Read from December 26, 2010 to March 14, 2011

Enjoyed this a lot. The story is moving along more, but I wish Hobb would give me a bit more action. The Royal Assassin is very much the political and personal battles of good and evil, corruption and duty, along with richer character development. I just want to know the end of the story! SO I guess I'll have to read the third book.

Lisa I love, love, love this book! But I guess you already knew that.

Chrismpadgett Padgett I need to finish this. I saw the review you liked, and the lady said there are nine books with Fitz. I thought there were three in the one series and then three in the other?

Ps.. thanks for reading Jupiter's Spinning. I really like that. It is about a child who is abused. Anyway... Blessings!

Lisa If there are three that I don't know about, I have some research to do.

Lisa Three of the 9 books do not have Fitz as the protagonist. The Live ship traders series was written between the Farseer trilogy and the Tawny Man series. I think a lot of what happens in the Live Ship Traders would explain some things that happen in the Tawny Man series but not necessary. I plan on reading that series soon. I need some mystery first though.

BTW, I loved both of your short stories. I'm trying to get up the nerve to post one of mine.

Chrismpadgett Padgett Thanks Lisa, about the stories that is. I know there are a few typos, but it is a start. I'd thought about making Jupiter's Spinning a full length book.

Lisa The third has more action in it. I'm glad you like it.
