Like much high fantasy these days, the book could have been pruned more than a trifle; on the other hand, along with the extra wordage come extra measures of characterization, world building, and emotionally compelling scenes of both magic and battle.

The autumn of the third year of the Red Ship War was a bitter one for King-in-Waiting Verity. His warships had been his dream. He had founded all his hopes on them. He had believed he could rid his own coast of Raiders, and be so successful at it that he could send forth raiders against the hostile Outisland coasts even during the worst of the winter storms. Despite early victories, the ships never achieved the command of the coast that he had hoped they would. Early winter found him with a fleet of five ships, two of which had recently sustained severe damage.

Assassin's Quest is a 1997 fantasy novel by American writer Robin Hobb, the third in her Farseer Trilogy. It follows the exploits of FitzChivalry Farseer, whose narrative continues in Fool's Errand. FitzChivalry Farseer is raised from the dead with Wit magic, becoming more wolf than human. Only Burrich and Chade know he survived his tortures in Regal's dungeons.

Praise for Robin Hobb and Assassin’s Quest Fantasy as it ought to be written. Robin Hobb’s books are diamonds in a sea of zircons. George R. R. Martin Superbly written, wholly satisfying, unforgettable: better than any fantasy trilogy in print-including mine! -Melanie Rawn. The final book of The Farseer Trilogy was, for me, excellent yet disappointing Читать весь отзыв.

As this epic trilogy reaches its unforgettable conclusion, young FitzChivalry faces his toughest opponent ever: himself. Embittered and broken, his body reclaimed from the grave and his spirit from the care of his bond-wolf Nighteyes, Fitz awakens to a world where everything he once held dear is in ruins. King Shrewd is dead; Prince Regal has claimed the throne and rules the kingdom with a cruel and selfish negligence. Molly has deserted him for parts unknown. Queen Kettricken and her unborn child have fled to the mountains with the Fool, Verity is lost seeking the elusive Elderlings, and Fitz's presumed death forever bars him from Buckkeep. The only companions he had left in his solitude are Chade and Burrich, who wrestle him reluctantly back to humanity after his sojourn in Nighteyes' mind.But angry with the lot Fate has cast him, Fitz drives away even these loyal companions, and for the first time faces his life on his own, without anyone to guide or lead him. And what he most desires is revenge against Regal, for everything the usurper has cost him. So, preparing his assassin's kit, he sets out for Regal's new capital at Tradeford, determined to murder the treacherous "king." Without guidance, though, he botches the attempt, and an urgent sending by Verity to save him leaves Fitz imprinted with the burning imperative to find and aid his true king in his quest to aid the land.Eventually fighting his way through to the mountains, he rejoins Kettricken and the Fool in a quest for Verity--and there in the Skill-shadowed hills, he discovers an ancient power and a mysterious riddle, whose answer may well change the fate of the Six Duchies forever....

I started this trilogy because of all the great reviews. I finished this trilogy because once started, I wanted to know how it ended. Such a disappointment. Hobb repeated the historical information over and over and over and over....... until I gave up and began to skip sections that were repetitious. The main character Fitz was basically a screw-up, and did not improve with age, it was like he had "Loser" stamped on his forehead. I mean really, 3 books later and he still can't get anything right?! The most interesting characters in the book were the wolf and the "Fool". There are hours and hours and hours of conflict, but the resolution to the whole mess is summed up in about 1/2 hour, and Fitz doesn't even play a part in the resolution once it starts. This could have been a fantastic saga, but it wasn't.

Do you like books about suffering bastards (literally)? Do you like the protagonist to get his butt handed to him time and time again but somehow come out of it with only some scars and mild PTSD? Do you like the antagonist(s) to basically "win" all the time? Do you want to question the point in living when you finish the book? Then look no further because this is the book for you! But seriously, this book is very well written and the story is unique. It's hard to gripe an author for the themes they choose but I would have liked a little less depression, doom, and overall hopelessness for the protagonists of this story. Life is hard enough, people often read to escape, I don't need to read about how freaking horrible it is for our hero of the story. Honestly, in hindsight, I would NOT have read these books but after reading the first one and part of the second I was "committed."
This is the only book, and series, I would rate 5 stars but tell everyone to avoid like the plague (getting the plague was probably the only bad thing that DIDN'T happen to the protagonist).

**Mild Spoilers Below** (Not really)
The books take an endless amount of time to go into detail of all the hardships but then speeds through anything remotely positive. Even the ending (which is mostly depressing) felt rushed and left me feeling empty inside... not a feeling I enjoy.

Robin Hobb’s Assassin’s Quest marks the end of what has become one of my favorite fantasy trilogies.

The story picks up where the second book, Royal Assassin, left off. The king is dead, slain by treachery. Fitz is thought to be dead too, and he’s broken again, this time in mind as much as body. (Hobb is rather fond of battering her protagonist.) After a long convalescence, Fitz sets out to avenge the king and find his true heir.

But the pacing remains slow, with a clear goal and some of the strongest fantasy elements (dragons and prophecies) only coming in now, in the third book. And the ending is less climactic than I expected: the final confrontations with the marauding Red Ship raiders and the king’s killer are both resolved in a few pages. Most of the story—more than usual—is about the journey to the solution rather than its application. There’s no glory for Fitz either. He’s not actually much of an assassin, but he still prefers working in the shadows, acting as an unrecognized catalyst. I also could have done with one fewer instance of Fitz being captured by and then escaping from his enemies.

Worse, the balance between showing versus telling occasionally feels off. Hobb is brilliant at demonstrating how Fitz experiences the Wit (telepathy with animals) and the Skill (telepathy with humans). But each chapter begins with a note written after the fact by Fitz, mini-information dumps that either expand on a key mechanic or summarize events happening elsewhere at the time of the narrative. Often this works as an efficient way to convey necessary-but-tedious details. But occasionally the format feels repetitive and forced, as if Hobb wrote one of these mini-essays simply because she’d locked herself into doing so. And in the least-satisfying instances, some of the series’ great mysteries are resolved in this brisk manner.

So why do I like the books so much? Because, despite everything I mentioned above, the story sings for me. The writing is beautiful, and Fitz and his wolf Nighteyes headline a cast of memorable characters. Thank goodness Hobb wrote other novels in this world. I’ll be back to read them, flaws and all.

This book/series was good. But there was a ton of skim reading. I liked how emotionally attached you get to the characters and I am even okay that it isn't a "happy ending". What i don't like is that a whole series builds up a hero and then he really isn't even significant in the end. It's just a huge let down and leaves you feeling like you wasted your time. It would be like reading lord of the rings and having pippin be a bigger hero than frodo.

Still worth a read under the right expectations.
