From an extraordinary voice in fantasy comes the stunning conclusion to the Farseer trilogy, as FitzChivalry confronts his destiny as the catalyst who holds the fate of the kingdom of the Six Duchies...and the world itself.

King Shrewd is dead at the hands of his son Regal. As is Fitz—or so his enemies and friends believe. But with the help of his allies and his beast magic, he emerges from the grave, deeply scarred in body and soul. The kingdom also teeters toward ruin: Regal has plundered and abandoned the capital, while the rightful heir, Prince Verity, is lost to his mad quest—perhaps to death. Only Verity's return—or the heir his princess carries—can save the Six Duchies.

But Fitz will not wait. Driven by loss and bitter memories, he undertakes a quest: to kill Regal. The journey casts him into deep waters, as he discovers wild currents of magic within him—currents that will either drown him or make him something more than he was. Download and start listening now!

    " I love how despite the fact that for whole sections of the book there were no startling happenings Robin Hobb did not just speed up the journey and have the characters have a very swift success. Her writing let you experience not only the moments of furious fighting, difficult decisions and epic adventure, she also wrote the drudgery of a quest so well. I think this is my favorite bit about her writing, her characters are human and go through the stages all of us need to go through to become the awe inspiring people heroes are called to be. "

    " This is a good book, but I found that the book tended to drag on about the middle of the book. By then, you juat want Fitz to stop getting into trouble and get on with the business. And peraonally, I found the end of the book and the issues with Molly to be disappointing. I wouldn't call this a happy ending, but it is still an ending. "

    " Most trilogies in my experience tend to drag in the second volume as the author treads water before the wam-bam-zowie finale. The Farseer trilogy is different as the first third of this final volume is painfully slow, compared with what had gone before, as the main character starts his quest. However, such is the quality of the writing it remains readable and once the quest is in full swing, the reader's rewards are great with a wonderful climax followed by a low key, poignant elegaic ending. "

    " Garbage. Save yourself the frustration and don't bother reading this crap. In fact, don't even read the second book in the trilogy.Pretend that Assassin's Apprentice was the first and last. It took all my self control from ripping this book in two and burning it. "

    " Young... or should I say old fitz is shit out of luck in love by this point, and much like his predecesor learns his path is a loney one where the only satisfaction one can know is there bed after a long days work. Kind of a downhearted end, but then again Burich ends up happy. "
