Robin Hobb currently lives and writes in Tacoma, Washington, but that has not always been the case!Born in Oakland, California, she sampled life in Berkeley and then in suburban San Rafael before her family moved to Fairbanks, Alaska in the '60's. She graduated from Lathrop High School in Fairbanks in 1969, and went on to attend College at the University of Denver in Denver Colorado. In 1970, she married Fred Ogden and moved with him to his home town of Kodiak Alaska. After a brief stint in Hawaii, they moved to Washington State. They live in Tacoma, with brief stints down to a pocket farm in Roy, Washington, where they raise chickens, ducks, geese, vegetables and random children. Robin began her writing career as Megan Lindholm. Her stories under that name were finalists for both the Nebula and Hugo awards. Both "Silver Lady and the Fortyish Man" and "A Touch of Lavender" were Asimov's Reader Award winners. Perhaps her best known novel as Megan Lindholm is Wizard of the Pigeons, an urban fantasy set in Seattle Washington. When she began writing in a different slice of the fantasy genre, she adopted the pen name of Robin Hobb. Robin is best known as the author of the Farseer Trilogy (Assassin's Apprentice, Royal Assassin and Assassin's Quest.) Other works include The Liveship Traders Trilogy, the Tawny Man Trilogy, and the Soldier Son trilogy. The Rain Wilds Chronicles is a four part tale consisting of Dragon Keeper, Dragon Haven, City of Dragons and Blood of Dragons. A story collection, The Inheritance, showcases her work as both Robin Hobb and Megan Lindholm. A short story, Words Like Coin, is available as an illustrated e-book from Subterranean Books. A Six Duchies novella, The Wilful Princess and the Piebald Prince, was also published by Subterranean Press.In 2013, she announced that she would be returning to Buckkeep, and two of her favorite characters, Fitz and the Fool. The first volume of the new trilogy, The Fool's Assassin, is scheduled to be published in August 2014.

I honestly had no idea what to expect with this particular novella. I liked the irony of the name Princess Caution, considering she largely threw all caution to the wind in many respects. The relationship between Felicity, the narrator, and her mother was interesting. I found it interesting that ...

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
"Wolves have no kings." Nighteyes is here, if you weren't certain of that based on the review title!!!! Yayyyyy Nighteyes my BOY.

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...

As one of my favourite authors, Robin Hobb cannot really do wrong. This last part to the trilogy - and possibly to the whole saga - is great. I really enjoyed it although I thought that it was overlong, mainly due to Fitz's repetitive introspection. It's nice to see the Liveship Traders and Farseer ...
