I was looking for a trilogy of 1990s-style (pre-Twilight, Hunger Games, Game of Thrones explosion) fantasy. One that was true to the genre with a few understated stereotypes and not too much predictability. This trilogy was exactly that. ASSASIN'S APPRENTICE really sucked me in. Even though I don't generally like 1st person narration, Fitz told his story well in a (mostly) humble reflective voice that was easy to enjoy. The characters he interacts with are beautifully developed with strengths, weaknesses, and flaws on both sides of the story. I enjoyed every word of the first book. ROYAL ASSASSIN was a book with more meat to it. The characters are mostly known, and Fitz is growing up. He is finding his place in the world, learning about love and friendship, and trying to define who he is. His rivals start to become his enemies and he starts to gain some confidence. The story also takes a darker turn here as the challenges he will face make themselves known. ASSASSIN'S QUEST had a more emotional tone to it than the others. I confess that, in the beginning, I wasn't sure that I wanted to see where it would go because it started off so bleak. I made myself continue reading and was really glad I did. The final book in this trilogy doesn't disappoint. I love the way Robin Hobb treats her characters. She doesn't put them in difficult situations without reason. She let's them grow and change, and she doesn't pull her punches. It makes them all seem so alive. Even her minor charters have personalities and stories that make them interesting and unique. I look forward to reading more of her books in the future. If you consider yourself fan of the fantasy genre, you must read some of her works. She truly is an amazing talent.

This series is amazing, great characters(especially fitz), the writing is perfect, and the world is very harsh yet easily relatable. This should be mandatory reading for everyone.

Imbued with vast imagination and characters who are both flawed and remarkable, this story is hard to put down and easy to love.

This series is great id recommend buying all nine( plus the seven spin offs if you don't mind not having the main characters in the story). But one caveat its actually a dollar cheaper to buy them indiviually.

This was an amazing journey to take as i read the life of a small boy who was left on those stone steps. This is not about a kingdom or an epic story but its about a boy becoming a man making hard choices. This is not a happy trail leading to a promised better tomorrow but rather a tale shapes character

I wasn't impressed, the story could have been told in two books instead of three. Author kept repeating himself, or he kept going over the things that had happened in his past constantly, also rehashing his feelings constantly. I kept loosing interest and had to skip over the repeat sections. Not worth the e-nook price and I wouldn't buy the books.

Assassin's Apprentice, the first book, is 400 pages of enchantment. The second book, Royal Assassin, is 600 pages of adventure. The third book, Assassin's Quest, promised to be a full 800 pages of misery, but improved after the first, oh, 300 pages of threats and beatings. Good to folliw a hero who is, in spite of all, an honorable man. I want to say that it was well written, but stumble over a very few grammatical errors. I will probably continue with this author, although not right away.
