A great fantasy novel that tweaks the emotions,
This review is from: Fool's Errand (The Tawny Man Trilogy, Book 1): No. 1 (Paperback)
I am becoming a little jaded when it comes to buying fantasy novels. This book reminds me why I enjoy the genre so much. It is one of those that is difficult to put down, I find that rare nowadays.
This book focusses on Fitz 15 years after the "assasin" books. He has settled into a life as a rural recluce with a foster son. Unfortunately for him his capabilities are required by Chade and Queen Kettricken.
To meet the requests of Chade etc, Fitz must come to terms with how his status is not what it was. You become enmeshed in his character. If you have read the previous books you will understand his history, identify with Fitz more closely and consequently appreiciate his position more.
One aspect I didn't expect was the tie in with the "liveship" books.
Anyway, well done Robin, a stirring read.
