Years ago, they freed a dragon from the glaciers on Aslevjal. Then they parted ways, the Fool returning to far-off Clerres, while Fitz finally claimed a wife, a family, and a home of his own.
Now, betrayed by his own people and broken by torment, the Fool has made his way back to the Six Duchies. But as Fitz attempts to heal his old friend in Buckkeep Castle, his young daughter Bee is abducted from Withywoods by pale and mysterious raiders who leave ruin and confusion in their wake.
Fitz must find a way to rescue his beloved Bee. At the same time it is the Fool’s fiercest wish to return to Clerres with the best assassin he has ever known, to gain vengeance and justice.
Can Fitz bear to take up the tools of his old trade again, even to avenge his dearest friend and save his child?
The way to read this book is just to let yourself be immersed in it. That when when you come up for air you are all, what is going on? Where am I? I was just so into the book that it could not put it down or stop thinking about it. I did read it in an elevator, I did read it while BF and I visited a friend of his.
Some things made me angry, some things made me smile and some things just warmed my heart. Some things made me murderous.
Bee was kidnapped in the last book and we get to follow her and her captures, and damn I want to hunt them all down and make those effing bastards pay!!!
All while Fitz is at Buckkeep Castle tending to the Fool, but yes when he learns of this. The hunt is on.
There are just so many things I want to say, but I am kind of lost for words. And I fear how it all will end. I fear for Fitz. I have followed his life for so long now and the fear is strong. I also really want him to bond again. The loss of Nighteyes still hurts me, and him.
SO yes I recommend this series, but if you want to feel all that lost and heartache then you have to start with the first trilogy.
