Here starts an adventure that will span lifetimes and worlds. Discover where the story begins. Raymond E. Feist is an internationally best-selling author. My name is Pug. I was once an orphaned kitchen boy, with no family and no prospects, but I am destined to become a master magician….
War is coming to the Kingdom of the Isles from another world, bringing with it chaos and destruction.

Awesome story.

Magician is a brilliant store and I really enjoyed listening to it. But the Narrator desperately needs to work on his pronunciation of names of characters and places. eg: Arutha has a 'th' in it and is pronounced A-ruth-a not Arooter.

Good story, slow reader.

but its bossible to turn up the pace. I used 1.10 speed and then listening was better.

A classic fantasy adventure

This was a thoroughly enjoyable return to my younger days and a genuine classic of the fantasy genre. It's the first of a three part series but reads very well as a book in its own right. That might be useful for anyone thinking 36 hours is commitment enough!

The characters are well portrayed in not one but two richly detailed worlds as fate brings two very different civilizations into conflict.

Highly recommended for anyone interested in the genre and Feist is more accessible that some of the authors that followed him.

disappointing

What would have made Magician better?

Narration is very poor. Stuck it through to end but between the clunky performance and some of cruder personality developments was disappointing

Would you be willing to try another one of Peter Joyce’s performances?

been said by other reviewers Peter does not do a very good job of the dialogue, distracting is nicest thing I can say.
