really liked it

I found this book really difficult to put down. Hobb does a very nice job with gradually developing the characters. She focuses mostly on 2-3 of them, but pulls them through the story terrifically.

The bastard, boy, newboy, young Fitz, Tom, and ‘you’ has many identities within the kingdom and even more within himself. He carefully determines each situation with kindness and regard for his companions. While some accept him, a few do not and his life remains in danger throughout the journey. However, as a young lad he’s despised by a prince, disgusted by his guardian, and guarded by the King.

He finds ways to survive, and begins forming an identity for himself.
