I absolutely love this series and I had to be talked into it because Farseer was so disappointing to me.

I really liked Farseer, even though it was dragging a bit with the depressive characters by the end. But, I adore this series so far!!

Solseit | 1460 comments I am impressed by the progress of everyone so far! I will start tomorrow though and I cannot wait to read through your comments!!


Choko (chokog) | 6802 comments I just started, Ch. 2... I feel like howling for Paragon and for all the wrongs done to the Live Ships...

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 3611 comments I just started too, have only made it through chapter three. I can already tell I'm going to hate reading Kennit's chapters...again. Which means I'm going to dislike reading Wintrow's chapters too since he's now in Kennit's clutches. This is going to be a frustrating book for me, I fear. :-( (view spoiler)


Choko (chokog) | 6802 comments Yeah, I suspected something of the sort... I wonder if they were dead or just in deep sleep... Somehow it seems wrong, doesn't it?

It totally does.

Nice theories guys!! Definitely getting ahead of ourselves! 😂

Totally agree with your chapter three spoiler (which is as far as I've read so far). (view spoiler)

RE chapter 3 (view spoiler)


Choko (chokog) | 6802 comments I hate that whole situation with Reyn and Malta. Because of her games and as he said, he had never been romantically been interested in another person before, so he is inexperienced, the whole situation can be very hurtful to very many people without even meaning to. I really wish she would get her shit together and that he will slow things down...

Vestrits (view spoiler)


Choko (chokog) | 6802 comments Anny, I hope you are wrong, but I don't put anything past Malta. She is mellitus and spiteful. She is smart, but her smarts are used for cunning and bad intentions... I am so tired of her small minded interests and pettiness... I had hoped that she will understand what dire straights they are in and she will put her intellectual strength and spirit into doing something good for the family... I am patient, but she is trying my patience and I am starting to lose hope in her redemption.

The chapters with the Alzheimer's serpents break my heart!

Ch. 14... that Magnadon, I want him dead ASAP!


Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 3611 comments Not much reading time, and it doesn't help that I have three books going at once (and Dust of Dreams lurking in July - eek!) so I'm only through chapter 8. (view spoiler)

And Malta...ugh...her parts on top of Kennit's make me want to drop the book altogether. More Kyle added to those toxic two would get me to that point for sure. These three characters make me want to turn more to the other two books I'm reading.


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7737 comments Don't worry Veronica, I'm reading 3 books at once too so I'll be here a while! XD

See, those awful characters don't put me off reading! It's like a love to hate thing. I hate them with a passion, but I think that's wonderful writing haha.

RE chapter 8, I agree (view spoiler)

The three book thing is stressing me out, lol.


Choko (chokog) | 6802 comments V, don't give up on the book. I am up to Ch 20 and things are happening, it just takes Hobb a while to unroll them...


Choko (chokog) | 6802 comments However, Kenit is one cunning and duplicitous bastard! And Vivacia, being really a baby in social sense, is very susceptible to his games...


Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 3611 comments That's what I'm afraid of, that Vivacia will fall for his crap. By the time Alethea gets her back, assuming she ever does, she may be too twisted. :-(

And for the love of chocolate, can someone please drop Malta down a deep well and board up the top? She is so shallow, materialistic, narcissistic...I can't stand her. I'm beginning to think Reyn isn't too bright. Not to mention the flirting with sexual innuendo is sleeving me out. Yuck.


Choko (chokog) | 6802 comments The way she flirts with men is sickening! She has absolutely no idea what she is playing with...


Choko (chokog) | 6802 comments Ch. 24... OMG! I thought it would be something like that... Poor (view spoiler)
