Flight of the Nighthawks by Raymond Feist is the first book in his latest sage titled The Darkwar Saga. In order to fully appreciate the events of this book, and understand the names of countless characters that are merely mentioned, I think any reader should start at the very beginning of Feist's writing. That would mean starting with Magician: Apprentice and working your way up the story line. I realize there are a lot of books, and some better than others, but as a reader - you will get much more out of it that way.

With that being said fans who have kept up with the story, many names and faces will be familiar. Mr. Feist does a good job at blending old characters, Pug, Nakor, Kaspar etc with some new characters Zane and Tad to name a few. However, even though Mr. Feist adds new character perceptive readers will realize that while the names are different, the `character' is largely the same from previous books. Zane and Tad particularly stick out, and I am almost positive other readers will agree with that. While that may, or may not (depending on your views) be the case the characters in this book do have some character development thrown in for good measure. Some characters who you would expect to progress are rather stagnant, but other characters have a flurry of development. The majority of the character development is solid, and it is quite evident that (for some characters) there are bigger and better things planned for them. Overall, I found the characters solid, is, at times, rehashed versions of previous characters.

The plot of this book is clearly a larger set up for a future `big event(s)' Mr. Feist has some big things planned for these characters and allows the plot to slowly unfold. Fans of Mr. Feist will find a familiar feel to this novel. Its flow and pace are typical Feist, and I mean that in a good way. It lends itself to being an easy read, but one that also covers a lot of ground. However, much like the characters, at times this plot feels like I have read it before from Mr. Feist. There were no less than three instances where I knew what was going to happen in this novel, simply because I had read it before in a different novel from Mr. Feist. I usually don't have a problem with a slightly repeated plot, but from the same author and with the same outcome - is a bit much.

There is no question that Mr. Feist is a very good author. I have enjoyed the vast majority of his books. In particular the first two books in the Riftwar Saga were simply fantastic and I would recommend them to any fan of the fantasy genre bar none. While there have been some bumps in the road to the Darkwar Saga, I would still count Mr. Feist as one of my favorite authors and I fully intend to read future books from him. Never-the-less, I feel I would be remiss if I did not express a little dissatisfaction with the rehashed plot points and the couple characters. This simply could be Feist not being able to live up to my high expectations of him. However, I think there is some validity to my minor criticisms.

With that said, if you are a fan of the fantasy genre then I firmly believe you need to give Mr. Feist a shot, but as I said in the opening, start at the beginning and you will be more happy and have a fuller appreciation of his world, characters, story and just overall quality of his novels. I would still recommend this book to fans. I don't think it will disappoint even the hardened fans. There is something in it for everyone. Just make sure your expectations are tempered a little. All in all a good read.

I've read and enjoyed nearly all of Raymond Feist's books. Through his sagas, he's created a rich and deep world, with tons of interesting characters, compelling stories, and great interactions.

In a lot of ways, the Darkwar Saga's opening act is no exception. Finally venturing deep into Kesh for an extended story, this tale gives new life to a portion of Midkemia that maybe was not quite as fleshed out in my mind at least. And I actually admire the fact that Feist has been able to introduce yet ANOTHER "greatest threat ever to face the world" for yet ANOTHER trilogy, and do so in a way that actually seems plausible rather than just a tacked on addition to sell more books.

But I find myself in this series more than ever reminded of how Feist's books just don't develop new characters the way they did in the past. The strength of the book is on the interactions of characters that were introduced and fleshed out in what many would call Feist's prime...the Serpentwar and Riftwar Sagas. Pug, Nakor, Miranda, Tomas...these are the characters that got me excited when I got to a section detailing their contributions.

The new characters in this book just don't get the same treatment anymore, and they feel shallower for it. It makes me glad that he made several of my favorite old characters (like Pug and Tomas) effectively immortal so that I can keep enjoying them on and on and on.

All in all, I still find this a solid effort. To say it's not as good as Magician is not a huge insult...that book was fantastic. The story was still a page-turner, and it did contribute to fleshing out the fantastic world of Midkemia. But there was still that part of me that looked back while reading this book moreso than others, and regret that at least some of the magic is fading.

This book by Raymond Feist is very much part of his normal formula for books. His books tend to focus around the creation of young male characters and how they develop their talents to move the world in there own ways. Feist continues the adventures in the fantasy world of Midkemia with visits from some original characters and various other characters that have appeared in his other works. Pug makes another appearance as well as Nakor to continue Feist's exploration into the balance of good and evil.

This book is just a plain fun fantasy book. If you have liked Feist's other works you will most probably like this one as well. I did find this one to be less worthy of praise than his others works. Magician was by the best of the books produced and the Serpentwar Saga was probably the best series, this just doesn't stand in the same league.

I have been a fan of Raymond E. Feist, reading the Magician series when I was younger, but I didn't continue reading as he mad more books. I picked this book up, and I was able to enjoy getting back into this series.

The author has not failed yet to provide a great reading experience. While I believe I may have read this book in the series out of the recommended order the storyline fell right into previous books. New characters were added, old character remained and a very good story was told. For those reading the Riftwar series this is highly recommended.

I've been slowly slogging through Feist's entire catalog in what I've been informed is the chronological order, and I really enjoy his work. There have been one or two books that were a bit of a mission to finish, but I really enjoyed the first Darkwar bush and its return to Kesh. It displayed some of the Keshian intrigue that made 'Krondor's Sons' so enjoyable, and ended on a dark and mysterious note that instantly saw me buy the next book

Not quite as good as the riftwar saga yet, but given that 'Magician' is probably my favourite novel of all time, the comparison is a little unfair.

A good addition to the story thus far, already well into the next installment.
