Book Review: Assassin’s Quest

Assassin's Quest
Assassin’s Quest by Robin Hobb

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This final book in the trilogy broke my heart. I have the worst book hangover! My emotions are all over the place!
I was so surprised by the turn that the story took, and the massive scope of the lives of the characters. It all starts out so simple and then everything is changed and the whole world turns upside down. Masterful writing! So many plots threads that came together in unexpected ways, and I was in complete suspense wondering what wild thing could possible happen next!
(I won’t really say anything else about the plot, because it would be spoilers.)

My characters! Oh, my own darling characters! Fitz, Nighteyes, the Fool, Kettricken and Verity, and so many other beautiful supporting characters… I love them all. My heart is wrung into pieces for them. I feel like they are MY people, real people in my heart. I connected so strongly with each of them, and was utterly immersed in their stories.

I love it when you are reading a book and you completely forget that it’s a book. This story became real for me, and the hours flew by while I was inside Fitz’s world.
I can’t wait to read more of Robin Hobb!
