Internationally bestselling author Raymond E. Feist proves once again why he is the master of epic fantasy with RAGE OF A DEMON KING, the third volume in his Serpentwar Saga. Finally, ultimate war has come to the Kingdom - and all life is in peril.
Erik von Darkmoor has trained well and fought valiantly in the service of the Prince - and has risen up through the ranks to become a respected leader of men. Though still young in years, both he and boyhood friend Rupert "Roo" Avery - one of Krondor's preeminent merchants and one of the Kingdom's richest men - have been aged by experience. And each has an essential role to play in the cataclysm that is to come - as has every warrior, tradesperson, thief, spellweaver, spy, royal, and subject alike who stands to lose far more than life alone to the invading forces of darkness.
Because swords, bows, and lances will not be enough to defeat the true agency beyond the woe and destruction that has been unleashed upon their world. For a demon king has
escaped a world already devoured to feed on one consumed by chaos and
war. A foul and terrifying thing, a nightmare creature of dark and murderous
nature, it seeks to own and corrupt the very source of life itself. And soon
more of its dread kind will follow - unless the most powerful sorcerers in the
embattled realm can close forever a demon-spilling rift... and unlock a mystery
far more dangerous and profound than anything ever known before.
And thus the final conflict is joined, pitting serpent against man and mage against demon - a furious clashing of swords and spells that rages from open sea to dank sewer to the farthest corners of reality. For those who stand for Midkemia, there is victory or there is doom. There is no other outcome.

Rage of a Demon King is the third book of The Serpentwar Saga. In my opinion Rage of a Demon King is a readable book, but it's not as good as some of the previous books (Rise of a Merchant Prince and The Riftwar Saga books were much more enjoyable books). This book can be recommended to fans of Raymond E. Feist. If you like Feist's books, you'll probably like this book.
