  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Max Williamson | 10/27/2013

    " Great imagination, I really enjoyed these books and became heavily involved with the characters, their loves, lives and losses. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe Kendall | 8/8/2013

    " Very good series. I enjoyed all three books a lot. Robin Hobb is a master of forming characters then letting them grow into their rolls. I have to say though that this trilogy was a little more paint by numbers than her first one. The ending was a bit predictable. But I enjoyed it none the less. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aaron Eriksson | 6/14/2013

    " Probably my favorite fantasy series to date, for its complexity, its world building, its cast of characters, and its stunning prose. Best of all, these three books are snuggled in between eight other novels that are nearly as fantastic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucy | 12/2/2012

    " The story telling is a bit scruffier than in #1 and #2, but it delivers anyway. Thoroughly enoyable. Kept me awake very late. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brinn | 10/17/2012

    " the second book I was able to guess the sequence of events, but now I realize that was setting up this exciting conclusion to the series. The turn of events kept me interested to the very end. Looking forward to reading more Hobb. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Phil | 3/6/2011

    " I think the series is greater than the sum of the books. I dont find any one of the books great, or a page turner, but I also cant wait to read the next one.

    I think it boils down to an awesome concept, which is only mediocre in delivery. "
