A Kingdom Besieged

| | ,

Many previous trilogies depicted the unity of the empires because foreign enemies were invading the land one after the other. For a long time there has been no outside interference and this allows the old enmity to rise once again. Great Kesh once dreamed of getting hold of all of Krondor but that dream perished when their attack faced men like Pug and the defenders known as the Conclave of Shadows. Keshian Empire once again wants to fulfill that old dream and for that purpose it starts gathering armies on the western border.

Not only this the kingdom of Kesh has started killing the spies of Krondor and their might me some traitors in the empire that are helping them. Raymond E. Feist  makes another hero rise from the family of Prince Arutha and he along with his men goes to the borders to settle the dispute. It is the same thing that Prince Arutha did but the problem is that he had a large army and Martin conDoin is left with a group of amateurs.

Thus the result would not be the same as the enemy means business this time and Pug too is feeling weak in front of the invaders this time. The great magician Pug has faced foreign invaders too but never ever he has looked so weak. It was Pug who lead the war from the front in Rides a Dread Legion and At the Gates of Darkness but now he thinks that there power is not sufficient. There is less energy in the voice of the old heroes and John Meagher depicts this through the narration. Martin alone can change the course of war this time if he stands tall like Prince Arutha.

    1. I sure don’t like the new INTRUSIVE ads you introduced today….and I’m sure nobody else does either.

    2. Continuing: Obviously you are aware there is a very long list of great websites died because of intrusive ads. (Myspace, Sulekha to name but two large ones). Absolutely I have enjoyed your site; yet permit me some speculation as I am ignorant of the mechanics of your platform. Other book sites not only attract authors but justify publishing entire books because of the handicapped. Authors are more interested in access for the handicapped than enforcing rigid restrictions (paid units). Clearly there are other reasons, but this is a “biggie”.

      The new intrusive ads are by far more difficult to navigate (if they can) for handicapped visiting. I realize that you MAY be testing (largely because you initiated wholesale and multiple changes. Therefore, I am sharing my input. I think most of us can live with your first addition of a second box ad. However secondly you tried the restrictive box, that cut off the stream, within 48 hours you modified that with a timer and that is better, but it still is too intrusive as it forces the handicapped to hunt for their place. The same is true of the latest intrusion of not advancing the chapters. This also makes it VERY difficult to navigate. Kudos as today you seem to have reverted back to advancing the stream (in chapters). A better option is a ten or 15 second ad that advances the stream….45 seconds is way too long. It is rare that a site introduces more than one (ahem) “improvement” at the same time, you might want to do a longer test one at a time.
