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.

    "Tedious and boring"

    This is one of the few books that I just couldn't finish. I only had two hours left and tried so very hard to get through this tiresome, boring story. I followed our hero through two other full length novels - surely I could listen to two more hours! Nope... this book is literally hours spent listening to characters walking around through snow and having the same conversations over and over. In the end, I used good old Google to tell me how the story ends - and I'm glad I saved myself 120 minutes...

    "worst of the series by far"

    "Struggled to finish"

    I understand the character must learn and go through trials to ultimately be successful but this book took it to extreme. I found myself rolling my eyes so many times at the hero. I had to force myself to continue and if I was reading it in paper I am sure I would have put it down and not come back. It is a good story though and the narrator is gifted.

    "loved it"

    I wish the book had not ended the way it did with Variety. The Catalyst should've found a way and not left to rot in stone.

    "The narrator was phenomenal!"

    The narrator had so many distinct and different voices. Even his female voices were different from each other. Such talent!

    Story
    "Don't be in a hurry, immerse yourself."

    Hobb's action scenes are so good you want to rush on to the next one, but she doesn't let you. At the same time you start getting impatient with her attention to everyday details in the lives and emotions of her characters, you start to realize how deeply she has sucked you into their world. She gives such an insightful and honest look into how people respond to situations from their own and usually selfish perspective. She not only represents her human characters in all their self centered detail, but her knowledge and characterization of the wolf shows how much time she has spent around dogs, right down to the way their feet splay when they stretch. I had to make myself slow down and really relish her pace through the story. This was true of all three of the books in this trilogy.

    "Very good"

    This whole series was good. A few Exclamations of "Oh get on with it!" or "you already explained that twice" (the author likes to go back a reiterate major plot points,,, repeatedly.)
    However the plot was very entertaining and well conceived. I always dislike when the author makes the main character blissfully ignorant in order to conceal plot, when it is painfully obvious. This happens a few times but not overly so.
    The Narration was masterful.
