Feist has created an entire world, a richly imagined medieval realm of princes and priests, soldiers and soothsayers. The story begins at Crydee, a frontier outpost in the tranquil Kingdom of the Isles, where a humble orphan boy, Pug, is apprenticed to a master magician.
And the destinies of two worlds are changed forever. Before long, the apprentices emerging powers have produced two miracles and won Pug a Dukes favor and a Princesss heart. Suddenly the peace of Pugs homeland is destroyed as mysterious alien invaders swarm through the kingdom, and Pug is chosen for the coming conflict. But for Pug and his warrior friend, Tomas, a destiny of other worldly, mind-expanding adventures into the unknown has only just begun.To Tomas will come a legacy of savage power from an ancient civilization. Put is to be thrust into the strangest adventure of all: he will be snatched through a rift in space, taken prisoner, and granted the unimaginable powers of a strange and new magic. Finally the destiny of two worlds will be placed in his youthful hands. In the tradition of J. White, MAGICIAN is a memorable feat of imagination, an epic tale of fantasy and science fiction, and a provocative allegory of the modern world.
From the rear panel of the dust jacket. AS THE TROLLS ENTERED THE WATER , a flash of light exploded behind Pugs eyes.A searing pain ripped across his forehead as letters of fire seemed to appear in his mind. They were familiar to Pug, from a scroll that Kulgan mouthed the incantation, each word vanishing from his minds eye as he spoke it. When he reached the last word, the pain stopped, and a loud roar sounded from before him. He opened his eyes and saw the two trolls writhing in the water, their eyes wide with agony as they thrashed about helplessly, screaming and groaning. Somehow he had managed to cast a magic spell. Ex-library books must be noted as such since generally they are of little value to the collector of 1st editions. Condition is also very important to those collectors. Books and dust jackets must be described in detail. Mistakes can be made (and corrected), of course, but if you DON'T KNOW, don't try to sell a book as a 1st edition. An ABOUT FINE book in a NEAR FINE (or better) dust jacket. The book is tight and square in its black quarter-cloth and black boards binding with gilt lettering on the spine of the book. The book has the correct map of Midkemia endpapers. There is no writing in the book; no bookplates; no remainder marks. There are no chips or tears to the dust jacket. There is hint of a wrinkle at the upper portion of the spine of the jacket and there is a hint of a wrinkle at the lower left of the rear panel of the jacket; both wrinkles are largely unobtrusive. There is a hint of tanning to the rear panel of the dust jacket, but much less than is usually encountered. The dust jacket has undergone some minor archival restoration (mainly at the edges of the head and heel of the spine panel) that has been accomplished by a professional paper conservationist. The restoration is virtually invisible when looking at the dust jacket from the outside.
