"The stunning conclusion to Robin Hobb's Fitz and the Fool trilogy, which began with Fool's Assassin and Fool's Quest "Every new Robin Hobb novel is a cause for celebration.Along with millions of her other fans, I delight in every visit to the Six Duchies, the Rain Wilds, and the Out Islands, and can't wait to see where she'll take me next."--George R. R. Martin. More than twenty 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 bestselling 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.

This is a long and fantastic finale not only to the story of Fitz and the Fool, but in a way ties all the Mad Ship and Dragon books together with it. I had to work to remember some of the characters I read many years ago. Needless to say it was worth the effort and patience it required.

SPOILER ALERT: Although it should come as no surprise with the title "Assassin's fate". As usual, a gigantic book so well written that one forges on, even thought there's probably too much repetitive self-reflection. Fitz's fate is both gruesome and transcendent, so if you don't want nightmares, don't read the end just before you go to bed.

Fitz and the Fool are my two favourite fantasy characters and this book was a fitting finale to their story.

I loved this series and I will miss Fitz & The Fool. Thank you Robin Hobb for the great books. They made me laugh and cry.
