Title: Fool’s Assassin
Author: Robin Hobb
Series: The Fitz and The Fool #1
Release Date: August 12, 2014
The Overview: FitzChivalry—royal bastard and former king’s assassin—has left his life of intrigue behind. As far as the rest of the world knows, FitzChivalry Farseer is dead and buried. Masquerading as Tom Badgerlock, Fitz is now married to his childhood sweetheart, Molly, and leading the quiet life of a country squire. Though Fitz is haunted by the disappearance of the Fool, who did so much to shape Fitz into the man he has become, such private hurts are put aside in the business of daily life, at least until the appearance of menacing, pale-skinned strangers casts a sinister shadow over Fitz’s past . . . and his future. Now, to protect his new life, the former assassin must once again take up his old one. . . .

As excited as I am for all the new amazing books coming out within the next year, the release of Robin Hobb’s new book The Fool’s Assassin is by far the one I am most looking forward to! Her body of work contains some of the most profound and memorable moments in my reading history and was partially responsible for giving me the kickstart I needed to start this book blog. I can’t wait to see where Hobb takes these characters next!
If you have not yet read this author, I would recommend starting with the Assassin’s Apprentice. :-)
