Revue de presse

“[A] compelling and profoundly moving tale… an invaluable addition to a beloved canon.” (barnesandnoble.com)

Présentation de l'éditeur

In the frozen northlands of the embattled realm of Midkemia, fate can form strange alliances.

It is nine long, bloody years into the ongoing Riftwar that is tearing Midkemia asunder. Having survived a disastrous encounter with their sworn enemy, the Tsurani, Dennis Hartraft's cold, hungry, and exhausted Marauders arrive at a frontier garrison—at the same time as a Tsurani patrol. But a more devastating threat resides within the stronghold: moredhel, a migrating horde of dark elves so deadly and vicious that the only hope for survival is if bitter enemies band together and fight as one.

Now two hostile groups must make their way to freedom, facing a common foe, braving the merciless elements, and haunted by the voice of conscience demanding, "what is more important, a man's life . . . or his honor?"

Format: Broché
Feist nous a habitués à des aventures trépidantes, des personnages respectant un code de l'honneur ancré dans l'histoire de leur monde et tempérée par leur expérience. Si vous adorez ce concept foncez, ce livre est fait pour vous !
Malheureusement, son style est un peu trop sec dans ce roman, et la caractérisation des personnages un peu trop caricaturale. En résumé j'ai aimé l'histoire que "honoured enemies" raconte, mais j'ai été déçue par ce que Feist n'y a pas mis, c'est à dire la fougue et l'émotion présente dans tant de ses autres romans. Il y a presque trop de coïncidences et de vendettas pour qu'on puisse y croire.
Ce roman vaut cependant la peine d'être lu, pour la description inhabituelle qu'il donne de la situation politique au nord du royaume et les descriptions passionnante des tactiques de guerilla.

Même si ce n'est pas le meilleur de Feist, c'est une belle belle histoire, qui à mon avis s'intègre bien dans l'ensemble de son oeuvre. Un plaidoyer contre l'absurdité de la guerre, des personnages qui font de leur mieux pour survivre au jour le jour... quitte à s'allier avec leurs ennemis. C'est une histoire d'amitié improbable entre guerriers de Midkémia et Kelewan, avec de multiples références aux autres livres de l'auteur (notamment la Trilogie de l'Empire). Et c'est, je trouve, vraiment bien écrit...
Bref, j'ai aimé.

The BEST of the Legends of the Riftwar Series By Far!!! 24 mars 2006
Par The Mump - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I first read Feist's Magician upon receiving it thru the Science Fiction Book Club back in the 70's. I have anxiously awaited each and every book in the Riftwar series ever since! I was skeptical of the quality of this book in the Legends series as it is co-authored by another-William Forstchen. While not familiar with Forstchen's work, I have become completely comfortable with the quality of Feist's writing and assumed that co-authoring would impact the quality of the book. My fears were unfounded though, as this book is phemonimal-I could not put it down! The character development of both the Dennis Hartraft, the head of Hartraft's Marauders, and the opposing leader of the Tsurani patrol, Asayaga, is amazing. The comparison between these two leaders and the worlds that they come from provides valuable insight into the different cultures of both the Kingdom and the world of the Tsurani. This is a MUST READ by all Riftwar fans and fantasy readers alike!!

a solid offering that was a long time coming to these shores 26 décembre 2006
Par Joe Sherry - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Honored Enemy was originally only released outside the United States as part of the Legends of the Riftwar series that took place during and around the time of the Riftwar series. Feist was not able to come to a deal with his US publisher for more than 5 years until finally, the series is coming to the United States. First up is Honored Enemy.

Set 9 years into the Riftwar it features no characters we would know from the main series but instead tells of Hartraft's Marauders, a band of soldiers tied to Yabon, but with autonomy to operate behind the lines of the enemy and do as much damage as possible. The Kingdom men are fighting the Tsurani from Kelewan, but when a band of Moredhel (Dark Elves) pin down both the Marauders as well as a platoon of Tsurani under Asayaga, the enemies must join together in temporary truce or fall to the Dark Brotherhood.

I didn't expect much from this book. Feist's Riftwar Legacy, based on computer games, was rather bad and if it took five years to get published in the US how good could this one be?

Apparently, very. Honored Enemy is a strong story of two enemies working together through mutual distrust and cultural differences to stay alive. The story is told through the viewpoints of Dennis Hartraft, Asayaga, and occasionally from Borvai, a moredhel chief pursuing the humans.

Feist does well with collaborations as his Empire trilogy with Janny Wurts was very strong and this book with William Forstchen is also strong. There is good characterization and development of Dennis and Asayaga and the pace of the story is swift enough that we get past the fact that this is only a small episode in the scale of the Riftwar and features no major player. But it's a good story, perhaps even a ripping yarn which Feist so proudly told early in his career.

