I’m pretty biased when it comes to Robin Hobb I’ve read all her books and love every single one of them. This book doesn’t dissapoint as it’s another great book in the fitz and fool series which are amazing charaters. If you want to start this series you need to go all the way back to assassins apprentice and if your interested in Robin’s books please go all the way back to the start as you won’t be disappointed. This book does take it’s time to get started but thats mainly on character build up. The character’s in these books have an extensive background which you need to no and helps the story move along. I’m really looking forward to the next instalment of this series and will review it as soon as I’ve read it.
