Assassin's Apprentice
Assassin's Apprentice: The Farseer Trilogy | Robin Hobb
Young Fitz is the bastard son of the noble Prince Chivalry, raised in the shadow of the royal court by his fathers gruff stableman. He is treated as an outcast by all the royalty except the devious King Shrewd, who has him secretly tutored in the arts of the assassin. For in Fitzs blood runs the magic Skilland the darker knowledge of a child raised with the stable hounds and rejected by his family. As barbarous raiders ravage the coasts, Fitz is growing to manhood. Soon he will face his first dangerous, soul-shattering mission. And though some regard him as a threat to the throne, he may just be the key to the survival of the kingdom. Praise for Robin Hobb and Assassins Apprentice Fantasy as it ought to be written . . . Robin Hobbs books are diamonds in a sea of zircons.George R. R. Martin A gleaming debut in the crowded field of epic fantasies . . . a delightful take on the powers and politics behind the throne.Publishers Weekly This is the kind of book you fall into, and start reading slower as you get to the end, because you dont want it to be over.Steven BrustFrom the Paperback edition.

I last read this twenty years ago, and honestly, I remembered that I loved it but not much else about it. It deserves every bit of hype that it has ever received. It is a wonderful book that had me guessing, fretting, speculating, and flat out worrying about Fritz, the protagonist, well past the end. In fact the 2nd book is going to get bumped and read rather quickly now as well. This is a fantasy masterwork. Full stop.

I really really love the paperback editions of this trilogy! The pretty script and gold touches on the covers are so so lovely! 😍📖 I did however save my original mass market paperbacks of this trilogy even though they're falling apart, because I am really attached to them!

vivastory I agree that the new editions are so eye catching! The first time I saw them I knew nothing about them but was curious bc of the cover 8mo
Branwen @vivastory Right?! There's just something so beautiful and elegant about them! 😍 They really command your attention! I ended up replacing the first three trilogies with these paperback editions! With the other two series, I actually like the mass market paperback editions more, so I kept them as is! 8mo
tokorowilliamwallace Hopefully I'll get to these and find some more thrifting. Currently still in the middle of the 9th one (as introduction to the author and series) I found at an airport bookstore because I was tempted by the thickness. 8mo

🌟🌟🌟🌟. It‘s been awhile since I‘ve driven into some high fantasy. Excellent old school world building with characters to love or not. The magic is a bit underwhelming at this point, but being only on book one, I‘m sure I‘ll learn more. If Dickens were to write a fantasy, this would be the one.

blurb
DanaR

I finished this up last night. What a great read! The ending to book 1 felt a little rushed or incomplete, but that is probably intended due to the events that happened (Fitz isn‘t all-knowing!). I looooved the depth of descriptions. I read the illustrated version of the book, which was nice to “see” some of the characters. The artwork was very well done. I‘ll be picking up the next in the series as soon as I finish up another book or two.

I know I should be reading something from my TBR, but I‘m currently re-reading these 2.
MOBY in preparation for Bees, as I need a refresher on what‘s happened.
Assassin‘s Apprentice just cos I want to. I finished the RotE series a few months ago and I just miss the characters. Robin Hobb is amazing. I‘m loving the re-read, it‘s so good picking up on all the little intricacies now that I know the characters well and what‘s to become of them.

#thoughtfulthursday

1) I 🖤 them... especially if it's not immediately apparent they are unreliable. I'm quite easy to fool because I'm quite trusting (I.e. gullible) 🤣

2) I 🖤 my new Eddie the Bookworm bag.

3) I'd usually say Poirot or ASOI&F, but I've been thinking about Fitz and the Fool today - I still have the second trilogy to look forward to! Highly recommended.

Kindle tells me that I‘m 43% through the book, and I am already enthralled with the storytelling. An interesting world that you learn about bit by bit through the eyes of a boy. I already see myself picking up the next book as soon as I can.

