That was a fun story that had me turning pages - especially in the second half of the book. This is a classic fantasy story, with a bit of magic mixed into a medieval world setting. I thought it took just a bit too long to really get going, but I couldn't stop turning pages toward the end. The st...
Alright Everybody Settle Down and Listen to Me Yell
Hahahaha. Okay, good start, good start. The first Realm of the Elderlings book! The one that started it all! Baby Fitz, already fighting against more pain and tragedy than most people ever experience! The Fool when he was just really weird and disconcerting and not really BFFs with Fitz yet! Kettri...

Young Fitz is the bastard son of the noble Prince Chivalry, raised in the shadow of the royal court by his father’s 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 Fitz’s blood runs the m...
SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady
This read was somewhere between 3.5 and 4 stars. Robin Hobb doesn't tend to info dump, and I really appreciate that; it can be more common than I'd like in fantasy and science fiction. It also can be very common in historical fiction, alas! I hate "As you know, Bob" Syndrome, but it's not a prob...

Fifteen year old me would have LOVED this book. Forty year old me is both pickier and lazier. Fitz is a very appealing character, all tra...

4.5 Stars, Buy it I won this paperback via goodreads. This book really pulls you in and keeps you there. This is the story of Fitz, a prince’s bastard child. Fitz is basically raised by the Prince’s stable person (Burrich). And while at first you don’t really like Burrich, toward the end of the ...

This was one of those books I bought on a whim while it was on sale awhile ago. I am very happy I did. This book is an excellent start to a fantasy series. It didn't have the blood and extreme sex, and violence of most of the fantasy series I've read this year. It just had a solid story that I reall...

by far one of my favorite books and one i return to multiple times. a truly wonderful book with characters you'll love. Robin Hobb crafts a well worded and interesting world filled with magic, swords, assassins and a fool. I received my copy thanks to goodreads giveaways

I was excited to read Assassin's Apprentice, the first book of the (seemingly) universally loved epic fantasy stories by Robin Hobb. I enjoyed it, but found it a bit slow for my lazy brain. I suspect that this first story is mostly a setup for the future books--there were MANY topics touched on, b...
