      Thanks my Amazon account always has issues with kindle deals.

      Play books also presented me with $5 off any purchase over $5 so just spent $0.99 for this set.

      •  

        Mine was $5 off an audiobook, not an ebook.

    •  

      Thanks! I had some credit on Google Play I wasn't using so this worked well

    •  

      haha.. thought I'd go play store option as I had some credits unused but I already have it. Must have been when you could use Telstra Credit and I stocked up on Ebooks before they killed the option to buy stuff with the credits

    Iirc, the second and third books are unrelated to the riftwar though..

    • +3 votes

      I'm in between the third book and I think it is related as the riftwar brought the enemy

      •  

        Ah yes. so kinda related. Book 2 wasn't though..I think.

        • +1 vote

          Don't want to give any more spoilers, but the enemy did appear on book 2 :)

    •  

      Totally related, especially if you read the Daughter of the Empire series after the 3.

  •  

    I've read the whole series and the related ones as well. Not a bad read!

    Very good trilogy. You guys should read it!

    The problem with this ebook is you can’t see how dogeared it gets from loving it so much.

    Read this series 30 years ago. Remember them being very good.

      I'm hoping the Empire series goes on sale as well. It was through that I found the Raymond E. Feist series.

        The Empire Trilogy was on sale back in May for $3.99. I've got 6 Feist collections (Riftwar Saga, Empire, Serpentwar, Riftwar Legacy, Conclave of Shadows and Darkwar Saga) for <$6ea now :)

    This was the series that got me into reading, probably read a 100 books since. Definitely a gateway drug. Thoroughly recommend.

      Similar for me. I was introduced to Magician when I started uni (about 17/18 yo) and it got me back into reading after the year 12 burn out.

      Since then I've read a crazy amount of fantasy and sci-fi series'. It's been a couple of years since I sat down with a novel so it seems fitting I re-read this series for the 8th time. 👍

    Thanks, just what I needed.

    Another recommendation from me. Still have the paperbacks and now ebooks, read the whole series 3 or 4 times in the past 20 years.

    Also, available through Apples e-book store in their Books app for the same price.

    This series is recommended. I normally don't like 70's, 80's and early 90's fantasy books but this series certainly holds up.

    And so is the empire trilogy (https://www.goodreads.com/series/44298-riftwar-cycle-the-emp...) by feist… which I remember was pretty awesome.

    Sepentwar saga trilogy is ok and a couple of the other middle books in the riftwar cycle .. but then the last few trilogies become very repetitive. I remember it was self inflicted torture)

    I vaguely remember 'Magician' being comprised of two books - Apprentice & Master … do they just include both in the one edition?

      Yep

        I think they were originally one book, but sometimes published as two separate ones (for more money)

      Magician is currently free to read for Amazon Prime members as well - I've added a comment to the original post.

      When it first came out it was 1 book. Then it was released again as a special edition with like 100 extra pages or something. Then they split the books into 2 since it was like 100-1200 pages and the words were kinda stupid tiny. I only have the first 2 versions, never got the split version.

    I think this series had more of an influence on my reading than Harry Potter did. It is worth the hype.

    •  

      And is original unlike JK's plagiarizing.

      •  

        To be fair, every author has influences from prior works.

    Yeah, best fantasy trilogy ever. I've bought and destroyed several hard copies of each. About time for the Ebooks methinks.

    Loved Magician but the later two were pretty blah I thought.

  • +1 vote

    Magician was the first book I read that was over 200 pages. I was NOT a reader. But that series made me one. Its brilliant. Please read it.

  • +3 votes

    The Empire trilogy by Janny Wurts is a far more interesting and engrossing trilogy. Still holds up incredibly today, and Magician gives it a bit more backstory.

    Mara was a female protagonist that was believable and learned from her mistakes, made difficult decisions, didn't adopt masculine traits that Hollywood is so fond of, and relied on her intelligence, cunning, and sometimes just dumb luck to defeat her enemies.

  •  

    I remember reading Magician for the first time when I was 8, made me love this kind of fantasy

  •  

    Good series, Have paperback versions so wont bother with the Kindle version. Been looking at a new paperback version as mine are very dogeared but they are REALLY $$$

    Wish they'd make this into a TV series like GoT, some really original ideas in here too.

    i was collecting the paperbacks before i moved, and i realised i have to spend a decent $400 to get the new ones.. :(
    now waiting for a really good deal to get all of them.. what made it worse is that the publications have different book size dimensions and it looks really untidy if i don't get the same ones.

    the below would help new readers of these series on which books to read/get first. :)

    How can I buy this for someone else? Can we send as a gift to others with a Kindle?

  •  

    I wasn't a massive fan of Magician (sorry please don't hurt me). Does it get better??

    •  

      no worries. it does gets better, at least from my point of view. the character development i think takes a while and there are quite a few books to go through.

      it's been 20 years since I stopped at the end of krondor series (went on to discover the games and etc). i think it's worth getting through it.

    •  

      If you weren't a fan of the Magician you probably don't want to try and push on to the very end. It is a long way to go to get there, so high risk.

      •  

        Agree with this too, if you really dislike magician then probably no point wasting time if you have other things to read.
        I can only relate because at that point in time when I started magician, I was spoilt for choices as I have terry brooks and Robert jordan.

  •  

    I re-read the series every few years. Takes quite a long time to get right to magician's end now that it is all done. A combination of this series as well as both The Belgariad and the Elenium series by David Eddings are what originally got me into reading.

    Often not particularly complex, I find them an enjoyable read to relax.

    Anyone have suggestions on other similar series and authors?

  •  

    Magician is a cracker of a book.

  •  

    Just finished reading Magician again, such a great book. I've got a 20th Anniversary hardcover edition tucked away still sealed in the plastic.

  •  

    Feist is the best.
