    "Fool's Assassin" - Book 1 of 'The Fitz and the Fool Trilogy', hopefully coming 2014!

    Robin Hobb's assistant, who goes by "Office Kat", posted a video earlier teasing a new book from Hobb: It's a series that Hobb has been writing in her spare time for nearly two years, the first book is with the publishers, and they're hoping for a 2014 release. Through a series of text...

    New Hardcover Assassin's Apprentice

    I just ordered a copy of Robin Hobb's Assassin's Apprentice in a cloth bound hardcover from the UK amazon site. I am from Canada so it ends up costing me a pretty penny but it is not available here! It just looks cool so why not. I read this book for the first time about 5 years ago and...

    The Willful Princess and the Piebald Prince

    Has anyone read this book? I saw it on amazon, looks like it was released Feb 28th? The Willful Princess and the Piebald Prince It is a novella and it gives some background to the Farseers. I would like to read it but am hesitant to spend $30 on it

    Assassin's Apprentice

    I am not sure if there is a thread about this book, but anyway here goes. I started reading this book and I must say I am quite enjoying Fitz's character and the style of Hobb's writing. I have one query though, from reviews a lot of people mention that there isn't much of a story/plot but more...

    'I have never felt less of a man...'

    *Spoilers for Fool's Fate* After Fitz brings the Fool back to life, there's a strange passage. It says "I held him while he wept, and I held him after his weeping was done. I let him take whatever comfort he could in the warmth and strength of my body. I have never fet less of a man that I...

    (Mis)hap Starling

    This has been in my mind for years, but no one else seem to have ever mentioned it so i'm going ahead and ask: Does anyone think Mishap may actually be Starling own kid. Reasons: 1) Starling was raped by a forged one and got pregnant by it. 2) Apparantly Starling seemed incapable of of having...

    Robin Hobb or Braden Sanderson?

    Hello, I am looking for a fantasy to read, but I cannot choose between these two authors because I've never read anything from them and I don't know their styles at all. I am actually looking for a high fantasy, with magic, dragons, etc, with complex and interesting characters, without so...

    The Inheritance

    I'm working my way through this book at the moment and wondered what everyone thought. I like how her two pen names are more obviously different in style when you see them together in one book! Not sure about the cover of the UK edition though :confused:

    New Hobb Book

    So it looks like Hobb has a new one coming out called The Inheritance due out in the UK in March i think. I for one am excited to see the conclusion of the Rain Wild Chronicles. Should be a good one.

    How depressing is Fitz?

    I read the Farseer and Tawny Man Trilogies years ago. I've just about finished re-reading them and while still loving all the books I've come to the realisation that Fitz is one of the most depressing, negative and pessimistic heroes of any book I've read. Thomas Covenant might be up there with...

    Books Similar to Farseer/Tawny Man Series?

    I was wondering if anyone knew of any other books that are similar to Robin Hobb's series. One of the things that I liked the best was the political intrigue/espionage aspect and how there was always a pressing need to unravel the motivations behind various actions. I jumped to these series...

    Re: The Dragon Keeper Have any of you read this? What happened to Robin Hobb? In her other series, any dislike I had for her characters extended only to a set limit because her characters were written to be self-destructive (Althea running away the first night, Fitz in general, Nevare all the...

    Warriors by GRRM, Tad Williams, Robin Hobb, David Weber etc

    Warriors is a multiple-author, genre-swapping anthology. The only thing these twenty stories have in common is that a warrior of some kind - a soldier, a mercenary, a religious fanatic, a cowboy, even a serial killer who considers themselves on an important mission - is involved. The stories...

    Who was that!?

    Ok, don't actually tell me who. But I need to know if you actually find out. Spoilers: In chapter 23 of Fool's Errand, somone saves Fitz from letting himself go into the Skill. Do you find out who that is? It's honestly hurting me not knowing.
