Assassin's Apprentice (Farseer Trilogy #1) 17, Jan

Rating: 4/5 Stars

My journey into Robin Hobb's Realm of the Elderlings has finally begun and it’s off to a great start.

Assassin's Apprentice (Farseer Trilogy, #1) 14, Jun

I haven't read a lot of fantasy in the last decade, so the fact I've read 12 of Robin Hobb's books in the last 5 years says a lot about how much I enjoy reading her work. The adventures of Fitz through three trilogies account for a big chunk of that reading. Robin Hobb can write a first person story with rare skill. She shows you a world though Fitz's eyes and makes it matter, makes it vital. Some elements of Hobb's fantasy are fairly old school, but written with a modern style and a literary skill that one almost never used to see in fantasy and is still hard to find in the genre.
