    Which series is your favorite?

    I really enjoyed all three series, and I'm curious as to which one you folks enjoyed the most. The best, for me, boiled down between Liveship Traders and Tawny Man. But in the end my vote went to Liveship because I didn't really expect much about a series devoted to ships. I thoroughly...

    Am I the only person, who disliked this innocent woman? I've thought it over a lot, and have come to the conclusion that it's because she can never share in Fitz's adventures to the full- she was only ever a looker on. In fact the relationship between them was only ever based on physical...

    Tawny Man on the way.. Will I kick myself?

    I just ordered the Tawny Man trilogy, without realizing that the Liveship Traders was in any way connected. Am I about to kick myself for not getting it first?

    I finished Fool's Fate this week-end. Looking back over the trilogies, there was one character I loved most : Nighteyes. I'm just curious. What do you think about Nighteyes ? Did you love the wolf ? Was he more clever than Fitz ? Or he managed to show us the hidden part of Fitz ?

    Robin Hobb's Assassin and Ethics

    For those of you who have read Hobb's Farseer Trilogy, you know that the main character is a trained assassin. Throughout the work (and the associated other books) Fitz contemplates the ethics of using an assassin's 'arts' to aid a Kingdom and his family. Does this thinking make him a better...