The Enemy of my Enemy is My __________? 3 août 2005
Par Matt Graubner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Again Feist has returned to the time of the Rift War, this time to nine years after its bloody beginning. Honoured Enemy is the story of two companies of fighters, both Kingdom and Tsurani that come together in the face of moredhel attack.

The books switches perspective frequently, for entire chapters at first, between the Kingdom commander (Dennis Hartraft) and the Tsurani Force Commander (Asayaga). However, this isn't distracting, but highly enlightening as we get to see both sides of the "conflict" and its evolution. I especially enjoyed the many allusions made to Tsurani society that could only come after the publication of the Empire Trilogy. Asayaga even muses over the murder of Mara of the Acoma's father and brother at one point, but believes that she is doing well, ;-).

Furthermore, as this book was written after the Riftwar Saga, but set during the beginning of it (before Silverthorn and Sethanon) it was possible for Feist and Forstchen to allude to future events, especially as we saw into the councils of the moredhel pursuing the humans. Enough is revealed incidentally that you have to read this book after the Riftwar Saga, not in the middle.

Even after they both flee the moredhel the Kingdom and Tsurani troops are constantly on edge, not sure if the enemy of their enemy is their friend, or merely their very temporary ally. As was Murder in LaMut, Honoured Enemy is a unique look onto the world of the Kingdom of the Isles. However, it was a most welcome divergent viewpoint, revealing much that Feist didn't have room to explore in the Riftwar Saga.

Great stuff 20 août 2005
Par RG69 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
As a huge fan of both authors, this was a nice collaboration. I hope this brings more attention to Mr. Forstchen's own fantasy/sf work which is way under rated. This is a great character driven story that frequently changes back and forth in perspectives which give real insight to the characters and the reasons for their actions and feelings. There are no end of the world, world shattering events taking place, just a struggle to survive and exist in a world that has seen terrible war. This is a gem in the Midkemia novels.

Meanwhile, Within the Northwestern Woods 9 juillet 2008
Par Arthur W. Jordin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Honored Enemy (2001) is the first fantasy novel in the Legends of the Riftwar series. This story is set in the northwestern woods of the Kingdom of the Isles after nine years of war against the Tsurani.

In this novel, Dennis Hartraft -- commander of the Marauders -- is looking over the site of their last ambush and mourning the death of his men. The Tsurani are all dead, but they may have sent a runner back before entering the killzone. The ambush would have been more successful if Richard Kevinsson hadn't exposed himself to the fleeing Sung priest. Then he had caused the death of Jurgen, an old friend and the last survivor of his estates other than himself.

Sung Father Corwin had actually betrayed the ambush. Fleeing from the Tsurani, he had noticed Richard and recoiled from his presence. His reaction had alerted the Tsurani, who then attacked the ambush. Now Father Corwin is conducting the funeral of eighteen Marauders.

Gregory -- a Natalese Ranger -- is the chief scout for the Marauders. His friend and partner Tinuva is an eledhel elf and is not really a Marauder. Yet he is probably the best scout in the Islander forces and Dennis doesn't want to lose him.

Force Commander Asayaga commands the reinforcements for the Tsurani besieging Brendan's Stockade. He receives his order late in the day and leads this men on a forced march to the fort. He wonders why his troops are being sent there, but figures that it is just another round in the Great Game.

Bovai is a moredhel elf and commander of the Clan Raven band of Dark Brothers. He has overrun Brenden's Stockade and killed both the Islander inhabitants and the Tsurani besiegers. Now he has set an elaborate ambush for anyone who shows up at the fort.

In this story, the Marauders approach Brenden's Stockade first and quickly learn that the Dark Brothers were responsible for the final slaughter. The Tsurani troops under Asayaga show up soon thereafter. Given the circumstances, they form a temporary alliance against the Dark Brothers and flee the vicinity of the fort.

Dennis leads the combined forces to the north. That way would take them to the moredhel lands, but it is the only way not covered by the superior numbers of Dark Brothers. The Islanders and Tsurani bypass a wall closing the pass and overwhelm the moredhel defenders.

The joint forces successfully resists the first attempt to take back the position and then rest overnight in the barracks behind the wall. Gregory takes Richard on a raid of the Dark Brothers forces and they kill a few trolls and a moredhel before returning to the barracks. Later, Gregory and Tinuva ambush some human mercenaries and capture two horses.

This tale provides backstory for the Riftwar. The characters in Magician play only a slight part in this volume. While the actions in this book are outside the purview of the main story, they are even more exciting.

This story is complete in itself. Other volumes in this subseries relate various aspects of the Riftwar. Enjoy!

Highly recommended for Feist & Forstchen fans and for anyone else who enjoys tales of small unit tactics, close combat and a touch of romance.
