Return now to a kingdom in constant peril; a land magical, scarred, and wondrous, where great heroes rise up from adversity to battle fearsome enemies who covet the riches within its borders.

Feist — one of the world ‘s preeminent fantasists — continues his extraordinary Riftwar Legacy with a sweeping tale of conflict, trial, and grim necessity, as the forces of good join together to staunch the golden lifeblood flowing from the pierced heart of Midkemia.
The vile sorcerer Sidi plans to strike the kingdom a fatal blow, setting his creature, the murderous pirate Bear, upon the high seas in pursuit of the vessel that is transporting Midkemia’s most holy object: It is from this miraculous stone that all magic power is believed to flow. And if the Tear becomes the mage’s trinket, the future will hold naught but terror, death, and unending night. For Squire James, Lieutenant William, and the able magician Jazhara, the race is on to rescue the remarkable artifact from the bloodthirsty, unpredictable Bear and his despicable master who would use it to bring catastrophe down upon the world.
But it will take greater-than-human swiftness. And the flight of her most peerless defenders will leave Krondor more vulnerable than ever to the terrible ambitions of the depraved. For the mysterious criminal known as the Crawler is preparing to wreak bloody havoc to fulfill his dastardly secret agenda.
Once again the sewers of Krondor teem with assassins and monsters as the hour of destiny nears. The fate of an imperiled world is in flux, as all manner of dark creatures are gathered for one unspeakable purpose: Book Three of the Riftwar Legacy gets off to a fast start, as pirates attack the ship Ishap’s Dawn in order to steal the Tear of the Gods, a sacred magical gem being transported in the ship’s hold.
Bestseller Feist’s latest action-adventure fantasy focuses on renewed trouble in Krondor, ruled by Prince Arutha, who’s assisted by his loyal squires, William and James, and the new court mage, a Keshian sorceress named Jazhara.
News of the Tear’s disappearance comes on the heels of a seeming jailbreak, the destruction of the city’s orphanage and the razing of a tavern connected with the Mockers, the city’s official thieves guild. All seem linked to Bear, a crazed former pirate bent on recovering the Tear for himself and getting revenge on the partner who left him to drown in the wreck of Ishap’s Dawn.
Meanwhile Arutha’s nemesis, the Crawler, is once again at work seeding the land with unrest and fear. James and Jazhara lead the investigation, moving from Krondor’s sewers to the bleak cliffs of distant Haldon Head, overlooking the place where the Tear was lost and more than one ship has met its end. There they face an ancient evil with plans of its own for the Tear, and more than enough power to accomplish its desires.
The latest chapter in the Krondor saga is sure to please Feist fans and win new ones among readers who crave Dungeons and Dragons-style fantasy adventure. As the creator of the computer games Return to Krondor and Betrayal at Krondor and winner of Computer magazine’s Best Game of the Year Award, Feist will bring out the gaming crowd in addition to his already huge fan base on his city author tour for this novel; expect hefty sales.
Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc. When Krondor’s enemies gain possession of the powerful stone known as the Tear of the Gods, Prince Arutha sends his loyal followers to recover it, knowing that he may be sending his friends to their deaths or worse.
Based on the popular computer game set in his fantasy universe, Feist’s latest tale of swords and sorcery features scenes of magical mayhem and swashbuckling battles and should appeal to the author’s considerable readership. For most fantasy collections.

But the daring assault upon the Temple of Ishap goes dramatically wrong and the prize, the Krpndor of the Gods, sinks beneath the waves of the Bitter Sea. The most powerful artifact known to the Temples of Midkemia, this colossal gem allows the priests to speak with their gods.
Without it they are lost for a decade, until another is formed in the distant mountains. Squire James, William, and Jazhara must seek out the location of the gem, with Brother Solon, a warrior priest of Ishap, and Kendaric, the sole member of the Wreckers’ Guild with the power to raise the ship. But they are opposed by the minions of the Dark God, who seeks to possess the Tear for his own ends.
A breathless race for a priceless treasure, against time, myriad sinister and competing evil forces, and ultimately against the fundamentals of nature, which in Midkemia can be as formidable as the Gods themselves Mass Market Paperbackpages.

I think this is book 14 or 15, the end of the 4th or 5th series of books in the middle of the larger 30 book series. As I mentioned above, this is the final book in a series within a series.
Krondor: Tear of the Gods
This trilogy was based around vi Still awesome after all these books. Also, it takes place after the Riftwar but before several books farther along in the series that I have already read.
Well, basically, Feist took a step back in time after the Serpentwar saga to write this trilogy. And, since the fans of the series are most likely Riftwar fans, I am guessing he decide placing it in that time period made more sense. Some of the characters are ones you are familiar with from the Riftwar, but there are several new ones as well. The characters tend to be of a very specific type with certain skills — like you would pick at the beginning of a video game. The quests they go on seem to have a cavalcade of baddies ending with a big battle against the king baddie — just like in video games.
This book featured goblins, vampires, zombies, cursed amulets, sacred orbs, magic, swordplay, etc. I look forward to the next trilogy within the series to see where Feist takes me. I think it is a trilogy that takes place during the Riftwar, so we will be going even farther back in time! I just went to look for the next book in the series and this was not a trilogy like I thought, but actually a quadrilogy – Jimmy and the Crawler is next!

Krondor: Tear of the Gods: Book Three of the Riftwar Legacy
Admittedly, he was struggling with personal troubles at the time that he wrote it, and it’s based on a game, but regardless of the reasons, the book isn’t up to par. The narrative is excellent and keeps you reading, constantly being pulled back in to know what is happening, but the characterization is weak and the plo Feist was one of my favorite authors for some time; Price of the Blood remains one of my three favorite novels, but Tear of the Gods just didn’t live up to Feist’s usual standards.
The narrative is excellent and keeps you reading, constantly being pulled back in to know what is happening, but the characterization is weak and the plot rather contrived.
Fights taer up every other chapter, and they all sounded the same after a while. Every time Jimmy steps forward to avoid his opponent’s jab, and it’s written as if we haven’t already read that same trick three times.
Three minute wrap up with a dozen loose ends. I sped through the book, then set it down feeling simply let down. If you’re the type who wants to make sure you read every book by REF, grab this. Otherwise, I’d advise that you keep krlndor for something else. Dec 26, Scott rated it really liked it Shelves: So this is my 27th Riftwar Cycle book so you could say I was a fan. The main character is Jimmy the Hand which just so happens to be my favorite character in the series.
Hmmmmm What are the chances I’ll like this book? It’s a stand alone novel. More adventure than fantasy. The Tear of the Gods is being transported – pirates try to steal it – doesn’t work out that well for anyone involved Add in evil wizards, s So this is my 27th Riftwar Cycle book so you could say I was a fan.
Add in evil wizards, skeleton warriors, vampires, witches. Mix together and you’ve got a pretty fun fantasy adventure novel. Is it going to change the world?
Nope Is it fun as hell? Yup This one had a lot of fights and battles and testosterone You shouldn’t read this unless you have at least a working knowledge of the series but otherwise I’d highly recommend this book – it’s a good way to spend some time.
Jun fo, Robert rated it did not like it. The worst book in this trilogy. Feist repeats krindor of times that the events occurring are totally unrelated.
Okay, we get it, you didn’t bother to create a story line for this one.
Feist continues his habit of writing horrible sentences in this book. He really needs to get a good, and forceful, editor. The circular orb glowed brightly. William’s eyes were two large circles. Circle around to the other side! Fill the pages with red an The worst book in this trilogy. Fill the pages with red and have the guy rewrite it.
