  • Jim
    Wow, again. As a guy, I sometimes have trouble connecting with a female main character, but not in this case. While Mara is about as distant from me as can be, she's a fantastic heroine & I hung on every word of the fantastic writing. My emotions bumped right along with her situation. Again, I stayed up too late reading & hated to put the book down. The ending was perfect. The trilogy could have easily stopped on this book, but there is another &...

    Often in trilogies, there occurs what is known as the "second book" syndrome, where the universe is no longer shiny and new as it was in the first book, but not as exciting as the climatic third book, and mostly exists as a bridge between those two, providing important set-up, but not feeling as exciting. Servant of the Empire, I am glad to say, does not have this problem. Despite having crossed the first hurdles to her rule, Mara still has many ...

    Following on from Daughter of the Empire, this book expands on Mara's task of consolidating the position of House Acoma. with the wealth gained from the silk trade she buys Midkemian slaves to cultivate her land and further increase her wealth. One of them is , unknown to her, a noble in his own land. Naturally she falls in love with him etc, etc, etc. I'm afraid that I found the love story between these two contrived and a little embarrassing . ...

    Στο πρώτο βιβλίο αυτής της τριλογίας η αγαπητή μας Mara δεν τα κατάφερε και άσχημα, σε αυτό το δεύτερο, όμως, τα πράγματα γίνονται δυσκολότερα καθώς ισχυρότεροι αντίπαλοι μπαίνουν στο παιχνίδι και παίρνουν την κατάσταση στα χέρια τους εξαπολύοντας...

    This is the second book in the Empire Trilogy by Raymond E. Feist and Janny Wurts. I really enjoyed the first book. I loved how a young and innocent girl was thrust into the deadly games of politics where any wrong move could be met with her death as well as the death of her loved ones and shame for anyone associated with the name of her family the Acoma. In book one Mara is 17, becomes Ruling Lady of the Acoma facing powerful enemies with only 3...

    Servant of the Empire is book two in the fabulous Empire series. In it we get back to Mara's story, but this time there is an important new player in the form of a Midkemian slave called Kevin. This book made me realise how strange a reread experience of a beloved book can be, as I found myself avoiding the book as I got nearer to a major confrontation at about a quarter of the book into the story, because I remembered something awful happening t...

    The second in the series was definitely a page-turner, even more than the first. It saddened me to see that only this trilogy was made by the two. If the potential of Feist-Wurts could be explored further, I believed that they could match the partnership of Weis-Hickman.It was alike and different from the first in many ways. All the main characters in the book returned, a great addition was Kevin, a prisoner of war turned slave by tradition of th...
  • Kate
    The intertwining of events from Magician into this book is what makes it so brilliant. Mara's acquisition of Midkemian slaves, including one Kevin changes her life and her way of thinking. Kevin's view of what to him is inexplicable and sometimes downright bizarre Tsurani culture allows Mara to break out of the strictures imposed by her upbringing and gives her a definite advantage in the Great Game.The politics of this book are fantastically int...
