    I have always enjoyed Robin Hobbs' books, definitely one of my favorite fantasy authors. The Farseer triology, liveship traders, and Tawny man are awe..Show More »

    Young Nevare Burvelle is the second son of a second son. Traditionally in Gernia, the firstborn son is heir to the family fortunes, the second son bears a sword and the third son is consecrated to the priesthood. Nevare will follow his father – newly made a lord by the King – into the cavalry; to the frontier and thence to an advantageous marriage, to carry on the Burvelle name. It is a golden future, and Nevare looks forward to it with relish.

    Robin Hobb's thrilling Soldier Son trilogy comes to its conclusion in Renegade's Magic. Nevare Burvelle stands accused of a host of heinous crimes, including murder. And he remains under the thrall of the Speck magic that twists his psyche into a ruthless alter-ego. But all is not lost. Perhaps if he asserts control of this other self, he will emerge transformed and triumphant.

    The people of Getty's town remember the death of their cemetery soldier vividly. They remember believing him guilty of unspeakable crimes, condemning him, and then watching as other men of his unit beat him until he no longer drew breath. But Nevare Burvelle didn't die that day, though everyone believes they saw it happen. He was cornered by a power far more intractable than an angry mob.
