King Shrewd is dead at the hands of his son Regal. As is Fitz--or so his enemies and friends believe. But with the help of his allies and his beast magic, he emerges from the grave, deeply scarred in body and soul. The kingdom also teeters toward ruin: Regal has plundered and abandoned the capital, while the rightful heir, Prince Verity, is lost to his mad quest--perhaps to death. Only Verity's return--or the heir his princess carries--can save the Six Duchies.
nbsp;
But Fitz will not wait. Driven by loss and bitter memories, he undertakes a quest: to kill Regal. The journey casts him into deep waters, as he discovers wild currents of magic within him--currents that will either drown him or make him something more than he was.

An extremely slow book but it all ends up in a wonderful payoff.

Sorely in need of an editor who was willing to tell the Author "No we do not need to read another 150 pages of Fitz's travels on the road."

This book was a bit slower than the first two of the series, but... still an incredibly good read. I read these books on the library recommendation and I have never looked back. Obsessed, possessed, unable to put down. I have read and re-read all three books. Robin Hobb does a magnificient job of providing emotional context for FitzChivalry Farseer, the people that surround him and the challenges he faces. Even that name, how cool is that name!?

Longer than it needs to be. I really liked Assassin's Apprentice, but the the concluding book did not move along nearly as quickly. Enjoyable, but not the best.

Not quite as enjoyable as the previous two books in the series, but it provides a setting for the following two trilogies.

Recommended nonetheless.

From an extraordinary new voice in fantasy comes the stunning conclusion to the Farseer trilogy, as FitzChivalry confronts his destiny as the catalyst who holds the fate of the kingdom of the Six Duchies…and the world itself.

King Shrewd is dead at the hands of his son Regal. As is Fitz–or so his enemies and friends believe. But with the help of his allies and his beast magic, he emerges from the grave, deeply scarred in body and soul. The kingdom also teeters toward ruin: Regal has plundered and abandoned the capital, while the rightful heir, Prince Verity, is lost to his mad quest–perhaps to death. Only Verity’s return–or the heir his princess carries–can save the Six Duchies.

But Fitz will not wait. Driven by loss and bitter memories, he undertakes a quest: to kill Regal. The journey casts him into deep waters, as he discovers wild currents of magic within him–currents that will either drown him or make him something more than he was….
