Publisher Description

Young Fitz is the bastard son of the noble Prince Chivalry, raised in the shadow of the royal court by his father's gruff stableman. He is treated like an outcast by all the royalty except the devious King Shrewd, who has him sectetly tutored in the arts of the assassin. For in Fitz's blood runs the magic Skill--and the darker knowledge of a child raised with the stable hounds and rejected by his family. As barbarous raiders ravage the coasts, Fitz is growing to manhood. Soon he will face his first dangerous, soul-shattering mission. And though some regard him as a threat to the throne, he may just be the key to the survival of the kingdom.

Engrossing!

Robin Hobb has created a world as rich and intriguing as any caprured by JRR Tolkein or George RR Martin. Real characters, insanely great storylines, and clearly written prose make for an engrossing adventure throughout this series--The Assassin's Apprentice is a worthy introduction to Ms Hobb's world!!

The Assassin's Apprentice

If you relish reads with richly realized worlds and characters, this book is for you (and the rest of the Assassin series, followed by the Tawny Man series). Hobb creates a detailed world, redolent of our own, with characters whose histories clearly motivate their actions. It's a great series to fall into.
