909 words - 4 pages

"Shadow Of The Dark Queen" by Raymond E Feist, which is part of the "Serpent War" series, is the book I'm doing my book report on. The cover of this book shows a man in steel armour wearing a helmet with horns, sitting astride a brown horse, over looking a burning city with thick black smoke in the distance. The initial impact presents that the man in armour is something of a leader, or the main character, but either good or bad, he is observing the city burning, and the reader doesn't know if it is with joy or sorrow.The main characters are Erik, Roo, Calis and Miranda.Erik is the bastard son of a noble, who hasn't acknowledged or denied him. He grew up in a small town, living with his mum in a small inn, and the owner Milo and his daughter are basically father and sister to Erik. Since he was 10 years old Erik has been working as the smith, because the real smith was continually drunk 5 out of 7 days.

Calis has inherited a fraction of the magic of a long dead race from his father Tomas, who due to tampering of a great magician, has merged with a long dead powerful being. The Elven Queen, Calis' mother, is several hundred years old, give or take a few. Calis' birth was meant to be impossible by the elves' standards because of Tomas's heritage.Miranda is an enigma, and is the daughter of the most powerful magician, who is known as the Black Sorcerer who tampered with Tomas, making him who he is today. Miranda is mysterious and not a lot is known about her.The basic storyline is a bit hard to tell because it is interwoven with about 20 different books and you would have to read at least seven of the series to acquire a small understanding of the story. Simply, Midkemia is a continent that has magic, elves and dwarfs as well as humans. Due...
