Both are equal. Depends on preference.
The siege of Neatbay was the most memorable and fantastic. The characters really steal the show here. The first book introduced a fantastic, deep, and complex group of characters, each with real motives and personalities. They are made even more introspective and complex in this second book.
Probably the scene in the Queens garden between Kettricken, Fitz, and Duke Brawndy.
It's very long and I am not a one sitting kind of guy.
If you liked the first a lot, I bet you'll like the second even more!!!
How often is a middle book in a trilogy just filler? This one is not. It's substantial and just as powerful as the other two! Excellent series and reader.
I really liked the first book in the series. This one was good for a while then it just started getting old. It wasn't really bad. It just stopped being very entertaining. I'm not sure I will bother with the next book. The narration is good.
The intrigue is thick in this one and the fitz is slammed from all angles. Really interesting to see the weird magic being teased out further.
What a masterful storytelling of this 2nd tale of the Assassin's Apprentice trilogy. Can't wait to start the next!!! Yes
This is a worthy successor to the Assassin's Apprentice as a story told of a young man growing amongst court intrigue of the Buck Keep Castle in the Six Dutchies. The story, told in first person, holds nothing back, as Fitz-Chivalry Farseer goes through some of the most trying trials a young man can endure. It is generous in its range of emotions and beautifully written. The second book in the first trilogy of a trilogy and series totalling 9 books, each one dynamic in terms of writing style, story telling, and exciting fantastic political drama. A great read is also a great listen. Highly recommended!
