There FitzChivalry Farseer, gutted by the loss of his wolf bondmate, must take up residence at Buckkeep as a journeyman assassin. Posing as a bodyguard, Fitz becomes the eyes and ears behind the walls, guiding a kingdom straying closer to civil strife each day.

Martin “[Robin Hobb] ranks near the top of the high fantasy field.… [She] juggles all the balls with aplomb, besides providing spot-on characterizations.” —Publishers Weekly “Solid storytelling with warmth and heart.” —The Kansas City Star
