    I always rave about Robin Hobb books. For me, she has the strongest voice in the epic fantasy genre at the moment. Her plots are expertly crafted and well-drawn out, as I’ve said before, except this one has been a very long time in the making. The ending I’ve been waiting many years for has finally arrived. To call it emotional would be to evoke a drastic understatement. Ever since Assassin’s Quest I knew it would end this way eventually. ...

    What can I say about the conclusion to the series that has dazzled me for years (becoming my all-time favorite) other than: wow.Assassin’s Fate was beautiful, terrible, and profound. I savored each page, painfully aware it might be the last time I experience this world. I’ve never been as emotionally invested in a story as I was with Hobb’s work, her writing draws you in so completely that you forget yourself for a while, totally at the mer...

    The folks at Voyager know I am a fan of Robin Hobb and were kind enough to send me #4 of 50 in this limited edition of Assassin's Fate.Why the fuss? Well, this book is the conclusion of a twenty-two year journey (over fifty years in book time) through the world Robin Hobb has created. The protagonist who has led us in that journey is Fitz, the assassin mentioned in the title (and the apprentice mentioned in the title of the first book, Assassin's...

    I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review..soooooooWow! Just wow!Given this is the last book in Fitz and the Fool's story I won't be going into details as it would just end in spoilers for all. But suffice it to say I enjoyed it immensely!Parts of it were repetitive at times, mainly in regards to Bee's storyline, and I was left with many unanswered questions in the end (who knows maybe the story will continue on! *c...

    Thank you Robin Hobb.I can't lie. There have been tears. What a wonderful gift this series has been and what a wonderful final episode.All strands were connected and interwoven in such an amazing way. Did Robin know how she wanted the story to end up all those years ago when she wrote the Assassin's Apprentice? It boggles my mind. I also found it slightly strange as well as delightful to see the worlds of the Elderlings and Kelsingra combine with...

    (Sin spoilers).(Esto es una reseña general de la saga; el libro no es tan bueno como otros).Tengo 22 años recién cumplidos. Esta saga tiene 20. No puedo decir que transité toda mi vida junto a Fitz, Nighteyes y the Fool. No puedo decir que crecí con ellos y me formé desde mis primeros años junto a sus aventuras y desgracias. No tengo esa satisfacción literaria, interna y casi personal. Comencé a leer la saga cuando tenía 19 años. Cuand...

    Wow. I finished this over the weekend, and I am still struggling to find the right words to convey what a massive emotional impact it had on me. Assassin's Fate is everything I could have asked of Robin Hobb - an entirely satisfying conclusion to not just the story of FitzChivalry Farseer, but that of the entire Realms of the Elderlings and all its interconnected works.This is a book of Farseers, Fools, White Prophets, Liveships, Dragons, are mor...

    Having followed the story from the beginning, Assassin's Apprentice, to here I was so nervous, waiting for this to come out. Turning the last page of the previous book my heart hit a wall. How could it end there..... well, it didn't. I produce the UK cover art for Robin's books, and I knew this would be the third in the trilogy, and the cover art would have to be the best I'd done. Robin fed me a short piece of the book when I asked her about the...

    Okay...I finished it... I REALLY didn't want to finish it, because I just *hope* it's not the end of everything in the Realm of the Elderlings. This has easily surpassed all the other fantasy series I have ever read for my favourite of all time (I'm including all the Realm of the Elderlings books in that) and as such it's so deeply part of my reading that I don't know if I could objectively review just this book. Hobb's world by this point is com...
