Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Young Fitz, the illegitimate son of the noble Prince Chivalry, is ignored by all royalty except the devious King Shrewd, who has had him tutored him in the dark arts of the assassin. He has barely survived his first, soul-shattering mission, and returns to the court where he is thrown headfirst into the tumult of royal life. With the King near death, and Fitz's only ally off on a seemingly hopeless quest, the throne itself is threatened. Meanwhile, the treacherous Red Ship Raiders have renewed their attacks on the Six Duchies, slaughtering the inhabitants of entire seaside towns. In this time of great peril, it soon becomes clear that the fate of the kingdom may rest in Fitz's hands--and his role in its salvation may require the ultimate sacrifice.

I would agree with the other reviewer-not quite as strong as the first book. Very entertaining and gripping none the less. Well worth reading, just to find out what happen's next, and get into the third book.

Continuing in the spirit of the first book, this book is a gripping tale. The characters are engaging and the world is fascinating. However, minor inconsistencies throughout were irritating and tended to make it a less satisfying read than the first book. I would recommend this series to a friend, but not to someone that isn't already a fan of fantasy.
