Robin Hobb returns to her best loved characters in a brand new series. Tom Badgerlock has been living peaceably in the manor house at Withywoods with his beloved wife Molly these many years, the estate a reward to his family for loyal service to the crown. But behind the facade of respectable middle-age lies a turbulent and violent past. For Tom Badgerlock is actually FitzChivalry Farseer, bastard scion of the Farseer line, convicted user of Beast-magic, and assassin. A man who has risked much for his king and lost more...On a shelf in his den sits a triptych carved in memory stone of a man, a wolf and a fool. Once, these three were inseparable friends: Fitz, Nighteyes and the Fool. But one is long dead, and one long-missing. Then one Winterfest night a messenger arrives to seek out Fitz, but mysteriously disappears, leaving nothing but a blood-trail. What was the message? Who was the sender? And what has happened to the messenger? Suddenly Fitz's violent old life erupts into the peace of his new world, and nothing and no one is safe.

About the Author

Robin Hobb is one of the world's finest writers of epic fiction.She was born in California in 1952 but raised in Alaska, where she learned how to raise a wolf cub, to skin a moose and to survive in the wilderness. When she married a fisherman who fished herring and the Kodiak salmon-run for half the year, these skills would stand her in good stead. She raised her family, ran a smallholding, delivered post to her remote community, all at the same time as writing stories and novels. She succeeded on all fronts, raising four children and becoming an internationally best-selling writer. She lives in Tacoma, Washington State.

Reviews

'In today's crowded fantasy market Robin Hobb's books are like diamonds in a sea of zircons' George R. R. Martin 'Hobb is superb, spinning wonderful characters and plots from pure imagination' Conn Iggulden 'Hobb is one of the great modern fantasy writers... what makes her novels as addictive as morphine is not just their imaginative brilliance but the way her characters are compromised and manipulated by politics' The Times 'Robin Hobb is without question among the two or three finest writers of fantasy working today' 5 stars for Fool's Assassin, SFX 'Fantasy writers don't come much bigger than Robin Hobb' Independent

As always, I found Robin Hobb's writing unexpected and immensely fulfilling. I truly did not believe that Fitz's story could be continued without compromising the essence of the first books, but I was wrong. I will admit that the story was a tad slow for me to begin with, but the conclusion more than made up for this and I now find myself wondering what in the world I am going to read - without being disappointed - whilst waiting for the next book to be released!
