Even better than the Farseer Triology,
This review is from: Fool's Errand (The Tawny Man, Book 1) (Hardcover)
This book was even better than its previous novels of the Farseer triolgy. It shows Fitz grown up and healed, to some extent, of the wounds her recieved at the conclusion of Assassins Quest. He lives quietly with Nighteyes and his foster child Hap, until of course the past pays a visit.
This book shows Hobb's ability to create and define charcters through beautiful language and strong detail. Although I generally dislike first person, I find it too constraining on the text, I think it really works with this series. FitzChivalry is such a defined character that one comes to know him very well.
The plot was fast moving and believable. Loved characters from the other series are all present, Chade, Kettriken, and my favourite The Fool. As well as the inclusion of new ones, which look to be promising.
The novel will make you laugh and cry (the end was bittersweet for me) but it is worth it. Buy it you will not be disappointed. However one last note, the Voyager cover is much better, so if you can buy that one.
