About this deal

Unless Fitz can find Verity and help him in his quest, the Six Duchies will perish and there will be no safe place to live. No matter how much he seems to love Fitz, as long as it would serve his purpose and his king, he would still sacrifice my boy in the blink of an eye! Nothing much happened; we got no real answers as to the history of Elderlings or the Red and White Ships. my reading resolution for this year is try to complete the many series i have started but havent finished.

I had to skip this review, but your raving most definitely would’ve made me add this series to my TBR if it hadn’t been on there already! breathes fire* And yet, still despite everything that happened, despite all the things they would have done to him without even batting an eye, Fitz still would have given his LIFE for Verity’s dragon!It is a shame because while the story is about Fitz, there are important side characters that have been built up over the previous books, and now don't get the storytelling they deserve, especially considering this is the finale.

A 4 star means I'm probably in trouble with my editor for missing a deadline because I was reading this book. In the previous books, I just thought he might be a bit pale and weird, but still figured he was human. And Kettle was interesting, but most of her backstory was info-dumped on us all at once… I really think there were quite a few missed opportunities there! Those very some of the best in the entire trilogy and why I think I still loved this book more than Royal Assasin. Step into the spellbinding finale of this modern classic of epic fantasy, replete with adventure, magic, treachery, and sacrifice, along with ten full-color illustrations by Magali Villeneuve.Are you sure you aren’t mixing this up with another series or commenting on a different review than you meant to? The villain, Prince Regal, remains a bit of a frustrating mystery and the final resolution, though good, was a little glossed over. Some of Hobb fans warned me that this is one of her weakest books, I sincerely hope it’s truly the weakest because I don’t think I can bare through another book like this. A US paperback edition in 2014 with cover art by Alejandro Colucci to match the US design of Fool's Assassin with ISBN 9780553565690. Originally published in hardcover and in slightly different form in the United States by Bantam Spectra, an imprint of Random House, a division of Random House LLC, in 1997"--Copyright page.

strange to say the least, but they definitely have some of the most compelling scenes that break up the intense monotony of Fitz's travels. However, this series is still one I would highly recommend to any fellow high fantasy lovers out there, especially to those of you who like your stories to have a good mix of character-drivenness, world-building, and politics.The sequence ends in an emotionally charged battle of words that scatters our heroes onto their own separate paths. 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. Assassin's Quest was everything that I hoped it would be, Fitz is a great character and by making him far from perfect Hobb makes him more identifiable.
