Assassin's Quest: The Farseer Trilogy, Book 3

King Shrewd is dead at the hands of his son Regal. As is Fitz - or so his enemies and friends believe. But with the help of his allies and his beast magic, he emerges from the grave, deeply scarred in body and soul. The kingdom also teeters toward ruin: Regal has plundered and abandoned the capital, while the rightful heir, Prince Verity, is lost to his mad quest - perhaps to death. Only Verity's return - or the heir his princess carries - can save the Six Duchies.

Publisher's Summary

From an extraordinary voice in fantasy comes the stunning conclusion to the Farseer Trilogy, as FitzChivalry confronts his destiny as the catalyst who holds the fate of the kingdom of the Six Duchies...and the world itself.

King Shrewd is dead at the hands of his son Regal. As is Fitz - or so his enemies and friends believe. But with the help of his allies and his beast magic, he emerges from the grave, deeply scarred in body and soul. The kingdom also teeters toward ruin: Regal has plundered and abandoned the capital, while the rightful heir, Prince Verity, is lost to his mad quest - perhaps to death. Only Verity's return - or the heir his princess carries - can save the Six Duchies. But Fitz will not wait. Driven by loss and bitter memories, he undertakes a quest: to kill Regal. The journey casts him into deep waters, as he discovers wild currents of magic within him - currents that will either drown him or make him something more than he was.

Catch up with the rest of the Farseer trilogy.

    "Too long, but it is worth the listen"

    Great story, but I almost wish I could have listened to an abridged copy. My wife complained I kept her awake at night while I tried to finish the story. The ending was appropriate but bittersweet.

    "I will always love this series."

    I love this series of books and I always will. The narrator is wonderful. He does all the voices in such an organic way.

    "Nice end to the trilogy"

    The more I get into the books, the more the covers bother me. Hobb deserves a publisher that cares about the artwork. Not some crap that was put together by a hack who hasn't a clue what the book was about.

    "slow moving"

    book one was entertaining. Book two was depressing, and nothing more than a set up for book three. Book three was 35 chapters of slow moving build up, 5 chapters of action, and one chapter of wistful finale.

    "Best Trilogy ever about Kings, Queens, lies"

    This series of books I could hardly put down. There's so much excitement so much adventures. I couldn't tell you what my favorite part was because I enjoy everything. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves reading about kings ,queens, dragons and a touch of magic. I don't think I could pick anyone part I enjoyed the most. Just when you think you could get any worse or any better something else happens. This book was great alone but I would recommend reading the two that preceded it.

    "Too drawn out"

    They do the same thing for the entire book. Only thing excising is what happens at the end. Read the first few chapters and the last few chapters and done. No need to keep on the same road, literally.

    "One of the greatest book of all time"

    This book met every expectation and then some. You can't help but feel for all the characters, especially Fits Chivalry

    "The Farseer series is a great read."

    Robin Hobb has a great way of punishing Fitz Chivalry and tells a great story.
