Publisher's Summary

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. Pug yearns to train as a warrior and fight for his kingdom alongside his foster-brother, Tomas, but instead he is forced to follow a different path: a path that will lead him right into the heart of the enemy. And one that will change the course of the war - and two worlds - forever. So begins the most epic series in fantasy fiction, a tale that will cross worlds and generations. Magician is the first book in the Riftwar Saga. The trilogy continues with book two, Silverthorn.

It's been a long wait but we finally have this book on Audio. Overall, I don't mind Peter Joyce but he has no business attempting high-pitched feminine or elven voices. And I was a little disappointed in his choices for character accents. E.g. The Tsurani were Roman in my mind, but he gave them an oriental accent.
There were some editing mishaps in the last couple of hours: pauses in dialogue that make you wonder if we've moved on to the next scene.
As for the story, it's hardly as I recall but I enjoyed it none the less. I like the way it moves quickly, not dwelling unnecessarily. There might be a few too many characters, nothing that a handy character map couldn't assist with.

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.
