Book Recs

I just finished reading all of these in about a week, they were THAT GOOD! I could not put them down.
Thecharacter of "the fool" in these books is perhaps the most intriguing,mysterious, complex and fascinating character I've ever read. Hissemi-unrequited love for the main character, Fitz... (slash fans will love the "fool") The Fool and Fitz have a fabulous unconventionalrelationship nonetheless. The plot lines make you chew nails, cheer,cry, laugh, and every other host of emotions this author can put youthrough.

I fell in love with these characters, especially the acid tongued, androygenous, chameleon personality "fool".
(He's pictured on the Cover of Golden Fool)

I highly... HIGHLY recommend everyone read these. Best Fantasy I've read in YEARS. A fresh new author and spellbinding story teller. RAVE... Rave... RAVE!

First Trilogy:
Assasin's Apprentice
Royal Assassin
Assasin's Quest

Continued in second Trilogy:
Fool's Errand
Golden Fool
Fool's Fate

If you haven't read Liveship Traders trilogy, I highly recommend those as well. They're also really damn good and really expand the world. Although since one gets spoiled a bit by the Fool's Errand set, I actually recommend people read LIveship second.

I noticed that. I think it's in Golden Fool you find out about what the Fool did as Amber.

I've got the series ordered at border's. They only had the third book.

Poopers.

Oh yeah....

I mean I'm glad he got Molly in the end...
But really the Fool (IMO) was a much better match.

Oh, I love this series! Especially the Fool! I was recced to it by someone else, and I couldn't put down the Assassin's Trilogy down at all. I've only read the first book in the Tawny Man trilogy because I'm trying to read the Liveship Trilogy before it so I can get some of the references (though the Liveship trilogy is kinda tedious) but soon! XD

(Unrequited love is my WEAKNESS.)

Fitx has "teh gey" issues.

And I love how the Fool fucks with him over it too.
Fitz however was almost there, he would have given everything up for the fool and it was the fool who actually said "no" and then that whole stuck in the pillar thing.

She left room for a Fitz and Fool Reunion (hope hope hope)

I devour books when they're good. A book a day it was for me with these.

I did nothing else naturally. Just work, read, maybe eat and sleep a couple of hours.
