Book 3 of the Farseer's trilogy. Often I am disappointed with the final book in a series, mostly because the final book in the series tends to wander from the main point of the story. This book, unlike the others, begins with the main character trying to remember how to be human again. He then set's out alone on a goal to kill his uncle, who had tried to kill him. Lots of things get wrapped up in this book, such as Forgings, the Old Blood, the power of the Old Blood, and who the Elderlings really are.

The only problem with this book, as I have seen from others, is the lack of a "happy ending". No, he doesn't get the girl, he doesn't become the King, and he doesn't save the King's life. He doesn't even get to kill his Uncle, which as a little frustrating as the sick little man needed to die and I wanted it to be done at the main character's hand. But it still was worth the read, and I gave it four stars because I was do engrossed with the book my wife got a little angry with me. ^_^
