I’m becoming a big fan of Robin Hobb. Some of her work might feel depressing for some, but you can’t deny how well she writes and how connected you get with the characters. She puts them through the ringer and you, as a reader, get depressed about the character’s fate because you’re so invested in them. That is a sign of good writing.
Fitz continues to be a great character to follow. He’s got a lot to deal with and he’s still a teenager. King’s to protect, Prince’s to fight, a girl to love, zombie-type monsters to kill, and a wolf to befriend. Lots of political intrigue and great character development of old and new people.
So if you’ve already read Assassin’s Apprentice and not sure if you should continue the series, I say go for it, now. 🙂
