3.0 out of 5 stars Sad hero, 4 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Complete Soldier Son Trilogy: Shaman's Crossing, Forest Mage, Renegade's Magic (Kindle Edition)
I like Robin Hobb's writing, her world's are always believable,well thought out, full of convincing detail and always different to the normal fantasy worlds. Her characters are always believable, which is also her failing and the reason I only give this trilogy three stars. The hero is an insecure character, who spends more of his time doubting himself than actually being heroic. He invariably misses the blatantly obvious and worries more about doing the right thing than actually doing the right thing. A perfectly believable person but annoying as a hero. Do not let this put you off these books, as the writing is excellent and has an original storyline.
