An extraordinary culmination to one of the best and most immersive high fantasy series I’ve ever read. After the extraordinary events of book 2, our hero Fitz leaves behind all he knows and sets out on his own quest. His amazing journey closes every loose end and leaves this reader with an abiding sense of satisfaction and joy. Hobb brings to her series incredible world-building, detailed characters that we care passionately about, and adventure beyond imagining.
Recommended for older teens and up due to violence and war, but recommended primarily for adults who can look back, like our narrator, on the follies of youth. An exceptional read.
