In a distant land, high among the snow-capped mountains, a peaceful nation is mercilessly put to the sword...yet one will survive. Little more than a boy, Talon of the Silver Hawk must carry on until, someday, he can take vengeance.
Leaving the icy vastness of his ancient home, Talon descends into the dangerous land of his adversary. Treading a perilous path, he must survive battlefields, court intrigues, treacherous enemies, backstabbing friends, and beautiful yet deadly women to discover the evil responsible for the annihilation of his people.

Raymond E. Feist is the multiple New York Times bestselling author or coauthor of thirty previous books—all but one of which are Riftwar Cycle novels. He lives in San Diego.From Booklist :
A prolific purveyor of solid conventional fantasy launches a new Midkemia saga, Conclave of Shadows. Kieli, a young boy of the mountain-dwelling Orosini, is the sole survivor of a massacre of his people by ruthless mercenaries. From a bird that visits him when he thinks he is dying, he takes the name Talon of the Silver Hawk, and re-enters civilization with a vague notion of destiny and the grimly focused aspiration to avenge his people. As he matures, he is drawn into the arms of a good many women and even farther into the machinations of the sorcerers of the Shadow Conclave, headed by Pug and Miranda, old friends to fans of previous Midkemia sagas. Talon learns that he has both human and magical foes, and he becomes a deadly swordsman to function in the role of one of the conclave's agents. By the end of this book, he has achieved at least one of his goals but faces a whole new set of perils that begins with swearing allegiance to the formidable duke of Olasko. Further volumes in Talon's tale are to come from other accomplished fantasists, including S. M. Stirling and Joel Rosenberg, so the prognosis is highly favorable for continued good reading for dedicated Midkemians, many of whom could start with this book that stands well alone and is noticeably smoother reading than a goodly portion of Feist's other work.
