Into the Wild

Read Assassin's Apprentice (Farseer Trilogy, #1) Online Free - In a faraway land where members of the royal family are named for the virtues they embody, one young boy will become a walking enigma.

Born on the wrong side of the sheets, Fitz, son of Chivalry Farseer, is a royal bastard, cast out into the world, friendless and lonely. Only his magical link with animals - the old art known as the Wit - gives him solace and companionship. But the Wit, if used too often, is a perilous magic, and one abhorred by the nobility.

So when Fitz is finally adopted into the royal household, he must give up his old ways and embrace a new life of weaponry, scribing, courtly manners; and how to kill a man secretly, as he trains to become a royal assassin.

I haven't read a lot of fantasy in the last decade, so the fact I've read 12 of Robin Hobb's books in the last 5 years says a lot about how much I enjoy reading her work. The adventures of Fitz through three trilogies account for a big chunk of that reading. Robin Hobb can write a first person sto...

I read this again through audio so I can continue on with the series. The narrator was Paul Boehmer and I thought he did a great job 😄 These were the lessons in my assassin's primer. And more. Sleight of hand and the art of moving stealthily. Where to strike a man to render him unconscious. Where...

My journey into The Realm of the Elderlings by Robin Hobb has finally begun and it’s off to a great start. You can skip the next paragraph if you want to go straight to the review, this is just a long introduction that I need to make before writing my review. It’s not an overstatement to say that...

This book made me realize a number of things: 1. I like the idea of killing people for fun and profit 2. You can't trust your uncle 3. I like men who whine a lot and play with dogs 4. I would like to read people's minds, but I do not want them to read mine 5. Poison is an interesting topic, and discus...

I feel so sorry for Fitzchivalry because he had such a rough start to life. The boy is despised for the simple fact that he exists. He is a royal bastard, and his dishonourable conception means that his father’s name is forever sullied; that much so that he was forced to abdicate the throne; thus...

What unexpected, and much needed, joy this book brought me! I know this is a fantasy favorite among so many people I trust, but I never expected it to be as perfect as it was! Fitz and his journey was an absolute joy to read about, and I cannot wait to continue on with this world. Like, I need th...

07/19 : 1.99$ today on kindle! ← I never do that, but that's FITZ. Be serious. Funny that I thought I would be able to objectively review this favorite of mine. SERIOUSLY? I was way too conceited. Because the truth is... Why? ◘ Because I'm (way) too much involved in Fitz's story to analyze it. I m...

Bullet points for this review because although Robin Hobb likes to ramble on.. I do not. A Summary of this book: -- Fitz's life sucks -- lots of winding and turning and taking an especially long time to get to the point -- lots of predictable plots but not knowing exactly how we'd get there While...

I find a lot of fantasy authors are in love with the internalized conceptions of their worlds. This can lead to great nuanced detail supporting imaginative storytelling... but the flipside can be a creation that fails to translate that vision to the actual page, to the audience. Assassin's Apprent...
