Midkemia: The Chronicles of Pug by Raymond Feist

The world of Raymond Feist is beautifully depicted in Midkemia: The Chronicles of Pug (available from Harper Voyager £20) an illustrated deluxe compendium, complete with maps, character drawings, and first-person narrative text.
“‘In the first year of the reign of King Lyam conDoin, I, Pug of Crydee, magician to the royal court and cousin to the King by adoption, do take quill in hand and set forth this writ, that all may benefit from the knowledge I have gained…’ – Pug of Stardock
So begins the narrative account of Feist’s best-selling character, Pug of Stardock, for Midkemia Atlas. Part travel log/journal and part atlas, this visual compendium brings the world of Midkemia to illustrative life.
Starting at the Far Coast, the Pug, the hero of The Chaoswar Trilody, recounts his childhood, before he embarks on a journey that takes him to the Grey Towers, Sorcerer’s Isle, and Krondor. Pug also encounters several favourite characters and people along the way – including Jimmy and Locky, the Sauur, and Erik and Roo in Ravernburg.”
