Magician, available in ebook for the first time, is a masterwork of magic and adventure.

The whole of the magnificent Riftwar Cycle, by bestselling author Raymond E. Feist, is now available in ebook

The world had changed even before I discovered the foreign ship wrecked on the shore below Crydee Castle, but it was the harbinger of the chaos and death that was coming to our door.

War had come to the Kingdom of the Isles, and in the years that followed it would scatter my friends across the world. I longed to train as a warrior and fight alongside our duke like my foster-brother, but when the time came, I was not offered that choice. My fate would be shaped by other forces.

My name is Pug. I was once an orphaned kitchen boy, with no family and no prospects, but I am destined to become a master magician…

Magician is the first book in Raymond E. Feist’s acclaimed Riftwar Saga. The trilogy continues with book two, Silverthorn.


“Epic scope… vivid imagination… a significant contribution to the growth of the field of fantasy.”

  • Absolutely brilliant!

    By Devilman5able
    Stumbled across this by accident while looking in related search for another book, thought "why not?" To this day I'm glad I did. A memorable tale filled with wonderful characters. I'll be sure to look for the rest of the riftwar cycle!!!

    A totally enthralling read that covers a wide range of emotions. Kept me up many a night eager to know what happened next. Thoroughly recommend it to read. Cannot wait to start book two...
  • Great book but buy the set instead

    By Mj62mj62
    The set is the same price as one book. So buy the trilogy!
  • Truly a 'ripping yarn'

    By Awesomecadk
    This book deserves 5 stars simply because of how engrossing it is. It is a big book, by anyone's standards, yet I was hooked and intrigued the whole way through. There are just so many good things to say about this book. If you want a fantasy series that will intrigue you and pull you into a new, fascinating world where grand dramas play out across lifetimes and nations try this book. I promise you won't be disappointed.

  • One of Greatest

    By SammytheHand
    This book and those that follow in the series are some of the greatest books I've read in the Sci - Fi section. Raymond E Feist is without a doubt an incredible writer and if you love this genre then his books should be on your physical/digital shelves.
  • An absolute must read

    By Blade -)-----
    Simple really..reading this book should be on everyone's bucket list. A well written masterpiece and work of literary genius. Would that all books were written as well as this.
  • Fantastic!

    By BigBriHull
    Wonderfully written and well executed. There is so much depth to the characters their different cultures and worlds. There was a great sense of pace and timing which left me hooked! I only had one issue with the book and that was Feist's over use of "pug said, Thomas said, Martin said" but despite this it didn't detract from the quality of the writing very much. Big thumbs up I will be reading a lot more of his work, not to mention the next two books in this trilogy.
  • The best fantasy series by far
