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.

"An enthralling conclusion to this superb trilogy, displaying an exceptional combination of originality, magic, adventure, character, and drama." (Kirkus)
Bloody annoyingly good.
The Fool, cause he was less stupid and annoying as Fitz.
He was able to get to my emotions............ I even got so mad at the story that I dropped the book for two weeks, but couldn't stay away so I returned back to listening.
When Porridge and Molly got married, I was tired of Fitz always going back to the Molly story.
Excellent book, I was impressed with how Regal was dealt dealt with. I thought I was going to be able to predict that.
It was a good series from beginning to end, although there were one or two things that made me roll my eyes and go "Yes, yes...tortured soul...I got the gist...move on with the plot please". I really wished it had turned out differently at the end, or maybe I just wanted more resolution? I will tell people to check out this series. Do I think it holds up to Robert Jordan or George RR Martin? Not quite, but I enjoyed it all the same. Paul Boehmer is one of my favorite Narrators, so no complaints there at all!
i like Sci-Fi & Epic Fantasy with a little romance mixed in
Yes, it was a good listen but sad at times
the magic and how it was used
Yes. Overall it was a great trilogy read by a great narrator.
I loved the constant fear of failure throughout the trilogy. Fitz is not perfect by any standard, but his pain is believable and his successes satisfying.
This a great stroy. If you are a fan of "Game of Thrones" you will love this. Palace intrigue, sword play, secret assassins.....you will be drawn in. Great narrrator....voice changes without going over the top. I am waiting for book 4 now.
Good continuation from the first 2 books.
His accent, and ability to give each charater their own personality and voice.
yes. have a hard time shutting it off
All mysteries explained.
consistent inflection and character changes.
The writer does a lot of back tracking for readers that skipped reading the other two books in the series. On a positove note, I enjoyed the ironic bits in the final chapters.
I thouroughly Loved listening to all of the books in this series
The final confrontation with Regal! Loved what she did with that.
When he was in the skill city
what will happen?
perfect narrator for this series
i listen during my commute, and look forward to the hour drive
This is the last book in the series. It ties up all the loose ends and knotted turns. I will listen to the whole series again.
