This review is from: Fool's Errand (The Tawny Man Trilogy, Book 1): Book One of the Tawny Man: 1/3 (Paperback)
I thought this was the most wonderful story, it stood on its own but is also a more than worthy sequel. Robin Hobbs narrative just keeps on getting better, the characters in this book have grown and developed from the Farseer books, into people that you can really care about. The relationships have such depth and feeling, and Hobbs description and way with words means that you feel every event personally. I look forward to The Golden Fool with great anticipation. I enjoyed the Liveship trilogy and certainly think you need to read these and the Farseer trilogy to get the best from the Tawny Man. I never thought I would enjoy a 'fantasy' story so much but this has got to be one of the best tales I have read, and I do read a lot. I am in a way dreading the final instalment as I have an awful feeling that we may lose more of the central characters. But these tales are compulsive reading and once started, putting them down is painful. I guess I will just have to start again and reread them to pass the time until Fools Fate is issued.
