Bill | 1596 comments Really enjoyed this story. I liked getting to see the perspective of someone related to one of the Forged Ones. I could see someone other than Hobb making this a story where the people listen to Fitz and make a heroic and tragic stand against their former family members. Loved how she presented many different reactions and their consequences. I would really like to follow Taura’s Story more and see how her decision plays out.

I liked the story, but man it was bleak. Of course that's not unusual for Hobb. I kept hoping Taura would come to her senses.

The highlight for me was Fitz. The villagers not listening to him didn't surprise me at all.

I can't see Taura's decision ending well.


Ctgt | 629 comments I wasn't sure if I would like Hobb in a short story setting but it worked for me. I really liked the way it ended and I'm with you Bill, would be nice to see how things worked out(or not).
