I read this trilogy because I love her Assassin works so much... But this was hard work... Some tantalisingly good thoughts and the usual farsighted structure... But bogged down by page upon page upon page of dithering and anguished Victorian-stylee emoting. Tiresome and should have been edited down. Really didn't need to be a trilogy, fashionable though that shape is. Could have easily been tightened up into a Part 1 and Part 2.

After reading a lot of mixed reviews for a couple of years on this trilogy I eventually bought it as I had an Amazon gift voucher and I thought well if this trilogy isn't up to the mark as the others have been then I really haven't lost anything!

However, there are very few authors who can really play with my emotions the way Ms Hobb does. After reading the wonderful Farseer Trilogy plus the others which are just as good I was spellbound and was very apprehensive to even start these books! Fortunately, I was captured after the first three chapters and read on. Epiny I thought would grate on me, but I found myself admiring her and in her own way is a heroine. I loved her eccentricity but also her down to earth side when she could help Nevare overcome his doubts. I hope she makes at least a cameo appearance in the second of the trilogy.

Nevare, as with Fitz is doubtful of his worth and I find this more appealing in a protagonist. I feel myself supporting him along the way and admire his natural need for fairness even when it means having to help an enemy.

If you like me have been doubting the worth of this trilogy, give it a go. I know we are all so fond of Fitz et al but Nevare and his story is wonderful too (of course I hope the the next two are just as worthy ;) )

I am enjoying this. I am halfway through the second book of the trilogy, having bought it all in one. It is not as fast moving as the Fitz chronicles, or the sequels, but I want to keep reading. Book 3 may be a revelation...it may not. All in all, I am glad I bought these. They are well written, as are all Hobbs' books. The translation to Kindle is good. The world in which they are based is realistic and accurately portrayed with no discrepancies that I have noticed. If the hero isn't quite as enthralling as Fitz, and there are no dragons...yet...well, it is a different world. A different story. And one that is worth reading.

I got these on a special offer for only 49p thinking they had good reviews and would be worth a go. I loved them and if I'd got only the first one cheap would have coughed up full whack for the other two. I'll definately be purchasing more of Robin Hobb's books.
I'll leave itto others more eloquent to describe the story, I'll just say, go on, treat yourself, you won't regret it.

Its worth reading if you enjoy Robin Hobbs books, however it was hard work. It was my second attempt, but this time I finished it and I am glad I did. It is an unusual concept and the leading character is certainly unusual. My only concern was that some of the loose ends had not been tied off. Maybe she might come back at a later date to link it with the "Specks" again

Robin Hobb is an excellent writer. Keeps you guessing all the way through. I downloaded this trilogy to my Kindle Fire and therefore take it everywhere . A totally different book from the Rainwilde Chronicles and yet still holds the same sort of Magic and excitement. Already reading the second book of the three and will be disappointed when I get to the end, begging for more of the same. A great read.

I have read most of Hobbs writing and really enjoyed it. This was completely the opposite. A really hard slog and in the end I just gave up. The idea and general story are good but it's so slow with pages and pages of rumination from the various characters. Very disappointing and I would not recommend it. The Tawny Man books on the other hand.........really good.

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.
