Review published on August 9, 2017.
As one of my favourite authors, Robin Hobb cannot really do any wrong. This last part of the trilogy – and possibly of the whole saga – is great. I really enjoyed it although I thought that it was overlong, mainly due to Fitz’s repetitive introspection. It’s nice to see the Liveship Traders and Farseer trilogies brought together and seemingly to a close. The writing is engaging and fascinating, full of characterisation and descriptions (but not over-described). All the major characters are involved at some point (I needed reminding who some of them were). Thoroughly recommended but don’t bother reading it if you haven’t read her previous novels. Wonderful stuff.
