    Description

    The second volume in Robin Hobb’s internationally best-selling Farseer series.

    We are here Fitz, you and I, to change the future and the world…

    Fitz dreams of Red-Ship Raiders sacking a coastal village, leaving not a single man, woman, or child alive. Tortured by this terrible vision, he returns to the Six Duchies court where all is far from well.

    King Shrewd has been struck down by a mysterious illness and King-in-waiting, Verity, spends all his time attempting to conjure storms to confuse and destroy the Red-Ship Raiders. And when he leaves on an insane mission to seek out the mystical Elderings, Fitz is left alone and friendless but for the wolf Nighteyes and the King’s Fool with his cryptic prophesies.

    Commentaires

    “Hobb is one of the great modern fantasy writers … what makes her novels as addictive as morphine is not just their imaginative brilliance but the way her characters are compromised and manipulated by politics.” ( The Times)
    “In today’s crowded fantasy market Robin Hobb’s books are like diamonds in a sea of zircons” (George R. R. Martin)

    Puissant

    Bouquin génial mais je comprends pourquoi je m'étais lassé quand j'avais 14 ans. L'ecrivaine à créée une histoire génial assez complexe qui nécessite du temps pour tout détailler. Il y a donc, je ne dirais pas des longueurs parce que j'ai adoré, mais des moments plus lent. Cela dit j'ai hâte d'écouter la suite !!!!

    downgrade

    somewhere in the middle the amount of stupid decisions made by what looked like smart characters made me lost interest in the series now only my compulsive instinct to put an end to things is what will have me hearing the next one.

    This is 90's Game of Thrones to me

    Brilliant story with really good flow and gripping arc. All the Characters are there for a reason

    Great tale, yet slow at some points

    Great listen, but sometimes the story slows down and looses the listener. But, towards the end these problems fade away.

    To much angst and not enough intelligence in story

    I can’t finish this book. The characters are both hypercapable in some aspects but then also unbelievably useless in others. Provides a background for lots of self flagellation and angst, but not much else.
    How can you continue accepting a “king” who is so cunning and manipulative he has everyone tied in knots and scared of reprisal, yet he allows a blatantly treasonous and shallow son to keep attempting to kill or disable him, and also orders no one else to stop him either. They all bloody deserve it for being so incompetent.
    Eventually just gave me the irrits

    Some EXTRAORDINARY pronunciations

    When a narrator can jolt a listener out of a world created by the author it is woeful. It's so hard to pick up the thread and move on when the irritation lasts a while. This narrator seemed incapable of sounding o as in hot, cot, dot etc. He insisted on adding an r... so hot became hort, cot- cort etc. I'm pretty sure it was an affectation (probably trying for received British accent) because every so often he forgot ... er I mean forgort haha and pronounced that sound as most people would... When he did slip up it was when he was moving faster through the text at moments of tension. He put in an OK effort in tone, pitch, speed etc, but there were a few 'blinders' in pronunication appart frorm the o sound.
    If the story had been weaker I would have given up long before the end. Do editors ever listen to the product part way through a recording??? If they did, they could catch these irritants and deliver a much better product... er... prorduct.

    Stunning

    This book is quite simply stunning and an amazing follow up to 'Assassin's Apprentice'. The audiobook is beautifully told, too, and thus you must add it to your library!

    Even more awesome than part 1

    I really enjoyed part 1 of this trilogy, Assassin's Apprentice, and hoped that this even longer sequel would be as good. Well, as it turned out I found it even better! Hobb's style of writing, especially when combined with Boehmer's narration, evokes something like a combination of a Grimm fairytale atmosphere, with hints of mythology and ancient lore. I could even detect some Star Wars, with a grand romance, great evil, lots of action and something resembling Jedi force use!

    This is fantasy as it should be done. Can't get enough of it.

    I cannot wait to start listening to part 3, and then on to the other six (!) Realms of the Elderings books (two more trilogies, yea!)