MaureenMc I‘ve heard good things about Robin Hobb. Fantasy? 12mo
TrishB Wonderful series. 12mo
DanaR @MaureenMc Yep! So far I‘d call it low Fantasy, no different races or wizards, but there have been hints, so I might be wrong! 12mo
MaureenMc @DanaR I‘ll have to add that to my TBR. I‘ve found fantasy to be more enjoyable than Sci-fi, although I know sometimes there‘s a very fine line between the two, so 🤷🏻‍♀️. 12mo
DanaR I agree! My mind doesn‘t want to pick apart fantasy, but I find lots to pick apart in sci-fi! 12mo

I never should have put off reading Robin Hobb for so long! I've believed for years that she writes inaccessible high brow fantasy books but having seen a fair few booktubers tackle this series last year and watched their reviews I began to think that maybe that perception is wrong. And it was!

I ate this book up! I love a family saga and basically thats what this is, but in a fantasy world.

Loved it.

I read the Mad Ship trilogy a few years back and found them brilliant... Also enjoyed the rain wild chronicles. I guess this trilogy didn't quite meet my expectations... Although really good in terms of the world created and connecting with all of the characters, I felt it quite drawn out and it took me really long to finish. Glad I read them though!

This one does character so well that I thought the other parts of the story would fall flat but they don't. I usually struggle with books longer than 200 pages but this one had me. Plus big excite for where the Fool's story goes, because I was told, not spoilers, but things that encouraged me to start on the trilogy in the first place.

Or even a chapter a day if time small goals and will get through it.

5 ⭐️

Every detail in this book was amazing. It hooked me from the first page. It wasn‘t a high fantasy novel. But I love a set up where the character is an underdog and eventually becomes the Hero. Fitz‘s story from his childhood has been told so beautifully by Hobb, it‘s like reading an autobiography. A fine balance between fine writing and an entertaining story!

Bastard son of royalty, shunned by all. He‘s raised to be a royal assassin. He has a magical bond with animals. His only friend is the Royal Fool. Enemies are out to get him. We all know one day he‘s going to have to save the kingdom! I love this kind of fantasy adventure. Hobb is such a great world builder and creates such well rounded characters that I just love to dive into his books.

I had to quit this book, I‘ve heard so many amazing things about this series and the author but I had to give up.

There just wasn‘t enough action or excitement for me, it felt slow moving and too political. I found myself thinking back to the book I had read previously to this one which wasn‘t a great sign as to my enjoyment for this book

Book 1 of The Farseer Trilogy. Loved it! So much fun! I feel like this book only scratched the surface of the saga that is to come.
After reading The Liveship Traders Trilogy I was super keen to further explore this world, especially the Six Duchies, of which we only got the tiniest tease of in Liveships.
I‘m already so fond of Fitz. Can‘t wait to see what he gets up to in the next book.

I know it‘s three trilogies, but to me it‘s a series! I can‘t find enough superlatives for this series. These are not all action fantasy, there is a great story but it‘s all really about the characters. I have cried many times reading these. And the ending of the last book, if my series yesterday had one of the worst, this had one of the best, but ugly cry best 😢😢 you can see what‘s coming but it still breaks your heart.

Birdsong28 It still counts as I will be showing The Manhattan series by Sarah Morgan soon and that is as set of 2 trilogies but they have characters that are all connected and are mentioned in all of the books even if they aren't the main character in that particular book. 2y

Thank goodness for daughters! My lovely 19 year old made this bingo card for #bookspinbingo for me. Getting ready to start the tagged book for #bookspin.
I‘m really looking forward to this month. Thanks Sarah @TheAromaofBooks for all you do to make reading more fun! 💛💛

TrishB You have a treat in store with the tagged book 😁 (edited) 2y
Bklover Good! Getting ready to start it now! @TrishB 2y
TrishB Hope you like it, it‘s slow and descriptive at first, but the start of a wonderful book journey ♥️ 2y

KatieB That‘s an impressive bingo card! Does your daughter take commissions?! 2y
Bklover @KatieB She said heck yeah, lol. I spent about three hours this morning trying to put this together and she came in and threw it together in about twenty minutes. She used PicCollage for the bingo card part and PicsArt for the rest. (edited) 2y

Pickpick

This was so good. I'm probably the last person to find this so I'm not going to bore you with details. But it's a trilogy and I'm definitely going to read the next one.

This was the illustrated edition and the artwork is gorgeous.
