King of Foxes: Conclave of Shadows: Book Two
Raymond E. Feist
Eos, Apr 2004, $24.95, 400 pp.
ISBN: 0380977095

Tal Hawkins the last of the Osoni people completed the first step in his plan of revenge with the destruction of the on sight leader of the massacre, the odious mercenary Raven (see Talon of the Hawk). Now Tal sets in motion part two with his plan to destroy the individual responsible for ordering the carnage, Kaspar, Duke of Olasko.

However, getting close enough to destroy the nefarious Duke will mean somehow gaining the duke's confidence that Tal is a loyal supporter he can count on to do whatever it takes even leading new massacres. Tal assumes his soul was exterminated when his people died so though he has some pangs of conscious concerning innocents becoming collateral damage, he ponders a way of getting near enough to kill Kaspar.

Raymond E. Feist readers will appreciate this powerful fantasy that showcases a different area of the author’s world than Midkemia as much of the action occurs in the volatile Eastern Kingdoms. Tal’s vengeance still remains the center of the story line and he remains a torn protagonist knowing that he will kill innocents to get at his target. The support cast is incredible, as they add to the understanding of the world and its hero–villain depending on one’s perspective of Tal). These secondary players are so complete several could have served as the center of their own novel especially the assassin Amafi and Kaspar. Feist fans will be in frenzy with this exhilarating action packed fantasy tale peopled with great characters.
