A treasure trove of tales from a master storyteller—the first to feature works written under both her pseudonyms, Robin Hobb and Megan Lindholm . . .
Before she became an acclaimed New York Times bestselling author, Robin Hobb received resounding critical praise for work written under the name Megan Lindholm. Though they spring from the same imagination, Hobb and Lindholm are separate, diverse identities, each with her own unique style and perspective.
The Inheritance celebrates the boundless vision of Hobb and Lindholm, bringing together for the first time classic and new short works from both names. The collection is comprised of three generous offerings from Robin Hobb, including the title story, which makes its U.S. debut here, and a brand-new tale, "Cat's Meat." Megan Lindholm contributes her Hugo and Nebula Award finalist "A Touch of Lavender" and Nebula finalist "Silver Lady and the Fortyish Man," as well as several classic and new gems.
Each piece is prefaced by a brief yet informative author's note, offering insight into each story's genesis. Fascinating, compelling, and wonderfully entertaining, The Inheritance reveals the full spectrum of skill and talent of one of the world's finest fantasy writers.
Impressive dialogue well paints characters of this almost-Cinderella (no run along a dreamy lane).
So, I would say that if you are a long time reader of Hobb's work, go ahead and read this story, it'll add another facet to your experience of Bingtown.
All ten entries are well written and affirm why Margaret Lindholm as Megan Lindholm and as Robin Hobbs is critically acclaimed.
Disturbing. I would not have ordered it had I known what the story line was. I ordered it because I usually like this author's books. Read morePublished 16 days ago by E. Collins

Two identities, one writer. Lindholm writes urban fantasy and near-future speculative fiction. Hobb writes fantasy in lush, foreign settings. Both write quite a bit about cats.Published 9 months ago by Johanna Haas
