    Rune, did you read something from her writings as Megan Lindholm ? I'm curious if those books are as well written as the others.

    There are a couple of threads on this, basically, you can read them in any order as long as Farseer is first.

    The correct order is Farseer, Liveships then Tawny but other people read Tawny before Liveships and didn't have a problem.

    I read them in order and found it easier, things slotted into place a lot faster!

    Dragon Keeper (likely to change)

    From Robin Hobb' homepage
    This book is set in the Rain Wilds, and chronologically, the events in it happen after the events described in Fool's Fate. It will not be a direct continuation of any character's story line, however. At this point, I don't want to say too much more than that.

    Quality of writing dropped in Soldier Son

    Thank you Nettle for alerting us to Robin Hobb's statement that she is working on a new book based in the Rainwilds. I will be looking forward to it. I'm a huge fan of her first nine books written under the name Robin Hobbs and mourned when I finished them.

    I did read the first book of her Soldier Son series and I wondered if anyone agrees with me that the quality of writing dropped substantially, from her word choices to plot complexity to shallow characterization. I was so surprised, I checked the former nine books front and back to see if perhaps she had some kind of under-wraps co-author or even a different editor that might contribute to the difference in the writing.

    What's everyone's thoughts on this?

    I don't think the quality reduces; I think she takes on a new character and world and thus takes a different approach to the writing. I can still see the "Hobb" in the style of writing and in the characters. The first book is a little slower to build up than her Farseer books.

    Mmm. I'll have to take another look at the series. Could be I was biased after finishing her other books. I felt they were the best read I'd had in years. I'll give the second book in the Soldier Son series a try. Thanks for you input. Maggs

    You could also include in her list of works the short story "Homecoming" which is in the book “Legends II: New Short Novels by the Masters of Modern Fantasy.” Its a very good story, set in the Rain Wilds, I loved it.
