About the Book

From legendary author Raymond E. Feist, the first installment in an epic new series that will join his acclaimed Firemane Saga with his signature Riftwar Cycle in a riveting, conclusive adventure.

 As worlds collide . . .

Hatushaly, last scion of the Firemane dynasty; his beloved Hava, and their dubious friend Donte have been transported across space and time from their war-torn world of Garn to the relative peace of Midkemia.

There, on Sorcerer’s Isle, under the guidance of the great magician Magnus and his reincarnated father Pug, Hatu will explore and expand his unique magical abilities: for if Garn is to be saved, they will be needed.

With the evil Pride Lords defeated, the Church of the One has risen to bring death and destruction to Hatu’s home world. The kingdom of Ilcomen has fallen, and now the Church is sending forces to Marquensas, where Daylon Dumarch has declared himself king, and master swordsmith Declan Smith finds himself suddenly raised to the status of prince and war commander.

But there are even greater menaces than the Church of the One waiting in the wings, beings from the Void, creatures born of Darkness. . . 

Critical Praise

“This is a true hero’s journey. . . . I had unbelievably high expectations for Master of Furies and I’m so glad it lived up to them. With [Feist’s] signature worldbuilding and masterful storytelling, this is sure to quench your epic fantasy thirst.” — Booktopia

“A delightful wrap-up to the epic saga.” — Booklist on Master of Furies

“Feist displays his mastery of epic fantasy in this impressive second installment to the Firemane Saga… Feist fans will recognize his hallmarks here—quiet moments of a common life interrupted by sweeping battles, and high seas journeys to distant continents. Fantasy readers of all sorts will appreciate his command of both subtle characterization and vast, panoramic story. This is a knockout.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Queen of Storms

“A hard-hitting, heartbreaking second novel of The Firemane Saga…Feist takes us on a wild and perilous ride.” — Grimdark Magazine on Queen of Storms

“Feist is back on top of his game in this series. . . .A delightful fantasy novel, full of simple magic, fighting, political intrigue, and religious strife.” — Booklist (starred review) on King of Ashes
