This week’s book recommendation is The Magician by Raymond E. Feist. The book originally was published in two parts. Magician: Apprentice and Magician: Master. I first discovered this book when I was about 15 years old. I’d found a copy that had both parts in one (I didn’t know about it being two parts for years).
It’s a great adventure that follows a young man by the name of Pug as he inadvertently becomes the apprentice of a magician and proceeds to become one the most influential people ever within his universe. I want to say more, but I don’t want to spoil anything.
The series, titled The Riftwar Saga, has four books with The Magician being the first. The entire series spins an incredible story. Just trust me on this one. The fact that I’m struggling not to spoil anything right now should be an indicator about its ability to draw you in. Anyway, the four books of The Riftwar Saga tell an amazing story. Then there are several other books that progress the story even further and follow different characters. So, if you love the main book(s), there are more to keep you going if you are someone who likes to dive into a series. The entire collection is called The Riftwar Cycle. The Saga being the core books. I’ve read only a few books that followed the Saga. I’ll admit I haven’t read the entire Cycle, but I enjoyed every book I’ve read that is a part of it.
