This was really great, just what I needed now. Great world building, characters, and a twisty-turny plot with a real climax. It is a bit slow starting, but from about halfway it is a real page turner. There is still plenty left that is still unexplained, so onto the next one! Took me out of my reading slump. โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ

TheSpineView I loved this book too!๐Ÿ’œ I have already read the 2nd one and will continue on. I liked some of the characters but I was not drawn to any of them. I think Fritz could have been so much more had been given the chance. Yet, in ways he was a better person for not growing up privileged. 3mo
Gezemice I am so sorry for your loss. Sending you my deepest sympathies. 3mo
Gezemice I have just finished it and loved it! @daena @TheSpineView I am going to read on, too! There is plenty to be left to explore, we only scratched the surface of The Skill, The Wit, and the mysterious repell thing that I am not sure if is a third thing or not. It was a page-turner and I loved the doublecrossings at the end. 1. I did text mostly but had audio as well when I was doing chores. (edited) 3mo
Gezemice 2. The characters are well described but we don‘t really get too close to them, this is mostly plot driven. I wonder why Burrich has such a distaste for The Wit - there is something in his past. 3. I think his closeness to Burrich and animals is why his upbringing was in the stables and it might not have been an accident. 3mo

My first ever Robin Hobb book, this was a slow burner but well worth the read. RH has a very distinct writing style that took me a few chapters to get my head in gear but by the end was thoroughly enjoying. Characters and world were well built and the story was engaging. Look forward to reading the second in the trilogy. Photo is unrelated but couldn‘t go without one, This is the family‘s attempt to draw Rousseau the dog.

I swear I havent forgotten about you guys! Life has been...very trying this year. I had two job changes, a whole lot of stress, some family emergencies and now another medical emergency with my boyfriend's father that is looking bleak. Right now I can barely stand do anything for longer than a few hours, including reading.

I‘m so glad I finally gave this book a shot. The writing is great - it‘s a bit slow, but it sets up an interesting world and character. I‘m a big fan of having a protagonist with some flaws, and Fitz definitely makes some mistakes along the way that add to his growth. I look forward to continuing the series.

Since Elizabeth Haydon's Symphony of Ages series not a real lot has scratched my fantasy itch with anything even approaching true satisfaction. Happily the high hopes I had for this author were all met with aplomb. Top notch writing - simple, precise, thoroughly absorbing, so easy to read (& so hard to do!) Plot was a slow builder, a gradual immersion that was nonetheless very engaging. And then the final section of the book - cont. below โฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธ

Prior to joining Litsy in the fall of 2016 I regularly watched booktube. Robin Hobb is an author who has been on my radar since then & now having finally read her, I can say the hype is real. Yes, there is a George RR Martin blurb on the front, but don't expect Grimdark. Hobb gradually builds her world up, & although there are moments of high drama (Forging anyone?), this is all about the characters & their choices, a coming of age. I LOVED this!

TrishB Best fantasy ever. 6mo

So glad I finally read this - a great world to get lost in for a week. Fitz is a bastard child to a prince in a bustling kingdom where his existence is a threat to some and a source of hatred from others. In order to survive he has to navigate through a whole host of characters and politics. I can see this making a great tv series as it‘s almost episodic, multiple challenges he faces within a larger character arc. I completely loved it ๐Ÿ˜

First of a trilogy, which is itself just a small part of the Hobb universe, and concerns Fitz, the bastard son of a Prince of the Six Duchies, his boyhood and youth and his training as the King's assassin. There's two distinct systems of magic, intrigue, loyalty, and betrayal and the writing and characterisation is way superior to many fantasy novels. I can see some might find it a little slow-moving but I enjoyed it a lot.

Thank you Littens you were not wrong in recommending this! I really enjoyed it, but I‘ll admit I didn‘t expect to as I didn‘t think fantasy writing was my thing. I love a book where the writing is so good there‘s nothing that niggles at you, or annoys you or makes you question what‘s being said. I just enjoyed being thoroughly immersed in the story, despite it starting very slowly. I‘ll definitely read the rest of the trilogy ๐Ÿ’›

Just finished «Assassin‘s Apprentice» by Robin Hobb the other day, and it was all I wanted it to be.
โ€ข
It‘s a slow-paced, character-driven, classical epic fantasy, about a bastard boy thrown into a world of magic and political conflict, and his coming of age.
โ€ข
If you like the Lightbringer or Mistborn or Kingkiller series, chances are you‘ll fall for Farseer too.

Can't believe it took me this long to finish this book! I have to admit that I didn't find it unputdownable, one of many reasons it took so long, but I'll definitely read the other books in the series!

TrishB The first is definitely the slowest! But the series is well worth pursuing. 10mo
MommyWantsToReadHerBook @TrishB thanks for the encouragement! 10mo

The Fool is one of the MCs in this series (pic is the first trilogy) non gender specific and Hobb writes them alternating as female/male in different books. Subject to endless discussion on fan forums.
One of my fav fantasy characters in my fav series.

TrishB @Lizpixie the first one is very slow. It‘s a bit like getting past The Gunslinger....but so worth it! 11mo

While this book starts slow, once it hooks you it really hooks. Love the way the book flows, keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Really liked this one! Am jumping right on the second in the series. Quietly enjoying these days that seem to go by much too quickly. Here's a picture of the moon beam and his Dada looking over some cliffs. Luckily it was a relatively warm day. Before this, he got all wet from splashing at the beach and we had to peel his soggy pants off. :) I love that unexpectedly, he clambers into our laps and plants kisses on us. โ™ฅ๏ธ Don't grow up too fast!

Ashley85 Beautiful picture! 12mo

I've loved Robin Hobb's books since I was a teen and they are still my comfort reads. If you like your fantasy rich in detail and full of complicated characters, you'll love her books!
