Ok. So I finally finished book 3 of The Farseer trilogy and it was a lot. This time out Fitz is on a quest to find Prince Verity and aid Queen-in-waiting Kettricken in first hiding, then retaking the throne. Along the way he continues to fail at assassining (don't look at me like that, it's totally ...

“When you try your best but you don't succeedWhen you get what you want but not what you needWhen you feel so tired but you can't sleepStuck in reverse” - ColdplayThere is a kind of trope in epic fantasy where the Chosen One gets angry at being chosen, at what he has to sacrifice for the global bene...

...But sometimes I didn't really love what the story did to the characters. Still, we're talking about an epic quest that includes magic, swords, and (eventually) dragons. The writing is flawless. The good guys are noble and you want them to win. The Bad guys are evil and you want them to get thei...

I love the characters but not the story by this third book. It has a rushed ending and doesn't really complete the original plot from earlier books. Not sure if I will continue... This took too long to get through.

I am always left a bit dumbstruck after reading these books. The characters are so vivid and their stories so compelling I have to go through a grieving process to come to terms with the fact that the book is done.My only preoccupation, in this case, is that the ending seems quite... final. And, con...

After finishing Assassin's Quest, I was left wondering how after two good books this could was given to readers to finish up the Farseer Trilogy. Following Fitz's journey to regain his humanity then seeking vengeance against Regal and then journeying to find Verity has all the prospects of an exciti...

An excellent conclusion to the Farseer Trilogy. A long read with much of the action occurring in the last few chapters. Fitz and his companions set out on a quest to find Verity beyond the Mountain Kingdom.'Had I been truly a wolf, I would have lifted my nose to the sky and howled. As it was, I reac...

I had to mull on this for a day before I could decide how to review this, because I did so love it (and the entire trilogy) but I am pretty harsh on giving out those 5 stars. I just couldn't find anything worth knocking off even a half star here, so, there you go. So first a brief summary: After t...

You can see my incoherent comments on the first book here and the second book here.So we open Book Three with Fitz pretty much practically DEAD.Or... y'know:That's just how fucking bad things have got for Fitz.The thing that's kind of telling about this first trilogy is how short it is. I mean short...

I very rarely give only one star; it feels melodramatic, especially since I gave Royal Assassin five. But after the quality of the first two books in this trilogy, I was shocked and appalled by this one--and, what's worse, I was bored. In this book, Fitz leaves Buckkeep and all of the other characte...
