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)
I enjoyed the story, but it was extremely slow moving. Sometimes I was tempted to fast forward. Good narration. Long.
i understand that in the first book the boy is learning. But then you find out that the guy is just a complete idiot.
write it as a short story
guy is good
the idiot main caracter
if u read on because you think that nobody can be this dumb and eventually he must figure it out; don't. just stop after book 1
Tip to the bastard: just kill the guy, please!
To the author; please stop writing these books, its painful
Love historical romance, I drive for a living an it helps the time go bye
Right at the top all 3 books were fantastic
Yes I don't want to say incase I ruin it for the next reader
Wish there was more
First book was great, last two slow and boring. So much build up to the finale and like Robert Jordan very little put into the climax that was building over the 3 books.
I found myself angry at Fitz for being so dumb and the story was very predictable.
not read anything else by Robin Hobb
When I finish a book or a series, I rate it by how much I want to listen to it again. I never want to pick this series up again. Does not compare at all to say the Riyria Revelations series or pretty much anything from Michael J Sullivan. I have listen to those books many times and the story never gets old.
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
