THE SECOND VOLUME OF RAYMOND E. FEIST'S GREAT EPIC OF HEROIC FANTASY
For nearly a year peace reigned in the enchanted kingdom of Rillanon. But new challenges awaited Arutha, the Prince of Krondor, when Jimmy the Hand – the youngest thief in the Guild of Mockers – came upon a sinister Nighthawk poised to assassinate him.

The new King of Midkemia is threatened – and a life-or-death quest must be undertaken for an antidote to a poison that fells a beautiful Princess on her wedding day…

Silverthorn is the second book of The Riftwar Saga. In my opinion Silverthorn is clearly the best book of The Riftwar Saga. This book is a lot more fluent and more entertaining than the first book.
