You must read The Farseer series first, but Fool's Fate is a rewarding ending.

A fitting end to a wonderful series. I cried with joy for Fitz to finally have peace. Don't read the series if you can't get emotionally attached to your characters. Robin Hobb outdoes herself with an ending which fulfills the thing all readers hope for in a series, 'Satisfactory Completion' although, the way the fool left...*wimpers* but it was to be expected, for nothing expected ever came from the fool...

having awaited this book for several anxious months, i thought my expectations were too high... i was mistaken! If you haven't read any of Hobbs previous works, i implore you to. I challenge anyone to read these and not become emotionally attatched to all the main characters... Without a doubt, the best series of books i've ever had the pleasure of reading.

This book in particular has left me a complete and utter emotional wreck, as if I myself just lost the love of my own life. The characters draw the reader in so completely that they become so SO much more than that. However, the ending left me completely empty....you know, the Fool deserves a happily-ever-after, too. So please Robin Hobb....please please PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEE I beg of you....even if it's just one more book, please please give us a happy ending for the Fool. If any of your characters ever deserved a happy ending, you KNOW he does. He's the most precious and real of them all. Don't abandon him please.

Robin Hobb's series about FitzChivalry Farseer shows Fitz's growth from wide-eyed boy to foolish young man, to experienced adult. It was enjoyable to me for one reason because even though Fitz was the main character, it wasn't as though he was holy, or respected, or the ONE. He knew what he was in the world and never tried to be more. I got caught up in the story through his thoughts and emotions, and got through his most embarrassing moments to enjoy the ending.

Makes me sad, knowing this is the last book. It was excellent. Everyone should read it. Though, it might help if you read the other books.

The heir to the throne of the Six Duchies, Prince Dutiful promises his fiancée, that he will present her with a dragon¿s head, which means an expedition to the remote tundra like Out Island. The former fool Lord Golden knows that he is going to die on this northern wasteland trek, but feels it is his duty to accompany the Prince. His friend, who is also an assassin, FitzChivalry Farseertries tries to persuade Golden into not going, but fails................................................ When they reach one of the independent Out Islands, the royal retinue meets the Hetgurd who disagree with the slaying. The teenage prince negotiates a deal with the Outislanders. He and a small party accompanied by Hetgurd warriors will set off on the trek to slice off the head of a dragon. However, Dutiful and company run into a new problem as the local dragon community refuse to cooperate. Will the two species war, cooperate with some sort of deal such as an exchange for one of the regal crew, or will Dutiful break his first promise to his future wife?.......................................... The third entry in the FitzChivalry Farseertries narrated fantasy series is a delightful tale that shows the complexities of groups trying to come together on an objective, but with each member bringing baggage and an agenda to the table (ship?). The story line is exciting, but it is the ensemble that makes Robin Hobb¿s realm seems so real. Fans will enjoy this deep look at those who must carry out the wishes of their leader although unlike real life whether it is World War One or Operation Iraqi where the decision makers stay away from the battlefield, Dutiful to his credit joins them on the front line.....................................

I'm a great lover of the series and finally got hold of and finished (remarkably rapidly for 900 pages) the final (for now) volume (definitely not starting the next trilogy until all 3 are out). As always, Fitz and the Fool have the rare ability to make me cry and there is an intriguing story going on here. My only reservation is that the quest itself feels rather drawn out before the delivery of a very satisfying and lengthy resolution (too satisfying? too lengthy?). After all I've been through with Fitz, I think I needed to see him happy but there's an element to his happy ending which cheapens what has gone before. Obviously being a little unfair: still my favorite fantasy series!

I have loved all the books right up to the end but.....I would have to say this one was great except for the Fool's departure. Really? Thats how it ends? Kind of a dis-service to the best written and mysterious character I have ever had the pleasure to read about. I am praying for more!

I enjoy Robin Hobbs books and her way of telling a story. I especially enjoyed reading this trilogy because it, briefly, tells you what happened to some characters she introduced in the Liveship series. She incorporates it into the new story and this makes me want to continue reading her books. She gives you a love story, a thriller, fantasy and good old fashioned family stories all rolled into one.
