All the stars for Nighteyes as I am the wolf lover



I know I don't need to be listening to first time books on audio. I know, I know, I know. But I'm trying to save my eyeballs so I'm reading whatever they have on Overdrive and doing my re-reads through audible and Overdrive until I get them on audible. Why am I rambling about this?! Well, the reason is that I fought back and forth over giving this a 3 star or a 4 star. I mean I was trying to figure out if Nighteyes was the only reason I even enjo

I will rant about this book, there's no doubt in my mind. I'm simply trying to gather my thoughts. Let's try with the first book, "Assassin's Apprentice," shall we?

I liked Book I. It was a beginning story, a training story. Young FitzChivalry is the bastard son of King-in-Waiting Chivalry and has to come to terms with a world that doesn't want him. King Shrewd, however, decides to train him as an assassin from an early age, and so begins young Fitz' journey into adulthood and the intrigues of th

Actual Rating: 4.5 Stars

Often times, I'm a little hesitant when I pick up older Fantasy. I haven't read an abundance of older Fantasy books, but I have discovered from the few I have read that I'm not always a fan of the "Classic" feel. It can be tropey & predictable & even campy, but it really just depends so I never like to let my hesitations keep me from giving things a try!

Even after a 3 star beginning to the Farseer Trilogy, I'm really glad I continued on with the series.

Starting a middle book of the series is never an easy endeavor, especially if you loved the first book because there are certain expectations and funny thing about expectations is that no matter how small they are, there is always a possibility they won’t be met. My only expectation for Royal Assassin was it to be at least as good as the Assassin’s Apprentice. This book didn’t just exceeded my expectations, it also solidified this series as one of my favorites and I have yet to read the conclusi ...more

Fitzchivalry really does feel sorry for himself. He is very whiney at times, and this is often misinterpreted as self-indulgent uselessness. But, in my opinion, that’s completely unfair. Resting on his shoulders is a whole host of burdens. They would, no doubt, overcome a lesser man. Every decision he makes is hindered by his obligations. Indeed, nothing is easy for Fitz; he is restricted by his position in the world. This doesn’t make him useless, but limited in the actual paths he can take. So ...more

Proposed alternate title: FitzChivalry Farseer and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day (Year, Life, etc.)

On one hand, this feels like a three-star read: for an epic fantasy book (and series), not much happens, (certainly not much that feels very epic), there’s a paucity of truly intriguing villains (and no monsters), and the magic system is not particularly well defined. Plus, as suggested by the proposed alternate title above…man, poor Fitz just gets constantly pummeled in the gigglebe

Buddy read with Alexa!

Come, hunt with me, the invitation whispers in my heart. Leave the pain behind and let your life be your own again. There is a place where all time is now, and the choices are simple and always your own.
Wolves have no kings.


After the harrowing experience in the Mountain Kingdom, FitzChivalry returns to Buckkeep and the Farseer court. Having barely survived his first real mission as a royal assassin, Fitz first vowed to renounce his oath to King Shrewd and abandon the shadow

I got cheated, I thought that this is a nice boring story about a nice boy with a nice doggy who grows up to be a nice assassin in a nice castle. Well no one freaking mentioned all the angst and feels and the shit that goes down, and that spawn of Satan, Regal that needs to choke on a fish bone and die a most horrible death!!

Holy crap, that was a good book. I made the mistake of reading until past my bedtime to finish. Not only did I lose some sleep before starting a work week, but I then gave myself a series of messed up dreams as my poor little brain processed the end of this book.

Damn.

Not a lot I can say without spoilers. But Hobb is definitely moving up a few spots on my author list. Assassin's Apprentice was a very good book. Intriguing characters in a (seemingly)simple but interesting world with a good story.

That was incredible! I have no idea how to even begin this review because this book was perfect. The plot is one of a kind and the writing is so compelling, its my favourite thing about this series. Robin Hobb writes a classic type fantasy that is very comprehensible and addicting, The world is perfectly depicted. The politics is very well incorporated in the book, and it is a major factor of Fitz's story.I so much love the character development of all the characters especially the newest additi ...more

** 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
