Description

'Fantasy as it ought to be written' George R.R. Martin

Robin Hobb returns to her best loved characters with the second volume in a brand new series.

Happy endings never last…

Years ago, they freed a dragon from the glaciers on Aslevjal. Then they parted ways, the Fool returning to far-off Clerres, while Fitz finally claimed a wife, a family, and a home of his own.

Now, betrayed by his own people and broken by torment, the Fool has made his way back to the Six Duchies. But as Fitz attempts to heal his old friend in Buckkeep Castle, his young daughter Bee is abducted from Withywoods by pale and mysterious raiders who leave ruin and confusion in their wake.

Fitz must find a way to rescue his beloved Bee. At the same time it is the Fool’s fiercest wish to return to Clerres with the best assassin he has ever known, to gain vengeance and justice.
Can Fitz bear to take up the tools of his old trade again, even to avenge his dearest friend and save his child?

Reviews

‘Robin’s secret is not just in the detail with which she depicts the Six Duchies world she has explored over 20 years, but her emphasis on internal drama… the feelings of anguish, ambiguity, fear and failure are as familiar as those in a novel by Jonathan Franzen’ Independent on Sunday

‘Glorious and beautiful storytelling from Robin Hobb’ SciFi Now

‘Hobb seamlessly blends intrigue, action and characters who feel so real that they become more than words on a page … Every second spent in her world is a privilege and a pleasure’ SFX

‘Robin Hobb’s Fitz and the Fool series continues to delight’ Starburst Magazine

‘Another crowning career achievement in the lifetime of one of fantasy’s modern-day masters’ Fantasy Book Review

    I have re read the story before staring the 3rd book and it was like meeting up with friends again. I am with the characters, sharing their adventure and feeling their pain picturing the scenes clearly in my mind. Can't wait to start the next book to continue the epic tale.
  • Great read

    Once again I feel melancholy that this book is over. Just when I thought there wasn't much more that you could squeeze out of the characters, a whole bunch of surprises are sprung upon us, revitalising the story flow. Now it's me back to waiting for the epic conclusion.
  • Best Adventure

    Never have I read and devoured so hungrily a book. Throughout Fitz's story, across all the stories, I have been enraptured. For me it is my favourite so far! Chapter 8! Can not wait for the next one. Seriously though I can't!!!

    Although I thoroughly enjoyed this the latest in the actions of Fitz and the fool. I was expecting more involvement with the character Bee Farseer and the hereditary magic she should possess. So my conclusion was that, Robin is teasing us with this story and it leaves one thinking the story could hypothetically cascade into endless directions. As you read you feel drawn to write along with robin and drive the story to your own feeling that this iconic hero that Fitz has become lost in direction by the mishaps he encounters. I also believe that reading the books in a specific order could lead you towards differing viewpoints . I don't think anyone could criticise Robin as her story unfolds, after all it's her story. She leaves you craving for the next adrenaline rush however the story unfolds. She could have spent many lifetimes exploring the avenues,these characters could Journey upon and still leave you wanting more. This work is so good and even though it's not perfect, that does not matter. In the overall view of an averagely educated reader , which ever direction your taken on by the story you know in your heart your in for a thrilling, emotional journey, across the spectrum of Central nervous system stimulants. So very addictive ! When's the follow up ? I want it yesterday !!!
