Fitz and the Fool Trilogy Book Series: biennaledibruges.com biennaledibruges.comAnyone who has read reviews here at Fantasy Book Review for any length of time will probably remember the love Lee our editor in chief and I have for anything written by Robin Hobb. So beautifully paced, cast, and set, these trilogies were easily the equivalent of anything else we had written — right up alongside Tolkien, Sanderson, and others. Within a few days of it arriving on my Kindle I had finished it, and I can tell you that if you had any doubts about her talent waning as the years moved on, you can dismiss those concerns right now! Robin Hobb is at the top of her game again, and returning to her most beloved character — FitzChivalry Farseer. But it has, and he has the scars to prove it — from the loss of Nighteyes and his separation from the Fool to the many that are carved during the story. The pacing is slow, but not in the way you think. Robin Hobb draws this book out like a great cup of tea, or the way a fire smoulders to life with the right attention.

A s George RR Martin takes his time over a new instalment from the Game of Thrones world, much to the frustration of his legions of fans, fellow fantasy writer Robin Hobb has finished the final book in her part series. More than 20 years ago, Hobb set out to tell the story of the bastard son of a prince, assassin FitzChivalry Farseer. Hobb, who is softly spoken and carefully deliberate in her choice of words, sounds relieved about coming to the end of a story she felt she had finished at least twice before. Embarking on the final novel was, she says, a scary prospect. And she was wary of the trap many fantasy writers fall into of letting their story get away from them, unravelling hopelessly over an endless series of volumes. Her writing is superb, her world-building irresistible, her storylines both hell-for-leather exciting and deeply introspective. And I think silly is more dangerous than impossible.
Prince FitzChivalry Farseer's daughter Bee was violently abducted from Withywoods by Servants of the Four in their search for the Unexpected Son, foretold to wield great power. With Fitz in pursuit, the Servants fled through a Skill-pillar, leaving no trace. It seems certain that they and their young hostage have perished in the Skill-river. Clerres, where White Prophets were trained by the Servants to set the world on a better path, has been corrupted by greed. Fitz is determined to reach the city and take vengeance on the Four, not only for the loss of Bee but also for their torture of the Fool. Accompanied by FitzVigilant, son of the assassin Chade, Chade's protege Spark and the stableboy Perseverance, Bee's only friend, their journey will take them from the Elderling city of Kelsingra, down the perilous Rain Wild River, and on to the Pirate Isles. Their mission for revenge will become a voyage of discovery, as well as of reunions, transformations and heartrending shocks.
Today, Fitz, as ever our depressive, clever-but-obtuse narrator, is in his 40s, enjoying his "haven of rest and peace" in Withywoods.
