of this book

Stephanie: I know it's probably not true, but if I see something is available for free download I lose interest in it because I assume it's not any good. Except for Doctorow's stuff, of course.

Jeremy: Thanks for the link! That does sound like fun. I'm going to go check it out now

Raymond Feist... He is my Favorite author. I have loved the worlds he has created. I have not got to the new series you. But I want to try to get through the other books he has first. I know they are not needed to read in order, but it's just a little thing for me since I started at the beginning I would like to keep going to get through them all. :) I know I am just a goofy. :)

Melissa: It's actually been a really long time since I read anything by Raymond Feist. I remember enjoying the Daughter of the Empire books and I think I read The Riftwar Saga, though when I recently tried to read Magician I found it a little boring and didn't get too far. Though I think I want to try some of his other books as well.
