The harrowing adventures of FitzChivalry Farseer and his enigmatic friend, the Fool, continue in Robin Hobb's triumphant follow-up to Fool's Assassin. But Fool's Quest is more than just a sequel. With the artistry and imagination her fans have come to expect, Hobb builds masterfully on all that has gone before, revealing devastating secrets and shocking conspiracies that cast a dark shadow over the history of Fitz and his world - a shadow that now stretches to darken all future hope.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator, I was so confuse by the narration.

What could Robin Hobb have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Once again Robbin Hobb has made fritz a whiny character. I have been waiting for this book to come out over a year and sad to say i was so disappointed. Where were all the action it promised, I thought we were suppose to see Frits kicking butts and take names. All that this was is a bunch of whining.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Get another narrator.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No because I would fall asleep.

Any additional comments?

I'm don't with this, going to get out and save to good memories of the passed books.

FitzChivalry - royal bastard and former king’s assassin - has left his life of intrigue behind. As far as the rest of the world knows, FitzChivalry Farseer is dead and buried. Masquerading as Tom Badgerlock, Fitz is now married to his childhood sweetheart, Molly, and leading the quiet life of a country squire. Though Fitz is haunted by the disappearance of the Fool, who did so much to shape Fitz into the man he has become, such private hurts are put aside in the business of daily life, at least until the appearance of menacing, pale-skinned strangers casts a sinister shadow over Fitz’s past...and his future.

Gavin Guile is the Prism, the most powerful man in the world. He is high priest and emperor, a man whose power, wit, and charm are all that preserves a tenuous peace. But Prisms never last, and Guile knows exactly how long he has left to live: Five years to achieve five impossible goals. But when Guile discovers he has a son, born in a far kingdom after the war that put him in power, he must decide how much he's willing to pay to protect a secret that could tear his world apart.

Would you listen to The Black Prism again? Why?

No because narrating was SOSOSOSO bad.

What didn’t you like about Cristofer Jean’s performance?

This is also my 1st time listing to Cristofer narration and I was not a good experience.

Any additional comments?

I like the book a lot and really got into the characters but I had to force myself to finish listing, the narration was so bad. I can't wait for the next book and to liste to the new narrator.
