The epilogue initially struck me as strange and irrelevant. In the midst of the search for Dutiful, there was a myriad of characters development and well polished world-building elements to be found. I need to stop this review. Hobb continues to expand her world-building exploration of the Wit and the Skill in this book in ways that intrigue and provoke reflection on a variety of topics, from small-scale ones such as personal boundaries in relationships to larger-scale ones such as how humans in general tend to “other” and find reasons to hate and fear one other.

I think it’s written as a linear series and should be read as one! The difficulty of coping with the passage of time, the racial prejudice against the Witted, loneliness, and most of all, animal companionship, are all the main themes of this book.

Why the Narwhal clan would think killing a dragon for her JUST for the ability to kill their forged family members is a good idea is beyond me. She doesn’t make it boring, but rather gets us into a comfort zone from which we can branch when it is time for stuff to happen.


Believing that his glory days are over, he’s surprised when fate in the form of the Fool pulls him back into the political intrigues that plague the Six Duchies. It’s summarized foool Fitz. The truthI discovered, is a tree that grows as a man gains access to experience.

Or the pastoral was only a means to make sense of the later action. Do not you sense it? Hobb as Fitz didn’t make a very good case for it, and neither did anyone else.

There is also, of course, the fact that her books are highly enjoyable and feature many strong and memorable characters. Yet when we actually interact with us she seems capable, if naive. See where Fobin going? I love how these two worlds seem so different yet are part of the same realm. And only if you wished me to.

Fool’s Errand by Robin Hobb book review

I have read all three of the aforementioned series several times, with this one being read with my family aloud so that my husband can experience this wonderful story. But now, into his isolated life, visitors begin to arrive: She is an author that has no interest in rushing and feels it is important and rightly so that we know what has transpired in the fifteen years since the end of The Farseer Trilogy.

With Dutiful safe again, Queen Kettrick A crossroads, a vertex, a vortex.

The Fool and FitzChivalry Farseer band together once more to ride against the foes of the Farseer royal family in the kingdom of the Six Duchies. What do they call you these days?

It just all came together in a single moment, and shifted something in my soul a little bit. I found that even though I had really enjoyed Fitz’s struggles and character up to that point, he bored me and annoyed me so much in Assassin’s Quest I wasn’t sure if he was going to frrand a character I would enjoy reading about anew, luckily my fears were quickly put to rest.

I can’t errxnd it enough, I just love Robin Hobb’s ability to create and describe emotions. To get the free app, enter your mobile phone number. Although it is not necessary to read this trilogy it does add a certain extra enjoyment to The Tawny Man series; mentions of Bingtown, dragons and The Rain Wilds have special resonance and there is a section in the book when Fitz visits Others Islands, a beach full of treasure. Fifteen years have passed since the end of the Red Ship War with the terrifying Outislanders.

Fitz, Fool and of course Nighteyes are absolute heroes and can do no wrong in my eyes.
