NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The stunning conclusion to Robin Hobb’s Fitz and the Fool trilogy, which began with Fool’s Assassin and Fool’s Quest

“Every new Robin Hobb novel is a cause for celebration. Along with millions of her other fans, I delight in every visit to the Six Duchies, the Rain Wilds, and the Out Islands, and can’t wait to see where she’ll take me next.”—George R. R. Martin 

More than twenty years ago, the first epic fantasy novel featuring FitzChivalry Farseer and his mysterious, often maddening friend the Fool struck like a bolt of brilliant lightning. Now New York Times bestselling author Robin Hobb brings to a momentous close the third trilogy featuring these beloved characters in a novel of unsurpassed artistry that is sure to endure as one of the great masterworks of the genre.

Fitz’s young daughter, Bee, has been kidnapped by the Servants, a secret society whose members not only dream of possible futures but use their prophecies to add to their wealth and influence. Bee plays a crucial part in these dreams—but just what part remains uncertain.

As Bee is dragged by her sadistic captors across half the world, Fitz and the Fool, believing her dead, embark on a mission of revenge that will take them to the distant island where the Servants reside—a place the Fool once called home and later called prison. It was a hell the Fool escaped, maimed and blinded, swearing never to return.

For all his injuries, however, the Fool is not as helpless as he seems. He is a dreamer too, able to shape the future. And though Fitz is no longer the peerless assassin of his youth, he remains a man to be reckoned with—deadly with blades and poison, and adept in Farseer magic. And their goal is simple: to make sure not a single Servant survives their scourge.

What an amazing journey this saga has been! Our last adventure with Fitz, Nighteyes, and the Fool did not disappoint. I was on the edge of my seat from the build up to the bitter-sweet end. Though I am sad that we must say goodbye to this series, Robin Hobb did right by our boys. She gave us a satisfying ending, and left us wanting more. I enjoyed every minute of the story, and even shed a few tears at the end. I really hope there will be more books to come featuring some of the characters we have grown to love! On the other hand, the narrator was just awful! The accents were over the top, and not in keeping with the characters. Kettricken, Chade, and a few others sounded so pretentious that I might have disliked their characters all together had I not read the other series. The Fool's accent was simply painful to listen to. Like nails on a chalkboard every time he spoke. It neatly ruined his character for me completely. I wish this narrator would have listened to the previous narror's readings in order to make sure hus accents were in keeping with the rest of the series.

I agree it has been a journey. Sad to see it end. There are no words to say how I feel. Farewell Fitz, The Fool, and Night Eyes.
