About this deal

At first, I thought I would really like her – I loved how much she cared about music, how she knew what she wanted and pursued her dreams with absolute ferocity. Under Hobb's name on the cover there's a line "author of x" that changes from "Royal Assassin" to "Ship of Magic" to "Fool's Fate" between printings. An unabridged audio book edition by HarperCollins Publishers Limited the 30th of August 2012 with ASIN: B00943C87C, length 37 hours 39 minutes. Her husband Fred continued to fish Alaskan waters and was home only about 3 months out of every year. The group encounter a road leading to a ruined city, both constructed of a black stone imbued with Skill.

While Fitz's narrative continues in The Tawny Man Trilogy, the Liveship Traders Trilogy is next in the chronology of the Realm of the Elderlings. I mean I always hoped that Verity would come to their rescue bringing the Elderlings with him and then we find him carving a dragon out of stone. There are so many things that didn’t work out for me that if I was to list and explained them all, it would be spoilers and it would make this review extremely long.

Like I wrote in one of my status updates, the entire book (and trilogy) is about failure after failure after failure. For me, 5 is average, and I still think this book has some things to offer readers, especially as a continuation of the great first two books. I’ve read Assassin’s Apprentice several times by now, and imagined him completely wrong every time 🙈 Still, at least his personality was consistent with what I’d imagined, and, just like always, I was cackling over all his inappropriate jokes and the way he went out of his way to embarrass Fitz 😁 In general, I just really loved seeing his bond with Fitz developed more.

The conclusion was also full of deus ex machina that it made the 500 pages of traveling not satisfying.She raised her family, ran a smallholding, delivered post to her remote community, all at the same time as writing stories and novels. Something must be wrong with me 😂 But then again, university started this week, and I need to make the most of being able to read and blog until the first homework assignments that will need grading start to trickle in! Fitz and Nighteyes are joined by Starling, a minstrel, and Kettle, an old woman who is seeking the White Prophet. Their friendship is everything and it made me so sad when Nighteyes decided to go his own way for a while. Besides the fact that a handful of characters have died, one could just turn the time back to the beginning of Assassin’s Apprentice, and it would be a rather similar ending to the one delivered here.
