Publisher's Summary

The stunning conclusion to Robin Hobb's Fitz and the Fool trilogy, which began with Fool's Assassin and Fool's Quest.

More than 20 years ago, the first epic fantasy novel featuring FitzChivalry Farseer and his mysterious, often maddening friend the Fool struck like a bolt of brilliant lightning. Now New York Times best-selling author Robin Hobb brings to a momentous close the third trilogy featuring these beloved characters in a novel of unsurpassed artistry that is sure to endure as one of the great masterworks of the genre.

Fitz's young daughter, Bee, has been kidnapped by the Servants, a secret society whose members not only dream of possible futures but use their prophecies to add to their wealth and influence. Bee plays a crucial part in these dreams - but just what part remains uncertain.

As Bee is dragged by her sadistic captors across half the world, Fitz and the Fool, believing her dead, embark on a mission of revenge that will take them to the distant island where the Servants reside - a place the Fool once called home and later called prison. It was a hell the Fool escaped, maimed and blinded, swearing never to return.

For all his injuries, however, the Fool is not as helpless as he seems. He is a dreamer, too, able to shape the future. And though Fitz is no longer the peerless assassin of his youth, he remains a man to be reckoned with - deadly with blades and poison and adept in Farseer magic. And their goal is simple: to make sure not a single Servant survives their scourge.

    "A funeral to end a master piece."

    There are few things that stirred such emotion as this series and more specifically this recording. There few words to convey such deep and unabating grief I felt towards the end. It was like losing a friend. Robin Hobb has once again outdone herself.The characters and their development during the book all culminated this glorious conclusion. Elliot Hill should feel proud of his rendering of the final book of this series. He brought alive the words as written while maintaining the emotions imparted therein. So long Fitz, Nighteyes, and The Fool; happy hunting.

    "Great book. Better read."
    Would you listen to Assassin's Fate again? Why?

    Not likely. Most Hobb's books I have listened to multiple times. I just can't stand the voice used for the for the Fool or Amber. I find myself wincing and it distracts me from the story. Will read again.. Already have to be honest.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love all the characters in the book. Loved revisiting old friends.


    What three words best describe Elliot Hill’s performance?

    Overall performance is fine. Just voice does not match my mind's view of some of my favorite characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The ending I Listened to because could not read through the tears. Without spoilers not safe to drive vehicle while listening to last 3 hours.


    Any additional comments?

    Not sorry I bought the audible book. Love Robin Hobb, but glad I held off buying the first two audible books in this trilogy set. Have all three in Hardback and ebooks. When I revisit them won't be tempted to listen but will curl up with the physical books.

    "Heart wrenching"

    This was lovely pain. I listened at 2.0 double speed in helpless suspense and anxiety. I will never forget these characters and this world. Thank you Robin for making me laugh, rage, cry and care so much that it hurt. A satisfying unforseen end to a great series.

    "Another great book from Robin Hobb."

    Love the stories and characters she creates. The torment and tragedy of Fitz and the Fool make for heart wrenching stories. If you want a story that can take you away and make you feel for the characters this and the rest of this series are it. Thank you Robin keep up the great work,. you are a true artist.

    Story
    "Slow, but a solid conclusion"
    If you could sum up Assassin's Fate in three words, what would they be?

    Inevitable, engaging, and emotional.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is a tough story to get through, largely because of the constant turmoil of favorite characters. However, if you have read many of Hobb's books, this is something to be expected. She wraps up many story lines in this book, not just Fitz & the Fool.


    What didn’t you like about Elliot Hill’s performance?

    For the narrative parts of the book, Elliot Hills performance is decent enough. His pace and voice are both soothing and pleasant. However, his female voices are intensely annoying. He just doesn't have the knack it. It's unfortunate because there are several major female characters, and its' rough listening to it.
