Customer Review

on 25 November 2013
A beautiful little back story into the Tales of the First witted Farseer Prince, as hinted at in both the assasins and fools trilogies, its a very well written short story, but i wont give any *SPOILERS*, just too say if you wanted to be whisked back to old buckeep castle and peek through the eyes of the folk of old buck then this will appeal to anyone who has read through Ms. Hobbs previous collections
(However I wouldn't reccomend this as a stand alone novel to someone who hasn't read any of the Farseer trilogies. If you were hoping for a quick introduction to Ms. Hobbs style you may be better served by trying Assassins Aprentice as the depth, detail and characterisation in this Novella do not do justice to her full Novels.)
My only complaint is that this Novella fails to give the full story behind all the politics and predjuces involved, and lacks the depth & detail i've come to expect from this fantastic author. This really would have been a very satisfying full novel, and the desire for more leaves a diminished impression of an otherwise very good story, that no completist should be without
