Robin Hobb is fantastic. This was the last trilogy of hers that I have read, and I had delayed reading it because of its relatively poorer reviews. Also, a friend had dinged it because she did not like the parallels to the "old west" and the subjugation of native peoples by a stronger, technology-driven culture. But the books are clever and inventive, as Robin Hobb always is. There was not as much action, and the protagonist acted too dense for too long (since he was given to us as a very intell...more

I edged towards four stars for this series because it confounded my expectations of the fantasy genre at almost every turn. Not so much in its setting but in the author's treatment of the protagonist and his relationship to the magic. He certainly does not fit the traditional mould of a hero, in some regards he is neither likeable nor admirable, but is all the better for it. He blunders through the world trying to be the person he thinks he ought to be, trying to do the right thing, and being co...more

This marks the fourth trilogy I have read by Hobb (farseer, tawny man, rain wilds being the others). It has Hobb's trademark long form character development, morally ambivalent protagonists and celebration of simple, close relationships. On the other hand this is a different world from the other trilogies, sharing elements of the American West with a landed nobility and primal forest magic. For some reason it takes a bit longer to get wrapped up in this new world, but it is still worthwhile. An...more

I usually don't bother writing reviews but I figured this series, from a usually solid writer, was disappointing enough that it warranted a little warning to future readers. The story as it unfolds isn't very well constructed and since I read them all at once in the collection, I'm honestly surprised at how each book ended. The books themselves cannot be read individually as there isn't a complete or satisfying narrative to be found in any individual volume; the "action" picks up almost directly...more
I’ve already read the three books that comprise Soldier Son, but when I saw a Kindle deal for the trilogy all in one I decided it was time for a reread. Shaman’s Crossing comes first, then Forest Mage, and Renegade’s Magic completes the series. I love Robin Hobb but I remember feeling like this series wasn’t one of her best.

My reread elevated my esteem for the story of Nevare Burvelle, a soldier’s son destined by the good god to become an officer, thanks to his father’s newly minted status as a...more
I actually finished this book awhile ago, and it was quite enjoyable. I really liked this particular world.

** I am shocked to find that some people think a 2 star 'I liked it' rating is a bad rating. What? I liked it. I LIKED it! That means I read the whole thing, to the last page, in spite of my life raining comets on me. It's a good book that survives the reading process with me. If a book is so-so, it ends up under the bed somewhere, or maybe under a stinky judo bag in the back of the van. So a 2 st...more
