‘Fantasy as it ought to be written’ George R.R. Martin

The kingdom of the Six Duchies is on the brink of civil war when news breaks that the crown prince has fathered a bastard son and is shamed into abdication. The child’s name is Fitz, and his is despised.

Raised in the castle stables, only the company of the king’s fool, the ragged children of the lower city and his unusual affinity with animals provide Fitz with any comfort.

To be useful to the crown, Fitz is trained as an assassin; and to use the traditional magic of the Farseer family. But his tutor, allied to another political faction, is determined to discredit, even kill him. Fitz must survive: for he may be destined to save the kingdom.


'What makes her novels addictive is not just their imaginative brilliance but the way her characters are compromised and manipulated by politics' The Times

‘Hobb is superb’ Conn Iggulden

‘Hobb is a remarkable storyteller’ Guardian

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.

    By John S Sharp
    I have read the likes of David Eddings, Margaret Wies & Tracy Hickman, R.A Salvatore and Sara Douglass. Surprisigly enough ~ I can honestly say this series beats them all. I have read thru it 3 times already and every few years I keep coming back again for more. Honestly if you appreciate fantasy novels, this is a MUST have for your collection. Enjoy :)
