I liked the trilogy, 5 Aug. 2007
Ok. The farseer trilogy and its follow up the tawny man were superb. Some of the best books I've ever read and Robin Hobb continues in the first person that I think she does far better than anyone else.
What you've got to accept with the Soldiers son Trilogy is that the character is been driven against his will by the magic and so sometimes he comes out as a bit of "whing bag". Get past that and you can enjoy the books more. The Renegades magic is a really good ending to a really good trilogy. There are a few twists in the ending but what I liked about this final book was the whole battle with his other self and the magic. Robin Hobb then ties up all the loose ends in the final few chapters in an adept way albeit one or two parts are a little mushy. Highly recommended.
