Publisher's Summary

The demon has been defeated and the Kingdom rejoices as the threat to the existence of every living thing on Midkemia has passed, but out of the ashes of war new problems arise, in the brilliant sequel to Rage of a Demon King…The demon is no more…The enemy has been routed, yet peace still eludes the Kingdom. Midkemia lies in smouldering ruins following the Demon King's siege. Many lives have been lost, including that of the brave James, Duke of Krondor.
As the people turn their hands to rebuilding their once great nation, a new threat arises from the ashes of war: the fearsome Fadawah, former Commanding General of the Army of the Emerald Queen. He has grasped the fallen reins of command and seeks to forge a personal empire out of the wreckage of the Western Realm. And so it falls to two young men - Jimmy and Dash - grandsons of the late Duke, to gather together the shards of the broken crown and resurrect the Kingdom to its former glory.
Shards of a Broken Crown is the fourth and concluding book of the Serpentwar Saga.

Slow start, but classic Feist, a must read

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The entire series is incredible, The characters are so strong you cant help but love them all.

What other book might you compare Shards of a Broken Crown to, and why?

The other Fiest books.

Have you listened to any of Peter Joyce’s other performances? How does this one compare?

In my personal opinion Fiest nails it and brings so much personality to the characters especially Nakor

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would listen to them all in one sitting if I could

Any additional comments?

Despite a slow start and a bit of "politics" a strong middle and great end, would get 5 stars if there was more action but that's my personal taste there is no questioning the story and performance.

Mr Feist is the master of this genre and Peter Joyce is superb. What a combination. Fast pace, excellent characterisation, great story lines which flow from book to book.
