I really enjoyed this book. I adore and sympathize with Fitz all the way. Which is surprising because in the past I don’t do so well with a male first person POV. I have a harder time connecting. I think it worked this time because we start with him as a little boy at the age of 6. Overall, this is a sad story, Fitz goes through a lot of loss. But he keeps going and he keeps trying to find his place in the world. I like that about him.
There is a good deal of political intrigue, but I found it interesting and easy to follow. And I did not see the Big Bad Guy coming. At least I knew he was Bad, but not Big Bad.
This is the first in a series and I really want to read the rest, mostly just to see if Fitz does get some more happiness in the end.
Happy Friday and Happy Three Day Weekend to my American readers. 🙂
