I keep thinking how can Robin Hobb put our poor Fitz through so many trials and tribulations that he keeps coming back for more. Fitz as a character has to be one of my favourites. We’ve seen him develop from a young boy into a man and has been put through his paces. If your looking for a new series of books to read then I highly recommend these (theres quite alot of them)
FitzChivalry Farseer has removed himself from the hustle and bustle of Buckkeep and now resides in once abandoned cottage now he calls home. Fitz is enjoying the quiet life but the yearn to use his magic is enticing. Everyday he sits on a bench on a cliff and tries desperately not to reach out but sometimes his magic just takes over.
Visitors do come every so often to check on Fitz but they are usually spaced apart and not in quick concession. His Uncle old assassin mentor tries to persuade Fitz to come back to Buckkeep and fulfill his rightful duty as a bastard prince.
The fool visits him and beckons Fitz to fulfill his destiny.
Then one day Fitz receives a summons that he can’t ignore. His nephew Prince Dutiful has vanished just before he is about to be married. Fitz is the only person who could find him. Fitz using his Wit/Beast magic to find his nephew before his bride arrives to save the six duchies from political embarrassment.
On his travels Fitz’s loyalties will be tested to the breaking point.
This book does have some violence and some sexual preferences. I’d give this book a 4.95/5
