Overview

Since Robin Hobb’s debut novel took the fantasy world by storm, the adventures of her beloved assassin FitzChivalry Farseer have spawned a sweeping epic that spans more than a dozen books—and counting. Discover the phenomenon from the beginning with this eBook bundle of the original trilogy:
 
ASSASSIN’S APPRENTICE
ROYAL ASSASSIN
ASSASSIN’S QUEST
 
Young Fitz is the bastard son of the noble Prince Chivalry, raised in the shadow of the royal court by his father’s gruff stableman. He is treated as an outcast by all the royalty except the devious King Shrewd, who has him secretly tutored in the arts of the assassin. For in Fitz’s blood runs the magic Skill—and the darker knowledge of a child raised with the stable hounds and rejected by his family.
 
As barbarous raiders ravage the coasts, Fitz is growing to manhood. Soon he will face his first dangerous, soul-shattering mission. And though some regard him as a threat to the throne, he may just be the key to the survival of the kingdom.

“A gleaming debut in the crowded field of epic fantasies . . . a delightful take on the powers and politics behind the throne.”Publishers Weekly, on Assassin’s Apprentice
 
“This is the kind of book you fall into, and start reading slower as you get to the end, because you don’t want it to be over.”—Steven Brust, on Assassin’s Apprentice
 
“[Robin] Hobb continues to revitalize a genre that often seems all too generic, making it new in ways that range from the subtle to the shocking.”Locus, on Royal Assassin
 
“[Royal Assassin] reaches astonishing new heights. . . . The Farseer saga is destined for greatness—a must-read for every devotee of epic fantasy.”Sense of Wonder
 
“An enthralling conclusion to this superb trilogy, displaying an exceptional combination of originality, magic, adventure, character, and drama.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review), on Assassin’s Quest

I was looking for a trilogy of 1990s-style (pre-Twilight, Hunger Games, Game of Thrones explosion) fantasy. One that was true to the genre with a few understated stereotypes and not too much predictability. This trilogy was exactly that. ASSASIN'S APPRENTICE really sucked me in. Even though I don't generally like 1st person narration, Fitz told his story well in a (mostly) humble reflective voice that was easy to enjoy. The characters he interacts with are beautifully developed with strengths, weaknesses, and flaws on both sides of the story. I enjoyed every word of the first book. ROYAL ASSASSIN was a book with more meat to it. The characters are mostly known, and Fitz is growing up. He is finding his place in the world, learning about love and friendship, and trying to define who he is. His rivals start to become his enemies and he starts to gain some confidence. The story also takes a darker turn here as the challenges he will face make themselves known. ASSASSIN'S QUEST had a more emotional tone to it than the others. I confess that, in the beginning, I wasn't sure that I wanted to see where it would go because it started off so bleak. I made myself continue reading and was really glad I did. The final book in this trilogy doesn't disappoint. I love the way Robin Hobb treats her characters. She doesn't put them in difficult situations without reason. She let's them grow and change, and she doesn't pull her punches. It makes them all seem so alive. Even her minor charters have personalities and stories that make them interesting and unique. I look forward to reading more of her books in the future. If you consider yourself fan of the fantasy genre, you must read some of her works. She truly is an amazing talent.

This series is amazing, great characters(especially fitz), the writing is perfect, and the world is very harsh yet easily relatable. This should be mandatory reading for everyone.

I wasn't impressed, the story could have been told in two books instead of three. Author kept repeating himself, or he kept going over the things that had happened in his past constantly, also rehashing his feelings constantly. I kept loosing interest and had to skip over the repeat sections. Not worth the e-nook price and I wouldn't buy the books.

Assassin's Apprentice, the first book, is 400 pages of enchantment. The second book, Royal Assassin, is 600 pages of adventure. The third book, Assassin's Quest, promised to be a full 800 pages of misery, but improved after the first, oh, 300 pages of threats and beatings. Good to folliw a hero who is, in spite of all, an honorable man. I want to say that it was well written, but stumble over a very few grammatical errors. I will probably continue with this author, although not right away.
