Review: Assassin's Apprentice, Robin Hobb

Featured book:

Author: Robin Hobb

Title: Assassin's Apprentice

Book 1 of the Farseer Trilogy

"In a faraway land where members of the royal family are named for the virtues they embody, one young boy will become a walking enigma.
Born on the wrong side of the sheets, Fitz, son of Chilvary Farseer, is a royal bastard, cast out into the world, friendless and lonely. Only his magical link with animals - the old art known as the Wit - gives him solace and companionship. But the Wit, if used too often, is a perilous magic, and one abhorred by the nobility.
So when Fitz is finally adopted into the royal household, he must give up his old ways and embrace a new life of weaponry, scribbing, courtly manners; and how to kill a man secretly, as he trains to become a royal assassin."

  1. I read Robin Hobb's Farseer Trilogy many years ago. I still remember how the characters felt very real. I was impressed with the way the characters grew during the course of the books as they struggled to overcome problems, and how they really suffered and grew as people.
    The story had good depth and never lagged. I'd recommend the Farseer Trilogy to anyone who hasn't read them.
